Alternate cover concept/promo image for THE BLACKENING OF FLESH

Pat R. Steiner has created two more brilliant pieces of art inspired by my ghosts and gangsters novel, THE BLACKENING OF FLESH, now available in paperback and Kindle from Post Mortem Press.

THE BLACKENING OF FLESH is about a high school graduate whose suburban home is haunted by five Prohibition-era gangsters who are desperate to escape the house where they were executed 54 years earlier.

First is an alternate cover, which has a certain Gastby-esque quality to it (at least, that’s what it brought to mind for me):


Meyer Wolfsheim would be proud.

And next, Steiner provided our first real look at Monica, one of the people still alive who knows about the sinister history of Jared’s house:


You can also just make out Wendy O. Williams on her Plasmatics T-shirt.

Click here to check out more of Pat’s artwork (and for links to his writing, too)–you’ll be glad you did. Maybe it’ll inspire you to create your own artwork or stories, which could set off a chain reaction of art inspiring art. Let the next domino fall.

Christian A. Larsen is the author of the novels LOSING TOUCH and THE BLACKENING OF FLESHnow available from Post Mortem Press.
