Posts here have been sporadic as I’ve been pouring all writing time into another edit of Lucidity Effect, having gotten it back from my first round of beta-readers with some useful critique. Mainly, I’m rewriting the big showdown chapter for the umpteenth time (probably not the last time, either) which is great because I’m finally [...]
Making a book cover can get pretty hairy. But its also super creative and fun, even as it is nerve wracking. I love love love a beautiful book, you know, those gorgeous books that by sheer power of their intriguing design make you want to pick them up and fondle them. Maybe even read them. [...]
The current iteration of the cover…
You might notice that the title has changed. If you feel like commenting, I’d love to know what you think this book is about—I don’t mean in-depth analysis, just that sense you get when glancing at a cover, “oh, that’s historical romance,” or, “that’s kick-butt [...]
I just got the last editor letter back on the angel book and am deep in edits. The plan is to finish this, as in done done DONE, by the end of May and send it off to the copy editor by June 1. I’m so excited for this book to finally see the light [...]
I’ve had several people ask me about the cool artwork for the Toby Streams the Universe cover, so I thought I’d do a post on it. The image (not the text) was made for me by Ida Larsen, a digital artist living in Denmark. She also did the art for Conjuring Raine. I [...]
I’m pretty sure this is the one, the final version. Final for now. The really, real, extremely final, for right now, version, ha.
I tried to make it a little less busy, but still get the quirky upside-down thing going, because this is a quirky, upside-down kind of book. And New [...]
When I started looking for a cover artist for Conjuring Raine, I searched all over, looking for covers I liked to find artists, surfing the deviant art site, asking other writers…it was a long process. Fees went anywhere from free to $1000 for a cover, wait times anywhere from twenty-four hours, to six [...]
I am talking to a couple of artists about creating a cover image for Conjuring Raine. This is really fun, and also ridiculously stressful. But anyway, the current idea has both Raine and Joshua on it, and thus, I’m having to explain something of what they should look like, beyond the deliberately vague physical descriptions [...]

- "Dusi's Wings" April, 2003. . . . "One thing fantasy can do for us is to give shape to the mysterious in the world; another is to make emotional yearning concrete. The early sections of "Dusi's Wings" do just that...there was a strong grasping towards the spiritual in fantasy here that was very promising, and I look forward to reading more by Lassiter." --review, Tangent Online.
