December milestones

Two projects months in the making each came to fruition today with the preliminary release of The Mine audiobook and the completion of the first draft of The Mirror.

Narrated by Aaron Landon and published by Podium Publishing, the audiobook is now available to pre-order at Audible.com. The unabridged first novel of the Northwest Passage series will be released on January 10, 2014. It is ten hours in length.

The Mirror, the continuation of The Mine and The Show, will now undergo several rounds of editing and proofing. I expect to publish the fifth and final book of the series by March 31.

A new look for an old book

One thing I've learned in nearly two years of writing and publishing novels is that you should never let an opportunity slip through your fingers. So when I was given the chance to update The Mine's original cover with a flashier version, I took it.

Podium Publishing, a Toronto-based publisher of audiobooks, produced the new image. The cover will closely resemble the one used for The Mine audiobook, which is currently in production.

Many thanks to Cannon Colegrove for his work on the original cover, which was based on a photograph by Steve Jurvetson of the San Cristobal Mine, an abandoned mercury mine near San Jose, California.
