Re-branding... an exercise in futility or fun...

I've taken a look at my backlist lately and decided some of my books needed facelifts.  In most cases, this meant seeking outside help in the form of a copy editor or cover artist.  In other cases, I learned to do some fun things with Gimp (a free photoshop program).

While I can't highlight the copy editing updates the way I can with covers, I can let you know that Dark Reckoning, Georgia Reign, Crystal Illusions and Saving Face have already been cleaned up.  All my more recent books (The Night Hawk series and The Death Chronicles) have already undergone a thorough copy edit, so those should be clear of most grammatical issues.  I have come to the conclusion that I am sorely comma deficient, but the wonderful ladies that I procure, are a wiz at cleaning up my prose.

The latest re-branding is the complete overhaul of Dome Warriors, including new title, new cover and new blurb - which I will be revealing soon, but in the meantime, I'll share a couple significant cover updates that I've rolled out in the last couple weeks...

So, what do you think?

Until next time,
