You remember there are two sets of covers for these books?
Well here are the wraparounds for Cover Series 1
Girl Volume 1
Girl Volume 2
We think they are rather stunning.
Va-va-va-voom! Here’s the fabulous cover art for the forthcoming noir novella by Graham Wynd, Extricate. Isn’t that Sarah Anne Langton something? I hear the author has been inspired to get right to work on a new novella just to get another gorgeous cover! I’m not saying you can tell everything about a publisher by the great cover artists they pull, but you can sure tell a lot!
‘EXTRICATE is a twisty- turny noir tale of dishonor amongst thieves that is skewered with hot lust and cold blooded murder.’
~ Paul D. Brazill, author of Guns Of Brixton and Gumshoe
‘Crime meets erotica in a fevered novella. Graham Wynd has written a fluid and tight story with vivid characters in situations that are inextricably charged with a sexuality from which you will find it hard to extricate yourself.’
~ Richard Godwin, author of One Lost Summer, Apostle Rising and Mr Glamour
Extricate will be out early in 2014.
We have kept this one a bit quiet really but in April we are delighted to be releasing a novella by the wonderful Sarah Cawkwell.
Sarah opened Tales of the Nun & Dragon with ‘The Ballad of Gilrain’ which we loved so much we made her write an actual ballad which was recorded by Under a Banner.
Blood Bound is a more traditional fantasy with the wit and tight story telling that is typical of Sarah as well as wonderful characters I hope she will revisit at some point.
‘Agreement is made this night between Jareth De’Roth and Taryanderon ap Pallerion. For the successful procurement and return of the item (as
described) in its original state and undamaged, the promised and most generous payment will be made in full. Should this contract be broken, the
consequences will be most severe. By signing this oath, you acknowledge your full and complete understanding of these terms.’
It is a thing of beauty is it not? The cover is designed to fit with the style of Nun & Dragon and is by Vincent Holland-Keen.
The book will contain stories by Chloe Yates, Andrew Reid, James Bennett, Cat Connor, Geraldine Clark Hellery, Peter Ray Allison, a comic strip by Jasper Bark, Margrét Helgadóttir, Alec McQuay, Haralambi Markov, T.F. Grant
Our penultimate release for 2012 is almost ready to go and here is a look at the draft cover.
This is the clean version of the paperback cover. Click it to see it in all it’s glory, but I love it, so very beautiful.
The ebook is available now from Amazon and Wizards Tower
