A Change of a Love Story For a Nation

A LOVE STORY FOR A NATION┬áis one of the favorite stories I’ve ever written. It, like a lot of my writings, started as a short play called “Almighty Might.” An audience member, who came to see a production of it, was greatly moved by its story – so much so that this audience member, who also happened to be an artist, drew an amazing picture of its story. I was blown away! I had the chance to meet the artist later that year. His name is Woon Bin Chang. A terrific guy. He was gracious enough to allow me to use his picture as the the book cover for my novel. I was thrilled.

But the picture posed some problems for the cover, and when the novel was published, I decided on another design by another talented graphic artist. I loved it, and I was very happy with the cover.

But three years on, I stumbled back upon this artwork and wondered if I could redesign it in order to give the novel a make-over and to show off this great piece of art which represented the story so very well.

And so I did.

I’ve decided to change the cover art for the novel. I’m very happy with it and I hope it inspires others to check out this moving story.

As always, your thoughts are welcome.

A New Book Cover & New Promotions!

Well, I did it. I decided to change a book cover. Here’s my new book cover for my novel “The Recluse Storyteller.”

RecluseNewFINAL2

I decided to keep the recluse’s figure as she stares off into the distance, but this time looking at the tree on the hill, which reminded me a lot of the tree from the story. The recluse tells the story of twins in the 19th century, who climb the hill from their house and look out over the valley in hopes of spotting their father coming home. It’s one of the four poignant stories she tells, but this one is mixed with a little mysticism and magic when the father appears to one of the girls under the tree.

The e-book version of the novel has recently expanded its reach beyond Amazon and is available at Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple, and many other fine vendors.
