(Latest SURFACE IN HEAVEN cover) After reading my next novel called SURFACE IN HEAVEN that I will publish on Amazon as an e-Book, I had to redesign the cover I made two weeks ago. I wrote the book a few years back and had forgotten about the sexual subplot. It’s sci-fi and no one needs to tell me that sex and sci-fi don’t mix. Though […]

I’m working on the cover for one of my books. This one is called SURFACE IN HEAVEN. The genre that it falls in is somewhere between space opera and speculative fiction.

(I found this pic and wish I could credit the artist. It’s real cool.) The last few days I’ve been a little crazy. I’m sorry, and I mean it. I just hope you don’t think I’m an abject cretin. Since all we share are words, maybe if I post a couple of poems you might think better […]
