Cover Reveal: That Ol’ Black Magic

That Ol Black Magic 680I’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?

    Exciting times, Silver. And fabulous that you have your very own cover artist who will listen to your vision and execute it with such style 🙂

    Happy writing!! (Today’s a work day for me – Boo)

    The Only did another fabulous job! Today is a work day for me too. Could happily stay in bed all day reading if allowed. Personally I think you did a good job with the blurb.

  3. Cool cover and neat blurb, Silver. Another book I can’t wait to read. You’re killin’ me here. =op


    Yard work, housework… I might sit down with my new colored pencils and design the landscaping in better than B&W. I really should do some editing, but I’m just not feeling it.

      You know…I do need beta readers….just sayin’…

      Can you believe the weather? It feels more like Sept. 15 or Oct. 15 than August 15th! Makes me want to go sit outside and work on the laptop but all the files I need are on the desktop. 😛

      • You know… you don’t even have to ask before you send me stuff… also, just sayin’.

        I’ll take this weather all day every day. I was joking with the Hubs that since Indian summer is hot weather in the fall, then this should be named something like Yugoslavian Autumn.

Got something to say?
