Cover Reveal for Upcoming Release!


I just signed a contract with Fireborn Publishing for a new release, a scifi short story entitled The Last Amanuensis. Normally, Fireborn uses stock covers for short fiction, but I convinced them to let me create my own cover. I thought you might like to see the result.

Not as good as Willsin's covers, but I'm getting better at this...!

Here's the blurb. The book will release in May.

Poetry is like blood – you can’t hold it back.

The Emperor has decreed that Reason will rule in his lands. Art and literature are banned in favor of military technology. The fearsome Preceptors prowl the capitol, arresting anyone who dares, even secretly, to engage in forbidden activities.

A former teacher and frustrated writer, Adele is grateful for her job as secretary to the enigmatic Professor. During the day, she transcribes his learned treatises on a vast range of topics. Then he calls her to his room one night, to give her a more difficult and intimate assignment, one that risks both their lives.

Not familiar with Fireborn Publishing... congrats on the contract Lisabet!

Hi, Colleen,

Fireborn Publishing is a new publisher. However, the people behind the company have been in the business since the dawn of the epublishing revolution (if not before). Do you know the name Brenna Lyons? She's the CEO. She has something like 300 books to her credit, and really knows the profession.
