And The Winner Is…

The winning cover was designed by Venanzio. It is awesome, but I must say it won against some stiff opposition. The facility to carry out polls is a really great feature on 99designs, because it allows you to test immediate reactions of people unfamiliar with the covers.

My intention is to make this story free out like The Fate Healer, so publication will be a little drawn out. I hope it will be free on all the usual stores by mid next week. Here’s the blurb to wet your appetite.

Dr. Herbert Marriott has a problem that only murder can solve. Luckily for him, the perfect weapon is locked away in his rundown museum, one too incredible for any court to accept. The cursed chair kills all who rest upon it. But will Herbert’s victim be so easily drawn to her fate?
