Vampire Empire: The Greyfriar

We have a cover!

This lovely work of art is by the talented Chris McGrath, best known for his work on Jim Butcher's Dresden Files. The layout is by Grace M. Conti-Zilsberger. And the whole thing was overseen by our editor (Hugo nominee) Lou Anders. We can't wait to see it staring out from bookstore shelves everywhere in November 2010.

Thanks, Chris, Grace, and Lou! Beautiful job.

We are so excited to see our hero and heroine, The Greyfriar and Adele, in the moody kirkyard of Greyfriars in Edinburgh. That's Edinburgh Castle looming in the background.

We were married in that very church and have many wedding photos in the same churchyard...none quite so foreboding as this cover shot though.

You can pre-order from Amazon:

I love the picture on the cover of this book. It was one of the first things that drew me to this wonderful new series. Gothic steam-punk! Love it.
