And I think it’s awesome. Another brilliant painting by Stephen Youll.
Brian Herbert and I have delivered the final manuscript. The novel comes out in February 2013. And in two weeks, I’ll be flying up to stay with Brian so we start the full-on brainstorming for MENTATS OF DUNE.
Kensington just sent me the wonderful new cover for my second Dan Shamble, Zombie PI novel, UNNATURAL ACTS. It really captures the fun of the series.
AFTERTASTE—the third installment of my humorous BLOOD LITE anthology series, under the auspices of the Horror Writers Association—has just been released in mass-market paperback from Pocket Books. Thirty all-new hilarious horror stories from Jim Butcher, Kelley Armstrong, Christopher Golden, Heather Graham, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and many others, including one of the last stories by LA Banks.
I just received my advance reading copies of DEATH WARMED OVER, the first novel in my Dan Shamble, Zombie PI series from Kensington. Now I’ve got zombies all over the kitchen counter.
SINGLE DEAD DETECTIVE SEEKS CLUE
It’s been an intense two months with a whirlwind of deadlines and appearances, and I’ve been stuck inside looking out at the beautiful weather (feeling like a kid with chicken pox not allowed to go out and play). But after I turned in two manuscripts, I blocked out part of a day and went on a hike in the Front Range, a spectacular trail to the Devil’s Head fire lookout, a high rock outcropping with a breathtaking view of the foothills, the Pike National Forest with rock formations to rival South Dakota’s Black Hills, and Pike’s Peak in the distance.
As Brian and I finish up the final read and polish of the manuscript of HELLHOLE AWAKENING (639 pages), we just received the remarkable cover sketch from Stephen Youll. Steve has done many of our covers for years—most of the Dune novels, HELLHOLE, my three Star Wars anthologies, and BLINDFOLD. After working with our editor Pat LoBrutto, Brian and I suggested this scene to Steve, gave him the draft manuscript, and let him visualize it.
We’re very pleased to show off the just-released cover for Clockwork Angels: The Novel—one of my most beautiful covers ever.
