I know, I know. I’ve been teasing you with this for months and you’re very kind to stick with me for so long. To not reach across the blue nowhere and stab me in the eye shrieking ‘Show us the damn cover already!’
Thank you. I’ll say that first. Thank you for your patience and your kindness throughout the entire project. It won’t be forgotten and it continues to warm me (though if you do want to see these things sooner than the general populace than my newsletter is the way to go :-p).
I’d also like to give especial thanks to Dave Johnson who designed this fabulous cover and put up with all manner of emails to the effect of ‘Can I see it? Is it done yet?’ You’re a diamond, Dave and for the rest of you . . . if you need an incredibly talented illustrator, this is the guy you want. He’s amazing.
So, without further ado, here is the front cover to ‘Silk Over Razor Blades’, first in the Saar’s Legacy trilogy.
And . . . for those of you who like to see everything:
It’s weird . . . seeing it here, I keep expecting to find problems or realise that I’ve spelt my name wrong or something silly like that. But no. It’s fine. And it’s beautiful. And I’m so happy I could cry. I have cried. On several occasions.
I know Raven has already had several releases, but this is mine. This is my dream of almost seventeen years. Come May 25, I’ll be so far up in on a high that you’ll need to prick me several times to deflate me.
I can’t wait.
Wanna win a copy? Well, stay tuned. Next week . . . I’ll launch the competition. 😉
