Laurell K. Hamilton posted the cover to Kiss the Dead, the 21st Anita Blake book on her blog a couple of days ago. And I love it. It doesn't scream urban fantasy but has a nice murder mystery flair to it. The novel releases June 5.
I keep hoping that Laurell's writing will return to its earlier polished and taught form, but then I noticed her recent blog article on Sensuality and the Writer where she goes on for paragraphs about the minutiae of hair for a minor character. Whatever happened to the generally accepted philosophy of take care of the big picture and the small details will take of themselves? One can only hope.
