Cover reveal — Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker

They Both Need a Christmas Miracle For seven or eight years, I’ve spent Decembers in the orchestra pit for performances of that great Christmas tradition, The Nutcracker.

A cover reveal #mfrwhooks

What is the #1 hook that can loosen readers’ purse strings? The cover. So without further ado, here is the cover for Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September SFR release. Before you go, let’s talk cover reveals. I’ve frankly never found paying for a cover reveal to be worthwhile. Have you? How do you handle […]

A cover, a blurb and a constellation #mfrwhooks

Happy belated New Year! I’m back after a hiatus for the holidays. All four of my children came home to Arizona for Christmas, even the ones in Toronto and Amsterdam. Great times!

I enjoy stories with action and the stirrings of love and, especially, with characters who have psychological depth. Before you scream in horror at the thought of a boring literary character study, my main […]

Cover reveal — Alien Contact for Idiots

Shakespeare says: “What’s in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet” To which I respond: “What’s in a cover? that which we call a book Inside any other cover would read as sweet” Shakespeare was was wrong, of course–or rather, he deliberately misleads us here, because the […]

Triumphant Cover Reveal

And now, alas, for some shameless commercialism. Amazing how different it feels, though, when it’s my commercialism … noble, almost, or at least artistic and marvellously important, as opposed to crass. Without further apology, here’s the cover reveal for The Triumph of Tompa Lee, my upcoming science fiction adventure with dollops of romance. Leave a […]
