In a place where even the gods fear to tread, how can naught but a tragedy be the outcome?
Where do the picture for the cover art come from?
All the covers for the series' come from a collaboration with the author and with cover artist, Carol Phillips. The author gives Carol several proposed ideas, usually scenes from the book, and she picks the one she wants to do. The cover for The Hazards came for a photograph I took of my wife, which Carol adapted. I've attached the picture.
Do you have a day time job?
I do have a day job--a technical one. It's pretty unexciting.
Don't have to answer but do you come out even or are you able to make a profit writing?
Writing is tough. Very few authors are able to write full-time. It takes a ton of hard work and you can't really expect to see a return on your efforts for years.
Have you ever had people read the book before it's published and then enclosed their comments on the jacket?
All of the books are Beta-read prior to publication. I usually don't include reviews or positive testimonials on the covers. It's just not something I've ever done.
How hard is it to come up for the name of the book?
Naming the books is usually pretty simple--they sort of name themselves. The only book I've ever had trouble naming is Book 3: The Dead Held Hands. It took forever to figure out a name for that one, I'm not certain way this is, though.
