I am a visual creature. If I were able to transfer the scenes in my brain directly to video, life would be easy, and my productivity would be amazing. As it is, I have to translate the images to words, which for me is an incredibly slow process.
What helps is to have an image in front of me as I work. For that reason–and because art is addictive–I create covers for books I have yet to write. They keep me focused, they inspire me to move forward, and they give me pleasure.
Here are a few, mostly representing the first books in a series. Included are science fiction, fantasy, and science fantasy. If any of them make you want to read the book, let me know.
