COVER REVEAL: Along The Razor's Edge Hardcover Edition by Rob J. Hayes

 



Here we go with something a bit fancy. To mark the 2nd anniversary of The War Eternal’s series release (I still can’t quite believe it’s been two years already), I decided I wanted to give Eska some nice hardbacks. I don’t know about anyone else, but I love collecting hardbacks. There is something a bit different to owning a book that solid. But I didn’t just want to use the old artwork. I wanted to make these books a bit special. So I commissioned Felix Ortiz and Shawn T. King to bring whole new art to the books and to splash some new colour on the series.
 
If you’ll indulge me a short story, it all started with this image:

 

 
This was the original concept for Along the Razor’s Edge Felix produced so long ago now. I loved it. I loved it so damned much. But in the end we decided to go with something a bit more traditional for the covers. 




But I’ve NEVER stopped loving that original version. So when I approached Felix with the idea for the new hardbacks, I told him I wanted them done in that style. He took it as a challenge.
 
For the new ALONG THE RAZOR’S EDGE cover, I told Felix I wanted three major components:
- The first was obviously Eska looking youthful and defiant. For anyone who’s read the books, you’ll understand. 
- The second was Ssserakis (the demon) being all scary. 
- And the third was shadows, given the entire book is set underground. 

We played around with a few different colour schemes, and in the end settled on purple. And Felix outdid himself. So I present to you all, the jacket cover for the ALONG THE RAZOR’S EDGE hardback.

 


But that’s not all. The case of the hardback is also printed with the naked artwork and the book’s tagline on the back done in the same bespoke font that Shawn created for the titles. I’ve also completely reformatted the interior for as professional a book as I can make.

 


The hardbacks are available now from Amazon and probably some other online retailers. 
 
Also I sell signed copies direct from my website. But please be aware international postage is currently a bit ridiculous.

And, of course, I have to remind you all here that The War Eternal series is continuing this year. SINS OF THE MOTHER (book 4) is releasing on May 3rd




And DEATH’S BEATING HEART (book 5) is coming in December.

Also the cover reveals for the other two hardback editions are happening later today. Keep a watch over these lovely sites for the cover reveals:
