It's time for one of my very rare journal updates. Today my latest novel, The Rise of the Red Shadow, releases in all major ebookstores. I've had a lot of great artwork done for it already, and I'm anxious to see what fans will come up with in the days and weeks ahead. Below are some official and unofficial pieces of art for the story:


You fan find The Rise of the Red Shadow official announcement on my webpage, and if you're a fan of fantasy in general or The Book of Deacon in particular, I hope you'll give it a try.
Hello, DA watchers.
I don't usually do journal entries here, but since what I've got to say right now is almost entirely art related, this seemed like a good place to mention it as well. In response to a recent comment on the Facebook fan page, I've been looking into the feasibility of having a poster for the Book of Deacon series made. For things of this nature, I typically favor Print On Demand. It is more expensive, but since I don't really have room for inventory or time for shipping, it is the best match for me. The issue is that for a full size, full color poster on good paper, POD costs dozens of times what an offset printing costs. So I'm going to try to do this the way the big shots do. But if I'm going to give it a try, I want to make sure I'm making something the fans want. Thus, there is going to be a series of polls to narrow down what poster should be made, and how it should look.

So far the decision has been made (not surprisingly) that commissioned artwork should be on the poster. The current poll is WHICH art should be there. My suggestions are The Book of Deacon (Book 1) cover, the Jade cover, or the recent Myn sketch. The poll over on the fan page has the option to add and vote for your own favorites, too. Rather than forcing you to go over and vote there, though, feel free to reply with a comment containing your opinion.
Thanks for reading.
