It saddens me to say that my friend Alisha Rai was once viciously attacked by London/UK pigeons for no apparent reason. Thus it became my solemn duty to draw a picture of Alisha battling an Evil Pigeon to memorialize the occasion for all time.
This is a warning to all aggressive pigeons. Back off, you bastards!
Also, I thought I’d share the “art” with which I attempted to bribe the artist Kanaxa into doing my cover art. She thought my skills were so lacking that she agreed to do my cover out of sheer pity.
Thanks, Kanaxa! More of her cover art can be found here: http://kanaxa.com/Home.html
Oh, yeah. And I wrote a book that may or may not be funny/amusing/completely-off-the-rails-stupid. It releases on February 15th. It can be found here: http://store.samhainpublishing.com/the-zero-dog-war-p-6261.html
Here’s the blurb for The Zero Dog War
The first bullet is always free. After that, you gotta pay.
Zero Dog Missions, Book 1
After accidentally blowing up both a client facility and a cushy city contract in the same day, pyromancer and mercenary captain Andrea Walker is scrambling to save her Zero Dogs. A team including (but not limited to) a sexually repressed succubus, a werewolf with a thing for health food, a sarcastic tank driver/aspiring romance novelist, a three-hundred-pound calico cat, and a massive demon who really loves to blow stuff up.
With the bankruptcy vultures circling, Homeland Security throws her a high-paying, short-term contract even the Zero Dogs can’t screw up: destroy a capitalist necromancer bent on dominating the gelatin industry with an all-zombie workforce. The catch? She has to take on Special Forces Captain Jake Sanders, a man who threatens both the existence of the team and Andrea’s deliberate avoidance of romantic entanglements.
As Andrea strains to hold her dysfunctional team together long enough to derail the corporate zombie apocalypse, the prospect of getting her heart run over by a tank tread is the least of her worries. The government never does anything without an ulterior motive. Jake could be the key to success…or just another bad day at the office for the Zeroes.
