Most of my covers are designed to specifically for my novels, but once in a while, I’ll find a pre-made cover that captures the heart of the story. Carnival Tricks was one such cover. Carnival Tricks is a segue in the Double Helix series, and is the first in what I call the Case Files. These novels focus on the mercenaries of the Three Fates, and feature guest appearances by the main cast of the Double Helix series, including Zara, Xin, and Danyael.
In Carnival Tricks, Sofia Rios stumbles upon a dying scientist and becomes the unwilling carrier of genetic information that vicious drug cartels and shady government agencies would kill to obtain. In my mind’s eyes, Sofia had short hair, but when I came upon this cover, I decided that adding a couple of inches to her hair was a fair trade for a great, pre-made cover.
Carnival Tricks recently won a Palm Literary Award for best science fiction, so I hope you’ll take some time to check it out. Fans of Zara and Danyael will be thrilled to find the assassin and the alpha empath in this novel too.
If you haven’t yet read Perfection Unleashed, the first book in the Double Helix series, you can join my mailing list for a free copy, before continuing on with the rest of the award-winning Double Helix novels. Enjoy!
