Cover Art announced for
Pantomime by Laura Lam
I think this is a very striking image, its simplicity giving it maximum impact. As the publishers remark, the title and author’s name still need to be added; I hope that these are in sympathy with the image and don’t lessen its impact.
Here is the blurb for the book:
R.H. Ragona’s Circus of Magic is the greatest circus of Ellada. Nestled among the glowing blue Penglass – remnants of a mysterious civilisation long gone – are wonders beyond the wildest imagination. It’s a place where anything seems possible, where if you close your eyes you can believe that the magic and knowledge of the vanished Chimaeras is still there. It’s a place where anyone can hide.
Iphigenia Laurus, or Gene, the daughter of a noble family, is uncomfortable in corsets and crinoline, and prefers climbing trees to debutante balls. Micah Grey, a runaway living on the streets, joins the circus as an aerialist’s apprentice and soon becomes the circus’s rising star. But Gene and Micah have balancing acts of their own to perform, and a secret in their blood that could unlock the mysteries of Ellada.
I think Pantomime sounds intriguing, mysterious and magical. I shall be hunting this one down when it’s published in February 2013!
