New Covers for My Angels

The Prometheus Project has new covers, which actually are new versions of their original covers.

Yes, that makes sense. Read it again. 🙂

Here’s what happened. When Fallen, Guardian, and Rebel were originally published, TOR commissioned cover illustrations from artist Larry Rostant. I loved these images and the resulting covers. Here they are:

Fallen, book #1 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Claire Delacroix, out of print mass market edition Guardian, book #2 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Claire Delacroix, out of print mass market edition Rebel, book #3 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Claire Delacroix, out of print mass market edition

When the right to publish the books reverted to me, I tried to contact Larry to find out if I could license the illustrations for the new images. I didn’t have any luck finding him, though. (My message probably went to spam.) So, I had Kim Killion design new covers with stock photographs. I decided to try something different and focus on the heroines for the covers—a strong tradition in urban fantasy romance—and these are the covers:

Fallen, an urban fantasy romance by Claire Delacroix Guardian, an urban fantasy romance by Claire Delacroix Rebel, an urban fantasy romance by Claire Delacroix

There also were two additional covers, one for Tupperman’s store, Abyss, and one for the digital bundle of the entire series:

Abyss, an urban fantasy romance by Claire Delacroix The Prometheus Project Boxed Set of urban fantasy romances by Claire Delacroix

Fast forward to last spring. I saw a beautiful cover illustration on Pinterest, pinned by Larry Rostant. It was one of his newer works, and just beautiful. I tried to contact him again, and this time, it worked! I licensed the three images for my editions of the first three books. I hired Frauke Spanuth to create the covers (the illustrations have no type on them) and asked if she could possibly come up with something similar for Tupperman’s book, Abyss. Well. She knocked it out of the park, as far as I’m concerned.

I also took this opportunity to change the author name on the books. Although TOR wanted to publish the series as Claire Delacroix books, and I thought at the time that Claire might focus on urban fantasy from that point onward, it hasn’t worked out that way. Claire is writing and publishing medieval romance, so these books look out of place on her list. Deborah, though, is writing a lot of paranormal romance. Urban fantasy romance isn’t quite the same, but it makes more sense for the angels to be with the dragons than with the knights.

Here are the new covers for my fallen angel books:

Fallen, #1 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Deborah Cooke Guardian, #2 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Deborah Cooke Rebel, #3 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Deborah Cooke Abyss, #4 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Deborah Cooke

The book pages here on the website have moved to the list of Deborah Cooke books, too.

Expect the new editions to be available in your bookstore of choice in October. I’m not changing the ISBN#’s, but am just uploading these as new editions. (All the books already listed both Deborah and Claire as authors in their metadata.) You should be able to download the new editions if you’ve bought the earlier ones. And yes, that means more print books in the sale bin at my online store.

What do you think of the new covers?

Bitten by Books Review of Rebel

Rebel, book #3 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Claire DelacroixAnd today, we have the third review from Carol Malcolm at Bitten by Books for my Prometheus Project series of urban fantasy romances. This one is for Rebel, and here is the concluding paragraph of her review:

“In this fabulous novel, Delacroix masterfully combines the unlikely mix of non-stop action and suspense with intriguing intellectual ideas, providing a glimpse into a horrifying world that feels all too possible. The depiction of a society ravaged by nuclear destruction, the shades suffering the literal fall-out, that descends into abject slavery and rampant bigotry makes the reader’s skin crawl. Despite this representation and the images used to portray it, the tone of the narrative contains a strong positive element due to the thread of hope that runs throughout.

The presence of the visiting angels seeking to aid humanity and essentially save them from themselves bolsters that atmosphere of optimism, but Armand, before meeting Theodora, questions the wisdom of angelic involvement. Longing to rejoin with the rest of the host and unsure of the success of his mission, Armand wonders, “What would he do in this sphere, with no hope of ever escaping it?” (250). Though not the primary focus of the story, the growing relationship between angel and wraith adds poignancy and determination to the mission of both characters.

Though this reviewer regrets not being able to return to this fascinating universe due to this installment marking the end of the series, Rebel delivers a highly-satisfying conclusion to the superb Prometheus Project Trilogy.”

Of course, I’m sending Carol a copy of Tupperman’s book, Abyss, to review. You can read all of her review for Rebel on the Bitten by Books site right here, and you can read an excerpt from Rebel on this site, right here.

Bitten by Books Review of Guardian

Guardian, book #2 of the Prometheus Project of urban fantasy romances by Claire DelacroixToday, I’m continuing to share Carol Malcolm’s wonderful reviews of my Prometheus Project series of urban fantasy romances. Here are her concluding comments in her review of Guardian:

“No mean feat, the author ably sustains the suspense of the characters on the run in a cat-and-mouse game for the duration of the novel, resulting in a page-turning reading experience with thrills and surprises. Delacroix creates a stark, horrifying, and heartbreaking world visited by brief moments of beauty when the angels come to call. The introduction of the wraiths, the shadowy former citizens who will do any job for a price, adds an eerie quality to the narrative. The mixture of futuristic science fiction and angel lore works due to the strong characterizations of both Delilah and Rafe as the threads binding the two aspects together. Though a bit more of a paranormal romance than its predecessor, this book should also please urban fantasy fans. This reviewer looks forward to the next installment in the series.”
