New cover for 'Ghosts of the Asylum'

At right is the new cover for my fantasy novel, Ghosts of the Asylum. I won't suggest it's a perfect cover, but I do believe it is quite the improvement over the old one.

This cover should be appearing on the e-book versions within the next 24 hours. Also, a print version of this novel is planned to be available in the coming months, and of course will feature the new cover.

Why did I change the cover now? Because in the coming months I will be releasing my novel The Company of Seven, which is the third book in The Horrors of Bond Trilogy. Though I have not labeled them as such until now, Ghosts of the Asylum is the first book in that trilogy while Demon Chains is the second. I wanted new covers to tie together all three books, which means Demon Chains also will be getting a new coat of paint soon.

For those who don't care for trilogies, don't worry. Unlike my Kobalos Trilogy, each book in The Horrors of Bond Trilogy stands on its own. The reason I consider it a trilogy is because of somewhat related subject matter and thematic material. Most of the adventuring takes place in the city of Bond and involves my Kron Darkbow character as well as other names that will be familiar to those who read the Kobalos Trilogy; there are also plenty of new names, as well.

Good reasoning behind the cover change. I may have to do something similar down the line.

That's a badass new cover. I like the original one, but this one's much better.
