Yes…. I can reveal the cover of the third and fourth book in the K’Barthan Trilogy. Yes I’m a writer but I never said I could count. If you want the honest truth, book 3 was so huge that it was never going to approach commercial viability as a paperback, so as it has two distinct halves, I divided it.
So here we are. Artwork. Mmm Mmm. Am I chuffed with this? Oh yes I am.
And here’s the blurb….
Confused ex outlaw, pardoned for all misdemeanours, seeks answers…
The Pan of Hamgee has a chance to go straight, but it’s been so long that he’s almost forgotten how. With a death warrant over his head he is released, given a State sponsored business, and a year’s amnesty for all misdemeanours while he adjusts.
He doesn’t have a year, though. In only five days Lord Vernon gains total power. Unless The Pan can stop him, K’Barth is doomed. The future hangs by a thread, and the only person who can fix it is The Pan: a man without a plan.
And here’s the back…
The snuff box posed a bit of a problem but the choice was pretty slim, not much call for pictures of snuff boxes. The back… well yes, I was extremely pleased with the back.
Looking For Trouble, K’Barthan Trilogy: Part 4
Cornered Hamgeean, with nowhere left to run, seeks time…
The time has finally come when The Pan must stand up and be counted. He must face his demons and rectify the chaos he has caused. He can stop Lord Vernon, and he’s going to, but with a three day wait, the timing is crucial.
To succeed he has to stay alive, a possibility if he keeps his head down and maintains a low profile. But that’s not an easy task for The Pan.
And here’s the back, which I’m insanely pleased with. Sans blurb at this stage.
So there you have it. Book 3 will be out in April and depending on how the editing and beta reading goes, book 4 will be out at the end of April or in May.
This completely excellent cover art has been done by A Trouble Halved, who are ace and can be found here.
As ever I am intrigued to know what you think…
