Looks suitably spooky. Do you you a physical model for the ship?

All the ones I'm using these days were modeled. I was lucky enough to have a fan who did modeling. He's stopped now, but it was good while it lasted.

I'm curious, what's the market like for custom spaceship design and 3D modeling art these days? Any idea about pricing?

None, sorry.

I was lucky enough for a fan who also played the same games as I did, to offer to do a cover for me, after I asked in the game forums if anyone could send me some combat game images. (I have permission to use them from the game makers.)

It all went from there, and he's refused all attempts from me to get him to accept anything for all the work he put in.

He even buys each new book of mine himself, when I'd be happy to drop a copy on his Kindle for nothing.

So, no, no idea what getting a model made actually costs.

But.... being able to use unique ships on your covers, is worth spending some money over. In the same way some authors do model photo shoots to get their unique covers. Probably similar costs involved.

You were lucky. I have a longtime friend who from his teen years would buy model kits and alter them to create characters for whom kits did not exist. There definitely are people out there for whom modeling is a passion who like to create their own models out of pieces of others. Unfortunately my friend is not in good health now and I don't think he's doing much anymore except seeing doctors.

No physical models involved. This is all computer rendering.

But I am hoping to get a few made using a 3d printer at some point.

George Lucas and co. did that for the Star Wars spaceships.  Pretty neat stuff.

Milestone time:

Of a sort, anyway.

I just noticed I had 35 of 36 novels inside 130k in the US paid store.

And 18 of them are inside 50k.

And Halloween is still hanging on to one of its orange tags.

As far as I know, my first Orange #1 Tag in Australia.

Also got one for the UK, but it didn't last very long.

That's a coup!

Very surprising actually.

I came nowhere near top 5 in any category in the US, and wasn't expecting to with this book either. And KU being so sluggish at the moment hasn't helped downloads on day 1.

I always check Aus and UK on day 1, but its a perfunctory check, and this is the first time I've hit the jackpot there. That I know of, anyway.
