Building A Better Monster – Cover Reveal

Today I get to reveal the cover for Building A Better Monster, by Christopher Treagus. 😀 The book is anthology of stories, published by Barking Rain Press.

You can find the book here:

To put the cover together, I used multiple photographs I’d taken earlier of various animals, then put them together based on the different descriptions I’d found of a chupacabra. The publisher wanted a gridwork frame behind it, based around the concept of “building” the monster, and I want to thank my husband Isaac for giving me an idea of how to do it. Anyways, this is the cover that I completed. 🙂

    Not bad. It looks pretty good with the subtitle on, the wireframe concept illustrates the point nicely.

    Side note: tell your publisher at to fix the link to your website, it’s broken because of a typo.

  2. I fixed the broken link, so it is now working. We added the subtitle “Legend of the Chupacabra” after Stephanie finished the cover art, based on keyword searches that were leading back to the book. You can pre-order the book at Amazon here:, and you can also sign up to read the first four chapters of the book for free here:
