PURE MAGIC, a Black Dog novel by Rachel Neumeier (@RachelNeumeier) ~ cover art & design

Rachel Neumeier, one of my favorite clients, and more prolific authors I work with, just shared her publishing schedule with me for her Black Dog book series. I think it was a subtle way of her letting me know my job is secure for a while, lol. 

The first book in the series, Black Dog, wasn't dressed by me (before Rachel and I met), and is available through Amazon. (Plans for the future redressing of book one have been discussed.) With that in mind, I went to work on Black Dog Short Stories, the second book in the series, comprised of four short stories featuring the characters from Black Dog (find out more about book II here). 

If I am understanding the list Rachael sent me, the series will alternate as: novel, short stories, novel, short stories II, novel, short stories III, etc.

Pure Magic is the third book in the series, making it a novel (an epic 120K word novel). 

Back cover text:

Following the defeat of their deadly enemy Malvern Vonhausel, Alejandro and Natividad – and their human brother, Miguel – have begun to feel that, against all odds, they may have succeeded in making a new home for themselves among the black dogs of Dimilioc.  But keeping that home safe involves challenges they never anticipated.  It’s bad enough that stray black dogs, taking advantage of Dimilioc’s weakness, are appearing everywhere; much worse are powerful rivals who would tear Dimilioc down entirely and claim Dimilioc’s authority for their own.
Then Dimilioc is shaken by the arrival of someone unexpected:  Justin, who is both Pure and male; who is at once wholly ignorant of traditional Pure magic, yet uniquely talented; and who becomes immediately both a source of contention within and a potential asset for all of Dimilioc.
Then, as it becomes clear that Dimilioc has an unexpected and much more serious enemy, Natividad decides that, whatever the cost, both she and Dimilioc are going to need every asset they can gather.  If Dimilioc black dogs won’t risk Natividad in battle, if Justin won’t help Dimilioc, if everyone won’t pull together voluntarily – then Natividad has a plan …
And before I forget, remember to track Rachel down on Twitter and bookmark her website :D 

Onto wrapping up the next book :-D
Until next time ...
