Official announcement: Lucia  
Alright. Just to make this official, even though many of you might have heard this already: Our next book will be 'Lucia', a darkly poetic German vampire novel joining its heroine on her voyage through the centuries, on the way towards her destiny and herself. So no sparkles here. ^^

And to point this out right in the beginning: the novel will be in German. I know, this has been met with very uneven reactions - but this novel started out in German, and will stay that way. Right now, there is no English translation planned, but we don't want to rule out anything.
But one of the most fun parts of seeing the project come together was commissioning the cover art and finally seeing the images we so far had only in our heads:

Isn't it awsome? Cover art is by the vastly talented and on top of that utterly charming Natalia Nesterova, who already did the cover art for 'Lovers in Arms'.

So this all has been a tremendously exciting last months, and just today we received our next English-language novel back from the editor! It's still quite a bit to do, but you can look forward to another new Brackhaus novel in 2016. A big thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged us!

The cover art is lovely and every evocative. I like how her hair resembles those tree branches.

So happy you like the cover! We also love how the hair and the branches work together... for more reasons than apparent. :D But you'll need to read the book to figure out why. ^^

Did I already mention we're having the time of our lives right now, with writing and editing and publishing and it all being a glorious, fun and exciting mess? Probably not, but I think it shows...
