Hello Droogs,

As per usual, I’m putting out some NEVERNIGHT desktop images in case you folks wanted to decorate your phones or tablets with the awesome stabbiness that is this cover. I’m also including the original Jason Chan artwork without the amazeballs typography, just in case your life is amazeballs enough already.

(The cat made of shadows you can see on the left hand side will appear on the spine of the book, and be explained in the pages. But he’s not really a cat at all.)

You can pre-order NEVERNIGHT at the following links:

Amazon/Barnes&Noble/Indiebound/Powells/Book Depository

And remember, the cover pimp competition runs until 10 February. Big scary hugs to everyone who’s already helped to spread the word.

Right click to embiggen the images, then save to your heart’s content.

NEVERNIGHT cover reveal!

Mobile phones off, please.

Hello droogs!

I’m very chuffed to be presenting the cover reveal for my new fantasy series, NEVERNIGHT, with the help of some amazing friends and their blogs 🙂

As per usual, I’ll be giving away some phat lewts, so read on after the links!

First, what the hell is this book about:

The first in an epic new fantasy series from the New York Times bestselling author.

In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

Now, a sixteen year old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic — the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with the Church’s halls, and to fail is to die. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the only thing she desires.


That’s it in a nutshell. The elevator pitch to my editor was “Harry Potter meets the Lies of Locke Lamora.”
