May 31st Demon

And finally...

“I have walked this world before and others before it, I will walk it again and again long after you and this boy are dust, because my soul will endure. All your friends, the boy’s family, they all lie dead for no purpose other than to feed my hunger.”
The demon was only vaguely humanoid, in that he had two arms and two legs, but the long neck and lashing tail, gave him a decidedly serpentine aspect. His demon body was pure black from toothy snout to barbed tail. Scars covered his scaled hide in a pattern that disturbingly matched Lorace’s own. His back was stooped low just to fit within the hall.

May 30th Demon Lord Aizel

...A tall black form separated itself from the encircling demons and stepped toward him, moving with the grace of a dancer on a stage... Lord  Aizel reached down and wrapped Lorace's head in a hand with fingers like the long, chitinous legs of a black spider.

May 28th, 29th Demon

Ah, the Chaos Demon, a mountain of black noisesome flesh. Hundreds of the strongest among the demon horde bore its massive iron palanquin on their shoulders.

The Final Warden is free today, May 24, on the Kindle! Through my friends and fellow authors from DeadPixel Publications the word has spread. There are still 8 hours left in the day, but in case this is as high up the Free Kindle Fantasy / Epic top 100 it climbs, here it is:

May 24th Demon

Many of the demons amounted to warped and distorted things, mockeries of human forms.

May 23rd Demon

"Some appeared delicate and graceful, though far from beautiful. Many were feminine or had female characteristics..."

May 22nd Demon

I told Lorace that I thought the worm wasn't so bad, it kind of looked happy in an odd way. This of course prompted the description of a decidedly horrible abomination

May 21 Demon

Amidst the horde were those demons that crawled and slithered, undulating their ungainly bulks like maggots seeking rotted flesh.

The Fires of Falraan - Cover Preview

I have switched writing gears, shelving my work on the Return of King Levant to work on the story that has latched hold of me with a passion.

The Fire of Falraan will be the story of Captain Falraan's journey from a young girl swept up in a long pilgrimage to the uncompromising young woman who commands the Guardsmen of Halversome.

May 18th, 19th, and 20th Demons

The horde of demons was a vast sea of black, chaotic forms.

May 17th Demon

The demon of despair was a small, maformed thing, A swift, long-legged demon of the vanguard carried it in its arms.

May 16th Demon

Some of the horde crawled on hundreds of finger-like legs, made all the more monstrous for the twisted man-shapes that remained.

Falraan Almost Done

Detailing on her dress and background are all that remains. I am toying with the idea of jewelry and hair adornments as well. We shall see.

May 15th Demon

This behemoth demon was one of the larger horde relegated to the task of carrying the great planaquin. There was no doubt its bulk and strength alone would be capable of crashing through the Pilgrim's Gate of Halversome.

Update to the Demon a Day Promotion!
When the month of May is done, and all the demons have been drawn, you have until the end of June to send me an email with your address and choice of demons - one for each book of the Gifts of Vorallon you have read - or become a friend or fan on Goodreads or Facebook - to receive your demon on a signed postcard.

May 10th Demon

The sword-claw demon is one of my favorites. Fast, cunning, and deadly.

May 9th Demon

Today's demon is another from the group that assaulted Vlaske K'Brak. This claw-foot demon has long, powerful legs with backward knees.

Captain Falraan update

Trimmed the hair a bit. Recolored the dress and changed the corset and her breasts to a slightly less "push up bra" look. Still more to do... Lots.

May 8th Demon

The bat-winged demon had an awkward, unbalanced aspect, but its serrated tail spoke volumes of deadliness.

May 7th Demon

It tore at the wall of dwarven shields, seeking to pull them apart.

There's no monster anatomy here. Just tentacles and lots of them. Though in this rare glimpse there are a few mouths exposed.

May 3 Demon

I painted this guy with my creepy brush. I know there are many tentacled demons boiling up out of Nefryt, but this is the guy I see Tornin cutting apart in Vlaske K'Brak

May is Demon a Day month!

I have something special planned for my readers. I got the idea from John Gregory Hancock, author of A Plague of Dreams.

Every day in May I am going to draw a different demon from the pages of the Gifts of Vorallon trilogy. These demons will all be in lovely shades of black and printed on postcards. Readers of my books who friend me on Facebook AND on Goodreads can email me their address and recieve up to three of these cards (one for each book of mine they have read), all autographed and even personalized if you wish. Everyone who has already read any or all of my books is elegible, but the cut off date will be June 7th to request your choice of demons.

This is your opportunity to get a signed and numbered signature plate and have an extra bit of Vorallon.

Here are two lovely specimins:

Start on Captain Falraan

Just a start, very little specific reference on the face...tried to let my the Falraan from my imagination come out and I think I am nearly there. I have to make her a tad bit younger.
