You can contact Joe on Deviant Art if you’d like – he takes commissions. How it worked this time was I gave him some ideas that I had for the book. This is what those looked like:
- Tube Train Platform Battle: In this idea, there’s a group of American Special Forces on a subway platform when the doors of a train open. Huge, larger than usual Gray aliens are there and a battle takes place.
- Divide & Conquer: A map of the U.S. or the world is shown, and you can see gray aliens and shady government/military people looking it over. It’s clear that some conspiracy is afoot and most people of the Earth will suffer.
- Battle at the Ship: A spaceship of some sort, and here’s a fight right at the opening or gangplank. Perhaps some aliens were rushing to get away and our team of Special Forces was hot on their tail. I’d imagine this is a real blood and guts scene.
- Overrun: Our poor, lone Special Forces soldier. He’s gotten separated from the rest of the team, and now a group of Grays or other hideous-looking aliens have surrounded him. He’s dead, you know it.
After that I got the image done and then had the same title and layout guy do this cover. I had him give me two versions, because I’m not yet sure of the title:
Yep, That’s what makes a good Book 2, suspense and a bit of a let-down heading into Book 3. You’ll want to be along for the ride, and you can start with Dulce Base, available exclusively on Amazon. Thanks!
