Here they are! The brand new covers for The Witching Pen series. Scroll down to see them. You can also view the series as a whole HERE. These new covers will be on all eBook platforms from June 1st, and upload will begin store by store, from now.
The paperback versions will carry the same covers, but they will be uploaded after June 1st. The old paperbacks will go out of print before June.
The books have been re-edited, and new back matter has been inserted. When I say re-edited, what I mean is that one or two typos have been corrected in each book, and I've culled quite a few ellipses (...) because it seems I was ellipses-crazy when writing these books - lord knows why! But all authors' writing changes and improves over time - mine is no different.
However, that is ALL that's been edited. I have not changed the content or story in any way, no words except typos have been altered, nor have I have tampered with the style of writing at all. I wouldn't want to. This series is what it is, the first book written seven years ago without expectation, and the series has since garnered a strong and steady following who love it as it is - I wouldn't change that.
So, if you've just bought the old cover, don't sweat it, 'cause there's no change to the story. Make sure your Kindle or eReader is set to receive automatic updates to all eBooks, and the book should eventually update once the new covers have been released.
Thank you all so much :)
Cover Reveal for The Witching Pen series
The Witching Pen (book one): It's hard being the most powerful witch on the planet. It's even harder when you're a twenty-five year old virgin who'll lose all of that power the moment you sleep with someone ... that's why Elena's never slept with her best friend and flatmate, Karl, despite the true feelings they harbour for each other. But on discovery of a magic pen, Elena's life is about to get a whole lot worse...
The Sands of Time (book two): "Elizabeth" has no idea who she really is, Amy has gone missing without a trace, and Pueblo is going out of his mind trying to find the witch he accidentally bonded with. As he enlists the help of angels and demons alike, Elizabeth begins to remember... But what she uncovers may just have her wanting to turn away from who she really is ... for good.
The Demon Bride (book three): Mary has finally discovered who she really is, and what that means for the human race. What Mary doesn't know, is that Gwain has been searching for her for over ten thousand years, and had lost all hope of finding her. Now that he has her, he's faced with an impossible choice: does he save the woman who altered his very existence, or does he sacrifice her to save mankind?
The Last Dragon (book four): The Earth is in a state of shock after the apocalypse. Demons and fallen angels walk among humans, and everyone is trying to find their place in the new world - Morgan le Fey's world. But the fairy queen struggles with human emotions, Lucifer is keeping secrets, and Karl and Elena battle with their powers. The last Dragon is about to rise in this final instalment of The Witching Pen series.
Wilted (bonus short story prequel): Fifteen-year-old Elena hides her magical abilities from everyone, except her best friend, Karl. Inseparable since very young, they've always shared everything, including the darkest parts of their lives. Elena's beginning to realise her feelings for Karl are growing into something more. But her mother's about to drop a bombshell – one that will change the course of her life, and heart, forever.
Complete Series Boxed Set: Elena is the most powerful witch on the planet, Amy is hidden from her true self, and Mary feels the pain of mankind. On the appearance of a magic pen, three women uncover family secrets and deep betrayal, which may just lead to the end of the world. Unique, fun, fast-paced, sexy and passionate, this is paranormal romance that combines the dark with the light, and the sweet with the gritty.
These are the current covers above. I love them. I think they look sleek and professional, and if you're going to write a London-based PNR / Urban Fantasy set around October time ... well, grey's a great colour!
But it doesn't quite portray the sheer dynamism of the series to new readers who have never heard of it - they'll likely scroll right by - yet this series is just as adventurous as the Eye of the Storm series. So, The Witching Pen series is getting a facelift! The new covers have been designed and will be revealed in the next month. They're brighter; more colourful; still women-centric. They have more of an urban fantasy feel than any of the covers that have come before. I love them and can't wait to show you.
The paperback and the eBooks will share the same covers, and there'll be no light edition vs. dark edition going forward.
If you love the covers above and would like your paperbacks in these covers (whether light edition or dark edition) PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP, because once they're out of print, that's it - they're gone.
Here are the light editions below:
Boxed Set: The eBook boxed set will remain for sale, but will reflect the new covers.
Omnibus paperback: I'm bringing back the Omnibus Edition of The Witching Pen series, but this time, it will INCLUDE The Last Dragon so you have the whole series in one book, and it will be sold as a special edition hardback. Yes - a hardback! This will be my first hardback, so I'm thrilled to bits. The eBook changes will come first, followed by the paperback cover changes; the hardback will take a bit longer. I'll give you more solid dates once I have them.
This is quite a project in itself, so please bear with me. The back matter in all the books will also be updated, and the single volume paperbacks will go off-sale before the new paperback covers come in.
Look out for the cover reveal in a few weeks.
Blood Shadow is coming to your eReader in just 11 days! Check out THE BOOK'S PAGE for all pre-order links. And if you haven't been following the countdown on my Facebook page, go have a look - each day's countdown image contains a new three-line teaser.
There will also be a virtual signing for Blood Shadow, which will run from release day for two weeks only. MORE INFO HERE.
That's all for now. I'll see you on release day. The sun is finally out in England - enjoy the spring :)
