Cover Revealed - iD by Madeline Ashby - March 10, 2013
Amy Peterson is a von Neumann machine, a self-replicating humanoid robot.

For the past five years, she has been grown slowly as part of a mixed organic/synthetic family. She knows very little about her android mother’s past, so when her grandmother arrives and attacks her mother, little Amy wastes no time: she eats her alive.

Now she carries her malfunctioning granny as a partition on her memory drive, and she’s learning impossible things about her clade’s history – like the fact that the failsafe that stops all robots from harming humans has failed… Which means that everyone wants a piece of her, some to use her as a weapon, others to destroy her.

These are very striking covers!


2012 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars - 2012 COVER(s) OF THE YEAR!

After an incredible 1189 votes over a two week period the results are in and ... it's a tie! Two novels from Angry Robot Books tied for first place with 492 votes each.  (I'd like to have a word with Angstrom A. Robot about this!)

I think this is simply a testament to Angry Robot's dedication to having wonderful covers for their novels.  It also has much to do with the fans for both Chris F. Holm's and Chuck Wendig's marvelous writing.

Cover Wars started as a way to recognize and celebrate the talented individuals who bring books to life with their eye-catching covers. While I may not judge a book by its cover, a terrific cover will certainly make me want to know what is on the inside.

Amazing15 and Joey Hi-Fi created spectacular covers for Dead Harvest and Blackbirds respectively.  Congratulations to both for being the Winners of the 2012 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars - COVER OF THE YEAR!

Cover Revealed - The Age Atomic by Adam Christopher

The sequel to Empire State – the superhero-noir fantasy thriller set in the other New York.

The Empire State is dying. The Fissure connecting the pocket universe to New York has vanished, plunging the city into a deep freeze and the populace are demanding a return to Prohibition and rationing as energy supplies dwindle.

Meanwhile, in 1954 New York, the political dynamic has changed and Nimrod finds his department subsumed by a new group, Atoms For Peace, led by the mysterious Evelyn McHale.

As Rad uncovers a new threat to his city, Atoms For Peace prepare their army for a transdimensional invasion. Their goal: total conquest – or destruction – of the Empire State.
