Longtails: The Wildfires of Summer Cover Reveal

Hello everyone! Wow, what a year it has been. When I decided to publish not one but TWO books this year, I don’t think I could have possibly imagined the amount of work it would take.  But now, here we are with Book 2 of Longtails finally ready to meet all of you! Longtails: The Wildfires of Summer will be available everywhere books are sold on September 23, 2019.  That’s right, the LAST DAY OF SUMMER! Talk about just making the cut!

With that being said, I thought we’d take a look at the amazing cover art, designed and illustrated by Dexter Allagahrei, who you may recall did the cover for Longtails: The Storms of Spring.  With any luck, I won’t have scared him away with the crazy last minute deadline of this cover and we’ll have him for rest of the series!

Alright, enough talk, here’s the front cover!

And of course, here’s the back cover!

Since it’s a little small, I thought I’d include the back cover text here for you:

In a not too distant future, humanity is extinct. The world is now ruled by animals who wield swords, cast spells, and use what we left behind to craft weapons, mechs and motorbikes.  And while darkness may be looming just over the horizon, the greatest threat the nations of this new world now face is each other.

After learning to accept himself and his newfound powers, Del Hatherhorne and his band of Longtails are called upon to help broker a peace treaty between the Confederacy of Blue Jays and the Raccoon Enclave.  However, when the raccoons realize that Del, the one and only Trelock, has been invited to the treaty signing, things quickly escalate beyond any of their control. Now, a fire blazes to the south, a war rages right outside the ancient blue jay city of Nesavary, and old enemies are closing in from all sides. Del, along with new friends and old, will need to learn to ignite hope in the face of total destruction as they attempt to survive The Wildfires of Summer.

From Jaysen Headley, author of Longtails: The Storms of Spring and A Love Story for Witches, the epic woodland adventure continues in this exciting second chapter of the Longtails Saga.

Draw your sword, rev your engine, and answer the call of the LONGTAILS!

I can’t wait for all our loyal Longtails fans to get a hold of this book in less than a month! Are you excited? Let me know in the comments and make sure to follow the Longtails adventures on our official Facebook page!

 

Artemis Fanart – Tiny-Tina

I’ve posted art from Tiny-Tina before, and it should come as no surprise that I asked her to do even more art of the Longtails characters.  This time around, we have Artemis Truffel, the brave and bold captain of the Black Truffel.  Of course, Tina has her looking adorable, even if she is the fiercest skyrate in the skies.  I love it!!!

Barrel-Fist Fanart – Alibi Cami

Hello again!  Tomorrow is the big day!  You are all going to finally get your first look at the cover of The Storms of Spring.  But in the meantime, I wanted to share one more piece by  Alibi Cami who did yesterday’s Denya art.  This one is of Barrel-Fist, one of the main villains of the book.  Minks use a fair bit more tech than the mice, as you can see here.  I can only imagine Barrel-Fist has just thwarted a mouse’s happiness with a smile that big…
