I've been waiting for the day the publisher would publicly reveal the covers I did for the first two books in upcoming "Star Trek: Seekers" series (see my earlier blog for details: rob-caswell.deviantart.com/jou… ), which I completed last December. Today is that day, which is cool and fun in and of itself, but the bigger surprise was the venue for the rollout. The covers were featured as an exclusive in today's (May 8) USA Today "Book Buzz" section, in both the print and web versions, along with a bit about myself and how the project came about!! I was blind-sided... in a good way! You can read the online version here:

The USA Today print blurb on Seekers by Rob-Caswell

A big thanks to the modelers who supplied the critical foundation for these works: David Metlesits (D7), Mark Azevedo and Ptrope (Sagittarius/Archer), Fabio Passaro (Klingon BoP), and Georg Ankelakis (Constitution/Endeavour). If you care to chime in I'd like to hear which covers grabs you more :)

Star Trek Seekers 1 - formatted by Rob-Caswell Star Trek Seekers 2 - formatted by Rob-Caswell

The books will be released in July and August, respectively. In a way this first outing is a two-part story, starting with the crew of the Sagittarius and concluding in the next book under the crew of the Endeavour. Myself and the authors will be at the Shore Leave convention ( www.shore-leave.com/ )in the Batlimore area to celebrate the the publication. Both books are now available on Amazon (et al) for pre-order.

The first cover edges it for me... But that's because I've fallen in love with the Archer class model.;)

It's funny how many people look at that picture and think the ship is upside down?!
