Today I bought stock art for the Firebrand cover and started messing around with it. Here’s a sneak preview:
Yes, it’s a headless woman, but since the book actually does involve the heroine complaining at one point that getting skirts up is easier than getting trousers down and that bustles just make everything more complicated still, I figure I’m justified. (Kadia: not your blushing ‘oh, my, what is this inexplicable tingle I fell down there, kind sir?’ kind of heroine)
In other news, I am slightly boggled that the first two books are still selling at a steady drip-feed despite having been out since 2010, and also entertained by my own reaction to the sales page whenever I remember to go and look at it. I’m always much happier when someone buys a copy of The Hawkwood War than I am when someone buys a The Maker’s Mask, because I figure anyone might take a chance on the first book but they wouldn’t buy the second unless they actually wanted the rest of the story.
