Cover Revealed: Enslaved by the Others by Jess Haines
Vampires, werewolves, magi and worse--the Others have joined the mortal world, and there's no turning back now...

As a New York P.I. and Other specialist, Shiarra Waynest has been in plenty of trouble before. But waking up in a windowless room the prisoner of a vampire slave trader is a shock for anyone. Shia has her wits, her bravado, and a couple of used staples, so maybe she can take on a mansion full of serious evil.

But although she's desperate to escape, Shia needs some answers too. Her friends are in danger. There are betrayers and spies among them. And even if she can figure out what's going on and somehow get a message out, she's still a captive of the worst kind... 

Cover Revealed - House of the Rising Sun by Kristen Painter

Kristen Painter recently shared (via her newsletter and Facebook) the cover for the first novel in her Crescent City urban fantasy series, House of the Rising Sun. The series is set in the same world as the House of Comarré series and picks up a few months after the events in Last Blood (House of Comarré 5). The cover art is by Mélanie Delon with the cover design by Lauren Panepinto of Orbit Books.

The cover is very different from the House of Comarré covers. What do you think?

Cover Revealed - House of the Rising Sun by Kristen Painter
Augustine lives the perfect life in the Haven city of New Orleans. He rarely works a real job, spends most of his nights with a different human woman, and resides in a spectacular Garden District mansion paid for by retired movie star Olivia Goodwin, who has come to think of him as an adopted son, providing him room and board and whatever else he needs.

But when Augustine returns home to find Olivia's been attacked by vampires, he knows his idyllic life has comes to an end. It's time for revenge -- and to take up the mantle of the city's Guardian. 

Cover Revealed - Macaque Attack by Gareth L. Powell

I was poking around on the Internet and saw that Gareth L. Powell had redesigned his website. I popped over to take a look. It's very, very nice. I also spotted the cover for the 3rd Ack-Ack Macaque novel, Macaque Attack, and it is as fabulous as the first two. The cover is by Jake Murray.  I am an unabashed fan of this outstanding series.

Cover Revealed - Macaque Attack by Gareth L. Powell
In his third novel-length adventure, Ack-Ack Macaque finds himself at the head of a dimension-hopping monkey army, facing an invading horde of implacable killer androids and a final reckoning with his creator, the infamous Dr Nguyun.

Meanwhile, former journalist Victoria Valois fights to save the electronic ghost of her dead husband and reclaim her stolen soul from the sands of Mars.

Macaque Attack will be published by Solaris Books at the end of 2014 in the US and Canada and in January 2015 in the UK.

Cover Revealed - Dream London by Tony Ballantyne

I'm thrilled to share the cover of Dream London by Tony Ballantyne. The superb cover art (and book design) is by Joey Hi-Fi. The novel is out in the UK on October 10, 2013 and in the US and Canada on October 29th.

Cover Revealed - Dream London by Tony Ballantyne
In Dream London the city changes a little every night and the people change a little every day. Captain Jim Wedderburn has looks, style and courage by the bucketful. He’s adored by women, respected by men and feared by his enemies. He’s the man to find out who has twisted London into this strange new world, and he knows it. But the towers are growing taller, the parks have hidden themselves away and the streets form themselves into strange new patterns. There are people sailing in from new lands down the river, new criminals emerging in the East End and a path spiralling down to another world. Everyone is changing, no one is who they seem to be, and Captain Jim Wedderburn is beginning to understand that he’s not the man he thought he was...
