Despite spending the last few days running around Puerto Rico, when I saw the photo themes from Pete (of The Daily Post) and Ailsa (of Where’s My Backpack?) were respectively Cover Art and Numbers, I knew I had to find a moment to do a quick post.
The Cover Art part leapt at me first, since I don’t have to imagine what my book covers would look like… They already exist for real!
And as there are already three books in the Jaspa’s Journey series, with more on the way. So there’s the numbers part covered, too!
For those that don’t know, the Jaspa’s Journey is a series of travel adventure novels, written by Rich, about the exploits of none other than yours truly! The first book in the series, Jaspa’s Journey: The Great Migration, is set on Africa’s Serengeti Plain. It was properly published by DreamCatcher Publishing back in 2009, and even won an award as one of USA Book News’ Best Books 2009. Unfortunately, DreamCatcher closed when its owner passed away, and Rich and I are currently looking for a new home for Jaspa’s Journey (anybody know a publisher?).
In the meantime, we’ve made The Great Migration available as an eBook, together with the first two sequels… Jaspa’s Journey 2: The Pride of London and Jaspa’s Journey 3: Jaspa’s Waterloo.
To go along with this new phase in Jaspa’s Journey, we got brand new artwork done for all three books by Hollywood Animation Artist, Brad Hughes. Which finally brings me to my photo…
Brad has worked on a bunch of animated movies and TV shows, including Disney’s recent Winnie the Pooh and The Princess and the Frog. So when he agreed to do the cover art and maps for Jaspa’s Journey (not to mention my cool logo!), we were naturally over the moon!
