Tube Riders: Exile covers

Okay, you've waited long enough and I've been getting itchy to show them, so here are the covers for the next installment in the Tube Riders series.

Firmly established as the heroine of The Tube Riders series from part one, I decided it would be nice to put Marta Banks on the cover of part two. My cover designer, Su Halfwerk, did a fantastic job of creating the Marta from my imagination. I would go as far to say that the girl on the front of Exile IS Marta, from her dreadlocked hair to the look in her eyes.

Here's the paperback.

When you put the two covers next to each other there's a definite bit of theme being carried through. I'm very pleased. I'm looking forward to adding a third book as soon as possible.

Of course, if you're a blogger, feel free to share these pictures anywhere you like!

Right, back to editing. Not long now ...

  1. wow! Amazing! The girl really looks like Marta (as we'd imagine her).

    Very exciting :D

    1. Thanks, Kelly! I was pretty worried about having characters on the book because I didn't think they would match my vision of them (I'm going to have issues when they're made into movies ...!), but this one is absolutely spot on.

  2. Fabulous! They're perfect!

    1. Thanks, Jenny, yeah, Su did a great job. I'm looking forward to getting the damn book out now ...!

  3. Looks good Chris!

    Hope you don't make us wait too long for book 2.


    1. Thanks, Doug! Shooting for July at the moment. Fingers crossed ...

      Hope you're doing well, bro.

  4. Trying my best.

    Tell Bobbi and the others I'm managing.
