I am very excited to share that The Raptor was chosen by the Independent Press Awards as a 2022 Distinguished Favorite for Fantasy, as well as Cover Design-Fiction! I am also equally excited to share that the illustration has been selected to be included and published in the juried art annual Infected By Art Vol. 10.
Last year I was commissioned to create book cover illustrations (front and back) for the first two books of the Cataclysm series by G.A. Finocchiaro. The first book, The Raptor, is described as a supernatural ghost love story that is dark, but with a glimmer of hope. I am very happy to see such a positive response and recognition for this illustration. I have worked on several covers for Finocchiaro and it is always a wonderfully fun collaboration. Creating compelling cover art for fantasy books is one of my favorite assignments and I am looking forward to continuing to work with Finocchiaro and other independent authors and publishers in the future!
The Raptor is currently available on Amazon and through booksellers such as Barnes & Noble. The sequel, The Omega, is also available along with G.A. Finocchiaro’s other books.
