We can now reveal the wonderful front cover artwork and design of Kaaron Warren’s The Grief Hole.
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.
More news about release and launch dates, as well as the Dark Phases limited edition, will soon be made.
NB. The cover graphic above has been updated to the final, refined version prior to publication.
It is with much excitement that we can now announce our acquisition of Kaaren Warren’s novel, The Grief Hole, as part of our ongoing Dark Phases series – reserved for only the best of dark fiction. This means that we will be offering cloth bound editions, as well as a limited, signed edition.
The Grief Hole is dark exploration of grief, manipulation, malevolent ghosts, a monstrous, charismatic man and the woman who needs to venture deep into a place called The Grief Hole in order to stop him.
Over the next month or so we will be finalising the various release dates and events associated with this acquisition. Stay tuned.
