Once again I'm in debt to both Lin and Vivid Covers for the illustration and title work - awfully happy with this cover! :) I'm especially thrilled with the colour-scheme (well, that and Never's pose - actually, everything!).
To further celebrate the pending release of 'Never 4' I'll be offering a cover-art guessing game featuring the covers from the Never books very soon, an idea I recently saw over at the excellent Fantasy Literature site, so stay tuned :)
As we creep up on the October release of The Peaks of Autumn I thought I'd share a little more of the story - so here's chapters 2 and 3 :)
Here's another beautiful artwork from Louis Rakovich for the second, forthcoming Steampunk Fairy Tale Anthology that I (and other ace writers) are releasing soon.
Stay tuned for dates and teasers but for now - here's the cover, which I must say I LOVE :)
If you'd like to sample our respective styles, along with the balance of steam and fairy tale elements contained within, you could check out Volume I - which is free across many, many retailers :)

So! I've got some news to share about The Bone Mask Trilogy in the coming weeks but today I wanted to sneak a glimpse of Never #4 onto the blog!
If you're a newsletter subscriber you'll get to see a little more over the weekend when I send out the September newsletter, but for now, here's the unproofed, fairly short 'chapter 1' of Never #4 :)
