'Blood & Steel: A Love Story' ~ cover art and design

 JT Buckley and I follow each other on Twitter (@AuthorJTBuckley). I have the honor of working with him on two book covers. This is one of them ...

The plague of murders across every major city in the world has drawn Vampire Hunter, Rick Smythe, back to LA in search of his parentsmurderer. The orphaned Rick grew up in the streets, learning skills that he would need to track and destroy his nemesis. In LA he meets Saria, a social worker with a dark, dangerous secret. Nickolea, Saria’s vicious ex-lover, plans Rick’s demise to incapacitate her. When Rick is mortally wounded, Saria’s secret is revealed. To survive, they must hunt down the people they hate the most and bring them to justice. They soon find themselves on the edge of a war that could destroy the world as they know it.


As with all of my authors, JT presented me with a fun challenge ... Create a bleeding, steel rose, lit by a single spotlight. Sounds fairly simple, right?

The real trick was making red blood show up on a black floor, in a black room, with only one light source. It took a bit of fiddlin', but this is the result.

Onto wrapping up the next book :D
Until next time ...
