Meet Captain Quasar

When my publisher introduced me to the artwork of Ryan Downing and said he'd be taking care of the cover for my Captain Quasar novel, I was stoked. Ryan's got mad skillz, and I knew Quasar & Company would be in good hands. What I didn't know was that I'd be invited to offer so much input during the initial stages of the creative process.

Ryan emailed me over half a dozen times to make sure he was going in the right direction with everything from Quasar's expression to the type of gun he carries to his eye color. I sent photos of various actors who could play the parts: for Captain Quasar, it was either Ryan McPartlin or Chris Hemsworth; for Commander Wan, it was Maggie Q or Jolene Blalock; for Hank the Carpethrian, I had in mind a cross between Tars Tarkas and an overweight orangutan. It was an awesome experience, and I couldn't be happier with Ryan's final product.
