Children of Artifice – Cover Reveal!

And here it is – the beautiful cover for Children of Artifice. Art by Sarah Anne Langton, novel published this summer by Fox Spirit Books.

Love how Sarah’s picked up on some of the alchemical/metallurgical themes of the story, and on the slightly decaying feel of the city itself. Really proud of this little book – it’s an urban fairy tale, a science fantasy, and it’s a very different beast to Ecko (less swearing, for a start) and to the hell-for-leather combat stuff that I normally write. And the story that weaves between the two central characters (forgive me blowing my own for a moment) is one of the single finest pieces of plotting that I’ve ever managed to contrive.

That – and there’s something really quite special about two people falling in love. Particularly when they’re really not meant to!

Synopsis on the Fox Spirit website – with special thanks to Kim Lakin-Smith and Tej Turner!
