Countdown to Psychomancer

Okay, so the countdown is starting at like, 2 or 3, but still.  Here's the cover with art by Ricardo Sandoval and design by Wendy McBride:

I'll do my standard My People post once the book goes live. I still have to format it and upload it, but that means it should be live by Wednesday.  And because my regular readers are awesome, I'm going to sell it for $0.99 for the first week so that anyone who wants a copy can get one cheap. I may or may not advertise the sale price. Then it's going up to $4.99.

Here's da blurb:

Science scoffs at the concept of luck. The lottery is called a tax on people who are bad at math, and Vegas rakes in cash based on precise odds, not good fortune.

But what if good luck were a scientific reality?

Cornelius Worthington, the luckiest man in the world, washes up on a beach in Miami with no knowledge of where he is.

Natasha Barrett, the most gifted psion the government has ever trained, is tasked with capturing or killing him.

Seymour Zimmerman, a freelance journalist who writes a syndicated column about strange deaths, follows their path of destruction and winds up with a bigger story than he could have ever imagined.

Then things start to get really weird.

Psychomancer is alternatingly funny and horrific, philosophical and explosive. Through the perspectives of three very different characters, it examines the concepts of fate, power and human potential, and asks the question: If good luck is real, what happens when we end up on the wrong end of someone else’s?


  1. That cover is seriously hot. That's really all I have to say.

  2. This sounds great and the cover is amazing... in fact, it seems like all of your book covers are outstanding. Burden Kansas & Psychomancer will soon be on my reading list.

  3. Okay, slate your wife for a post-office run when you get the print version back. You've got my address. I've got your Paypal. SEND.

  4. David - Thanks a lot! I really enjoy choosing my cover art. I take an odd amount of pride in my covers considering that they're good due to no real skill of my own.

    Grayson - In the words of Michelle Tanner: You got it dooood!
