So here is the cover I designed for my upcoming collection of horror stories. I’m putting the final touches on, and I’ll be releasing on Kindle probably within the week. So excited!

On My Desk today…

Screen Shot 2017-02-20 at 12.30.17 PM.pngHere is a little progress picture for you. Today I’m designing the cover for my own upcoming anthology. If I keep up this pace, I think the release will be around March 1, 2017. Hope you like what you see here! The title of the book is “One Past Midnight: 13 Terrors” by Kathy Ferrell. I’ll be releasing on Amazon Kindle, hope you will check it out!

My short story “The Stereoscope” will soon appear in the upcoming anthology “Tales of Mystery, Suspense and Terror”. For my faithful readers, here is just a small, savory bit for you, to whet the appetite.

There were many of him in Africa, almost every photo displaying his skill as hunter. Elephants, wildebeest, all sorts of horned antelope, two spotted leopards and three massive lions. He sat leaning his back against one, laughing, both fists clutching hanks of its shaggy mane. He was looking right into the camera, showing his teeth and I thought he looked like a madman.

I think you will enjoy my latest dark tale, and I want you to share with me what you think. I love hearing from you! The book comes out in October, so hurry over to Chuffed Buff Books to reserve your copy now! I’m so pleased to be included  in such a twisted nest of horror. But then, I do feel so at home.

Until we speak again, my dears. Bon nuit!

Chantal Noir, Steampunk Adventuress

Here’s another recent work for Tales of the Talisman. “The Coppergate Killings” illustrates Christine Morgan’s fantastic story by the same title. Appearing in issue 4, Volume 8, I think Chantal Noir is a superb heroine, and hope to read more of her steampunk adventures! I had a ton of fun with this, and would have loved to create it in color! I put on a frilly nightgown and used myself as the model to capture the pose, sketched it out in pencil and completed in Corel Painter.

In honor of Bela’s birthday, here is one of my earliest illustrations. It was done for an amazing magazine titled “Outer Darkness”. The story was titled “What We Did to Bela”, and it was very good, chilling. Unfortunately, I cannot recall the author’s name at the moment. Fifteen years have passed, so if anyone knows the story’s author, hit me up! Hope you enjoy, and click the pic for my portfolio! 🙂
