Jin Shei Cover from sgreer

A Behind-the-scenes with Kyle Cassidy: Top Sekret No Longer!

Last week I did the cover for Alma Alexander's new short story collection Weight of Worlds (the Kindle version is $2.99 on Amazon right now). This was months in the making and I'm glad it's come together. The titular story, "Weight of Worlds", is about a young man, balanced precariously on the edge of fortune and folly who learns of a strange legacy left to him by his dying grandfather. Alma had initially asked for a cover that showed a group of seven marbles suspended in space, which we did (it's behind the cut), but after reading the story I became convinced that the thing to show was the main character at a critical time, so I did a second cover with model Joshua Taylor which I'm bang up happy with. The overlaying texture, if you're curious, is a detail from a scan of the Shroud of Turin which I used only because I think it's cool to say it's a detail from a scan of the Shroud of Turin.

There are three other versions, behind the scenes stuff and some technical "how to" photo info behind this cutCollapse )

Roswell makes friends with the model because Roswell always makes friends with the model.
