Cover Reveal: The Thorn of Emberlain

You can imagine how excited we are to be revealing this particular cover. Yes! We’re looking to publish The Thorn of Emberlain before the end of 2015. We have sat on the secret of its dramatic plot turn for some long while and on this stunning image from Alejandro Colucci while Scott took a look at it, but now we just have to let you see it. As you can tell from the armour, the business like blades and the scarlet banner Scott’s new book takes Locke into a new world of risks and adventure. You could say that The…

Cover Reveal- Luna: New Moon

We are absolutely thrilled to be able to reveal the cover for Ian McDonald’s new novel, Luna: New Moon. Designed by Black Sheep (who are also responsible for Adam Roberts’ covers) this was one of those happy occasions when the designers not just hit the brief for the cover but make it better than you ever imagined it might be.

We’re so excited! You wait not very long at all for a new Brandon Sanderson release date and then two turn up at once!

Following on from that trilogy, Brandon then did that rare thing and moved the action in his world into a new epoch, with new technology, when he wrote Mistborn: The Alloy Of Law which was set in an age where technology had moved…

Cover Reveal: The Boy Who Wept Blood

The Boy Who Wept Blood is a new standalone adventure from Den Patrick. Set in his marvellously drawn world of Landfall (a world where characters and author alike have secrets) these are tight, fast moving fantasies driven by all-too-flawed and very real characters. There’s much to appeal to fantasy and historical readers alike with intrigue, deceit and a fair bit of swash-buckling to power the plot along. We wanted to reflect that in the covers. We also wanted to depict the characters but without setting their image in the minds of the reader (we’d rather their imagination painted them) so…
