New cover for Thief’s Odyssey is now live!

Lindy Moone:

In case you’re wondering if I’m ever gonna post something original again, the answer is yes. Someday. Meanwhile here’s something about something original of mine — my first published book cover for another author. (And that’s something!)

Originally posted on John L. Monk:

So after some soul-searching, I decided to go with a new cover for Thief’s Odyssey. This one is a little more in keeping with other books in the genre, and the thumbnail is more readable, which is important when folks are browsing through Amazon looking flow_res_thiefor something to read. I also like the way the letters sort of pop out at you. That said, I love my old artwork to death and am sad to make the change. The previous artist did exactly what I’d asked and hoped for.

The new cover is by Lindy Moone — an incredible artist. She’s also an “Awesome Indie.” Very talented writer and designer. This new cover is, in my opinion, stunning. I love the way the letters slant into each other, drawing the eye. I love the footprints. In particular, I can’t get over that little logo she made. I didn’t…

DEMONS are you scared yet?

Lindy Moone:

Look at these covers by the amazing Keith Draws! They are for Harvey Click’s Demon series. Great books deserve great covers… and they got ’em!

… after getting commissioned to produce the covers for the Demon Frenzy series by Harvey Click. He gave descriptions of Demons that were incredibly challenging, but lets face it. I love doing stuff like this so what really scared me was would I be able to stop!
Here are the first two. More to come soon

Just Another Day at the Farmer’s Market

Lindy Moone:

Folks, meet Sandra, one of the authors from our anTROLLogy. Her story, Little Lambsy Deadsy, is the charmingly gruesome tale of a heroic, troll fighting girl. Here’s Sandra blogging (beautifully) about her “real” world in San Francisco, and it sounds quite scrumptious!

We wake at 4:45a and go about our morning routine without much talk. Coffee is made, toast consumed, a checklist of items to carry out to the car reviewed: the cash drawer primed with ones, fives, tens and quarters, a big baggie of kibble for the dog’s breakfast and lunch, freshly laundered aprons, the mobile phone credit card reader.

The dog sleeps through all of this and must be coaxed out of his warm bed to venture into the chilly pre-dawn. He moves slowly, clearly hoping we will change our minds and all pile back into bed to sleep another two hours but such is not to be.

IMG_0275On the drive to the bakery we review the tasks in front of us to ready for the market; pastries to be boxed up in bins, the tent and folding tables to pack. We pause our talk to admire the sunrise, all roseate gold…

New Release: Anthology: “For Whom The Bell Trolls: 25 Tales of Terror, Triumph & Trolls”

Lindy Moone:

A very kind post about our anTROLLogy from Christoph Fischer. And now he’s gone and given the book 5 stars everywhere, too! Thank you, Christoph!

Originally posted on writerchristophfischer:

trollFunny, touching, suspenseful—sometimes romantic, titillating and shocking—there’s something for all adult readers in this unique illustrated anthology from 23 authors.

Arranged from light to meaty fare, the antrollogy’s “menu” offers up fanciful and farcical stories, family-oriented tales, romance, mystery, high peak adventure, even magically surreal literary stories—starring all sorts of trolls, from the all-too-real Internet variety to the mythical mountain and bridge-dwelling trolls of legend.

Readers will laugh nervously at Humphrey the half-breed’s unfortunate beginnings, and bite their nails on behalf of Fergus Underbridge, hard-boiled troll detective. They’ll cheer a not-so-ordinary troll-fighting girl and want to hug—or slap—a woman lost in her own neighborhood. And whatever should be done about the boy with the head of a dragon…?

Trolls and Easter Eggs: For Whom the Bell Trolls

Lindy Moone:

What a thoughtful and wonderful review of our anTROLLogy, from author Carol Ervin. Makes me go all weepy and goose-pimply!

Originally posted on Carol Ervin's Author Site:

I started smiling when I saw the title page of For Whom the Bell Trolls, and though I hadn’t yet reached the first of the “25 Tales of Terror, Triumph, and Trolls,” I knew they were going to be more fun than terrifying.

My first smile was for the drawing of a horned, top-knotted troll head resting in (or coming out of?) the shell of an Easter egg. He didn’t look too terrible, just goofy. But what was the significance of the Easter egg? I looked it up. According to Wikipedia, an Easter egg is an inside joke, something hidden, as in a treasure hunt. In this collection, the illustrations are studded with “Easter eggs” representing the 23 authors. Clues to their meanings are hidden after each story in its author bio.

I was right, a few of these tales have serious themes and a touch of horror, but…

An April Fool… in Love?

Troll e book launch today — only at Amazon! Here’s a sneak peek at just one of my many illustrations for For Whom the Bell Trolls, the world’s first and only charity anTROLLogy for grown-ups, edited by John L. Monk and me: A Fool for Love. For me, this book has been a year-and-a-half long labor of love, after all. Of course, when you are a troll in love, “clubbing” takes on a whole new meaning…

Romance riotI hope you will buy the book today, if you can; since all profits will be donated by the publisher to Equality Now, the higher we can get the book in the Amazon rankings the more visibility — and therefore the greater income for the charity! Here’s my pitch for this unique book of funny, thrilling, mysterious, moving and sometimes naughty stories. (We mean it; this book is for adults who never quite grew up, not for kids who hope to do so!) In addition to stories donated by 22 authors from all over the world, you will find my first published illustrations… and even feisty troll haiku and an Easter egg hunt! So please share. And have a wonderful April Fool’s Day.

For Whom The Bell Trolls

Lindy Moone:

Victoria is too kind, and too modest… I love her story, and it has some of my favorite lines in the book in it. (Innit.)

Antrollogy is not a misspelling. This is an anthology of stories about trolls, the bizarre and brilliant brainchild of author Lindy Moone. Lindy is a one-woman combo attack of awesomeness who also illustrated and co-edited the anthology. (Her book Hyperlink From Hell is amazing and you should read it.)

I was a late addition to this project. Lindy read Bloody Zombies and liked it (*swoon!*) and asked me to contribute something. What she didn’t know was that I’m terrible at writing stories from prompts and at writing short stories and at writing to deadlines. If it had been a less awesome project I would probably have said no but, for an idea as weird and wonderful as this, I knew I had to…
