Cover Release! The Resurrectionist

Didn't know if any of you had heard of this yet or not.  I found this on the author, Devyn Quinn, site.  Devyn has written books in different areas; mermaids, vampires, shapeshifters and now Steampunk!!  I love the sounds of it, and its steampunk! :D

We have two covers.  According to the author the blue is for eBooks and the gold will be on print books.

The Resurrectionist
By:  Devyn Quinn
Tentative Release:  February 2013

(print cover)

Description, from author site:
London, 1830
In the emerging field of medicine, Lady Florentia Palmer is a firm believer in science. She has no patience for the simple beliefs of an earlier age, or the tenants of religion based on faith alone. She also does not care for the limits society places on her womanhood, and is determined to carve her own path in life. As a noblewoman with a substantial trust, she is able to follow her passion with complete impunity.
Unfortunately women of her era aren’t allowed to attend med school, which pushes Florentia to take a desperate risk: to disguise herself as a young man. Her deception, thus far, has gone undiscovered and Florentia is a top student and promising surgeon. But hiding her unfortunate gender isn’t the sole obstacle this young student faces. In order to study anatomy, she must acquire stolen corpses, a highly illegal and dangerous measure.
Her current subject turns out to be the victim of a strange murder. But that’s not the only thing Florentia is about to discover. In fact, she is shocked beyond reason when he revives during the autopsy! Probing the miraculous event, Florentia learns he isn’t exactly alive. The young man, Andrew Waterston, is one of the undead; a vampire. As science and superstition clash, Florentia delves deeper into the mystery of how Andrew became “infected” with what must surely be a strange new disease. Excited by the prospect of discovering the source, her search for the truth plunges her into London’s dangerous underworld, where creatures of nightmare walk fog shrouded streets in search of victims they need to feed hellish hungers. There, she will encounter a darkly fascinating being, the ungodly beast Nicolae Miklos Dragomir~ who is also a master of seduction. Drawing Florentia in as a spider lures the fragile fly, Nicolae threatens to steal not only her heart, but drain away her very soul…


Sound good?  Well, there is a vampire mixed in this steampunk world.  I think it sounds like an amazing read, mystery and romance, and so much more!

  1. Sounds promising but can't we have the blue on the print books and leave the gold for the e-books.

    1. Petty Witter, I like the blue as it makes the title stick out, but I don't know if blue is the pick. If there was more in the picture to pull with it or something. But I do like the sounds of this one as well. :)

  2. I agree - I like the gold font better than the blue. :) I shared a link to this today on my blog: http://authorjess.blogspot.com/2012/05/whats-up-wednesday-playing-blog-catch.html

    1. Jessica L. Buike, thank you for stopping by and sharing the link as well! I like the gold lettering because it matches the picture, but the blue pops the words out for me. I just don't know if blue is the right color for me though. :) Thank you!

  3. I need to do another Steampunk week. Oh and I love that gold coloring better than the blue. Either that or add some blue into the picture.

    1. Melissa (Books&things) - lol. I think you need to do another steampunk week too! :D That was so much fun! :) Maybe I could join you here or something. hee hee. I have a few steampunks I want to get. I agree with your thoughts on the cover too. I like the gold, but it seems to blend in to much with the picture. I like the blue as it pops out more, but needs something else in the picture with it. :) Thank you!

  4. Thanks for the mention. We're still working the cover font to be as eye catching as possible, so a third color combination may appear for the final release. For my first Steampunk we're going all out to do our best.
