D.A. Adams New Brotherhood of Dwarves Series Novel: Cover Reveal


For Immediate Release
December 14, 2012

Seventh Star Press is proud to reveal the new cover art from Bonnie Wasson for the highly-anticipated Between Dark and Light, D.A. Adams’ fourth book in the acclaimed Brotherhood of Dwarves Series.  The editor for the new fantasy novel was Philip Hopkins, who handled the editing duties for the previous title in the series, The Fall of Dorkhun.

Between Dark and Light continues the adventures of the dwarf Roskin, and the stakes have never been greater.  The Great Empire has surrounded the Kiredurks and are preparing to conquer the kingdom, but unknown to them, Kwarck, the mysterious hermit of the plains, has his own plan in action. To the east, he has summoned an elven army and charged Crushaw with leading them into battle. To the south, Roskin will gather an army from the fractured Ghaldeon lands. But to the west, an ancient and powerful evil stirs. The Great War is about to errupt, if Roskin can overcome the Dark One…

The character-driven fantasy series which begins with The Brotherhood of Dwarves, and was continued with Red Sky at Dawn and The Fall of Dorkhun, has seen a steady growth in its international readership, becoming one of the best-selling franchises at Seventh Star Press.  Between Dark and Light will be released in eBook, softcover, and limited hardcover editions.

All editions will include interior illustrations from the award-winning Bonnie Wasson, whose cover art for the first book in the series, The Brotherhood of Dwarves, won the Artist Choice Award for Best Warrior at the 2012 Dragon*Con Art Show.

The eBook version will be available on Kindle and Nook in the coming week, followed by the softcover edition.  A pre-order window for the 75 copy limited hardcover will be announced shortly.

A blog tour in support of Between Dark and Light will be taking place in February/March of 2013.

Cover Art Reveal, Limited Hardcover Offer, and Blog Tour Announcement for H. David Blalock’s Traitor Angel!

For Immediate Release
October 18, 2012

Cover Art Reveal, Limited Hardcover Offer, and Blog Tour Announcement for H. David Blalock’s Traitor Angel!

Seventh Star Press is proud to unveil the cover art and illustrations created by Matthew Perry for Traitor Angel by H. David Blalock, the second book in the urban fantasy Angelkiller Triad.  Also being announced are the sites and dates for the book’s upcoming blog tour.  A pre-order window for a limited edition hardcover is now open in advance of Traitor Angel’s official release.

The latest title in the Angelkiller Triad follows 2011’s Angelkiller.  The war between The Army of Light and The Enemy continues behind the scenes. Unknown to the general population, the battle for control of humanity is heating up.

Jonah Mason, called Angelkiller, faces more than one decision. His Army resistance cell is wounded physically and emotionally, on the brink of falling apart. The mysterious allies calling themselves Knights are pressuring him to abandon his people. Meanwhile, the world outside draws closer to Armageddon.

As Mason and his friends pursue their campaign against Dorian Azrael’s global megacorporation, Andlat Enterprises, the stakes get higher with each desperate foray into the enemy’s computers. They are fated to lose one of their number and gain an unlikely ally, but any advantage they gain could be fleeting at best.

If they fail, it could mean the end of The Army and all resistance to the forces of Darkness.

The softcover and eBook versions will be released the week of Halloween!

Traitor Angel is now available for pre-order in a beautiful hardcover edition that is strictly limited to 75 copies.  The limited hardcover edition will be signed and numbered by H. David Blalock and includes a bonus illustration from Matthew Perry not included in other editions.

Cover and Art Reveal, Blog Tour Dates, and Hardcover Pre-Order for Michael West’s New Novel Spook House!

For Immediate Release

October 8, 2012

Cover Art Reveal, Limited Hardcover Offer, and Blog Tour Announcement for Michael West’s Spook House!

 

Seventh Star Press is proud to unveil the cover art and illustrations created by Matthew Perry for Spook House by Michael West, as well as announce sites and dates for the book’s upcoming blog tour.  A pre-order window for a limited edition hardcover is also open in advance of the book’s official release.

The latest Harmony, Indiana novel following 2011’s Cinema of Shadows arrives just in time for Halloween, exploring the places in this world that go far beyond any normal definition of “haunted.” These places are so evil, so diabolical, that they become gateways to Hell itself. The Fuller Farm is one such place.

One of the interior illustrations created by Matthew Perry featuring a creature from Spook House!

It is said that old man Fuller conducted unspeakable acts, blood rituals and human sacrifices, all in an attempt to gain the ultimate knowledge, the ultimate power. And then, he was killed–horribly murdered on his own lands, leaving the house to stand as a vacant monument to his wickedness. But once a door is opened, it can never really be closed.

Another interior illustration created by Matthew Perry for Spook House, featured in all versions of the book.

Now, the stars are right. The gateway is ready to once more unleash unspeakable horror upon the town of Harmony, Indiana. And this will be one Halloween that they will never forget!

The softcover and eBook versions will be released following the launch event for the novel at That Book Place in Madison, Indiana on October 27th.

Spook House is now available for pre-order in a beautiful hardcover edition that is strictly limited to 75 copies.  The limited hardcover edition will be signed and numbered by Michael West and includes a bonus illustration from Matthew Perry not included in other editions. It will be accompanied by an assortment of collectibles, including a set of glossy art cards and bookmarks. Those interested in securing one of the 75 copies can place a pre-order now at: http://www.seventhstarpress.com/pre-orders/
