The Demons Within by Ashe Armstrong – COVER REVEAL
Today is a special day. It marks the third anniversary of the release of my first book, A Demon in the Desert. It is also the day I’ve chosen to reveal the cover for my third book, The Demons Within. I’m fortunate enough to have found an amazing artist even before my first book was finished. I found Bob Kehl on DeviantArt (I cannot remember how exactly) and commissioned him for the original cover of A Demon in the Desert, which was done in the style of the poster for Clint Eastwood’s Pale Rider. The next time I hired him, I commissioned a piece of promo art and a full sleeve for my second book, Demon Haunted. Through a bit of a miscommunication between Bob and I, and some comments by some friends, the promo piece ended up being a beautiful replacement for the cover to A Demon in the Desert. Both covers had a more matching style now and I started getting more comments (especially for Demon Haunted). Now, after a successful Kickstarter campaign for book 3 back in October, we have the new cover.
This time around, I wanted to go more dynamic. I wanted an action cover. The resulting artwork is fan-freaking-tastic and feels like a parallel line to my journey as a writer. I’ve made no secret that A Demon in the Desert is a bit rough around the edges. Demon Haunted saw a lot of growth, especially with the help of Tim Marquitz (who could really use a few book sales after having heart surgery recently) as my editor. Now, I feel like I’ve improved even more and the artwork reflects that as well. Thanks to Laura M. Hughes’s work as my editor this time around, Bob’s gorgeous artwork, and my own growth, I think this book will manage to capture even more people’s attention. So, without further ado…
An isolated farming town has a demon problem, and Grimluk is on hand to fix it. But this time, things aren’t that simple. While Grimluk hunts the demon, a rock crashes from the sky; a rock containing something alien to the world of Arkod. Something oozing and grotesque. Something hungry.
Hunter becomes hunted as this new threat pursues Grimluk, all but immune to his bullets. Worse, the creature’s deadly shapeshifting nature means it could be anywhere – or anyone – around him. Despite his efforts to protect his new friends and the rest of the innocent townsfolk, Grimluk learns all too quickly that it’ll take more than a quick hand and a strong will to win this fight.
For nothing is deadlier than the demons within.
Pre-orders will go up on September 1st, and you can get your hands on a copy on October 1st! Happy reading!
