Last week, I posted a couple of the concept art sketches for the cover of Two’s Company. Below are two images that show the idea we decided on with color, background, and text added. I really loved the way Rob managed to put Deuce’s face into the art without taking away from the overall idea.
A little more tweaking on the background and text and here is the finished cover art. I think it really came out pretty darn nice. It captures the feel of the story really well and pulls out one of the dramatic moments in the story without trying to illustrate it word for word. I am more than thrilled with this cover!
What do you think?
The ebook is on pre-sale now until it’s release date of December 18, 2018. It is available at most ebook retailers at a discounted price. The ebook will go up to its regular price when it releases in December. Amazon doesn’t do pre-sales on its print on demand books, so no pre-sale on the paperback, sorry. You can see what the book is about and find links to pre-order it here.
And, just for the heck of it all, let’s do a little ebook giveaway, shall we? I will send you an ebook copy of Two’s Company along with either (also ebooks):
Circle Unbroken, my previously published novel
The lowdown on those books can be found by following the links on their titles. I will pick five random numbers from the entries I get, and those five lovely people will get the ebook of Two’s Company, along with whichever of the two extras listed above they choose. I will most likely use random.org to generate the numbers, but I may just ask Alexa to pick them if I feel like amusing myself.
To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below letting me know you want to enter, with an email address so I can contact you if you win. A comment will get you one entry.
If you would like to get more entries, tweet about the contest, linking to this post, and/or post about it on your Facebook page, again linking to this post. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the links to your tweet or Facebook post, and I will add one entry for each one.
The contest will run from today until November 1. Good luck!

Now, her AI has downloaded another Personality and it’s making him act strangely, her friend’s company is in danger of being shut down, and people have died at a sabotaged terraforming site. If Deuce wants to help save the company and her job, she’s going to have to figure things out fast.
