Wednesday Whatever: Cover Reveal Coming

Hello Posse!

If you follow me on social media, I am sure you have seen my posts that the cover reveal for part 5 of the Into the West Saga Serial is finally coming. I have the cover art finished and we have finally decided on the title. Originally the plan was to have Into the West: Family Ties as book 5 and end the serial here. We already had the cover art ready to go and the story set. However, the characters in the story did not agree. They decided there was more to share with you all so we had to change things up.

If I haven't mentioned it before, when I write these stories it does not even seem to me that I am the one coming up with the story. For me, it is just like a movie playing in my head that I do not control, I am just watching and writing down what happens. I write everything stream of consciousness. There are no outlines, no plot notes, I just watch the movie and write it down so I can tell you what I am seeing. That might seem odd, but that is how it works for me. Sometimes I feel like a total bystander in my own work.

Regardless of how we got here, I have finally finished the cover art for part 5 and this one is very different from all the others. It is much more dramatic to go with the more dramatic storyline that is coming. I can't wait to share it with you all and hear from you what you think.

Keep watching my social media, especially my Stephen Burckhardt Facebook page (<--- click here to go). The cover reveal will happen there on November 1st. While you are here on my webpage, drop to the bottom of the page and sign up for our mailing list. I promise I do not spam you with a lot of crazy stuff and you can quit at any time. I just don't want you to miss out on any upcoming announcements. The first chapter of part 5 will be uploaded on the hidden page soon (have you found it yet?). You will not want to miss that.

Have a great week, posse!


First reveal happening on National Author's Day, November 1st, on
