Cover and Book Description for 61 A.D.

Posted: August 10, 2011 in Uncategorized

Here is the final cover for 61 A.D.

And Thumbnail:

Here is a tentative book description. Let me know what you guys think:

Britannia, 61 A.D. For ten years, Taras has lived in the young city of Londinium, feeding off the city’s underbelly. But now Theron, his old enemy, has come looking for revenge, and Taras’ nights of living in relative peace are about to end.

Yet not even Theron can slip into town unnoticed, and the Council of Thirteen sends Ramah to deal with the two renegades once and for all. Unknown to the Council, a much older enemy is in Londinium, and this time even the great Ramah might not be safe.

Sound good? There is also the Iceni Rebellion. I am trying to figure out a good way to insert that into the book description. I’ll be working on that today, too.

Oh, and for those who are curious, the book will be released as an ebook on Monday, August 15. Yup. That’s next Monday. Finally. It will be priced at $2.99 on Kindle and Smashwords. The paperback version is still a month or so away, though.

It’s going to be a busy weekend at the McAfee house. 🙂

    David this is Sibyl’s sister, the one you met when I visited her and I red your first book draft. I think this book sounds like one I would buy and read. I can’t wait to get the copy of the one I read when you send it to me. I think you can go a long way with your books. Just keep writing and good luck.

      Hi Geneva! Nice to hear from you. 🙂 Saying Goodbye to the Sun (which you read when it was titled Chosen) is not available in print yet, but it will be. When it is, your copy is already reserved. 🙂

  2. JL Bryan says:

    You might chance “nights of living in relative peace” to “nights of peace” for simplicity.

    Also, remove comma from “much, older enemy” to make it “much older enemy.”

    The fianl cover looks great!

    Sounds good, David! I have been waiting for a long time for your sequel to “33 A.D.” to be written (as you know), and “61 A.D.” will go immediately to the top of the reading queue. Love the cover, by the way!

  4. Rex Jameson says:

    Just an echo of JL Bryan’s comments. The first is a stylistic thing, but the comma definitely should be removed.
