Cover Art: Web of Lies by Jennifer Estep

Cover Art: Web of Lies by Jennifer Estep

January 7, 2010 Cover Art Coverage 2

Jennifer Estep ( who will be here later this month for an interview and giveaway) unveiled the cover art for the 2nd book in her new Elemental Assassin series: Web of Lies today on her site.  Check out the rune on her palm.  I’m with Jennifer, well, maybe I like it even more than Spider’s Bite. This is not the final cover, although I don’t think that it will change too much from what you see here. Once again, kudos go out to the awesome Tony Mauro, who’s the artist (he also did the fantastic cover for Spider’s Bite). I… Read more »

I finally carved out some time to read Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews (my review will be up next week).  I was just talking with Rebecca from DirtySexyBooks about how as bloggers we… Read more »

Throwdown Thursday is a weekly thing where we tackle books with similar characters, covers, themes, etc. to determine which one rocks more. And it is up to YOU to determine the winner! Last weeks Throwdown asked: Vampire Santa or Jolly St. Nick? The verdict by split decision was Vampire Santa.  It appears that most of you think Santa is on an all liquid diet. I know that many people have been eager to get their hands on an eReader  for awhile now.  Maybe some of you got one for Christmas? Or maybe you were an early adopter and have been… Read more »
