the cover art fairy

Well, I'm excited.

Is this hot or what? It's for SHADOWGLASS, book 2 in my Shadowfae Chronicles series. 

Fairiesmagic mirrors and mayhem. In Melbourne. You know you want to :)


Book 1, SHADOWFAE, is out 13 October 2009. You'll have to wait for April 2010 for this little yellow baby, though there's a sneak peek in the back of book 1.
Here's a blurb for SHADOWGLASS:
A seductive magic mirror, deep in a demon's lair. A simple warning: don't stare at the glass. A light-fingered fairy who can't resist.

For Ice, a compulsive fairy thief, life is a wild party of mayhem, fae trickery and magical confidence scams. She's never cared about rules or warnings, so when she filches a demon's beguiling magic mirror, she can't resist taking a peek.

Malicious enchantment strikes, and Ice can no longer tell a lie. If she can't undo the spell, she'll have to turn respectable. Two words: no way.

It sounds simple, especially when Indigo, a frosty metalfae thief, agrees to help her, as he too has fallen foul of the mirror's mischief. But when the mirror's victims start turning up dead, it seems someone doesn't want Ice or Indigo cured. As they draw closer to answers — and to each other — Indigo remains stubbornly silent about the nature of his enchantment. Is he the killer's target? Or does he harbour a more chilling secret?

Bwa-ha-ha-ha. I love this story. I love this cover. I'm all fulla love.

Right. Now I can get back to work.


  1. It's gorgeous, congrats! :)
    I've already added SHADOWFAE to my to-buy list.

    I can't wait!!! You're a tease!
    It's going to look so good on the shelves!

  3. I have to wait till 2010???
    Oooh it IS shiny! And reading that blurb, I don't wanna have to wait til 2010 either. Too cruel....wahhhh!

  4. Thanks Yolanda! I reckon the cover's awesome :) Can't wait to see what you think of the book!

  5. Re: I have to wait till 2010???
    Well, you made me wait until now for yours ;)

  6. Thanks :) So, can I enlist you to go around turning it face out on the shelves, then??

  7. Is it really in Melbourne, or did you just mention that for alliteration's sake? ;-)
    Also, because you made this a public post, I'll totally be pimping this soon :-)
    And I've had "Ice Ice Baby" in my head since reading the summary. For better or worse.

  8. It really is in Melbourne -- that's where the series happens. But the alliteration's nice too :)
    Pimp away! You are a gem. Sorry about the Vanilla Ice :) curses!

  9. Ooh, beautiful! I say it a lot, but I really think urban fantasy/paranormal books get the best cover art.

  10. I agree :) the artists really get to use their imagination.

  11. Is there likely to be an Amazon listing for this?

  12. I see the author's photo is as good as ever :)
    I am still not successful in getting sexy models to come and pose for my covers. I've got a cool, professional camera and everything. Maybe I should go into cover design :)

  13. Yep, eventually. I'll be sure to plaster it all over the Internet when it happens :)
    Urban fantasy and romance cover design is definitely a good gig. Lots of scantily clad babes of both genders :D

  14. OOOH showin' some fairy lovin', what could be better. LOVE the cover - love the sound of the book - Awesomeness Guru.

  15. Hey what's not to love - sexy chick in leather, Awesome colours and I think I like the scroll work better than the original butterfly - has class.

  16. Love it Erica!! Congrats.

  17. Aaaaw, that is such a purdy cover. The stuff inside is also looking interesting :-) but that purdy.....
