Cover Reveal: The Infected Manuscript

This month, I will be publishing a zombie short story I wrote several years ago by another title. It was collecting dust, yet I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

About The Infected Manuscript:

This story tells a tale about a horror novelist that is so caught up in his novel, he has completely shut himself out from his family. His wife and kids beg to spend more time with him, but he has a deadline to make and a bout of writer’s block.

It is a first person perspective of the novelist losing himself in his zombie apocalypse manuscript.


In November, I went back and updated the title and created a cover for it.

Here’s the cover:

Like my other titles such as 500 Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing Prompts and Zombie Writing Prompts, I have done all my own cover art using creative common license images and a bit of Photoshop and typography magic. I intend to continue to do my own covers for a few other future titles. However, this will not always be the case. Depending on the project I would like to have some covers commissioned.  Though I do love to work in Photoshop, create vector images, and do pixel art, there are certain art techniques I will be seeking out in future book covers that I cannot do on my own.

I look forward to collaborating with artists in the future.

The Infected Manuscript is set to release within the next week (December 2016). Stay tuned!
