It all leads to an encounter with ancient but dangerous technology—dangerous to the target and the user!

Gregory Faccone hopes you will also check out the Tethered Worlds series. It may not make colorful fractals leap off the page, but they still can in your mind!
We just finished cutting the new Tethered Worlds series trailer. It is a fun, colorful, fractal filled experience! You will see some production art included. We also added tags for the first two books currently available in the series.
Book trailers are a relatively new phenomenon, but can be an entertaining and fast way to give people an insight into a novel. They transform the gist from a written piece of work into another medium well suited to the internet. Watch it full-screen and enjoy!
With the release of Tethered Worlds book two, Blue Star Setting, we have commissioned new covers for a new look to the series. We went classic for the introductory phase. Now that two books are out and the series is advancing in earnest, we decided on a more “techy” look. First, the redesigned Unwelcome Star cover:
You can see all the similar elements from the first edition cover, just rearranged. Again I called upon the fine artistic services of Lorenz Hideyoshi Ruwwe, who has painted all the Tethered Worlds covers up to now. I originally planned to have the spaceship coming through the hexagon on the first edition version, but could not get it to work well enough. This time we pulled it off.
For the Blue Star Setting cover, I wanted to convey an epic space battle, and of course the blue star. Two massive fleets exchanging fire in a largely blue system, and with the hexagonal egress still nearby.
We moved some of the elements around for the final, including the title and author text. Flexibility is a must when everything is jockeying for position on a book cover. Lorenz did a fine job making the egress angle dramatic.
We want the Tethered Worlds experience to be a quality one both inside and on the cover. Now that you have enjoyed the covers and the story behind them, consider reading the series and find out what this hexagonal thing in space is all about.
Gregory Faccone is author of the Tethered Worlds series, available at Amazon. He wants you to go on an adventure into space with his series. And honestly, it is a lot cheaper than trying to get to the international space station.
