Longtails: The Storms of Spring Cover Reveal

This may sound strange, but I sometimes don’t actually start to believe that a book I am writing will be released to the public until the cover is finished.  There’s something about seeing the cover which just makes everything feel a little bit more real.  That being said, I am thrilled and ecstatic to finally reveal the official cover for Longtails: The Storms of Spring, which releases in print and ebook on April 24.  The artwork and design was done by the wonderful Dexter Allagahrei who has been fantastic to work with on this project.  Dexter is always timely and puts up with my many requests and changes.  He is also responsible for most of the artwork on this site.  That being said, Longtails would not be possible without Dexter, so I want to thank him whole-heartedly for all the love, support and time.  Okay, let’s get to the reveal!!!

Longtails: The Storms of Spring will be out in less than a month so please make sure to share the love with anyone you know who might be interested!  In the coming month, I’ll be adding new fanart, doing some livestreams about the book as I attempt to draw mice, and maybe, if you’re very good, I’ll post the first chapter of the book!  Let me know what else you would like to see as we near the launch day!

Thank you so much for joining me for the cover reveal!  Here’s to an amazing April and Longtails release!

Barrel-Fist Fanart – Alibi Cami

Hello again!  Tomorrow is the big day!  You are all going to finally get your first look at the cover of The Storms of Spring.  But in the meantime, I wanted to share one more piece by  Alibi Cami who did yesterday’s Denya art.  This one is of Barrel-Fist, one of the main villains of the book.  Minks use a fair bit more tech than the mice, as you can see here.  I can only imagine Barrel-Fist has just thwarted a mouse’s happiness with a smile that big…

Denya Fanart – Alibi Cami

Hello all!  I am so excited to show you the amazing cover art for Longtails: The Storms of Srping this Sunday, but in the meantime, we have some more amazing fanart!  This one comes from Alibi Cami and I love it because it is just so friggin’ adorable!  Seriously, I would read an entire children’s book with this artwork.  You know what?  Scrap the book!  Let’s start over and this time it will be a bedtime story!  Just kidding, of course.  I also love seeing Denya read her recipe book.  So cute!

Kando Fanart – Mean Green

Hello all!  Today I am so excited because I woke up to our very first Kando fanart.  Kando is a hardened warrior.  He’s literally taken down a deer all by himself as part of his rite of passage as a member of the Demon Clan.  That being said, seeing him look so friggin’ adorable was too much for me to handle.  I just love it!!!  Thanks Mean Green for this cute picture of Mr. Grumpy Pants!

Arthur Fanart – Maja Klonowska

This piece of Fanart this week comes from the talented Maja Klonowska who can be found at MayaWolf on Fur Affinity.  This picture is really cool to me, for reasons that have nothing to do with the artwork itself.  One of my favorite things about working on a new book is that it somehow manages to force me to meet all kinds of new people.  Longtails has had the great effect of introducing me to the Furry community.  And while not a Furry myself, I have to say that this community has been nothing but welcoming and wonderful so far!  That’s what this piece really represents to me because it is certainly done in a very Furry style.  Besides all that, Arthur loves him some rest and relaxation.  He’s more of the hardly working type than the working hard type.  Thank you Maja!!!
