I just signed a contract with Fireborn Publishing for a new release, a scifi short story entitled The Last Amanuensis. Normally, Fireborn uses stock covers for short fiction, but I convinced them to let me create my own cover. I thought you might like to see the result.
Not as good as Willsin's covers, but I'm getting better at this...!
Here's the blurb. The book will release in May.
Poetry is like blood – you can’t hold it back.
The Emperor has decreed that Reason will rule in his lands. Art and literature are banned in favor of military technology. The fearsome Preceptors prowl the capitol, arresting anyone who dares, even secretly, to engage in forbidden activities.
A former teacher and frustrated writer, Adele is grateful for her job as secretary to the enigmatic Professor. During the day, she transcribes his learned treatises on a vast range of topics. Then he calls her to his room one night, to give her a more difficult and intimate assignment, one that risks both their lives.
