I'm publishing a novel soon and want to make a character illustration.

This is the description.

My name Kaidance Monroe, and sometimes when I touch people, I see how they die. After I saw my little brother’s death but failed to stop it, my parents sent me away, to a juvenile detention facility. I don’t let people touch me anymore. Not my fingertips, not my skin, not my heart. I like to make my own clothes by stitching together the donations we get; usually a bunch of crap that either fits like a parachute or something for toddlers. My sweater is a patchwork of different shades of inky, dark squares of colorless void. I make plain gray skirts that hang to my knees, with cute or funny T-shirts sewed in. They clash ironically with my unsmiling face. My Allstar high-tops are black and frayed, like my soul. I also wear a chunk of brightly colored legos around my neck. My little brother was working on it the day he died. The day I failed to save him. It’s unfinished, so I’ll never know what it was meant to be.

Most days, I just try to get by. But then I got a visit from a cute guy, who tricked me into giving up my secrets. I was broken out by a guy who said I was special.

That he needed me. For a while, I believed him. But once I found out what I could really do, I learned everybody wanted the power I possessed. And suddenly it’s not so easy to see what’s wrong or right. When good and evil both do shitty things to nice people, why should one side be forgiven, and the other damned?

I put part of it on Wattpad, if you want to read more of it.

I'm not exactly sure how Wattpad contests work, I think you submit art and tag me? 8000 points for the winner, 1000 points each for 5 runner-ups.


Shearwater: an epic mermaid fantasy by teosocrates
Shearwater: an epic mermaid fantasy
I book cover for a mermaid romance novel I'm writing.

Shearwater, Part One; a paranormal romance with magic, mermaids and Irish mythology. Hike the rugged Ireland coast, explore castle ruins and dark family secrets, as Clara discovers who she really is - and who wants to kill her because of it.

REVIEW from Unfathomable Reads:
I finished part one of Shearwater under a little less than 13 hours. I can’t believe it either! It’s just so good. The prologue in Shearwater drew me to the characters and into the story. There is enough mystery in this book to keep you keen but not make you confused. You do not need to worry about clichés, cause gurrrlll, this book exceeds my expectations. You have NO idea. I’m going to be bold here and say that this might be one of my favourite reads in 2016.


PS: I'm running a giveaway of cool mermaid swag, and this launch will also be raising money for ocean conservancy.

I'm a fine artist turned book cover designer turned indie publishing specialist. I run several businesses helping authors and artists be more successful.

I believe the purpose of our lives is to create something unique that entertains, instructs, challenges or helps others. I believe when we dedicate ourselves to what we enjoy, and refuse to compromise our time by doing things we loathe, we’ll become exceptional, and have something truly valuable to offer others. I believe all of us are capable (and thus responsible) of utilizing our creative abilities to become masters of our own lives, generating more money than we need, and reinvesting our new-found time and resources to make a meaningful and powerful impact.

More specifically, I help authors and artists produce, promote, and sell more books and paintings. Find out more:
