It’s here!!!!! Today, I’m sharing the new cover for Pocket Full of Tinder, the fourth book in my Noon Onyx series, which will release this December. Below are my thoughts on the cover, links to all of the wonderful bloggers who are participating in the cover reveal, information about the two giveaways I’m offering, and — of course — more information about the book. Please share and enjoy!! Thanks, everyone!!!
Noon Onyx is back! In this long-awaited fourth installment, Jill Archer returns readers to the dangerous world of Halja, where demons, angels, and humans coexist in an uneasy state of détente.
Maegester-in-Training Noon Onyx feels like she’s done it all – mastered fiery magic, become an adept fighter, learned the law, killed countless demons, and survived having her heart broken by both love and an arrow, but now she’ll face her greatest challenge yet…
Far to the north lies an outpost famous for its unrest – Rockthorn Gorge. The town’s patron has specifically requested Noon’s help. Her assignment? Help the neophyte demon lord build his fiefdom and keep what’s his. The problem? Lord Aristos – Noon’s new employer – is her erstwhile lover, Ari Carmine, the aforementioned heart breaker. And the number one thing he wants is her.
When Rockthorn Gorge’s viaduct is destroyed by Displodo, an enigmatic bomber, killing a dozen settlers and wounding scores more, Noon sets off early to aid in the search and rescue. Ari is listed among the missing and the suspects are legion. But Noon’s search is just the beginning. Her journey forces Noon to confront not only those she loves, but also enemies hell-bent on destroying them.
My Thoughts on the Cover
I hired Rebecca Frank to custom illustrate and design the cover of Pocket Full of Tinder for me. Rebecca’s a terrific artist, who’s been getting lots of attention lately. (Did you see her work in BookBub’s recent post “19 Fantastic Book Cover Design Resources“?) Because I’ve had three cover artists over the course of four books, I told Rebecca one of the most important things was to maintain a sense of continuity. She did a great job!
I love the clothing details (in particular, the burning leaf motif on the cloak clasp – Rebecca’s brilliant idea), the dark setting (Rockthorn Gorge at night), the fiery pop of the gun (a signal to readers to expect the unexpected), and Noon’s two-toned face and hair (a serendipitous foreshadowing of both character and story).
In all, a very satisfying addition to the series cover gallery, don’t you think?
