Cover reveal: The Eschatologist

I can finally reveal the cover artwork for my forthcoming novella, The Eschatologist, coming soon from the folks at Voodoo Press.


The image captures the tone of the novella well. It just screams post-apocalyptic nightmare doesn’t it? 🙂

Don’t let the image of the crucifix fool you. This isn’t a preachy story. It has themes of faith sure, but this story will explore just how far people are prepared to go for their faith.

Ultimately it’s a story about choices, redemption and a whole lot of blood.

Here’s the official blurb:

David Brewer is trying to keep his family alive in a world torn asunder by a Biblical apocalypse. Yet there is salvation, in the guise of a stranger who offers survivors sanctuary. All they have to do is declare their faith in God’s final – and bloody – plan.

Best-selling author and friend Tim Marquitz also provided this killer testimonial:

“Madness and murder and miracles all abound in The Eschatologist. Reminiscent of Barker’s early work, the end of the world has never been so bleak.” –Tim Marquitz, author of the Demon Squad

Right now the book is being edited and it should be released very soon. There will be a digital version and potentially multiple formats in print, which will include four original illustrations by yours truly.

So stay tuned, because the End is Nigh.
