New Silent Invasion Cover Not a Hoax

As you have most likely seen, the next volume of The Silent Invasion — Abductions — now has a new cover. And no this is not some sort of hoax or an alternate universe.

Actually what happened is this: I received a message from space — through a filling in a back molar — that the aliens did not want to be portrayed on the cover! It turns out that  they appear in different guises to different people. Some see them as little grey aliens; others as wisps of smoke; and others see them as tall robotic-like creatures. So we had to change the cover or risk abduction into deep space or a parallel world (Earth 2 maybe?).

The aliens also suggested showing a few development sketches for the new cover. Here they are…

The Silent Invasion: Abductions is coming in May.

Watch the skies! The aliens are out there! And listen to your molars!
