Today I’m happy to share with you the cover(s) for my upcoming novel, In the Shadow of Extinction: A Kaiju Epic.
Because this is a long book, I’ve decided to give the reader the option to read as they go. The plan is to release the complete omnibus as well as in three separate volumes. As such, there are four covers in total, all just a little bit different so that they feel like one text but different enough to stand out when put next to each other.
In the Shadow of Extinction is a globetrotting, 15+ year epic about kaiju rising up from below to overtake the planet. The Complete Omnibus encapsulates Parts 1, 2, and 3.
Part 1: The Ring of Fire begins with earthquakes and volcanoes erupting across the globe. Then, from out of the ash, come giant monsters that cannot be stopped by modern weaponry.
Part 2: The New World picks up fifteen years after the close of Part 1. It is now the age of monsters and humanity must fight to survive in the shadows of giants.
Part 3: Humanity’s Last Stand throws our heroes, villains, and monsters together in a battle royale that could very well decide the survival of our species.
In the Shadow of Extinction has been a labor of love for me over the years. I’ve always wanted to write a kaiju novel and put my own particular spin on the subgenre. The kaiju featured on the cover -- wonderfully drawn by the artist WAFALO -- is my main monster, the Tyrant. There are other monsters, too, but those will be kept secret for now!
I’ll be sure to let you know of any release dates, review opportunities, and pre-order information in the coming weeks and months.
