Kode Concept Barcode Eyes That Kill Books 

Cover Artists of The Century

I just received another update from one of my cover artists. It seems that Kode’s design is near completion. We still have to find the proper colors and a unique, new design for Shiva, but we’re getting there. My first reaction to her initial design of Kode was, “That’s not him.” After 30 seconds of intensive staring, this is the guy I saw. Barcode: Eyes That Kill is expected to release by the end of spring.

First Draft of Editing Complete

I finally finished the first draft of editing in Barcode: Eyes That Kill. It was a challenge. I began with 105,000 words (about 210 MS Word pages). That’s a pretty hefty book. Currently, only Cavern of Youth is comparable in length. However, after editing, I added 20,000 words (50 pages). This is the longest novel yet. The editing was rough! Just being honest. Every time I write, I always try to improve. I consider previous criticisms and try to make adjustments. Not to mention, I do my best to enhance…

Barcode: Eyes That Kill Sketches

While I’m working hard at editing Barcode: Eyes That Kill, my cover artists are giving me preliminary sketches for the cover designs. We’re fighting to put out a very strong product by May or June. We’ll also have Barcode: Demon of Gods (the final book) ready not long after. For now, I want to show readers the early sketches of Kode and a new “love” interest known as Bailey. These are early, rough sketches, so don’t get too attached. And don’t judge them before seeing the color. Things really step…

The cover art for my novel isn’t in just yet, but if you’d like to see how it’s coming along, here’s a little preview. My cover artists never cease to amaze me. We’ve had the most interesting 4 months ever. None of us have gotten the work done that we said we would in the predicted time, which is great because it means we all run on the same frequency.

My Next Big Thing

A good friend, Kiersi, suggested this blog hop. I’ll participate because I haven’t been blogging much lately. Finally, some inspiration! 1. What is the working title of your book? Currently, my next novel is Barcode: New War Order. 2. Where did the idea come from for the book? My wife and I had this discussion yesterday. I think New War Order came from me seeing an old school wrestling match with New World Order, and I thought, “Let’s make a novel about that.” NOT WRESTLING. I mean the concept of…

Guest Post – The Independent Author’s Guide to Self-Promotion

Advertising is hard. I don’t know how the guys on Mad Men do it. I had to jump right in it with both feet because I had little choice. I’m an indie author. I exemplify “independent” in every possible way. I have no agent, no publicist, no major publshing house behind me doing the heavy lifting so I can focus on nothing but writing. All I have are some close friends and family reading each chapter as I finish them. They call me on mistakes and try to poke holes…
