concept art for “this wasted land”

I’m about halfway through drafting This Wasted Land, my young adult modern-fantasy/horror novel, and I thought I’d share with you some concept art that I’ve whipped up. Because my protagonist Alyx, a 17-year old Korean-American girl, is an artist, I’ve done the piece as something she might sketch.  Enjoy!

Kenton Kilgore is forging a new direction in young adult science-fiction and fantasy.  His latest work-in-progress is This Wasted Land, a modern-fantasy/horror novel, to be published in early 2017.

Kenton is the author of Dragontamer’s Daughters, based on Navajo culture and belief.  He also wrote Lost Dogs, the story of a German Shepherd and a Beagle-mix who survive the end of the human world, only to find that their struggles have just begun. With Patrick Eibel, he created Our Wild Place, a children’s book about the joy to be found in exploring Nature.
