The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

The Red Rook cover almost done

Picture

Here’s another sneak peak in The Red Rook, the sequel to Dispensing Justice and the second in the Nova Genesis World series, as it draws closer to publication. This time, I’m putting the cover on display. With The Red Rook I’m introducing a new style of cover for the Nova Genesis series (see novagenesis:Dispensing Justice cover design for the in progress work on Dispensing Justice). If you are interested in seeing the sequence of designs that lead to this one, check out novagenesis:The Red Rook cover design.

Feedback and comments on the The Red Rook‘s cover are appreciated.

On showing not telling and a look at character based teasers

E. E. Knight has a couple of blog entries of note.  The first is on showing not telling, or, in other words, how to avoid exposition dumps.  This got me thinking about the opening scenes for the two short stories that I am working on and how I had ended up committing the expositional sin in both.  Having set about remedying these transgressions I find that, strangely enough, I am having fun replacing a paragraph of exposition with a page or two of character interaction.  Who knew?   Well, I did.  I had just forgotten.

The second blog entry of interest was about an old  Jackie Collins’ paperback and its character based back cover copy and front cover teaser.  It struck me that it might be a good exercise to try and do this for (some of) the characters in Tactics.  Fifteen minutes later I had a fun little set of six two sentence (more or less) character descriptions.  They’re a bit silly so I’m not sure how comfortable I feel in sharing it.  Perhaps later (if and when) I take a few more steps down the road to getting published.
