Relaunch is go

Dudes!

I've been tinkering a lot over the summer and one of my many projects has been to do a bit of a refresh to my sci-fi novel, SHIFTER. The launch last August was a little rushed and I wasn't super happy with my cover art, so I've been searching for an illustrator to help bring my vision to life. I found an incredible artist named Adia Sharpe (asharpeillustration.com) on UpWork.com and we (mostly her) were able to make something pretty cool.

Left side is the back cover of the book with author photo and fake endorsements and text. The right side is the front cover with SHIFTER text across the top and a colorful illustration of a graffiti covered subway tunnel and woman with pigtails and cargo shorts facing away, field-hockey stick in hand.

While it's not exactly a scene from the book, it's Ellen facing off against an unknown threat down on the tracks of the subway with her trusty Pixie stick in hand and a wrecked Goldie motorbike at her side.

I'm responsible for the back cover layout and re-worked the description a bit. All the endorsements are totally fake-o from various fictional memes over the last few years and I swapped my professional headshot for a fun selfie from 2018 NYC International Toy Fair in front of a giant (yet miniature??) Gundam statue.


I've updated the art for both the paperback and Kindle e-book versions on Amazon, so go check 'em out! www.amazon.com/gp/product/1096898357 The only modification to the manuscript inside was to add chapter names to the table of contents. I don't think it contains any spoilers, but maybe a bit of flow to the plot.
