...er, what it says on the tin, really: I have a cover!



And yes, this is the one I was angsting about earlier! I'm rather pleased with how it turned out - the base is a stock photo I found myself, and I really like how the silhouette of Kitty and the title font look on top of it.

Due out around August 21, I believe. :D

I have recently been sent the cover art questionnaire for Rael's second story, the novella A Blast from the Past (due out August), and I'm finding it unexpectedly hard to complete.

This isn't the first cover art questionnaire I've done – but for Snared, and Pricks and Pragmatism (coming out in September – I can't wait!) I had a pretty good idea what I wanted, and the art departments did me proud, bless 'em (wish I could show you P&P, but not allowed yet). I had some input on the cover for Bedknobs and Beanstalks too, and again, I wasn't short of ideas. So I did my research on previous covers by each publisher concerned, put together a selection of "these I have loved", and ended up with something not just close to what I'd asked for, but also better than I could have envisioned, given my total lack of anything resembling art skills.

I think the problem with the latest one is that I know it's going to be on the same basic template as this:





*hopes Tis doesn't mind me appropriating her cover!*

I think Tis and the art department did a great job on her cover, but as you can see, the little shot glasses top and bottom kind of dictate the colour choices, unless you don't mind a clash – which I suppose if nothing else would be eye-catching!

And given that my usual colour choices can best be described with words such as "muted" and "subdued", or possibly "'ere! Who switched the lights off?" I'm having to make a few mental adjustments for this one!

*repeats to self: covers are SUPPOSED to be eye-catching* ;)

Hurrah! Torquere have accepted A Wish Too Far, the third story in my series about Rael the succubus and his lawman lover Lars, who first appeared in The Care and Feeding of Demons. It's novella length, and features a cross-dressing demon with a grudge against humanity and Rael going undercover in a very sexy red dress! I don't have a release date for it yet, but just to remind you, the second novella in the series will be out as a Torquere Single Shot in August. Here's a snippet from that one:

Two bits of squee to report: Rael the sex demon (about whom I've posted before, with an excerpt here) is now available in e-book: the Torquere anthology The Care and Feeding of Demons was released yesterday! :D

As well as Rael's story, you can find contributions by fantastic authors such as Kiernan Kelly, Sean Michael, Julia Talbot and Kate Roman! *bounces*

And I'm thrilled to announce that another demon story of mine is to be published by Dreamspinner! It's a very different sort of story than Rael's, although equally dear to my heart, and is currently titled Angel. But, heh, based on recent luck you can expect that to change a few times before it comes out... ;D
