New novel release: The Beginning and the End

My new novel is available on Kindle, and will be available in print by the end of July 2014. Here is the link to the digital format so long:

About 'The Beginning and the End':

Imagine waking up today to discover your life is only the most recent projection within an endless existence. Imagine that with this new insight comes breathtaking memories - jarring images, smells and sounds from a life you remember you had once lived. That everything you thought to be true, about who you were and what life was, is suddenly shattered into a million pieces. At the heart of this awakening, imagine, you remember the one and only true love you have ever had and a promise you once made to love her across time and space. 

This is Joseph Kauffman’s predicament. Joseph Kauffman remembers. The last five years of his life have been consumed by an obsession to track down the woman in his resurfaced memories. To find her and fulfill his promise to her. His sense of reality is completely shattered; but even though he has come to change his views on existence, he has no idea that what lies waiting for him in the next twenty-four hours will take him further than ever before into the borderlands of his understanding of reality. What Joseph is about to discover will force him to leave the city and go out into the desert searching for the only chance he has to stay with the one he once loved.

‘Crossing Eternity’ illustrations

Yea! Settled on a style for the ‘Crossing Eternity’ interior, monochromatic illustrations. After mulling things over I decided to go in a more iconic direction, thinking that these kind of illustrations allow readers to more readily identify with the characters within the story. This is the first of the batch :)

Building a visual language for later illustrations, this is a concept sketch of an important place within the story. The Celestial Palace in Aijit. The screen capture is about 12 minutes in length, watch it to the end to get the full effect of the sketch. :)

Work progress on new novel

We're in the final stages of checking the manuscript for the new novel. I began the illustrations phase of the book a few weeks back and and churning through my initial roughs and thumbs for the book. Here are two character concepts for the protagonists in the book: Piggie and Calluna. Like my page on Facebook, the Calluna sketch is much clearer on my page.
