Sins of the Angels progress report

Let’s start with the good news. In the coming week I will be revealing the cover art for my next book, Sins of the Angels, along with the pre-order links for the e-book version. (Unfortunately, I don’t have the option to put the hardcover or paperback up for pre-order.)

I’m genuinely excited about this. The cover art looks absolutely stunning, and like a child at Christmas I’m just itching to show it off. However, there are still a few more tweaks to do on the cover design so that I can reveal the art and the full covers in one go, so I (and you) will have to wait just a little longer. This also gives adequate time for the pre-order links to go live.

Those paying attention will notice that all of this should have happened much earlier in the year. My initial plan was to release Sins on the same rough timetable as Orphans of the Dead last year, but a number of things conspired against me on that front.

The biggest, of course, was the pandemic. I’m far from alone in having my plans thrown out of whack by COVID-19, but it wasn’t just that. It was also necessary to change artists for the cover, and even though the first draft of the book was written before Orphans came out, the circumstances at hand meant that the editing process took a lot longer than expected.

Not that any of this is a bad thing, because I’m particularly proud of the finished product, and looking forward to releasing it.

Stay tuned for the reveal!

If you’ve not yet read Orphans of the Dead, the book prior to Sins of the Angels in this series, then you should have a look here and order it online.

You can also order From the Hill of Megiddo, the story of the apocalypse that occurred eighteen years prior to the series, online here.
