The Death of Death is Now an Audiobook

I'm happy to announce that my novelette, The Death of Death is now an audiobook available on Audible.com, iTunes, and Amazon. Through the great service of the Amazon-run ACX (Audiobook Creation Exchange), I was able to put a voice to my words, and it's been a surreal experience listening to it in the accent I intended it to be in. I thank Cardiff Television Sound Studios of Wales and their voice over artist, Deborah Young for helping me realize this.

If you're the type that can't stand to read words, and there are more of those types than I thought there were, and prefer to consume them orally, then give this a gande--uh, a listen and tell me what you think. 

The audiobook version of Autonomously Yours will be following in about a month's time. 

Special coupons for discounts will also be coming soon. Enjoy!

New Cover Variations For My Novels

Here are two different cover variations for my novels, The Death of Death and Autonomously Yours.

For Death I just changed the font to a font I found to better fit my original desire for it. It's a little more gothic than what I originally used, which, I think, was Hoefler Text. A good, gothic font, but just not gothic enough for my tastes. Trattatello is what I'm using now, and I love it. It's just the right amount of goth I was looking for.

For Autonomously, I've also changed the font, but the most noticeable change I've made was to the Compandroid's pupil. It now looks like the original vision I had in my head for the cover. I asked a couple of people their opinions on which I should do, the broken electronic heart pupil, or the normal one and the normal one won out, but I've always preferred this version which I think is more visually striking. I've also added a small border, just because I like the look of it.

I've posted all four versions for comparison's sake. Which do you prefer?
