Grim Tides Cover Art

The week in Los Angeles was a rousing success. I wrote 42,000 words in six days. I’m not sure if that’s a personal record or not, but it’s definitely up there. (I didn’t write on Saturday during the train ride home, confining myself to reading and watching cartoons and staring at the passing scenery. I needed a break.) Jenn Reese and Chris East are the best hosts ever.

But enough about the next novel! Let’s talk about the last novel!

I just got the artwork for my Marla Mason novel Grim Tides, painted by Lindsey Look. This image will appear on the cover of the print version, and the audio versions from Audible (I think), and the e-book version, once I get some text on it. It’ll likely be on the bookmarks too.

  1. That is just gorgeous, dude.

    Absolutely gorgeous, I agree. Now, I would love to know when the print version will be available. I’m dying to get it…

    I don’t have an exact date yet, Jose, but I expect the print edition to be ready in a couple of months.

    Rock freaking on! 😀 Loved the ebook; looking forward to the print and audio; yes, I’m a Marla Mason completist.

    I would be a Tim Pratt completist, but there’re all those pesky sekrit projeks that you don’t tell us all the deets about. . . . 😉

    Looks great. But I kinda miss the cloak 🙂

    Kendall: It’ll give you something to look forward to after I’m dead and all my secrets come out! You could buy every book published in English, just to be safe.

    Von: I miss the cloak, too. I considered giving her another cloak, but in Hawaii, the traditional cloaks would be feathered, and I just don’t see Marla pulling that off…

    Thanks for the info, Tim. I’ll count the seconds. I hope it will be available via Amazon…

    I think it should be, Jose. Broken Mirrors is, and it’s the same publisher.

  9. Kendall Kendall

    LOL, my basement attests to the fact that I’m well on my way to buying everything in English.

  10. I was browsing B&N tonight, blah, blah, blah and then holy crap! Venom in Her Veins! You must have made some blood sacrifice to the cover gods. And now this one as well.

    Bars of scented soap, you’re offering up bars of scented soap, right?

    It is a ridiculously good cover. I’ve been lucky my whole career. Never a bad cover — at worst an unremarkable one.

    You wouldn’t like what the bars smell like.
