Thanks!

I now have a longer, more descriptive blurb for my Amazon page.

Project Heavenstorm

The first few chapters of the sequel are on another thread.

I have recently been playing around with some online art AIs to visualise characters from my first novel.  For the Humans, I have used Nightcafe with an anime filter.  For the Dragons, I have used Dream, with some of my own retouches on Gimp.


Vithan Varox - the hero.

   


Tilanna Tionomes - the heroine.

   


Olokuvon - Vithan's best friend.

   


Alathaka - Olokuvon's lover.

   


Gabrielle Gilson - the anti-hero.

   


I might work on the villains later.

Here are some more AI-generated characters.


Dahal Savithar - The Big Bad.

   


The Pinstriped Man - The Man Behind the Man.
(I added David Bowie and Matt Smith into the description box).

   


Squadron Leader Chirakila - The Ace of the villain's team.

Neat! Congratulations - I hope it is doing very well. Smile

It would be entertaining to be able to say - We knew Darren Ryding back before he was famous.

Thanks Todd.   Big Grin

It's had 37 orders since the free giveaway started.  Unfortunately, advertising on Amazon can be very expensive.

Here's a new pic of Olokuvon.  I got the Dream AI to make him look younger and less dinosaur-like to match my descriptions in the novel.

   


Here's an ad for the free giveaway (which ends Wednesday the 8th of March, LA time).
Apparently, Dragons think my novel is better than sex.

Edit:  I've corrected my very silly mistake.  I stated that the giveaway ends Friday when it actually ended Wednesday (ie. 5 hours ago as I write these words).

While skimming through my first novel for the 47th time, I noticed a pretty glaring - and embarrassing - oversight that I had not previously noticed in all the years I was working on Project Heavenstorm.

None of the Dragons were wearing pants.

Fortunately, I have managed to correct this severe flaw by EXPLICITLY STATING that EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THE DRAGONS IN MY NOVEL IS WEARING PANTS.  Because I don't want people to think that I'm weird or anything.

You can purchase the OFFICIAL PANTS EDITION of Project Heavenstorm on Amazon.

And so ends April Fools Day.
