The Launch Week Celebration Continues!
It’s been an exciting week for me as Wild Space: Transformations launched on Tuesday and has been selling like crazy.
But it’s not just the sales that have been so exhilarating for me. It’s also the new covers that grace the front of all six books in the first series of Wild Space. I spoke about the new ship design in a BLOG POST earlier this week and now I would like to officially announce the new looks of all six titles.
When I first released Wild Space, I purchased an image of a space ship to be used on the covers. However, I was very limited on what I could do with that image. I wanted to have explosive scenes on the covers. I wanted to be able to display a ship with the ability to be as iconic as the Enterprise or Serenity or the Millennium Falcon, but the ship I was using, just didn’t have that potential.
And then I discovered SolCommand, a website made up of hard working designers who give away 3D images of ships to game designers or artists. It was here that I found the designs for not just the Independence, but my Imperial fleet and many other ships that will one day grace the covers of my books.
Granted, I still had to paint the 3D images, but it was well worth the time to learn how to do it. For the first time ever, I have covers on my books that tell a story, and that is what a good cover should do.
The following images are the before and afters of all six books. Take a look at the huge difference:
Wild Space: Onslaught
Wild Space: Reclamation
Wild Space: Sedition
Wild Space: Ghosts
Wild Space: Heist
Wild Space: Transformations
As you can see, the covers have immensely improved! I love the new look and I love the idea that at long last, the Imperial Battle Ships can appear on the cover with the Independence – giving readers a chance to see how stacked against them, the odds of survival really are.
I have more ships cooking up on the burner and they will grace the covers of Wild Space Series 2 and beyond. Watch my blog post as I’ll be sharing those images in the days to come.
