It all began with a mask… a pig mask, that indelible, unforgettable cover to Matthew Blakstad’s astonishing debut SOCKPUPPET. Today we’re thrilled to reveal the cover to the (totally stand-alone) sequel LUCKY GHOST… and tell you a little bit about it!
You loved the cover of Sockpuppet.
You’ll love the paperback cover even more… (isn’t that lovely? This is actually a double reveal!)
And now we’re delighted to reveal the cover for Book 2 in the Martingale Cycle: LUCKY GHOST. It is yet another stunner by our incredibly talented Ben Summers, the genius behind Sarah Lotz’s wonderful covers and that unforgettable pig mask.
GORGEOUS, isn’t it? Let’s find out what happens…
Early one Monday morning, on an ordinary day much like today, journalist Alex Kubelick walks up to a total stranger and slaps him across the face. Hard.
He thanks her.
They’ve both just earned Emoticoins in a new, all-consuming game that trades real-life emotions for digital currency. Emoticoins are changing the face of the global economy – but someone or something seems to be controlling the game for their own, nefarious purposes.
As Alex begins to pick apart the tangled threads that are holding the virtual game together she finds herself on the run from very real enemies. With the world economy teetering on the brink of collapse, it seems there’s only one person who might have the answers she seeks.Someone who hides behind the mysterious name ‘Lucky Ghost.’
But who is Lucky Ghost… and can they really be trusted?
And what do they want?
LUCKY GHOST publishes on 17 July and it will be brilliant. You heard it here first!
