    My Cover Design Work

    You may have seen my covers for KILL WHITEY and SHADES that Dan Hocker posted recently on the Brian Keene thread. Here's a blog post which features a few more of them for anyone interested.

    Most unusual for a writer to also do his covers. All of them are pretty solid, especially like "Their Last Dying Acts" something about it really strikes me.

      Wow Kealan, I never realized there was so much I hadn't read of yours. I'm amazed. Are you going to edit any anthologies this year?

        Thanks! That's one of my favorites too. I got into doing these once the digital revolution hit, quite frankly because the cost of hiring someone to do the editing, formatting, layout, and cover design was prohibitive. Plus, I like a challenge, and if I can learn to do something myself, that will always be preferable to me than outsourcing. Gives me a measure of control I wouldn't otherwise have.

          No plans to edit any anthologies this year, Randy. I simply don't have the time, and although I'd always love to do another one, they're just not an easy sell anymore (not that they ever really were.)

                They're all quite good, but I really dig Night Show and Kill Whitey, very sexy. Their Last Dying Act especially stands out too.

                      I've noticed there are never any KPB titles at Half price Books whenever I go. I guess the books are just so awesome that people can't bring themselves to give them up!

                              Awesome! Why isn't your name on the CD website for the striking The Influence cover?
