TRUTHSEEKER revealed!  

Finally the TRUTHSEEKER cover has been presented to booksellers, which means I can finally post it myself! Hooray!


Though gifted with an uncanny intuition that allows her to discern when someone is lying, Lara Jansen is sure there’s nothing particularly special about her. All that changes when a handsome but mysterious man enters her quiet Boston tailor shop and reveals himself to be a prince of Faerie. What’s more, Dafydd ap Caerwynn claims that Lara is a truthseeker, a person with the rare talent of being able to tell truth from falsehood. Dafydd begs Lara to help clear his name by solving his brother’s murder, of which Dafydd himself is the only suspect.

Acting against her practical nature, Lara agrees to step through a window into another world. Now caught between bitterly opposed Seelie forces and Dafydd’s secrets, which are as perilous as he is irresistible, Lara finds that her abilities are increasing in unexpected and uncontrollable ways. With the fate of two worlds at stake and a malevolent entity wielding the darkest of magic, Lara and Dafydd will risk everything on a love that may be their salvation—or the most treacherous illusion of all.

I’m terribly pleased with this cover. I think it’s lovely. And look, look! She has a head! No semi-decapitated heroine for this book! Yay! :)

(Much bigger version )

*does the happy dance* :)

With just a glance, my first reaction was, "She has a head!" Followed by "Shiny! Nice cover!" :)

Somehow I think the model the artist used actually had bigger hips. I'm not sure why I think that. Just to my eye the lines don't quite match up. Nothing wrong with that, I suppose.

Maybe because, genetically, it's very rare for a woman with huge boobs to have little boy-hips? :)
Merlin Of Chaosmerlinofchaos on April 6th, 2010 02:15 am (UTC)
Cosmetic surgery has more or less done away with that rarity in modern society. I'm quite used to seeing large breasted women with tiny hips, particularly in magazines. =)

I think she's been elongated quite a bit between the bottom of her breasts and her crotch. Having 'seeker' over her midriff helps disguise that a little, but I noticed it after a bit: she's just a bit unnatural there. :)

hee hee. I hope you'll like it. :)

I should probably know the answer to this already, but is this the start of a new series, or a stand-alone novel?
kit: worldwalkermizkit on April 6th, 2010 09:28 am (UTC)
Book one of a duology! Second book will be out in 2011 sometime, I don't know when yet. :)

Who's the artist?
kitmizkit on April 6th, 2010 09:30 am (UTC)
Dunno, I'll ask. :)
annathepiper on April 6th, 2010 02:46 am (UTC)
Gorgeous! :) And YAY! A HEROINE WITH A HEAD! :) :)
HL Henriksonveilofgrace on April 6th, 2010 06:26 am (UTC)
Oooooooooooooooh. You always have such gorgeous covers! When does this one come out, again?
kitmizkit on April 6th, 2010 09:32 am (UTC)
August 31!

She has a head!

That was my first thought, too!

Okay, fine. Maybe it was my second. Nice shirt she's got there, BTW.

Gorgeous cover, in any case (and I do mean the whole thing).

And very interesting description. I'm still working my way through the Walker books, but I'll definitely have to put this one on my list.

Woot!! Has major cover envy!! T'is beautiful :-)

Great cover, love the sword and attitude. Working hypothesis -- blondes get to have heads on bookcovers?
Trent the Uncatchableknappenp on April 6th, 2010 02:01 pm (UTC)
My first thought was 'That's not Jo!'.

Is this your first blonde heroine?
kitmizkit on April 6th, 2010 02:04 pm (UTC)
Yeeeeeeeeees, I said, after thinking about it carefully. :)

I'm lagging behind on LJ, hence the delay, but ooooh, shiny, want!
