And here it is.

I'm very pleased with the image Hale have come up with for my July release, The Ballad of Delta Rose.

It's a nice clean looking image and the aged character, mounted on his horse, looking thoughtful perfectly fits the fatalistic feel of the story.

The book is available for pre-order now and currently sitting in the top spot of Amazon's pre-order western charts. The Black Horse series are largely intended for the library trade which means short print runs and pre-ordering is really the best way to ensure your copy. Pre-order HERE - no monies will be deducted from bank accounts until the book is ready to ship in July.

My most hardboiled westerns.

The Ballad of Delta Rose to be published July 29th 2011 from Robert Hale LTD/ Black Horse Westerns

Fantastic cover! Looking forward to reading it!

Gary Dobbs/Jack Martin said...

Yeah I think the cover rocks. That guy really is Delta Rose

The artist is Prieto Muriana, whose art has been used on BHWs since year one, 1986. They are usually from a library of stock covers and therefore fairly "generic". Pleased to hear this one is a good fit!

Very nice cover painting. Looks great, even though it breaks the mold for the "required" action scene for most covers.
