Cover Art - "Hell Fire" by Ann Aguirre

Ann Aguirre has a guest post at Borders Sci-Fi where she talks about the cover art for Hell Fire (April 6, 2010), the second book in her Corine Solomon urban fantasy series following Blue Diablo. She is asking for feedback and is doing a giveaway of the book to a commenter.


I’m still a redhead. Before we left Texas,
I touched up the roots with Garnier
Nutrisse 64-R, and then I had some
tawny apricot highlights put in. I guessed
that meant I intended to keep this color
for a while. Symbolic—I’d made a
commitment, at least to my hair.

As a handler, Corine Solomon can touch any object and know its history. It’s too bad she can’t seem to forget her own. With her ex-boyfriend Chance in tow—lending his particularly supernatural brand of luck—Corine journeys back home to Kilmer, Georgia, in order to discover the truth behind her mother’s death and the origins of her “gift.”
But while trying to uncover the secrets in her past, Corine and Chance find that something is rotten in the state of Georgia. Just a few miles away, no one seems to know Kilmer exists. And inside the town borders there are signs of a dark curse affecting the town and all its residents—and it can only be satisfied with death…

  2. Mardel I have Blue Diablo on my TBR stack but still haven't gotten to it. Sigh.

  3. It's pretty good. I loved it, and that's the book my puppy chewed a hole through FIVE pages of. Five pages toward the end, right after an intense fight scent. Ann Aguirre sent me (through e-mail) the five missing pages. How many authors would even pay attention to an email asking for replacement pages? I don't think very many. I wasn't sure what to expect, buy my husband said "might as well try, the worst that happens is you get turned down". I'll always have a soft spot in my hard little heard for Ann Aguirre because of that little bit of kindness. Plus she's a hell of a writer!

    If you haven't yet, you should also read Grimspace and Wanderlust- great space series.

  4. Mardel I have actually read Grimspace and quite liked it but that's all I have managed. I've heard nothing but good things about her books. She also drops in here and comments from time to time and is always fun and gracious. It doesn't surprise met that she responded to you. The UF community is amazing.

For bloggers comments are like water to a man (or woman) wandering in the desert. A precious commodity. I love to hear from everyone and do my best to respond to every post.
