Cover!

I finally have permission to post the cover for ETERNAL KISS OF DARKNESS, releasing July 27th, 2010. Since I first saw the cover a couple months ago, I’ve been itching to show it off. I’m very happy with how it turned out. Some of my favorite things are the green in Mencheres’s eyes and how his hand is curled around Kira’s. Also what the .jpg doesn’t show, but you’ll see once the book is out, is that the entire cover has a sheen on the front, so in the light, it flashes a faint, hazy silver. SO pretty! The stepback is still being tweaked. I’ll post that once it’s ready.

Since everyone always asks, no, these models aren’t exactly how I picture Mencheres and Kira. In my head the best representation I could give would be Oded Fehr for Mencheres (but with longer hair than in that photo) and Milla Jovovich for Kira. But oddly enough, those two weren’t available to pose for the cover, lol. So I think my art director did a great job with finding replacements :D .

I like the girl cover model, but not big on the guy. Looks too young and I am all for a hottie like Oded! Couldn't he have a bit more scruff at least?

Will pimp your cover on my blog this week :)

Oh, Oded would have been perfect! I sent pics of him to my art director, lol. But I'm happy with the guy. He does look a little young but I've had several readers under the mistaken idea that Mencheres looks like an old man because Bones calls him "grandsire". So hoping this helps dispell that incorrect idea :).

Like the model for Kira, too. She has the stance and build I pictured for her character, but Kira's hair is lighter and shorter (see Milla pic again).

I'm amused by your mention of Oded because I've always pictured Mencheres looking like him.

I like the cover but the male model reminds me a lot of Brad Pitt as Louis in Interview with the Vampire movie.

Verrry pretty coverart, subtle but sexy. ;)

Slightly random but: since there are already novels about Mencheres and Spade I was curious to know if there is also one for Ian in the planning? I loved his character in the novels and would love to see more of him. ^^

This cover is so nice! But I must say, you pick for Mencheres is eerily close to how I pictured him. But then again, I guess it means I got the right imagination to piece together what you described in your books XD

I can't wait to read this one!
