Making of Monday [v.18]

May 09, 2016

Due to high industry demand, I'm finally jumping on the "soup cover" bandwagon. #whowouldathunkit

When working with stock photos of people, it's especially important to whip your selected images into highly unique cover art—the further you deviate from the original aesthetic/cropping of the photo, the less likely you are to see another cover that looks nearly identical to yours! (See an especially extreme past transformation here.)

Coming soon to my website and Etsy. If you'd like first dibs on this cover, please send me an email!

Release Day—STRINGS By David Estes

February 15, 2016

I had the opportunity to beta-read STRINGS last year—a beautifully written/futuristic re-imagining of Pinocchio—and highly recommend adding it to your to-read list!

"A wonderful retelling of the Pinocchio story…I simply couldn’t put this book down."  Rysa Walker, bestselling author of TIMEBOUND

• eBook • Paperback • Audiobook
Sometimes the strings that tie us down are the same strings that set us free. Sixteen-year-old Pia has always lived in a mysterious facility where mechanical strings control her existence. She plays apprentice to her father, Gio, in performing nanotech designs for the Company, and she soon suspects there are diabolical human forces behind the manufactured reality of her world. Though her childhood memories and the origins of the strings remain strangely elusive, she begins to find solace with the introduction of two unlikely friends: daring, irrational Sofia, and calm, tender Marco. As the truths of the past and present unravel together, Pia must find a way to free herself from her strings and escape the facility before facing the wrath of the unstable head of security, Mr. Davis. But to gain her freedom, she must navigate the dangers posed by Davis and by her suspicious new friends to find the real identity of the puppeteer. If Pia can succeed in revealing the secrets of the Company, she may very well find the independence she so desperately seeks. But in her controlled world nothing is as it seems, and the closer she gets to the truth, the graver the consequences.
