First there were copyedits. Then there were page proofs. Then there was silence.
Now. Now, there is. A cover.
*pauses for the appropriate amount of anticipation*
Thank you to the team at Tor for putting this together, especially my editor Diana Pho for helping find the perfect model, and Larry Rostant for its creation.
And now back to your regularly scheduled excitement. Those fingers! That leapage! The red!
Fun fact: I specifically requested red because of Plot Reasons (not blood, jeez guys) and I am very very pleased with how that turned out.
Also fun fact: One of my original ideas was to have the main character, Amastan, sitting with a bunch of scrolls, which somehow I thought would be very engaging. Ahah. Ahah. Ahaha.
And that, my friends, is why I’m not in Marketing.
What do you think? Eye-grabbing? Face-stabbing?
If you like murder! and sand in your teeth! and archival searches!, you can pre-order The Perfect Assassin – the story of a historian turned assassin turned detective who is really tired of this shit – over at the usual suspects. Some early readers have said it’s okay, they guess. And there will be a book two! And a book three! And book three has definitely made some people cry, so you know that means it’s great.
March 2019, guys! That’s like, eight months and change! Less than a pregnancy away!
