Welcome to Friday everyone the weekend is only hours away depending on what time line you standing in, but like the song say’s, it’s five o’clock somewhere.

This week I am asking for help from all of you. The next book I’m releasing is titled Thunder Bear which is book one in The New Era Series.

Now that name should ring a bell. I talked about in the post made on 2-15-17 titled – From the Desk of Joseph Clay – Author: To Shred or not to Shred. This is the manuscript formally know as Rise from the Ruins.

I am close to wrapping Thunder Bear up and getting it over the great pond to Clare owner of Human Voices Editorial Services.for a manuscript review.

When I get to this stage of the process I start planning the art work. The rough draft will go to John Cannon so he can start the illustrations, and Rick Chappell and I have already discussed the visions for the cover.

Well as it turns out Rick came up with 5 different designs, and I can’t decide which one I like the best, so I decided to let y’all pick.

The process has no forms to fill out, you want be added to a mailing list, or be hounded by phone calls.

All you got to do is make a comment on this post or my Facebook page with the number of the cover you prefer. Polls will close Sunday March 26, 2017 at midnight.

With out further ado I present to you the choices for Cover Design of Thunder Bear.

There you go, cast your votes I will update the results in my weekly blog letting everyone know which cover is winning.

Till next week everyone have a great weekend and be safe.



  1. Eddie,

    I like the first one. TB1. It caught my attention over the rest. As a reader that cover would make me want to read the book, because I would be curious about the story.
