A Couple Of Covers That Caught My Eye

Devon Monk showed off her newest cover this week.  Tin Swift if the second installment in her steampunk series, Age of Steam.  The cover is pretty neat.

No blurb yet, but here is what Devon says about the cover:

The artist is Cliff Nielsen, and I think he’s done a fabulous job of capturing the speed and movement of the book.  TIN SWIFT reads fast, and is filled with action, adventure, danger, and humor. (Yes, there’s still darkness in it, like DEAD IRON, but the book carries a lighter, faster sort of feeling.)  There’s also new characters introduced, and of course, Cedar Hunt, Mae Lindson, Rose Small, Wil, and the Madder brothers feature in this book too.

That ship on the cover?  That’s the SWIFT.  She’s a beauty, and one of the fastest glim harvesting airships in the western sky.  I’m so happy the artist and art department decided to put Cedar, that big ol’ gun, and the SWIFT on the cover!

Tin Swift is due to hit stores July 2012.

This week I also found the cover for second book of the series I am reading now.  Demon’s Bride is the second book in Zoe Archer’s The Hellraisers series.  It’s Leo’s book and I am liking Leo’s character in Devil’s Kiss.

Leo Bailey may have been born to poverty, but ruthless business sense and sparkling intelligence have made money worries a thing of his past. It doesn’t hurt that the Devil himself has granted Leo the ability to read the future.

But even infallible predictions are a déclassé commoner’s trick to some members of the ton. They’ll never see Leo as their equal—one good reason to prove himself their better. And a noble marriage is an obvious start.

Bookish Anne Hartfield, daughter of a baron, is hardly the flashiest miss on the marriage market. But her thoughtful reserve complements Leo’s brash boldness in an attraction neither can deny. A whirlwind courtship sweeps Anne and Leo into a smoldering marriage before either can believe their luck. But happiness built on Leo’s dark powers can’t last. Soon, Anne will have to save her husband…or lose her heart…

Demon’s Bride is due out May 1st 2012.

Happy Weekend!
