Relaunch is go

Dudes!

(Gender neutral, singular or plural)


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.

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.
