Re-Covering the Parted Veil Series

As the March 31st release day for Lovecraft's Pupil approaches, I'm also doing a lot of work on the first two books in the Parted Veil series, Courting the King in Yellow and Lovecraft's Curse.

When I originally published Courting the King in Yellow back in 2012, there was no Parted Veil series as of yet. I had plenty of ideas about what I wanted to do, but it was my first book, so I released it as a standalone.

With Lovecraft's Curse in 2013, I introduced an almost entirely new cast, and the story was written in a way that connected to Courting the King in Yellow, but did not require having read it to enjoy Lovecraft's Curse.

With Lovecraft's Pupil, the connection between the first two books in the series grow much stronger, and the casts of the two stories begin to interact more. That turned will continue in book four (which I've already drafted) as the story arc of the series becomes one in which all of the cast members of the previous books are involved.

I wanted to clearly identity Lovecraft's Pupil  of a series, and the cover was designed with that in mind:


After the new cover was finalized, my cover design magicians Jeff Rodgers and Mike Jackson of Kitbash Brand Design, went back and updated the first two covers to reflect the series as well:



For the print versions, the series branding is also on the spines of each book, and they look pretty darn cool sitting next to each other on a bookshelf.

So, one new book release, but three new covers. And with them, a firmly established series that I'll be continuing to build on for years to come.

LOVECRAFT'S PUPIL Arrives on 3/31! Check Out the Teaser Trailer!

I am very excited to announce that Lovecraft's Pupil, the third book in the Parted Veil series, will be releasing digitally on March 31st!

Here's a little teaser trailer I put together for the book:



Lovecraft's Pupil will be available digitally on Amazon (Kindle), Kobo (ePub) and Drive Thru Fiction (PDF, ePub and Kindle) for $3.99.

There will be a print version of Lovecraft's Pupil as well, and it should be available within a week or two of the digital versions (I'm in the proofing process now).

AND, to celebrate the release of Lovecraft's Pupil, I'll be dropping the price of Lovecraft's Curse to $2.99. So, you can grab Courting the King in Yellow ($0.99), Lovecraft's Curse ($2.99) and Lovecraft's Pupil ($3.99) for about $8. I think that's a pretty sweet deal, but then again I'm a bit biased.

Cover Reveal: LOVECRAFT'S PUPIL (The Parted Veil Series--Book Three)


Finally!

After talking about it for months on the podcast on on this very blog, I can finally reveal the cover for the latest book in the Parted Veil series, Lovecraft's Pupil. I am super pumped for this book, and I'm currently awaiting the print proof, which is on its way to me.

Jeff Rodgers and Mike Jackson, my friends over at Kitbash Brand Design, took my crazy ideas and made this cover a reality. As usual, what they are able to do surpasses my expectations. I love this cover.

Lovecraft's Pupil is the third book in the Parted Veil series, and is a direct sequel to Lovecraft's Curse. Within this book, readers will begin to discover how the cast and events of Courting the King in Yellow are connected to what is happening to our main character Fela Barton. Here's the back cover blurb:

SOME NIGHTMARES YOU CAN'T WAKE UP FROM 

Fela Barton is a Dreamer. As the great granddaughter of H.P. Lovecraft, Fela has the ability to travel between our waking world and the Dreamlands, a place of both wonders and horrors. But the more Fela learns about the family legacy, the more everyone around her becomes a target. 

With evil pursuing her across two worlds, is anywhere truly safe?

And speaking of back covers:


Awesome, right?

As far as a release date, I am tentatively planning on a March 31st release for both print and digital versions of the book. Lovecraft's Pupil will be available digitally through both Amazon (Kindle) and Drive Thru Fiction (PDF, Epub and Kindle), and a print version will also be available through Drive Thru Fiction.

I should also have an announcement pretty soon about a very cool art print that ties into Lovecraft's Pupil. You may remember the "Uguborth" print that was inspired by Lovecraft's Curse last year, which I still sell and give away at shows. Stay tuned for more on the new print.

In the meantime, check out that cover!
