We are utterly delighted to bring you the simply gorgeous cover art that will adorn BROKEN by A E Rought, coming in January 2013. The incomparably talented Steven Wood is behind this lovely creation.

You’ve now seen four out of the five covers for the books we are releasing in 2012.
As a special treat, we’re thrilled to showcase the fifth. This is for Katya’s World by Jonathan L Howard and we would LOVE to hear your thoughts!

What does this cover say to you?
After you seemed so appreciative of the little tasters we gave you of the Blackwood and Shift cover art as it progressed, we thought that we would do the same with POLTERGEEKS (coming in October, written by Sean Cummings).
We have asked the artist to do some funky stuff with the background to the piece and obviously there is no lettering on it at all – but meet Julie, the main character. Julie is a sassy teen witch, embroiled in a life and death showdown with a Dark Power, and we are thrilled to see that the artist (which is one Paul Young) has captured Julie’s look of determination brilliantly.
Also? Julie is a jeans and t-shirt gal, and we’re proud to show her in such!
Well? What do you think?
Helloooooo! Well, it’s all go here at the Strange Chemistry Lab! We’re whipping up cover art and proofs like there is no tomorrow…
And we’ve had back a very first glimpse of the SHIFT cover art, so we thought we’d let you have a quick look. Are we not great to you?

This, for us, is one of the most exciting parts of getting a book ready for publication – commissioning and then revealing awesome cover art for the books we’re publishing.
So…drum roll, please! Our first cover is for BLACKWOOD by Gwenda Bond. As you can see it is currently unadorned, so it isn’t quite final but we just couldn’t wait to give you a tease of what it will look like on the shelves.
Here is the book blurb for you again:
On Roanoke Island, the legend of the 114 people who mysteriously vanished from the Lost Colony hundreds of years ago is just an outdoor drama for the tourists, a story people tell. But when the island faces the sudden disappearance of 114 people now, an unlikely pair of 17-year-olds may be the only hope of bringing them back.
Miranda, a misfit girl from the island’s most infamous family, and Phillips, an exiled teen criminal who hears the voices of the dead, must dodge everyone from federal agents to long-dead alchemists as they work to uncover the secrets of the new Lost Colony. The one thing they can’t dodge is each other.
The artwork is by Steven Wood.
Well, what do you think?
