Oh, Angela Waters, how I think thee rad. You listen to my ideas for cover art and then make them fifty-seven times better than they were in my head. I’d call it collaboration, but that’s self-aggrandizing. It’s more like cover art clairvoyance. Angela sees and improves. She understands and—aw, enough of that. Here’s the new […]Read more "WOLF LAND Cover Reveal!"
Hey, friends. Busy times, busy times. I missed the Word Horror Convention a few days ago, which pained me…until I realized all I would have missed here at home. One of these days I’ll make it to WHC, but it wasn’t in the cards this year.
