I can't think of a better way to finish out the week than by officially revealing the cover of my next book, Dead Man's Deal. Released on May 7, Dead Man's Deal continues with Gage's story of fighting the Ivory Towers and trying to manage a normal relationship with an elf, while tattooing the populace of Low Town.
Would you like to see the cover?
Isn't that all kinds of awesome?!?! I really do love my covers.
Also, here's the cover copy for the book:
In a world where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires swim free in a sea of humanity, sometimes you need an edge. Looking for a little love? Need some luck? Desperate for revenge? Gage can give you what you need. The most talented tattoo artist in town, he knows the right symbol and the right mix of ingredients and ink to achieve your heart's desire. One tattoo is all it takes. But remember, everything has its price. . . .
Gage learned that lesson long ago, in ways he'd rather not remember. But the cruel and powerful wizards in the dreaded Ivory Towers he escaped aren't about to let him forget. Though Gage has managed to stay out of sight, he can't outrun the past forever.
The wizards know Gage is using forbidden magic, and they intend to punish him for his transgressions.
Too bad if innocent humans and monsters—entire cities—get in the way. They will quell a nascent magical uprising and Gage will be the sacrifice they need. First, though, they have to find him . . .
The book is available for pre-order and is even discounted at Amazon and Barnes & Noble right now.
Have a great weekend!
