COVER REVEAL for THE BITCH

Hi folks,

Jon Bassoff, publisher of New Pulp Press, just sent me the cover for THE BITCH which comes out in January. I'm super-stoked! It's by Daniele Serra, an absolutely brilliant artist.


And... without further ado... here it is!



It will be released in January, 2014. This novel has a bit of a history. It was originally published by another press, and the owner of that press graciously allowed me back the rights to it. This will be a new read in several ways: There's a new foreword, written by Anthony Neil Smith, and a study guide for it, plus, of course, the new cover.

It garnered some awards, being named to the Goodreads list of  The 50 Best Noir Novels and it was a nominee for Spinetingler Magazine's Best Novel, Legends Category. It also won the Preditors&Editors Best Novel Award.

It also has some new blurbs by such folks as Anonymous 9 as well as the wonderful ones already given by such luminaries as Linwood Barclay and Allan Guthrie... in fact, a Who's Who lineup of authors who've liked it enough to furnish public praise.

I feel that along with THE RAPIST, it's my very best work.

I hope you'll consider glomming onto a copy when it comes out! This time, it will be issued in paperback as well as an ebook version.

Blue skies,
Les

I love the watercolor illustration. Organic and provocative. The title lettering looks like the default browser font.
