The Marathon Conspiracy: cover reveal!

The Marathon Conspiracy is number 4 of the Athenian Mysteries, and here's the cover!



It's another beautiful artwork from professional artist Stefano Vitale.  During the course of the series Stefano has moved to Venice from the US.  So we have an Australian author, a US publisher and an Italian artist.

You might have noticed the bear.  The bear and the skull that Nico holds are part of the story, needless to say.  The stoa in the background is the Sanctuary of Artemis at Brauron.  It is famous, amongst other things, for being one of the world's first school for girls.

Incredibly, we're actually organized for this book.  The release details are already up on the major stores.  Release date is early May 2014.

The Wife Unit may or may not have let out a girly squee.

Thank you, Gentlemen!

Stephanie Thornton said...

That may be my favorite cover yet! (No mean feat as I absolutely loathe bears...)

And it looks like we'll have books releasing at the same time--we'll have to come up with a good plan to distract each other from stalking Amazon rankings that week!

Hi Stephanie! We can form a support group for obsessive compulsive authors. And congrats on your next release!

Have you read The Good Book - A Secular Bible - by A.C. Grayling? The book of 'Histories' is especially illuminating. But you'd know lots about it already.
Your book cover looks great! Congratulations.

Gary Corby said...

Thank you, ladies!

I'm always tempted to say the latest cover is the best yet. But yes, this is the best yet.
