Hello internet! I’m here to share the cover for the first Orphan Queen novella! But first, allow me to clarify one thing.

Technically, these are Orphan Queen novellas. The subtitles will all say “an Orphan Queen novella.” In my head, and what I often refer to them as, they are “Black Knife novellas,” since they’re about the origin story for the character Black Knife. You can call them whichever you like. As with “Incarnate series” vs. “Newsoul series,” I will know what you mean. 

And, as a reminder, while these four novellas will be released in the year between the two novels, they are prequels to that story, told from two years before OQ begins. You can read them before, between, or after the novels, but if you want to know what I think is the best, that’s to read everything in the order of publication.

Now, to the only part of this post you really care about: the cover.


There’s no descriptive copy for the novella yet because, um, I’m still writing it. And anything besides what I’ve already told you about the novella would likely spoil something in THE ORPHAN QUEEN for you. So for now, you can spend some time looking at this gorgeous thing.

And yes, if you were wondering, the same amazing people who did the cover for THE ORPHAN QUEEN are responsible for this one, too.

You can add THE HIDDEN PRINCE to your Goodreads.

The novella is also available for preorder on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and iTunes.
