Black Blade Blues mass market release on March 29th

It’s getting close to the Mass Market Paperback release for Black Blade Blues. March 29th. I understand the price-point will be better for a lot of folks. I’m excited to have an opportunity to reach even more readers.

I love the way the awesome folks in the Tor art department decided to incorporated more of the original artwork into this cover.
For Black Blade Blues, they focused in on Sarah, but with the title, etc. it cut away part of the dragon. Now, they pulled back some to get more of the dragon in the scene and changed up some of the coloring. I like what they’ve done.
