“Great Gams” to be Released on Kindle Soon!

I’m happy to announce the release of another short story from yours truly on Amazon Kindle!

My short story Great Gams will be going live on Amazon shortly, and I’m thrilled to show you the cover for it.

Here’s one version:

And, as is my habit, here’s the other one I made:

As with the other releases, this one will be going into Amazon’s Kindle Select program so I can offer it for free for the first five days of its release. After that, the story will go to 99¢ until the Kindle Select period expires.

Get yours while it’s free – watch here for the official release and “go-live” date!

Again, the book should be live in 12-24 hours from now, so be sure to get your copy as soon as it’s free! And tell everyone you know!

Thanks, all!

New “Scales of Justice” Cover reveal!

It depends on how it looks in the KDP publishing preview, of course, but I’ve been working on a new cover for Scales of Justice, my one and only full-length published novel. I like the one I have, but thought maybe, just maybe, it could use some “oomph,” so I worked up a new one.

So sound off, one and all, and tell me what you think of the NEW cover for Scales of Justice:

Scales of Justice 4

Now, I’m not wild about the author name line right now. I don’t mind if people can’t read the “A Novel By” line, but I definitely need the name to stand out. And I’d like to use either contrasting colors or something from the background, but I just couldn’t seem to hit on anything good. I finally settled on a bright cyan, but I’d like something better, so that might change.

The other covers, which didn’t make the cut, were all more yellow-orange and didn’t play well on screen when uploaded to Amazon’s KDP. I feel fairly confident this one will work well. And I love the imagery, and the scales. Of course, friend and fellow author (and thereby cover designer) Bryce Beattie made me a cover for this one too, and I might just use his instead.

Well, which one do you guys like better? Which do you think will read cleaner and be more eye-catching on the screen?

Sound off! I want to hear from you.
