LSDL cover final

January 15th 2010 update: Just got the page proofs and confirmation that LET SLEEPING DEMONS LIE will be a May 2010 Red Sage Presents release — yeeha!

It’s heeeeeere!

Just (literally!) got the cover final for my next Demons novella, LET SLEEPING DEMONS LIE.

I reckon that Tuesday (who is the same cover artist for Even Demons Get The Blues, by the way) has done a fabulous job of interpreting my hero, Brennan, and my heroine, Naamah, from the Red Sage CAF I filled out. Tuesday, you rock, babe — muwah!

Love the hint of flames — a symbol that I specifically asked to be included in the cover because for me flames evoke the Demon Realm, and of course Naamah is a felinoid demon. This novella is set entirely in the Lycan Realm — a savage and wild place that’s perfectly suited to Brennan, my leonine lycan hero.

BTW, just in case you’re wondering why Naamah’s practically naked too, well, there is an excellent reason for that! She’s been stripped of everything — her memories, her demonic powers, and her clothes! — and dumped in the Lycan Realm. And those of you who’ve read the first novella will doubtless have an excellent idea of just who might be to blame for Naamah’s plight, too. But shhhhhh, that’ll be our secret ;-). To add insult to injury, Brennan, a leonine lycan shifter, nicknames her “Kitten”!

Meow! Kitty vs Lion — watch the fur fly!

Here’s the official short ‘n’ sweet teaser:


Kitten is stripped of her memories and transported to the Lycan Realm. Lion shifter, Brennan, claims her body… and her heart. When they learn what kind of creature she truly is, a match made in heaven goes straight to Hell!

So, whaddya think of the cover?

Next step, line edits and a release date — can’t wait!

      Thanks, Sandra! I’m thrilled to be blessed by the cover gods…. or in this case, Goddess Tuesday, my Red Sage cover artist, LOL.

  3. Fab cover Maree! I don’t usually like blondes but Brennan is pretty yummy…

    • Maree says:

      Hey, thanks, Jennie!

      Being a lion shifter, Brennan’s hair was supposed to look like a lion’s mane — all blond & caramel-colored streaks — so I’m very happy with the cover!

      I gotta admit, I’m usually more partial to brunets, too. Except that Brennan is pretty hot — even just from the back view ;-)
