Cool new cover art: J.M. Bray

Please welcome my friend J.M. Bray, to reveal the cover for his cool new romantic fantasy MENDING THE SHROUD ~ book 2 in the Shroud Trilogy, releasing in July.

The first book is called TEARING THE SHROUD - cool creepy title, yeah?

Without further ado...

(Erica jumps in: this is very cool. Simple, nice colours with the neon swirl behind the title. Aaand hot, in an understated, come-hither kind of way. I like the feather - intriguing, raises questions. And the dude's eyes say, 'I may be pretty, but I'll still kick your butt.'

Oh, yeah. And bless the day for a paranormal/fantasy cover that features 1) no full moon, furry animal or woman with improbably bare midriff; and 2) NO POINTLESS TATTOOS. What do you think?)

Here's what J.M. says:

The exciting sequel to Tearing the Shroud is coming July 1, 2014 and here's the cover! Once again Escape Publishing did an amazing job on the artwork and tying the two books together visually. JM is hard at work on the third book, so keep a lookout for it.

When you’ve learned to take possession in stride, love should be easy. Right? It might be if your life and the lives of people you loved weren’t threatened by an invasion of monsters. 

Vincent thought saving the world once was a challenge, he didn’t figure on retribution putting a price on his head. It means college takes a back seat again as he’s possessed by Coleman to fight a new battle with the Kafla. But this time he’s not alone, Jule, the woman he loves is also is possessed.

Together they hope to stave off the invasion and take the fight to the Realm, where only a supreme sacrifice can Mend the Shroud and save their worlds.

Thanks, J.M. :) so what do you guys think? You a fan of fantasy/romance, featuring stuff other than vamps and weres? A fellow member of the 'we're so over tattoos on book covers' club?


  1. Hi ya Erica. Thanks so much for having me over for a little reveal. I love what Escape did with the design, and agree, the arrow feather gives a great hint of whats to come! I'm shooting for a bare-stomached, mid-change werwolf gal with lots of tats howling under a full moon on the next one. :-)p

    1. Sounds awesome :) don't forget the 'tramp stamp'
