Cover P0rn 2010

Friend of MFB, all round good guy and bloody good writer Sarwat Chadda has just sent out this gorgeous cover for his second novel: Dark Goddess, due out later this year from Penguin/Puffin here in the UK.

And people, you have to admit, this cover is simply stunning. I think uploading it in high res has retained it's quality so do go ahead and click on the image to take you to a larger version of it.

From having chatted to Sarwat about Billi's journey in Dark Goddess I deduce (she says, using her Holmes voice) that we're going to look back at Devil's Kiss and go"that was a cake-walk" compared to what Billi's going to go through in this one.

Is it wrong to want to fast forward time to speed things up so I can read books not yet published? Yeah, I thought so too!

I just love this gorgeous cover! I haven't read Devil's Kiss yet, but it is high on my wishlist. Thanks for sharing it with us!

It's almost funny.. I've given away a copy in a contest of mine but I haven't bought a copy for myself.

That's so nice! I saw the front on Sarwat's FB but not the whole thing. Wonderful!
