The MINOTAUR cover is uncloaked!

Okay, I have been bursting for months to share the cover for MINOTAUR, my upcoming queer fantasy/horror novel. AND NOW I CAN!! Night Owl Reviews has done an exclusive reveal of the cover by Imaliea. I cannot say enough good things about this artwork. You can see it here, and learn a little bit more about MINOTAUR, which was one of my absolute favorite books to write.

I'm not sure what to say about it genre-wise. It's more on the literary side of things, and is actually fairly grounded in reality, except for a few fantasy elements. Like the, uh, Minotaur. Kind of an alternate history/dreamscape type story about a group of orphan punks who become fascinated by the legend of a beast that once terrorized their town. There is a love story, but it's not the focus.

MINOTAUR is available for preorder at Riptide (with some discounts offered), and will be released October 19th. 

Know this: I am not a warrior. I am a disease.
When I was six, my parents died.
When I was sixteen, I was locked away in Rock Point Girls’ Home. Nobody wants to deal with a liar. An addict. A thief.
Nobody except Alle. She is pure, and she’s my friend in spite of all the rotten things I am. 
There was once another girl like me—long ago. A cast-off daughter. A lying little beast who left a red stain across the land with her terrible magic. She’s imprisoned now in a maze high up on the cliffs. They say she’s half woman, half bull. They say she dines on human tributes and guards a vast treasure. They say she was born wicked.
But I know her better than the history books or stories do. She and I dream together. Our destinies are twisted up like vines.
Except I’m not going to turn out wicked like she is. I can save myself by destroying her. I’m going to break out of this place, and I’m going to enter the labyrinth and take her heart.
And once I’m redeemed, maybe Alle will love me.
