After some collaborative back-and-forth with Severed Press, which included me sending three terrible pencil drawings that are too embarrassing to share, we have it. The cover.
Check it out:
I love it. The lighting, the design of the spacesuit, the otherness of the creature, and its explosive violence. I hope it gets your imagination going. More importantly, I hope it makes you want to read the book. It's a pretty good representation of what the novel has in store. I'm not certain who the artist is, but I'll ask.
Severed Press has informed me that the book may be released on Amazon as early as next week. I don't yet have an exact date, and I may not have one right up until the release, but if I learn anything, I'll keep you posted. I'm looking into holding a small release party at an indie bookstore near me, but I don't know if this is possible given the constraints. Severed Press is based out of Tasmania, and most of their sales are in eBook format or print-on-demand, so we'll see. I'd like to do something semi-official to kick things off. Check back for details.
