Okay, so! I have been going back and forth on whether to mention this yet, but here it is: I’m having brand-new covers done for the Black Dog series. The first new cover went live yesterday:
I wasn’t going to mention this until the four novel covers were all finished. Then I was going to put the new covers on all the books, just in time for Copper Mountain to be released. But I’m ALSO scheduling Black Dog free for October 30 – Nov 3 and running various free-book promotions during that time, and it turns out that to schedule those promotions, I needed the new cover on the book. So instead of waiting, I will be switching the covers as they are finished.
What I wanted:
–A style of cover that was more genre-specific. I think — I hope — that this new cover screams URBAN FANTASY / PARANORMAL.
–A very simple cover, with figures that are eyecatching and a black dog with plenty of sheer size and monstrousness, but not too werewolf-y.
–Super-readable title and author at thumbnail size.
I think this cover ticks those boxes. I hope you all like it, and I REALLY hope that prospective readers like it and find it clickable. The Pure Magic cover is very closely related to this one. It’s also finished and should be going up in a few days; the artist is starting the cover for Shadow Twin now.
