THE OFFICIAL “CAT WINTER” COVER REVEAL!

I love this cover so much that I couldn’t help giving a few sneak peeks over the last month, but this is it! The real, official, formal, no-more-holding-back COVER REVEAL for the next in the Cat Seasons Sci-Fantasy Tetralogy, CAT WINTER!

Cat Winter is the second book in the tetralogy, with Cat Autumn and Cat Spring yet to come. Each book follows a new clowder of sentient cats as they work to save the world from dangers untold. In Cat Summer, (2019 Fire Star Press) an ancient evil sent humanity to the brink of annihilation, but when our cat heroes vanquished that foe, an insidious inertia took hold, presenting the cats another hurdle to overcome. Cat Winter takes us on a new journey with a new set of characters. In the dark matter of space, a powerful anomaly has come into being, its single purpose: to devour the cosmos. Little does Claire know that the outcome balances on the small, black shoulders of her cat, Slayter.

Here is the back cover text:

Nine were chosen.

The task? Slip beyond time and help put right humanity’s wrongs.

Slayter, the obsidian feline, is one of the selected few.

But something has gone wrong. Humans are dying in mysterious ways that should not be possible in time-stall. In the dark matter of space, a powerful anomaly has come into being. It’s single purpose, to devour the cosmos.

Magical transformations, daring rescues, a journey through time and space. Will Slayter and his companions succeed in defeating the malevolence before the universe is gone forever?

When I told my cover designer Roslyn McFarland about the Cat Winter story and described what I had in mind, she came up with this design in no time flat. A little tweaking, and it is exactly what I envisioned! There is my hero Slayter, front and center, with his tabby fur-sister Emma and the ancient Siamese matriarch T’Paw to either side. There are the crystalline trees of time-stall. There are the stars in the winter sky, rising into the universe where the black hole anomaly dwells. It’s all present and beautifully done.

TA-DA!

Cat Winter in now in the last round of edits, so I will be choosing a publishing date soon. Should a story that begins in winter be released in winter? Or would summer be better, to cool you off with a snowy tale?
