The Permanent Man - The Complete First Season

Almost a year ago, I envisioned a book series where I told the story similar to the way a weekly television series airs. I'll avoid going into the details of it as I've blogged about the process of writing it and the format extensively.

And so, The Permanent Man became a reality. Beginning on November 12, 2013 and running through to January 28, 2014, I "aired" a new episode of the series every Tuesday. It even had a double-length season finale similar to the two-hour finales that many television dramas do.

Continuing in that format, I'm happy to announce that the complete first season of The Permanent Man will be available in print and digital on April 8, 2014! The book will contain all 12 episodes of the season and will include bonus author commentary for each episode. The commentary highlights my writing process, points out interesting facts about decisions I made for the story, and even contains some spoilers.

In addition to this, buying the entire season comes with a discount. The single episodes all cost $0.99. If you purchased all of them by themselves, that would be nearly $12.00. But The Permanent Man - The Complete First Season will be only $9.99. It's like getting two episodes for free.

There's an even better deal on this though. If you pre-order the book in digital form any time between now and April 7, 2014, you can pick it up for only $7.99. That's 12 episodes and bonus author commentary all for the same cost as eight single episodes! Below are links where you can pre-order the book.

From Desmond Shepherd, author of Imaginary Me, comes the breakthrough adventure told in a serialized format. Private Investigator Patrick Hold’s life is turned upside down when a secret agency claims he is someone called the Permanent Man—a man incapable of dying. Fearful of what they want with him, Patrick attempts to escape, only to find himself catapulted back in time. With a pregnant wife waiting for him in the future, Patrick is determined to find his way home, even though all hope seems lost.

From the exciting first episode to the action-packed finale, relive every detail of the first season of The Permanent Man. With all 12 episodes of the season and bonus commentary from the author that takes you behind the scenes of each episode, The Permanent Man - The Complete First Season is a real find.

Designing a Book Cover - The Fourth Layer

 In my last post, I spoke about "The Third Layer" in my process of designing book covers. That was adding the author name. I also likened layers one through three to being a cake. It's baked. The layers are stacked. And it's edible. But in order to entice someone to eat the cake, the final decorations—icing, color, flowers, etc.—need to be added. So what can I do with my current book cover to spruce it up? The Fourth Layer of course! This is the crucial and final layer. This is where everything comes together to form the complete book cover. The steps I use below are my own. You'll need to determine what is needed for your cover when you get to this layer. Only you know your book. Only you know what's important. The Fourth Layer is where you can get creative. First, I want to continue with the older adventure book type feel. With The Legend of Kyd Lumin , I want people to think it's a book not published in 2021 but rather, published sometime in the 80'

Designing a Book Cover - The Second Layer

In my last post , I discussed how I go about designing covers for my book. That post covered "The First Layer" , which is the main background cover image. So off to "The Second Layer"! What is it? That would be the book title. It's important to make the title stand out properly. Doing so is the difference between a book cover that looks professional and one that screams mediocrity. Remember, often the cover is the first impression of a book. If the cover is boring and drab, potential readers will assume your book is, too. I know, I know. "Don't judge a book by its cover." But, well, that's the first thing people often do, whether consciously or not. Pick a font that pops and don't just use the default settings for the font. Vary and alter it to the best of your ability to give it some life. A good way to do this is to research book covers in the genre you wrote. Pay attention to how the title is presented. For The Legend of Kyd Lumin , whic

Designing a Book Cover - The Third Layer

In my last post, I spoke about "The Second Layer" of designing a book cover, which is making sure you title stands out well.  Now we head to "The Third Layer". This one probably will seem obvious and it complements "The Second Layer" . It is your author name. It's important that your author name be positioned and sized correctly. There are a few approaches to this. For well known authors—for instance Stephen King or James Patterson—having the author name prominent and big on the cover is good. The reason is, their names are so popular that the author name sells the book more so than the book title sells it. As a self-published author you could use this thought process for your cover to give the impression that you are a popular author. Of course, your mileage will vary with this approach. The other option is to not allow the author name to dominate the content. So you would want it to be smaller than the title. You could even make it barely noticeable
