Black Jaguar has a cover

The third book in the Chronicles of Kassouk series is scheduled to be released on November 1, 2010, and I just received the cover from the publisher.  I love it.  It's gorgeous and intense, and the jaguar has emerald eyes, just like in the story.  Both the beast and the master have that same mesmerizing gaze.  And I love the green background, since this particular story has a theme of tropical exploration.

Did you know that the word jaguar means "who kills in one leap?"  This is something I learned during the research I did for this story.  Yes, even when you write sci-fi romance with a hint of fantasy, you need to do serious research.

Felines are prominent in all my books, in this series, it's large felines.  White Tiger in book one, Red Leopard in Book Two, and Black Jaguar in book three.  Book four, scheduled for release next year, will be titled Blue Lioness.  You can already imagine what the cover will look like.  I also plan a prequel to this series for 2012, titled Noah's Ark.

This book will be available in November 2010 in all eBook formats from all eBook distributors, including Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Borders Kobo, Sony Reader, iPad and all readers in between.  All my stories in the series can be read individually, but if you don't like spoilers, you might want to start reading from book one and go from there.

I love this new title, and I hope you love it, too.
