Cover Lover – 5 New Titles

After a bit of what can only be called a dry spell, a few new covers have started trickling out (I imagine things will pick up after Christmas is out of the way). This first one is from Amanda Ashley. Night’s Surrender is part of the Children of the Night series, and it is due out on August 25th.

There you have it for today. I swear, one day I am going to pick up the Galenorn books just for the pretty covers. Her entire Otherworld series has great artwork, and this spin-off series does, too. I wish all series could look that good.

Cover Lover – 3 New Titles

I have gotten all of the new release pages updated to include the most recent cover art and blurbs, but of course in the process I noticed that yes – there seems to have been a bunch of release date shifts and push backs. Again. Sooo, looks like it is time to do a double check, and hopefully that will be done in the next couple of days. I mean, really, what is the point of setting a release date and then shifting it around by a week or two? That is just annoying.

Rant over. There are three covers for today’s post, and this first one is from the second book in the new Robin D. Owens series, Ghost Seer. Ghost Layer is due out on the popular September 2nd.

Cover Lover – 6 New Titles

I haven’t been posting that many covers lately (at least, compared to what I used to). The thing is, it just seems like the last few months have been blah for cover releases – not much that jumps out at me, no big titles that I just can’t wait to get my hands on. Hopefully that turns around soon, but for this post I did find six newbies to show you.

I am obsessively trying to find the Divergent footage that was shown at Comic Con, or a teaser trailer, or something. But so far, all I found Veronica Roth related was the cover for the first of four e-novellas that will feature Four/Tobias. The Transfer will be released on September 3rd.

the transferC.C. Hunter starts a spin-off of her Shadow Falls series called Shadow Falls: After Dark next April with the release of Reborn.

rebornI admit, I tried a couple of Amanda Ashley books back when I first started to read PNR, and for some reason they just weren’t for me. Her next Children of the Night book, Night’s Promise, will be released on February 4th.

gilded heartsCynthia Eden is a favorite of mine, so anytime I see something new from her I am happy. This one is the cover for the first book in her new Phoenix series, called Phoenix Fire. Burn for Me will be released on January 28th.

burn for meAnd this final one gets my “Oh-crap-back-away-from-the-Photoshop” award for awkward cover of the week (maybe month). The second book in Kate Douglas‘s new Spirit Wolf series, Dark Moon, will be out on February 1st.

dark moonSo, likes or dislikes? Any favorites among this pile? Do you find the Dark Moon cover as oddly put together as I do, or am I just seeing things?

Cover Lover – 3 New Titles

Raiding Goodreads paid off again, and I have three new covers to show for it. I can actually say that I like all three of these, too, which is a rarity. This first one is from the prolific Amanda Ashley, and it appears to be from a new series called Children of the Night. Night’s Mistress is due out on August 6th.

Kris DeLake‘s next Assassin’s Guild book, A Spy to Die For, will be hitting the shelves on July 2nd.

My favorite from this batch is Falling Blind.  I was hoping that this would be Grace and…damn, can’t remember his name.  Tor?  Something like that.  Anyways, I was hoping that this was their story, but Shannon is good about building up a story over the course of a couple of books.  Which one are you most looking forward to?

Cover Lover – 11 New Titles

As I said in my last post, there were a couple of covers I came across on my latest updating spree, both for young adult and adult titles.  Some are new, some are just new to me.  The first one is from Sandra Hill and her Deadly Angels series.  Book two, Kiss of Surrender, will be released on September 25th.

Almost done.  This one is from Heather Burch and her Halflings series.  Guardian is due out this October.

The last one from this batch is one I have seen before.  Man, not sure on the dude’s outfit – at all.  Revelation is the first book in a new series from Erica Hayes, due out on October 2nd.

Cover Lover – 7 New Titles

I wasn’t expecting to find many covers on today’s hunt, so I was pleasantly surprised to come up with 7.  It seems to have been a bit of a dry spell lately, but hopefully there will be some new release info coming out soon, too.
