Meet the Authors Whose Writing Inspired These Beautiful Covers

Your Clash Hostess: Gail Pallotta


Cover and Blurb A
Keven Newsome is a graduate student at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, where he is pursuing a Master of Arts in Theology specializing in Supernatural Theology. He writes stories that portray the supernatural and paranormal with a Biblical perspective. He's also the found and administrator of The New Author's Fellowship and produces music and videos through Newsome Creative. When asked about himself, he says, "I am a child of God, husband, father, and friend, in that order. I am a musician, novelist, and sometimes artist. I know the difference between Star Wars, Star Trek, and Firefly, but I prefer Lord of the Rings. My mp3 player contains a mix of Christian rock and movie soundtracks. I am more of a nerd at heart, but I am equally comfortable sleeping under the stars with a log for a pillow, playing Halo with a bunch of guys with cold pizza on standby, or playing intra-mural sports such as tennis or flag-football. In short...I am strange." 
He currently lives in Louisiana with his wife and their two children. Read more about Keven here. 


Cover and Blurb B       
RITA Award winner and Christy finalist Shelley Adina wrote her first novel when she was thirteen. It was rejected by the literary publisher to whom she sent it, but he did say she knew how to tell a story. That was enough to keep her going through the rest of her adolescence, a career, a move to another country, an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction, and countless manuscript pages. Shelley is a world traveler who loves to imagine what might have been. Between books, she loves playing the piano and Celtic harp, making period costumes, and spoiling her flock of rescued chickens.

Cover and Blurb C
James L. Rubart is the best-selling author of Rooms, Book of Days, and The Chair. During the day he runs Barefoot Marketing, helping businesses and authors make more coin of the realm. For fun James shares some of his favorites.
Movie- The Matrix and It’s a Wonderful Life. Book- The Chronicles of Narnia. Place: Wapato Lake, WA. TV show- Lost Food- Artichokes and crab. CD- The Beautiful Letdown – Switchfoot. Person: My amazing wife.
In his free time James dirt bikes, hikes, golfs, takes photos, and occasionally does sleight of hand. No, he doesn’t sleep much. He lives with his amazing wife and teenage sons in the Pacific Northwest and still thinks he’s young enough to water ski like a madman. More here.
