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!

 

Denya Fanart – Darien Maverick

Hello and happy Fanart Friday!  This week we have a new piece of Denya Fanart, which I just love.  Seriously, we don’t get enough pieces of Denya.  She’s such a great character.  I am dying to start sharing the new characters from the Wildfires of Summer for you guys, but that will have to wait…for now!

Hello everyone!  Wow, what an amazing week it has been releasing Longtails: The Storms of Spring.  I can’t wait to hear what you guys think of it!  This week we have a new fanart from the amazing Daisy Vayle who did one of the first ever Fanart pieces for Longtails.  This time, we have a piece of Del reading some comic books, his favorite past time!

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!!!

Del Fanart – Mean Green

Can you even believe that Longtails will be out in NINE DAYS??? I sure can’t.  I remember back in December when I was thinking that April would be here before we knew it and now it’s here!! How time flies.  Today we have a new piece of art from an artist I’ve worked with before on art for the site.  Mean Green did a Kando piece which I shared a while back.  Today we’ve got Del blasting away enemies in one of his favorite past times!  Enjoy!
