New Lettering On Light Dawning

The light of a new day has dawned for this book cover!

I spent the last few weeks mulling a re-lettering on Light Dawning, looking for a way to make the title pop a bit more.

After going through several of my own iterations and collaborating with a few of the fine folks at the Grimdark Fiction Readers & Writers Facebook group, I finally ended up hiring Rob Matheny from the Grim Tidings podcast for the new edition.

Today I’m proud to unveil the new version, which can be seen below. If you like what he did with my cover, be sure to hit up Rob for your own books! The new cover is now online for the Kindle edition, with the paperback to follow shortly.

In this latest guest post, we go in-depth into various aspects of the “Light Dawning” universe – explaining the ins and outs of the magic system, religion, government, and the many unnatural and horrifying creatures to be found!

Fantasy is missing the horror element

How often do eagles really swoop down and save you from certain doom?

mighty

The epic MightyThorJrs blog was kind enough to host me for a new guest post, this time discussing the curious lack of horror in the fantasy genre. Some excerpts follow:

As much as I will always treasure those books and how they shaped my youth, that aspect of the genre doesn’t ring true for me. I can’t think of a single time that eagles ever swooped down – literally or metaphorically – to save me from certain doom. The local cleric has never brought a loved one back from the dead. Standing up for the oppressed very rarely results in recognition or reward, and can be actively dangerous.

When I was writing Light Dawning, I didn’t want to just surgically remove all those aspects of fantasy that felt like wish fulfillment or vicarious living through written characters – I wanted to viciously hack them apart, violently ripping them out with tooth and claw before throwing them into the uncaring fire. My take on the genre consists of forcibly colliding fantasy with an unpleasant dose of grim reality, then injecting some looming cosmic horror elements to take it all one step further into the abyss.
