TEMPER Gets Cover Art!

Posted by Nicky Drayden on Jan 8, 2018 in Writer's Life

My sff/horror/dark humor novel TEMPER is headed to a bookstore near you Aug 07, 2018!

I’m so excited to share the story about how I came across this amazing artist! Read about it here on Harper Voyager’s Blog!

Descriptions are up on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and you can also add it to your Goodreads queue, just to be sure you don’t miss out on some devilish fun.

Also, THE PREY OF GODS is available as an audiobook, and the narrator is amazing. Take a listen to the sample for yourself!

And if you’re looking to get lost in some amazing stories, here are some of my favorite reads of 2017:

 The competition was really strong, so check my Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge to see the rest of the list.

Here are a few of my favorite reads of the year:

  • The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty – about a girl with magic powers and her hunky pet Djinn. (But don’t call him that!)
  • Noumenon by Marina J. Lostetter – which features a super-intelligent, sentient AI charged with overseeing the many needs of an interstellar convoy.
  • The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – A Black LIves Matter inspired story about a girl coping with effects of a police shooting in her community.
  • Parable of the Sower/Parable of the Talents
    by Octavia E. Butler
     – Because if we’re living in a dystopia, might as well be prepared.
