I know I just announced the pending pre-order status of “The Bitch King” about…. ten minutes ago… but it’s never too early to do another cover reveal! Especially since the covers for books #5 and #6 are already complete. Because they are special puppies however, they get their own reveal posts. Want a sneak peek of Queen of Nothing content? Don’t stop here – keep scrolling!

It had to have been fate, Anthony reasoned. There was no way that a woman as rare and lovely as this had just fallen into his lap by chance.
After his conversation with Pheseus had started to turn sour, Anthony had decided to step out into the garden in hopes that the fresh air would cleanse his palate. It eased his mind, but not his nerves. The past few days’ worth of apprehension was not so easily shrugged off his shoulders. Roses could only accomplish so much.
Of course, that was before he saw them – a pair of fine girls like decorative songbirds hardly a leap away, and she the prettiest of them. Their skin was the color of roasted almonds. Their necks were long and they had the same delicate, slender fingers. Yet it was there that their similarities halted. The one had admired had hair the color of cobalt, and rather than fine it was coarse like a horse’s mane. Her eyes were a deep, dark brown – almost black. The other girl, who he could only assume to be her sister, was the exact opposite. Her hair was the color of pale morning sunlight and her eyes were bright, dewy green. Neither girl spoke very much. That, he liked.
“Your pardon, my ladies,” he greeted them as he approached. “What a sight for sore eyes you are. Here I was, about to compliment my gardener on his exquisite taste in decoration. You must imagine how pleased I am to see that you are not painted statues – but flesh and bone nymphs. And I am endlessly enchanted.”
