A thousand years from today, nearly all of humanity is jacked-In.
We sleep, connected to machines, dreaming our lives away.
For most, it’s the perfect life.
But for the few who never jacked-In, it’s exile.
Abandoned, persecuted, and betrayed, the Outs plot their vengeance across the centuries.
And when they open the Door, two sides will meet.
But only one will survive…
A sci-fi novella

A few weeks ago, I teased the backstory for my upcoming sci-fi novella, A Door Never Dreamed Of.
As for the cover art, it’s been done for more than a month.
In August I reached out to Tessera Guild goddess, Amanda Makepeace. It felt like an obvious choice. I mean…she’d already done amazing work on the covers for The Sleepers, Hollow Empire, Nether Kingdom, and Old Man of Tessera. I never had any doubt about who I was gonna ask.
For almost a year, I’d been itching to find a way to get Amanda’s painting, The Jupiter Event, onto one of my book covers. I just happened to be wandering her website when I stumbled across it. After seeing it, I knew it would be a perfect fit. After all, Jupiter is half the setting of the book (sort of.)
The scary, spidery, black-as-death image she’d created was perfect for the Achilles space station, home of the exiled Outs.
A Door Never Dreamed Of
Update: this title is NOW AVAILABLE!
If you need cover work or if you just want cool art for your house, I suggest Lady Makepeace. You can’t go wrong.
