What are Preorders, and Why Do They Matter?

And now…


Is that our original Alexia model on the cover?


Donna (my cover model and the genius behind Geeky Teas) and I remain friends to this day. She happened to have some more photos from an old series of shoots she did (several of which ended up on the original Parasol Protectorate series).

I bought one and ta-da, we have a cover with the same model on it!

Isn’t that awesome?

Who actually made it?

As usual I used the fantastic Starla to manipulate Donna’s image into something approaching the other books in the Parasol Protectorate series. And, as always, she did a wonderful job. See how it goes with?

Why blue?

I have no idea, I guess I just liked it? Perhaps it’s a bit close to Changeless, but I think of that cover as more teal.

Note it does have some differences? For example I chose a silhouette skyline for the background partly because I wanted to bridge to the cameo style of Fan Service…

Anyway, there you have it!

In the next cover announcement you’ll get to see it Dimity’s book, Defy or Defend. I hope you’re excited for that one! And yes, that’s the title. Sneaky Gail is sneaky.

Yours (drowning in cover art decisions),

In this short story Alexia Tarabotti attends what seems to be a dull London party, until the new werewolf Alpha turns up, is unconscionably rude to her, and sits on a hedgehog.

Quote to Sip 

Gail: There was Costco cheese, like HUGE 50 person cheeses.

AB (giggling): 50 person cheeses!?

GC: Like, wedding cheese.

AB: Surely that MUST be an anniversary.

GC: First year paper, then silver, then CHEESE!

AB: Would people stay married longer, do you think, if cheese were on the line?
