Sneak Peek: Cover Design for Deborah Sheldon’s Perfect Little Stitches and Other Stories

Deborah Sheldon’s long-anticipated short fiction collection, Perfect Little Stitches and Other Stories, will be published early in Q3 2017, but we couldn’t resist giving her fans a quick peek at the current version of her front cover design.

The atmospheric, creepy art is by the wonderful artist, Luke Spooner, from Carrion House – we have had the pleasure of working with him before with SQ Mag and another book cover, A Reason To Kill by Geraldine Fitzsimmons, for our International imprint.

Engaging Evil continues the unfolding series set on a distant and fabricated world where magic takes the place of technology and dragons and monsters dwell in unlikely places.

Following on from Book 1, Intimations of Evil, we follow the Cat, the priest, the princess, the ghazi, the tribesman and others, as they leave civilisation and enter the wilds and discover the hidden village of Mousehole, where lurks bandits and indescribable evil.

Engaging Evil is the second book of a series that sees worlds reshaped and myths confounded in a far-flung fantasy adventure.

Well done to Elizabeth Lang of EL Designs, and artist Catherine Archer-Wills for the spectacular cover.

Each story a mirror-image of the other…

A bad man trying to become good.

A good man turning bad.

Both men motivated by love.

DARK WATERS

Brendan Reilly, a.k.a. Danny Boy, is a veteran of the Overlords, an outlaw motorcycle club. A near-fatal accident leads him to an epiphany: he is determined to quit the life and reconnect with his ex-wife and son. At the same time, the Overlords are preparing for war against a rival gang, the Golden Jackals, and with Brendan’s loyalty in question, he is pushed further into the war when all he wants is a way out.

Dark Waters is a triumph through tragedy; a dark and uncompromising noir-like tale that is as much about the violence as it is about one man trying to escape it’

RONNIE AND RITA

Ron Spooner is middle-aged, alone and lonely, a nobody who has mowed lawns for a living ever since he was a boy. When he meets a young drifter, Rita, they fall in love, and want nothing more than a family of their own. Too bad it isn’t possible. Or is it? What Rita asks him to do is wrong. Terribly wrong. But Ron is willing to sacrifice everything for this twisted love affair.

Ronnie and Rita punches far above its weight. A poignant and clever combination of sadness and tension, manipulation and desire, right from the beginning there’s no way of avoiding the sense of impending disaster’

The artwork and design is by Keely Van Order, an artist based in Canberra. It beautifully captures the essence of the novel, and has the desired level of creepiness and tension we were looking for.
