March has been a busy month. We’ve released Smuggler’s Dilemma, Cutpurse was sent to beta readers and now a new cover for Rookie Privateer.
You might ask why a new cover. It’s really about keeping things fresh. When I started Rookie Privateer I had in mind to emulate the old sci-fi books. The first cover did a fabulous job. As work progressed on the next books, I found Sviatoslav Gerasymchuk, an artist on the elance website. After he did Parley, Big Pete and Smuggler’s Dilemma, I asked him to take a swing at Rookie Privateer and you can see the results. I feel like he hit it out of the park.
What’s next? As of this writing, Buccaneer’s, Privateer Tales #7 is 45% complete. That might be a little optimistic as the writing feels like it’s going long. Cutpurse, Privateer Tales #6 will be released in April and I’ve got most of the outline of Privateer Tales #8 already written. So stay tuned.
