AWESOME! The one and only Dan Dos Santos does it again. I absolutely LOVE this cover. I think that this is the official cover art for Black Blade Blues, which is a new urban fantasy series from author J. A. Pitts. The second book, Honeyed Words, will be released in July 2011, followed by Hearth & Home in July 2012. Black Blade Blues is scheduled to be released on April 27, 2010. I love the premise and will definitely add this to my must read list.
Synopsis (Product Description):
Sarah Beauhall has more on her plate than most twenty-somethings: day job as a blacksmith, night job as a props manager for a low-budget movie, and her free time is spent fighting in a medieval re-enactment group.
When the lead actor breaks Sarah’s favorite one-of-a-kind sword, it sends the director into fits. Sarah agrees to repair the blade to avoid reshooting scenes.
One of the extras claims to be a dwarf and offers to help her at the forge. That’s when things start to get weird. Could the sword really be magic, as he claims? Why does he want her to kill a Portland investment banker? And what is it about that homeless guy that has her on edge?
As if things weren’t surreal enough at that point, Sarah’s girlfriend Katie breaks out the dreaded phrase… “I love you.”
Black Blade Blues is about forging an existence in a world that is much different than one expects.
Oh, and dragons.
