VOID Issue #2: Like a THING Alive!
Welcome to Issue #2 in my ongoing online series, VOID! I have planned 12-issues to tell this tale, so we are just getting started. If you are new to Void, just read the preceding pages and you will be up to date. That’s another thing I really like about publishing online … it’s easy for new readers to catch up!
The cover to this issue was drawn by my friend and past collaborator, artist Rich Hennemann! Rich is an amazing artist and painter … he graced my 2009 novel, I Know Why the Dogwoods BLUSH with an original cover painting. (As a reminder to VOID readers, VOID is a bridge story between DOGWOODS and my planned 2012 novel, DOVE OF WAR! These tales all exist in the same “universe”). The original painting hangs on my home office wall even as I type these words.
Rich is quite adept at drawing images of his favorite film characters. One of his most requested commissions is of Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. Check out the body shape and style of Void in this cover. Can you see the Indiana Jones influence? I certainly can! I LOVE it!!!!
For more info on Rich and his great art, go to this site:
This issue will introduce some new and major characters to the Void universe … London Police Chief Robert Holmes, cult leader Darwin Koenig, and his assistant, the brutish Apollo Thorne. You’ll also see our hero’s continued use of “the Void” in different ways, and you’ll see him “tackle” a major problem quite differently than he did in issue #1′s Let Man Put Asunder!
So get ready for a new saga in the continuing tale of … VOID! And keep a close eye on the shadows … just because you see nothing there does not mean it’s safe!
Beginning July 28, 2011: Like a THING Alive!!!!

Just last week, Dogwoods Blush was nominated for the Fiction-Mystery Award by the Military Writers Society of America (MWSA). Winners will be announced at the annual convention in Pittsburgh, 1 October 2011. Problem is that I was also invited to be a guest in Nashville that weekend at the annual Nashville Horror Convention to promote non other than our “not so friendly” yet tragic investigator, DEACON VOID! More to follow!
of encouragement with the painting for the book. Thanks, Rich, for helping bring two (2) of my characters to life!
