The Big Reveal

The Big Reveal

Hello my friends! Welcome to my blog! I love visitors. The illustration above is my concept brought to life by the very talented artist George Miltiadis. If you’d like to know more about the artist, and see more of his work click on this link : http://www.cgmythology.com or contact him at cgaddict@live.com

The inspiration for the concept of the illustration came from one of my favorite quotes.

“The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin

I’m going to use this masterpiece as the new cover image for my Author Fan Page, but I wanted to reveal it here first. Tomorrow (Monday 07/15/13) marks three weeks since I started my author page, and already I have over a thousand “Likes”. I am really grateful to all my fans and followers.

As many of you know, my first novel “The Basement” will be released August 20th, 2013.

The next two illustrations are George Miltiadis’ rendition of my character Natasha from my book “The Basement“.

Natasha ventured out of her home in the middle of the night to rescue her friend Robbie from the basement.

What monsters lurk in your world? What will you do when you can no longer see?

What monsters lurk in your world?
What will you do when you can no longer see?

The Basement is a tale of angst, teamwork and solutions, of treasure hunts and adventure, and of facing your fears.  It is a focus on the small- but everything- world of one group of pre-teens and the very real and wondrous world they face.

I invite you to visit The Basement Fan Page and my new Author Page.
