Science Fiction art inspired by my Kindle Vella story "Woodpecker"

Tails (and Tales) of the "other" Kennedy Space Center,

This is a collection of art I made that helped me write Woodpecker.

Cannot claim the art is good, but can say I had a lot of fun with both the so called art and writing the crazy stories.

So yes, criticism is expected, however maybe you may enjoy an image or two?

Note on the Art, some of the pictures are mine that I digitally messed with.

Other pictures are my photos of public NASA art work, posters and propaganda around Kennedy Space Center. NASA owns the originals art work & I have simply modified for fun some of the propaganda.

Back of Book:

Across the windswept launch towers of Kennedy Space Center and stygian dark tunnels under the Launch Control Center, things are changing.

With each successful rocket launch, the barriers between the Multiverse weaken. Temporary gates open, allowing visions, dreams, gods, astronauts, demons, vamps, and tourists to slide between the boundaries of time and space. Follow old gods and electronic demons as they are reincarnated into other lives and loves in both the distant future and faraway past.

This actual NASA patch more than anything, had an effect on the story. How far can DNA be warped?

I know the research is only for the effects of deep space on humans in preparation to a Mars journey.......but what if....

Available on Amazon

End of Empire

Desperate times call for bold action.
In a desperate move to retain Florida and protect the treasure-laden galleons on their dangerous return journey to Europe, the King of Spain issues a royal decree offering refuge to all English slaves who escape Florida and pick up a musket to defend the coquina walls of Saint Augustine.
In another bold gamble, the King offers refuge to the dissatisfied Indian nations of the southeast who will take up arms against the English.
Clans, traumatized by war and disease, cross the Spanish Frontier to settle the cattle-rich land and burned missions of Florida.

Follow the descendants of the conquistador Louis Castillo in remote Spanish Florida, a wild and swept by diseases, hurricanes, and northern invasions.

 Book Two: Available on Amazon!
