I ended up passing the work over to another dude (I may have lost out on a fine girl’s number in the process. Well…que sera sera).
I repurposed the work for my own book cover:‘Silver Eyes & Golden Torcs’ is a learning experience for me. It’s dystopian science fiction which doesn’t use most of the elements that I’m used to: no distortions in reality; no deus ex machina; more death; more mature content etc.
You can read the scenes for ‘Silver Eyes & Golden Torcs’ on Wattpad here: http://w.tt/1zeqPAo
Serializations will be posted only on Wattpad, (maybe FictionPress later on… can’t tell yet) please follow me on Wattpad ( @kwesiwoode ) to receive updates on my work.
