New Artwork for "Offspring"

Due to the objections (of a couple buyers) to the original cover art for The Sword of the Dragon: Offspring, this new piece was created. The artist is, as before, Kerem Beyit, and I think he has outdone himself. I actually like it better than the original.

This artwork issue was the only thing keeping Offspring from hitting the market. Now that it is ready I am praying the publication process will be timely. Many readers are eagerly anticipating this book and I'm eager for them to read it.

Very nice. I like it. It seems more... 'lighty.'

But.. what was wrong with the first one?

Several buyers at ICRS said they found the original cover sxually provocative. That is why this new piece was created.

Ah! Well.. I think this one is just as good... maybe even better actually.

Is your entire series going to be published by AMG now?

Andrew,
Yes, the seven books for The Sword of the Dragon series will be published by AMG. They have said they are going to offer me another contract. My book is selling very well for them and they want to work with me for a while to come!

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
