Today I’m really pleased to be sharing with you the cover for Ben Galley’s forthcoming book : Chasing Graves.  This is the first instalment in a new trilogy that sounds deliciously dark and decidedly promising.  Chasing Graves takes place in the City of Araxes where the only thing you can be certain of is ‘death is only the beginning’.  More information below but for now feast your eyes on the cover:

 

Wait for it…

Are you not entertained? Maybe scared?  Or just downright intrigued? Of course, you’re all three and so below is a little more information to whet your appetite:

Meet Caltro Basalt. He’s a master locksmith, a selfish bastard, and as of his first night in Araxes, stone cold dead.

They call it the City of Countless Souls, the colossal jewel of the Arctian Empire, and all it takes to rule is to own more ghosts than any other. For in Araxes, the dead do not rest in peace in the afterlife, but live on as slaves for the rich.

While Caltro struggles to survive, those around him strive for the emperor’s throne in Araxes’ cutthroat game of power. The dead gods whisper from corpses, a soulstealer seeks to make a name for himself with the help of an ancient cult, a princess plots to purge the emperor from his armoured Sanctuary, and a murderer drags a body across the desert, intent on reaching Araxes no matter the cost.

Only one thing is certain in Araxes: death is only the beginning.

Now, if you’re anything like me you probably need just a tad more information.  So, firstly, and most importantly, I think, when is this little beauty due for release: December 7th 2018 (eBook & Paperback).  That’s right, make a note in your diary, free your schedule, pre order one today 😀

If you want to know more about the cover, which obviously you do, look no further:

Finally, Mr Galley – everything you need to know in order to get in touch with the intrepid author himself – go stalk, I mean, go check him out:

And, if that wasn’t enough and you’re scratching your bonce thinking ‘hey up, don’t I know this author’- well, yes, you probably do.  Go check out his goodreads page for a starter – very impressive list of books right there.  And, here are my reviews for Ben’s SPFBO book, Bloodrush and his emotionally loaded Heart of Stone.

I’m very excited to read this one.

Cover Reveal: Imperial Towers (Book of Never #5) by Ashley Capes

Today I’m really pleased to be able to reveal the cover for the next Book of Never by Ashley Capes: Imperial Towers.

I recently read the first Book of Never, The Amber Isle as part of the Self Published Fantasy Blog Off (details here).  The Amber Isle was in my top 6 books and I will definitely continue with the series (my review here).  Anyway, enough of my yapping, let’s see this cover:

So, here’s a link to Ashley’s Goodreads page so you can go and check out the other books in the series and in fact check out all his other books whilst you’re there why not!

 

Cover Reveal: The Dragon’s Blade: Veiled Intentions by Michael R Miller

Today I’m really pleased to be able to reveal the cover for the second book in              Michael R Miller’s Dragon’s Blade series:

The Dragon’s Blade: Veiled Intentions

Firstly, before I tell you anything more about the book lets get to the cover – then we can talk:

DRAGONBLADE_BK2 high res.jpg

And, here are the first and second in series so you can compare the two:

They really are beautiful covers, wonderfully detailed and happily sharing a design that is both consistent and easily recognisable. (For those of you who like to know all the things the designer is Rachel Lawston and this is her website  : http://www.lawstondesign.com/book-design.html.

If you occasionally stop by here you might recall that The Dragon’s Blade The Reborn King was one of the entrants for this year’s SPFBO (details here).  The book was read and reviewed by The Bibliosanctum and the cover was actually the winner of the cover contest that took place as the competition began.  There were some excellent covers this year and a selection of them can be found here.

The Dragon’s Blade Veiled Intentions is due for release on the 10th February 2017 and to whet your appetite here is the description:

Rectar has always had his sights set on conquering the human lands. His demonic invasion of the west is gaining momentum – an unrelenting horde unhindered by food or sleep. Now, only the undermanned Splintering Isles lie between the demons and the human kingdom of Brevia. If the islands fall, the rest of Tenalp will soon follow.

The Three Races must work together if they are to survive, but they have another problem – Castallan. The traitorous wizard has raised a deadly rebellion and declared himself King of Humans. He believes himself safe in the bowels of his impenetrable Bastion fortress, but Darnuir, now King of Dragons, intends to break those walls at all cost.

To face these threats, all dragons, humans and fairies must truly unite; yet old prejudices may undermine Darnuir’s efforts once again. And as the true intentions of all are revealed, so too is a secret that may change the entire world.

Finally, if you’re intending to start this series you might be interested to learn that copies of book No.1 can be purchased for £1 by those readers who sign up to the author’s mailing list.  Author details below:

Cover Reveal: The Heart of Stone by Ben Galley

Today I’m really pleased to be able to reveal the cover for The Heart of Stone by Ben Galley.     Firstly a little bit about the book – to whet your appetite as it were:

Mercenary. Murderer. Monster. He has been called many names in his time.
Built for war and nothing else, he has witnessed every shade of violence humans know, and he has wrought his own masterpieces with their colours. He cared once, perhaps, but far too long ago. He is bound to his task, dead to the chaos he wreaks for his masters.
Now, he has a new master to serve and a new war to endure. In the far reaches of the Realm, Hartlund tears itself in two over coin and crown. This time he will fight for a boy king and a general bent on victory.
Beneath it all he longs for change. For something to surprise him. For an end to this cycle of warfare.
Every fighter faces his final fight. Even one made of stone.
And, now, I won’t keep you waiting any longer, feast your eyes on this gorgeous cover!

The first book I read by Ben Galley was part of the Self Published Fantasy Blog Off last year.    Bloodrush which is the first book in the Scarlet Star Trilogy.  I really loved it (my review here) and have just started the second in series.  Seriously, on the strength of Bloodrush alone Ben Galley is definitely an author on my wishlist!
