Finalized Goatman Cover

Greetings everyone! It seems that Goatman: Flesh or Folklore? is nearly complete. I just got the finalized exterior files in my email. Below is the front cover. Take a look and let me know what you think!

I have to say this cover looks better than I could have ever imagined. The goat-man on this cover is, in my humble opinion, not only the creepiest Goatman ever rendered, but the most adorable. There’s something innocent and inquisitive behind those black, dark pools he has for eyes. Only the amazing Eau Claire artist Amber Michelle Russell could have achieved such a feat! I want to cuddle the guy, but I know he’ll just murder me and leave me stuffed in a hollow tree somewhere for my trouble.

The logo and exterior design (you know, all the heavy lifting) is by Mental Shed Studios, who designed my previous book, Washington County Paranormal. Mental Shed specializes in horror-oriented design work. They also operate a few swell websites like CultOfWeird.com, WisconsinSickness.com, and WisconsinFrights.com.

I know you’ll all be pleased with the visuals of this book once you get a copy in your hands! It looks so good that my only concern at this point is, will my humble words do the exterior justice?
