Today sees the grand unveiling of the US cover of Seven Devils! Out next August through DAW Books (& Gollancz in the UK–stay tuned for that cover reveal to come!).
US Cover Copy:
When Eris faked her death, she thought she had left her old life as the heir to the galaxy’s most ruthless empire behind. But her recruitment by the Novantaen Resistance, an organization opposed to the empire’s voracious expansion, throws her right back into the fray.
Eris has been assigned a new mission: to infiltrate a spaceship ferrying deadly cargo and return the intelligence gathered to the Resistance. But her partner for the mission, mechanic and hotshot pilot Cloelia, bears an old grudge against Eris, making an already difficult infiltration even more complicated.
When they find the ship, they discover more than they bargained for: three fugitives with firsthand knowledge of the corrupt empire’s inner workings.
Together, these women possess the knowledge and capabilities to bring the empire to its knees. But the clock is ticking: the new heir to the empire plans to disrupt a peace summit with the only remaining alien empire, ensuring the empire’s continued expansion. If they can find a way to stop him, they will save the galaxy. If they can’t, millions may die.
I love the art by Dan Dos Santos so much (the design is by Katie Anderson). Betsy Wollheim, our lead editor, asked us what artists we liked. I threw out Dan’s name as a pipe dream, because I’ve admired his work for years. It’s so cool to actually have a cover by him! There are so many wonderful little details that tie into the characters. Feeling very lucky today. Publishing can be so up and down, so gotta celebrate the ups. This is definitely one of them.
Sneaky reminder that it is available for pre-order. Doing so helps the publisher know there’s interest in the book, and I learned this week that pre-orders at US indie stories count towards things like the NYT list. The US release is my birthday (August 4th)! Your support is so appreciated.
Here are the pre-order links that seem to be live so far:
