'Terra Rising: By Right of Arms' ~ cover art & design


The above logo, created for the science fiction book series, TERRA RISING, I know, wasn't what JT had in his head. Luckily, he loved my interpretation of his concept (subdued silver, like a military badge, a starburst with an infinity symbol on top, with a sword thrust up through the starburst). 

I think he had more of a military patch in mind. 
Thinking that didn't follow the theme well enough, I extrapolated, lol.

I studied several Marine badges from different countries and somehow this popped into my head ... looking  NOTHING like the badges I was looking at, lol. 
I've never claimed to know how my brain works, so don't ask.

The Confederated Nations of Terra receive a shocking distress signal from out of system. Captain Aaron Richardson and the crew of the TNS Intrepid are horrified at what they find after responding to the distress call from Earth’s closest celestial neighbor, Alpha Centauri. What they discover launches them into a new universe of political and military intrigue. Using ancient legends, they forge Earth’s position in the Principean Empire and discover the secrets of Earth’s distant past. Thwarted at every turn by pirates, they must fight a race of aliens who are intent on killing all humans and destroying the Earth. Unable to do it alone, they must seek assistance of new allies to save their home.


BRoA is actually a second edition. If you happen to have the first version, make sure to get this version, too. If I understand it right, editing and revisions were made to the text, making it a cleaner, more enjoyable reading experience. Besides ... Who wouldn't want the new cover ;P

I'll be sure to keep y'all updated as to when the 'revailing' will be :D Keep an eye on the BRoA page on my website for links and such. By Right of Arms







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