Cover Lover – 13 New Titles

While doing my recent updating of the New Release pages, I came across a few covers I hadn’t gotten my hands on before. They might have been floating around for a while and I just missed them, but they are new to me, anyways. We start this batch with Lisa Shearin‘s The Grendel Affair. It is the first book of her SPI Files series, which will be released on December 31st.

I gave up the Feral Warriors series by Pamela Palmer a while back, but it looks like things keep rolling on. Wulfe Untamed will be released January 28th.

For some reason, however, there was a new version done which is just as great. The first book of a trilogy, Burning Sky will be released on September 17th.

I know The Burning Sky cover (both of them, actually) really grabbed me, and I spent a good while trying to figure out what sort of dance move Nick is trying to pull off on the Illusion cover. No way that looks comfortable. I am not a big fan of the Grendel Affair cover for some reason, and the embossing on the Compelled cover just doesn’t work for me, but other than that I have to say this is a decent pile of covers.

  1. Your blog is killer on my wallet. I swear, evertime I get a little message in my reader about a new post, I have to hold myself back from running to the bookstore.

    • God, ain’t it the truth. I have been good lately and cut back a lot of the impulse buying, but there are still just so many to buy…

  2. I know this has been mentioned before, but why are the majority of the young adult covers soo much more appealing and attractive than the adult covers? I don’t understand. And it’s a consistent thing!

    • I have wondered that myself sometimes. A great, well established author (coughKresleyColecough) gets a meh cover, and a debut young adult author gets a beautiful, eye catching one. Doesn’t make sense sometimes at all.

  3. If only we were running the book publishing industry. There’d be some changes a happenin.
    Publishing dates- no releases on major holidays or during a period when they’d get buried
    Book covers – too much to write.

    • My nit-pick would be firm release dates, too – no shifting titles around all the time and pushing back for months, along with having all cover art held to a certain standard.
