Advertisements for Self, Others



Today's GD inspired art is from Ryan Robbins, who tells me that he did this piece in anticipation of Comic Con in New York City. I had the pleasure of meeting Ryan at a World Fantasy Convention many many months ago. Not only is he great company, but he's a fantastic artist as well. Many thanks to Ryan for letting me put this piece up at the site.

Kiss of Life is available for preorder at generous discounted rates at fine online retailers everywhere, most of which now have the cover art up (how I wish they could put up the full wraparound covers; that would probably double sales in a heartbeat). Most often the book is listed as being by "Dan Waters", so you may have to hunt around a little to find it.

If you are on Facebook and want to be friends I can be found Here. Also, if you would like to join a Facebook fan site for Generation Dead, we'd love for you to join Here.

I just finished reading Stephen King's new book of short stories,
Just After Sunset, which I loved. I've been reading King since I could read and his collections never fail to disappoint. Be warned; despite the title and color scheme, the book is not part of the Twilight series.

lol.Now, when you say they arent doing a wrap around cover...do you mean they arent using the art work shown on your blog with the awesome girl on the front?

I won't lie, you're totally right about the sales thing. not because your writing isnt awesome, (because we all know it is)but I won't lie when I say that I normally wouldnt have been browsing the young adult section of Barnes and Noble and just randomly decided to buy your book. It popped out at me from a shelf as I walked by because of the artwork..THEN I decided to read the inside explanation and found out that it was something I would enjoy. lol...tsk tsk on all of us, judging books by their covers...but you all know you do it too sometimes ;)

Hi Yaz!

He is an amazing artist, isn't he?

Take care,

Hi Izz!

Why, I do believe that is Tommy!

Take care,
Dan

Hi DEAD VAMPIRE WHO'S A FAIRY LUVER!

Thanks! Okay! Kiss of Life will be out May 12th!

Take care,
Dan

Hi Delaney!

The book will have the full gorgeous art--I meant that I wish that the online retailers or "e-tailers" would display the full art instead of just the front cover.

Take care,
Dan
