So it’s not the best image, but it’s proof that The Venusian Gambit is a real thing that’s happening. The image you see up on IndieBound, BAM, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, etc. (or not, depending on the vendor) is a placeholder, and doesn’t at all reflect what we have in mind for the cover, aside from this header.
What, then, will the cover look like? It’s not done, but Lauren Saint Onge is once again knocking the ball way out of the park. I’ve seen sketches and I’ve had input, which has been fun. I can’t wait to show it to you guys. It’s insanely awesome.
In other news, the editors are now busy looking at the manuscript, and we should have it whipped into shape in short order. I like the way this one turned out, not only as a book, but also as the capstone to a series I’ve been writing since 2010. I’m already a little sad about leaving Shaila and Weatherby behind, but I think the book is a fitting conclusion. I told the story I wanted to tell, and that’s a really good feeling.
The Venusian Gambit is due out May 5.
