Christmas Poll: Which is your favourite Lazlo Ferran book Cover?

bannerFirst of all, a Happy and Peaceful Christmas to you all and may you have a Happy New Year.

I am extending the Competition to Win a Bottle of Bubbly until 1 January 2015. You will need sign up for the Newsletter if you want to enter.

I would also like you to know that Ordo Lupus and the Temple Gate – Second Edition will be FREE on Amazon from 29 December until 2 January.

Now on to the poll.

Which is your favourite Lazlo Ferran Cover?

I have just completed updating all my book covers so now I would like your opinion. There is no prize but I hope you take the time, while drinking the last glass of wine and eating the last mince pie, to take the poll. I have put up all the covers below the poll but they are probably going to show up very random here because there are so many and wordpress doesn’t like it. Enjoy!

What should I call the Ordo Lupus Series?

Ordo Lupus and the Temple Gate
Ordo Lupus and the Temple Gate
Today, something a bit different. I need to think of a new name for the Ordo Lupus Series. The third book, to be published next year, begins to focus more on a good (ie benevolent) vampire and we will see less of Ordo Lupus. However, the story does continue and I don’t see an end to it at the moment so I need a series title which includes ‘Ordo Lupus’ but also suggests the other elements; The Serpents and also the good vampire. The phrase or sentence needs to be of no more than 7 words and I would suggest it should include the word ‘blood.’ Include the word vampire if you like but bear in mind that the Ordo Lupus books are paranormal thrillers and not fantasies.

Competition
I am soon to release World Like Dust, the next part of the Iron Series. In this episode, the Stamford Torus space station, J5 (looking something like the illustration below) has to leave the Solar System under it’s own power as a final refuge of mankind. I think it should have a new name for this voyage so I want you to choose one. All you have to do is download a FREE copy of Too Bright the Sun, comment here AND share a Facebook post or a Twitter tweet to win the prize of a free copy of Worlds Like Dust. It will be published as two, novel length books so it is a prize worth winning! in addition, your name will be used in the published book and you will also get an acknowledgement at the beginning of the book.

Don’t forget, the main difference between the station in this image and J5 is that J5 has a half-scale replica of the Golden Gate Bridge over a half-scale river, where Jake Nanden spent much of his youth.

I look forward to hearing your ideas! Good luck!
