Literature
Between 2
Philo scratched his head as he looked out the door of his capsule. If he'd sat down and made a list of the things he imagined he might have found when he opened the door, "blank space" probably wouldn't have been one of the things at the top of the list… although technically it would have already been on the list before he started, so it would have been at the very top and he would have been less correct with each guess. Lesson learned? Don't bother guessing.
Once he got over the strangeness of discovering that there was nothing to discover, he started to note some of the other unusual things. Despite the endless field of white that surrounded his capsule, there didn't actually seem to be any light. When he put his hand outside he could see it clearly, when he pulled it inside it was in shadow. The light stopped at the door, like it was afraid to come inside.
"I've discovered shy light," he remarked, jutting his hand in and out a few times. He stuck his head out and looked down.

The Spearhead Crew
The second commission from David Baron (davidbaronart.tumblr.com/) , this time showing, in no particular order, Wrunx the Logistician (the robot), Mr. Stubbs (the Hobgoblin), Hooks (the vulture), and The Overseer (cuddly bundle of evil). Believe it or not, The Overseer is the boss who keeps the rest of the crew in line through raw mystic power and intimidation. Once again, these are characters from Between, available wherever ebooks are sold, plus Wattpad.

The Shard Fetchers
This is an old commission from David Baron (davidbaronart.tumblr.com/), featuring (Left-to-Right) Beatrice "Trixie" Zalthea, Philo Middleton, Left-Rill, Rill, and Right-Rill. They're characters from my oft overlooked story "Between"

Between Cover by Nick Deligaris
This is the cover for my upcoming novel release of "Between." The art, as always, is by :icondeligaris:

I hope to releasing this story on November 10th, and an unedited version of the first section of the book is available on Wattpad.

A few hours ago I was thinking about books and artwork, on a lark I wrote a quick Facebook post asking if anyone had any requests or ideas for book art. I got a few, most of which I hadn't considered. A lot of them are ideas best left to people who have read the books, so I had an idea. Let's call it a "Fan Art Bounty."

Below you'll find a list of suggestions people made. If you're an artist and you'd like to give one of these ideas a try, comment or message me and we can discuss a commission. If you know an artist who specializes in this sort of thing, let me know and I'll reach out. And you'd just like to draw one of these things and send them to me, well that's fine, too.

Suggestions:

  • One of the many weapons from the Book of Deacon series: Myranda's staff, any of Desmeres' many creations.
  • Ivy's many emotional states, which include happiness, fear, anger, hate, and duty.
  • The D'Karon generals: Bagu, Demont, Teht, Epidime
  • Trigorah
  • Myranda and Deacon fighting Epidime
  • Baby Lain

Now, some fans, or some artists, may look at that list and feel that some of them feel familiar. Well, that's because a few of those things have indeed made an appearance in the fan art area, so to give you an idea of what people had in mind, here's a little gallery of past examples of some of these, to inspire and entertain.

A blessed birthday, Joseph.
I see I have missed a couple of your releases.  Must remedy that.

Thanks! It was an excellent birthday. The blizzard went easy on us, I had some fancy cake and a meatball sub (not in that order), and I played some games. Good times all around.
