Dear Writer-Friends,

I've been self-publishing since 2011, and I've shared the knowledge I've gained in two books: the Indie Author Survival Guide, Second Edition, and For Love or Money. I'm not an indie rockstar or a breakout success: I'm one of thousands of solidly midlist indie authors making a living with their works. These books are my way of helping my fellow authors discover the freedom of indie publishing. Write on, writer-friends!

Third Daughter - Steampunk Fantasy Romance!

No, it's not here yet. But check this out!

How freaking cool is that??

Go on, create your own cool, pulp cover.
You know you want to.

I'm still working on the story, but I'm excited to have an amazing artist signed up to do the REAL cover for Third Daughter. Here's a sample of his work:
A-MAZ-ING, yes?
Michael Komarck, Art for Magic: The Gathering

I can't wait to see what he does with the cover for Third Daughter! As for the ACTUAL Third Daughter story, it is coming along nicely, but still not expected for publication until summer. Meanwhile, follow me on Pinterest to see the cool images I'm collecting for visual inspiration.

  1. I played with it yesterday, but couldn't come up with anything worth saving. Yours is awesome though! Leave it to ole NB.

  2. Oh I am so excited for you! I still play Magic. That's awesome you got that artisit. Can't wait for this!

  3. I'm sure your real cover will be delicious! The visuals you've gathered so far will give your gifted artist great creative fodder.

  4. Wonderful pics for inspiration. And if the artist can come up with something as powerful as what he designed in the sample work shared here, then count me on pins and needles to see the results!!

  5. Wow, your pinterest has me fascinated. I'm not usually a fan of anything where "romance" is a big factor, but Indian flavored steampunk? I'm going to have to give that a try. :)

  6. Sounds like an awesome story and you've got great ideas for the cover. So excited for you!

  7. Who doesn't like pulp? Except in orange juice.

    1. Are you serious? Give me the Grovestand! I'll take all the pulp.

  8. Wow, that is so cool! I want to go play with it now. I'm definitely going to save the link. I haven't read any steampunk, but I'm looking forward to it.
