While I was poking around my design files for my projects, I found the initial cover mock-up for Alder, which I have been working on since October 2016. It's a collection of short stories (longer than my very short stories). Three are nearly complete and ready to be shared. I have the ideas and visions for the others, but I need to actually finish writing them.
I'd imagine the cover will change, but after not looking at it for a few months, I'm still happy with it.
Here's the unedited first paragraph of a story in Alder with the working title of "Snap":
She snapped her fingers three times, and the man exploded. She gave a slight smile, and that was all. He deserved it, she thought. I'm doing what needs to be done.
