Today's the big day! The cover is here, AND my book is now available for PRE-ORDER!!!!
I am terribly excited to bring it to you. Right now, The Huntsman and the Vampire is available in three formats: Kindle eBook, Paperback, and Hardback. Pre-ordering now will ensure that you get your copy on the launch day, which is February 12 - just in time for St. Valentines Day! A most appropriate day to give someone a rose (a Hunter's Rose), I believe.
With all that out of the way, let's get to the cover. No spoiler space this week. The book is already publicly available on Amazon HERE.
So without further ado, here it is:
The subject of the sequel is vampires and their lore in Celandine Valley. If you read the first book, then you'll remember that some Unhallowed creatures have a particular animal associated with them:
Werewolves - Wolves
Dwarves - Spiders
Sorceresses - Hounds
Warlocks - Snakes
Vampires - Ravens
Thus, a giant raven graces the cover of Book 2. Ravens also appeared at the beginning of The Huntsman and the She-Wolf, but now they will be featured much more prominently.
I'd like to take a moment to thank a few people. First, everyone who was in my beta-reading group. This book came along much more easily than the last one thanks to all your hard work. Next, I want to give a shout-out to my editor, Stephanie Eding. You were fantastic! Also, I must credit Eight Little Pages for the cover an layout. Their work is fabulous, and made even more amazing given the personal hardships they have faced. I really appreciate all you have done Claire and Chris, especially you, Claire. Finally, I want to say thank you to all my friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, and students who have encouraged me and supported me through this. There are times I've been tempted to take a break or put off writing for other things. You've kept me on track, and that has made all the difference.
Thanks to one and all for your support. I'm glad I have a chance to bring you this sequel and continue the story of Tristan DeSavoie. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I've enjoyed writing it.
