SPRINGS FOLK! Saturday, October 8, come out and support a diverse group of LOCAL authors at a swinging little event. We’ll be talking our books, our bios, our strange brains.

The GAIAD Gets a New Cover

The_GAIAD_Digital

I am pretty damn PLEASED to announce the release of a NEW COVER for The GAIAD by designer Joseph Marsh. Joe’s based out of Colorado Springs and I felt pretty privileged to be able to work directly with such a talented local artist. He didn’t just formulate some quick design based on my description or some vague instructions I gave him, but took a copy of the book to Peru with him, reading it in what I can only imagine were some pretty inspiring places. The result was a wholly original image inspired by the deepest themes of the story. The new cover can be found representing both the Kindle and Print editions of the book:     Will Burcher is a former police officer and current author of “The GAIAD,” a story of ancient secrets not quite forgotten and the positive power of global perspective.

“The GAIAD” – an Excerpt

  Prologue Head-on it was nearly invisible—a mere point of light as bright only as the faintest and most minor background star. If viewed obliquely, however, it was something different. The inconsequential speck began to elongate and brighten with the angle and it became a distinct and very artificial, linear form. The object began to move, slowly drifting against the ubiquitous stellar backdrop. There was a brief flash, a pulse of platinum light at the object’s tapered rear and it accelerated, its magnitude expanding and it began to stir a sense of size and mass. As it approached, the surface of it became visible—a damasked metal, reflective and shimmering. The ship was bulbous at its front, though the nose appeared sharp, as a teardrop, giving it a vaguely avian form. The rest of the structure tapered long and impossibly acute—the entirety of the craft evoking a sewing needle, traveling in … READ MORE…
