Cover Reveal: Trouble on the Waters: Stories of Sailors, Pirates, and Gambling Men

As you all know, I'm a sucker for anthologies. I love all sorts - fantasy, steampunk, swashbuckling, urban fantasy, paranormal romance... You name it, it catches my eye. And Danielle Ackley-McPhail is an author and editor of many of a great looking anthologies.

I happen to have a cover for the next she's edited and has a story in. Another one looking like a great adventure. An adventure of the high seas.

The cover....

Trouble on the Waters: Stories of Sailors, Pirates, and Gambling Men
Edited By:  Danielle Ackley-McPhail
Phoebe Wray, David Sherman, Jeffrey Lyman, and Danielle Ackley-McPhail
Due Out:  May 2014

A life on the water is a constant gamble. Whether a sailor pits himself against the forces of nature or finds himself at the mercy of man, odds are even how the encounter will turn out, depending whose side the luck rolls up on.
In Phoebe Wray’s Sailor of Kannar, Darcy must take her chances in courts of intrigue to preserve her people’s way of life among the marshes.
In Danielle Ackley-McPhail’s Trouble on the Water Rishima Blaque clings to faith and a rock in the middle of the sea in the hopes her husband will find her before the pirates do.
In David Sherman’s Vest of the Pecos, Kitty Belle and Cheyenne Walker join forces once again to pit their wiles against the denizens of a paddleboat gaming salon, only to find themselves facing a gamble of another sort.
In Jeffrey Lyman’s Unsinkable Princess Cordolya bows to her father’s dictates, setting sail for an alliance with a country across the sea, only to find herself beset by pirates, leviathans, and a mage-borne storm. Will luck be with the lady or will she make her own?
No Matter What, Trouble’s Coming for Someone…

Sounds like a whale of a time! Okay, sorry for the weak joke and no whales. Or that I know of. ;) But sounds like great adventures at see.
