Psychic Cover Reveal!

Here is the front cover to my new novel, Psychic.

I decided to do the cover early, this time. I’m still polishing the manuscript, which, I think, still has a couple of months to go. But I’ve had such a hard time visualizing what I wanted for the cover since the very beginning of this manuscript’s creation…and, with the help of Karen Duvall, of Duvall Design, we came up with a great image, huh? I really love it.

Psychic is about a humble and angst-ridden hotline psychic who gets embroiled within a remote viewer government conspiracy, headed up by one shady, evil, Victor NMI Black. It’s an action/adventure that shows the origin of The Man With No Name (MWNN), a character from Sleepwalkers, and interlaces an alternate history storyline with John F. Kennedy. The story takes place in 1994, where JFK is 77 years old. The date is also significant, since the official remote viewer organization the government had used (in our present-day reality) was officially disbanded that year. I use a present day organization, The Monroe Institute and morph it into an alternate location, called the JFK Center, where my story’s remote viewer activities take place. The story is heavy on probabilities…the different roads that actions and people can take…or not. I play around with time…time travel…paradoxes…how scary, nefarious people can come into other people’s lives and simply take them over. How much of what you read in the news is real…or fashioned. Can “facts”…change? This is an intricate story…a gritty story (much grittier than Sleepwalkers…but it is part of the Sleepwalkers “universe”; I expect at least one more novel to come out of this universe)…and gets into the “backgrounds” of our lives and how things may—or may not—come into being in our everyday lives, however nasty those things may be….

Many, many thanks go to my “cover girl,” Karen Duvall, of Duvall Design. And I hope you’ll all join me when Psychic is unleashed upon the world, and enjoy what I’m billing as the ultimate conspiracy!

Feel free to freely use the cover graphic in any (legal and tasteful) ways possible, just properly attribute ownership!

      Thanks, Wendy!

      Normally, I have SOME idea what I want on a cover, but this story was so intricate, I was at a loss! I knew I didn’t want anything traditionally associated with psychics…crystal balls, scarf-wrapped gypsy heads, et cet, so when I saw a set of images Karen had collected for ideas, I jumped at the one we ended up using, plus/minus the tweaks that ended up with the final product. I was très heureux with the end result!

    It was my pleasure, Frank! I’m so pleased you like it and I’m eager to read this book. 🙂

    Karen does a great job; she just did mine, too. The cover really catches the reader’s attention, especially the added line of Nowhere to hide. Sets up the tension of not even being able to escape through time. The cover alone should attract a lot or readers.

      Why, thanks, Liz!

      I like having the silhouette of the woman, in there, too, cause i didn’t want some standard human image…defined face and all. I wanted something more ominous and mysterious, and that nailed it for me, plus I loved the colors, the tone/mood. I was also having issues with how to portray “probabilities,” because I heavy deal in them in the novel…Karen really nailed those elements! I’m glad we nailed it, and real happy with everyone’s comments, cause it shows we done good! :-]
