I’ve been keeping The Only busy of late, what with CAFE MIDNIGHT’S cover and now with the cover for THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC. With her help, we’ve come up with what I think is a very cool look/brand for the Penumbra Papers. FYI, the background photo is one The Only took while we were in NOLA. She worked her magic on the image of crypts at St. Louis Cemetary #1, which is the setting for several scenes in THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC. If you check the word counter on the right, you’ll see that I’m closing in The End. 😀
In the meantime, here’s the TOBM blurb:
Along with her FBI partner—and best friend—Caleb Jones, Special Agent Sade Marquis is sent to New Orleans to investigate the murders of several high-ranking magicks. The Big Easy is neutral territory and Sade must find and arrest the culprit before war breaks out between the Realms. Things look up when the gargoyle Sentinel, Roman, a permanent fixture in Sade’s childhood, arrives to keep the peace. Maybe.
The investigation is hampered by Sade’s faerie nemesis, Ariel—the King’s Seducer. Oh, and then there’s the new dragon in town, Nikolas Constantine. Sade can’t decide whether to arrest his ass or admire it.
When guilt and innocence come to play in the French Quarter, it’ll take Sade’s brand of crazy to sort it all out.
Yeah, I know. It needs work. I suck at blurbs. Tomorrow is the last installment of my Bucket List. Yeah, yeah. I hear those sighs of relief. 😉 I’m writing today. What are the rest of you up to?
