HBVK update: Illustrator ANNOUNCED!

Hey all, thanks for following up with the blog. I wanted to post today to let you know that I can officially announce the artist on HBVK - the redoubtable Zach McCain. He's been involved in all sorts of projects, most recently he did the badass werewolf cover for Andy Deane's The Sticks, as well as the cover for Weston Ochse's much-anticipated sequel to Vampire Outlaw of the Milky Way, Lord of the Lash and Our Lady of the Boogaloo.

So I think it's fair to say I'm in good company here and real happy to have Zach on board. You already knew HBVK would kick ass. Now, when you open the book, Zach McCain will NOT LET YOU FORGET IT. NO DOUBT. 45 AUTO, PLAYIN' PINBALL IN THE GROTTO.

Okay, I'm on cold meds so I'm not sure where that last part came from. Anyway, can't say enough about the quality of this man's work. He has an Asian influence that I think meshes well with the subject matter of my book, without being cartoony, really respecting the story and the feeling. He's also impressionistic without being fuzzy, giving his images that nightmarish, almost tunnel-vision quality to them. Look through his gallery and see what I mean.

I can't wait to see what he's been working on, and will share it with you if I can (though no promises). I've talked before about how this is one of the most exciting parts of this whole process for me and I think now you'll get some idea why.

Lots more news in the pipeline, kids, so stay tuned.
