Cover Reveal

Fantasy Authors Unplugged: Cover Reveal from Mae Clair

Welcome to Archer’s Aim today where Fantasy Authors Unplugged makes a return. Today we veer into a slightly different genre, but still speculative with a cover reveal for an upcoming book from Mae Clair:

 

Release Date: January 15, 2019
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Supernatural Thriller
Publisher:  Kensington Publishing • Lyrical Underground Imprint

BLURB:
The past is never truly buried…

Generations of Jillian Cley’s family have been tasked with a strange duty—tending the burial plot of Gabriel Vane, whose body was the first to be interred in the Hode’s Hill cemetery. Jillian faithfully continues the long-standing tradition—until one October night, Vane’s body is stolen from its resting place. Is it a Halloween prank? Or something more sinister?

As the descendants of those buried in the church yard begin to experience bizarre “accidents,” Jillian tries to uncover the cause. Deeply empathic, she does not make friends easily, or lightly. But to fend off the terror taking over her town, she must join forces with artist Dante DeLuca, whose sensitivity to the spirit world has been both a blessing and a curse. The two soon realize Jillian’s murky family history is entwined in a tragic legacy tracing back to the founding of Hode’s Hill. In order to set matters right, an ancient wrong must be avenged…or Jillian, Dante, and everyone in town will forever be at the mercy of a vengeful spirit.

End of Day can be read as a stand alone novel or as a follow-up to book one of the Hode’s Hill series, Cusp of Night.

End of Day is available for pre-order through this link
and available to add to your Goodreads to-be-read list here.

Betwixt & Between

I’m a little late with today’s post but I finally got to it. I went on an evening run and ended up going 4 miles for the second day in a row. It was nice for Alabama this time of year. We’re in a weather pattern where some evening showers are blowing up to take the humidity and heat out enough to make a run very comfortable.

I headed down our street a way that I normally don’t go since it usually has a lot of fast moving traffic. But there is a section of road down that way that is closed off for construction which meant my normal route was the detour road. It was interesting to run down that normally busy stretch of road with hardly any traffic. It was interesting to see that some people – aside from the local traffic – just didn’t seem to believe the signs and drove down to the construction anyway. I guess some people just needed to experience the sight first-hand.

While I was running a couple of storms drifted past the area. One went left and the other sailed right and I was stuck in the middle. As I approached the house I did see a bolt of lightning from the second storm. YIKES! I was glad I was near the house at that point.

Our apple tree has fire blight and it required we have it pruned back. Now it’s just a glorified bush. The tree was in such distress that it didn’t actually have that many apples this year. We hope it will sprout new limbs soon and again next spring and actually have more apples next year. Also, the mower deck isn’t ready yet but it should be any day. I completed all the regular maintenance on the tractor.

The fiction proposals have been completed and sent out to my agent. I think these two books are rounding out nicely though I don’t know when I’ll find out anything specific about them. Now it’s back to work on The White Arrow and I’m eager to work on it at this point. Also, I’ve come up with an idea for the cover so I’ll contact my artist and see what he thinks about it. I might have the cover by the end of the month at which time I’ll reveal the cover.

That’s all for today. Thanks for reading and feel free to leave comments.

The Bow of Destiny Cover Reveal

I finished a crowdfunding campaign in September which was intended to complete my first novel entitled, The Bow of Destiny. Here’s the sample trailer I used for campaign.

As you can see, the artwork conveys a message but as stated in my campaign I needed high-quality cover-art for the book. This is one of my milestones for the book so I decided to use what I raised for artwork since the book won’t go to my editor until late November.

I contacted Chris Rawlins to work on my cover-art since I liked a similar piece by him entitled “Robin of Loxley”. I felt this image suited my concept very well so I teamed with Chris to develop a similar piece that fits The Bow of Destiny. Take look at some of Chris’s work which I think is fantastic. Before I post the actual cover, I’ll share an interview with the artist so look for that on November 7th at a later time to be announced.

I’ll reveal the newly designed cover on November 10th so be sure to check in on that day to see the cover. Want a sneak peek?
