Cover Reveal for The Witch's Lair

First off let me wish everyone a Merry Christmas, I hope you are able to spend time with family and friends, as well as, take a much needed break. Here in the Farish household, little girl is busy defeating the Emperor's Spacewolf Titans with the Khorne Hordes of Duplo Chaos.
They fought well, but in the end Duplo animals proved to be a mighty foe. 
Overhead shot of shame. There will be other battles, and mercy will not be shown.
You'd think a two year old yelling “Blood for the blood god,” would be funny. Nope, more like being woken up by the eerie cackle of Chucky.

The lovely Dr. Farish, when she is not yelling at squirrels who are trying to eat her flowers, is still shooting down names for progeny number two. Jethro Farish is not going to happen.
I am disappointed Dr. Farish.
Mark Harmon was in tears over the decision, but then went back to counting his money, and smacking people on the back of their heads with a fury Little Rabbit Fru-Fru would envy. Leroy Jenkins was eating chicken and unavailable for comment. Secundus and Sanguineous have also been nixed. This is, of course, a temporary setback, I shall continue to craft the perfect name.

In addition to writing stories, working full time, and Reserve weekends, I am enrolled in AOC (Advanced Operations Course), which is essentially Colonel's School. It is a necessary course one must take to continue to advance in the Army, but it is heavy on understanding theory, operations support at the Division and above level, and of course, writing. So my fun reading has slowed quite a bit, and one of the reasons I am reluctant to agree to review books from new to me authors. It's not that I'm not interested, but for some reason my body insists I sleep every now and then. Stupid body.

So on to the news most of you care about, The Witch's Lair.
I have a cover. Done, with tag line and everything.
I even have an animated version. Sadly Twitter only allows images up to 5MB, and The Witch's Lair animated version is just a bit to big.
If you are impressed with the artwork and skill and want to be cool like me when it comes to your book cover or other illustrated needs, contact Danielle Fine at www.daniellefine.com

The actual text is with the editor undergoing line edits. Which means Valentine's day February 14th, 2016, it will be ready for readers. I am working on setting up pre-orders via Smashwords, and Amazon.

One might ask, “Lincoln, why are you releasing a dark, almost horror novel on Valentine's day when the protagonist is a celibate monk?”

My answer would be “Reasons."
You will have to read the book to understand, but when you do, the veil shall be lifted, meaning will become clear, and enlightenment will be yours.

If you have not read the first two books, Junior Inquisitor and Soulless Monk, I suggest you do so now. And if you could tell all of your friends to get copies as well, I would be able to quit my job and focus on entertaining you. Lastly, please leave a review. It helps others know what is good and what to avoid.

              Excerpt from The Witch's Lair #3 in the Inquisitor Series

“Sebastian,” whispered Brother Malachi, I hadn't heard him move up from behind me. “Have everyone collapse in on you. We need to move fast and prepare.”
“Fall in on me,” I radioed out and quickly I was surrounded by the remains of my team.

What is it?” asked Brother Tristan nervously looking back at the sound as it was louder and closer.

Bone spiders,” replied Brother Malachi.

OMG, not bone spiders! Anything but that! lol Love the new cover. I'm going to Danielle's site now to have a look-see. (My new novel will come out in March...if I can get a cover for it.) I can't imagine you finding better names than Jethro or Secundus. And take it from me, sleep is highly overrated. Have a great Christmas! :)

Farish's Freehold said...

Thank you Lexa. Bone spiders are nothing to laugh at, as you will see on Valentine's Day. Danielle does a great job with covers and illustrated excerpts, well worth the money. Jethro Farish has such a great ring to it. Sigh!
Hope your Christmas was great.

Looks terrific and terrifying! Can't wait for it!

It's hard to name a baby when you've used up all the good ones on your own characters. Have you considered: Malachi or Damian? Of course you could always go with something sweet like Michael, Jason, Freddy or Norman.

(I'm a little sad there's no emoji capability in the comments ;-))

Farish's Freehold said...

Thanks Janey. As for names, I will continue to work with the lovely Dr. Farish to get the perfect name. Meanwhile the quest continues.
