My fellow writer, Michael Shean, author of the Wonderland Cycle (Shadow of a Dead Star and the upcoming Redeye) and the novel Bone Wires has a new book debuting in April.
Today he's previewing the cover art for that book, the aforementioned Redeye, (and sequel to Shadow of a Dead Star) around the internet and he's kindly asked me to be a part of the big cover reveal, so here it is:

Check out the Wonderland Cycle:
SHADOW OF A DEAD STAR:
Seattle, 2078. The future
hasn’t been kind to the spirit of humanity; commercial obsession and
technological fetishism rules the day, religion and belief has died
screaming in the fires of war, and what remains is moral decrepitude.
Life in the future is hard on the soul.
As an agent of the
Industrial Security Bureau, Thomas Walken knows that better than anyone.
His job is to keep the worst kind of black-market technology out of the
hands of citizens, technology born out of the shadowy nation nicknamed
Wonderland. But the kind of fantasies that come out of that place aren’t
for the good people of the world. Wonderland technology is like black
magic made real.
Walken’s newest assignment starts out simply:
intercept a smuggled shipment of Princess Dolls, little girls turned
into sex toys, and bring them into custody. But when the girls are
hijacked from federal custody and Walken gives chase, he finds a trail
of bodies in their wake. Before he’s through, Walken will find himself
confronted revelations that will answer every question that the troubled
lawman has ever had about himself and the world he lives in – but his
mind and soul may not survive it.
"A dark, brooding piece of
future noir, SHADOW OF A DEAD STAR will take you down the rabbit hole on
a ride you won’t soon forget."
years have passed since Agent Thomas Walken and Bobbi January found
themselves at the heart of a conspiracy of unimaginable greed and
cruelty. The Genefex Corporation remains shrouded in mystery and Bobbi
January faces a life of unanswered questions and mounting
disillusionment to look forward to. But when she receives a mysterious
message from one of Walken's former comrades, she is drawn back onto the
trail. Now, Bobbi will find herself newly equipped to discover the
truth - about Walken, about Genefex and the Yathi race - and the key to
unlocking those secrets rests in the hands of a cyborg terrorist known
only as Redeye.
But the road to truth will be a dangerous one,
from the glamour of Seattle's ultramodern core to the sprawling
wastelands of the Old City and beyond. Alongside a band of lethal
comrades, Bobbi will face death and worse amidst urban rot, abandoned
subway tunnels, and ultimately the nightmarish halls of the Yathi
themselves in a race to stave off what may prove to be the death of
humanity itself. For the Mother of Systems will not be denied, and it
will take all of Bobbi’s intelligence and wit to stave off annihilation.
Drenched in blood and neon, Redeye is a tale of humanity on the edge of
a new and terrible reality.
A thrilling mystery set in the same world as
the Wonderland Cycle, Bone Wires is a grim trip into the streets of the
In the wasteland of commercial culture that is future America, police
are operated not by government but by private companies. In Seattle,
that role is filled by Civil Protection, and Daniel Gray is a detective
in Homicide Solutions. What used to be considered an important – even
glamorous – department for public police is very different for the
corporate species, and Gray finds himself stuck in a dead end job.
That is, until the Spine Thief arrives.
a serial killer begins harvesting the spinal tissue of corporate
employees all over the city, Detective Gray finds himself plunged into

murder, betrayal and conflicting corporate interest, Gray will find
