The February Sale Continues With New Premade Covers

Some new pieces from this week. Commission work has kept me on my toes but at the end of the day I try to unwind by… doing more art? I guess I like making covers or something.

ALSO… THE SALE.

All premade covers are usually $100 via paypal, $25 extra to expand them to print jackets. Custom covers start at $150. Always feel free to email us at roosterrepublicpress@gmail.com and for more info and covers navigate to our Design Services tab or click HERE.

But for Valentines Day last week, we wanted to show our appreciation and launched a sale for all the premade covers. So, until the end of February, all premades are $65 for the cover (this includes any text/fonts as well).  Enjoy!

I’m going to try something a little different this week. I want to have a little more fun with these premade covers other than just showing them off. Sometimes an image alone can spur a writer into a story concept, and when I get feedback like that on social media, it always brightens up my day a bit. Makes ya feel like you’re doing something right, you know? So in that spirit, I’m going to riff on each piece briefly, I guess in a way to remember what it was like when I was still actively writing fiction. Maybe it’s a way to brush up on those skills, a little practice  alongside the art.

I tend to cycle through skills –  going from writing, music, and art to prevent creative blocks and to keep things fresh and exciting. I will admit, though, art was my first passion, and I find myself being drawn to it with more frequency.  I feel at home there (especially when I’m playing with horror). There’s also a great challenge, and a difference, in creating art for art’s sake and creating a book cover. I’ll have to save that for another time.

I think anyone who has been publishing, either by traditional means or by the self-publishing route, can agree that writing is time consuming and difficult work. For me, making covers is a less labor intensive way to play with story elements in a much more speedy manner (plus it keeps me connected to a thriving community of storytellers, which is a great form of entertainment in itself). It scratches that writer brain itch. You know the one.

The voice that goes, “Ah, this would be a good prompt for a story.”

“I saw her in The Between. It was a glimpse, the curtains withdrawn revealed a lover. I knew her, but how? From where? We were made of smoke, nebulae, the ink of space outlining the stars that filled our form. We were dead. We were lovely. I did not want to come back.”

The visuals were already kicking in. He looked over the writhing mass of bodies and grinned. A wave of euphoria. The tickle of electricity. Fractals pulsated across his vision. He spotted a woman in the crowd. Her eyes reflected like an animal’s, orbs of light buried in the silhouette of a face. She appeared to be staring right at him, dancing for him. Her movements were set aside, as if the crowd parted for her. They moved at a different speed, but she –  she was fluid. Highlighted.

Anne tugged at his shirt, pulling him from the trance.

“This shit is fire,” he yelled over the music. “What did you call it?”

She squinted. “What did you take?”

Steven laughed and shrugged, throwing his hands up. “I don’t know, whatever you gave me!”

“I haven’t even got it yet! What are you talking about?”

“What?”

“It’s real. I’ve seen it. I’ve seen the miracles.”
“C’mon. We’re not twelve anymore. I’m not falling for it.”
“She’s right. I’ve seen it, too.”
“Seen what?”
Mary’s friends paused. She expected to see that glint in their eyes, that bit of glee when they were up to something. She’d been gone five years, and nothing had changed. Nothing at all. Small towns were like that.

Except, that glance wasn’t mischief. It was fear.

“The road between worlds is littered with bones. A place dreams can die if they linger too long.”


Three friends disappear walking home from a county fair without a trace. Stranger still, three separate voice mails are left on each of their parent’s phones. Voice messages that are all sent at the exact same time, saying the exact same message.

“We have something to show you.”

But the sound that comes next…

 


This summer
One man
Will kick
his house’s ass

I’ve got nothing on this one. I have failed. The torch is now yours to carryI misspelled “y’all” on the cover. All is lost but I’m for hire.

This piece actually began as a picture of the Nicholas Day, author of Grind Your Bones To Dust and co-owner of Rooster Republic, but don’t tell anyone.

See ya next week!

Commission Complete: Horror for Raices and Nightscape Press


Another recent commission for Nightscape Press and their charity line, this time to help raise money for RAICES. I love working with this press, and this particular venture has an amazing line up of authors working for a worthy cause. Nightscape is a huge blessing to the indie horror circles and you should definitely check them out.

Commission Complete: Michael Cisco and Nightscape Press


I’ve been honored to work with Nightscape Press for the last year or so across various projects, but most importantly their charity books. I was thrilled when they asked me to tackle Michael Cisco’s latest release. He’s a great writer for one, and for two, part of the profit goes to charity. Win-win. Here’s where you can find them –

Commission Complete: Sam Richard and Nihilism Revised


I’ve been able to work with Sam a bit before (he’s a great dude), but last week he approached me with an idea for his new book through NihilismRevised that I could not ignore.  There was beauty in the simplicity of it, and being a fan of minimalism, I jumped at it. It was also my first chance to work with S.C. Burke, the head of NihilismRevised, and it wasn’t only smooth, but a joy to put the cover and jacket together. I don’t think the full image of the jacket has been released yet, but if you love horror and transgressive fiction, it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on these guys.
