Cover Inspirations ~ Fangs and Fists: Bolt by Kate Hill

Title: Fangs and Fists: Bolt
Author: Kate Hill
Gere: Paranormal/Sci-Fi Romance
Release Date: February 10, 2017
Publisher: Changling Press

Blurb: In a futuristic world ruled by demons, werewolves are enslaved to fight in gladiatorial matches for the amusement of their evil masters.

Kiara remembers what life was like living free -- before she was taken by demons and bred to gladiators so that the new generations of wolves would retain their ferocity but forget their freedom. Mated to top gladiator Grit, she has a son with this surprisingly gentle lover who is also planning their escape. When Grit is killed in the arena, his close friend Bolt upholds his promise to protect Kiara and the cub.

Bolt and Kiara have loved each other from the moment they met, but they buried their feelings because she was mated to his best friend. When Grit dies, despite their guilt, Bolt and Kiara surrender to their desire for each other. Will their love be strong enough to help them win freedom from their evil masters?

Kate Hill's Inspiration
My story combines a lot of things that I wanted reflected on the cover. It takes place in a futuristic world that has both magic and modern technology. The werewolves in the story are different than other species because they have taken pride in living with few modern conveniences and basically staying away from magic. Now that demons have taken over, they're finding that their old fashioned lifestyle is harming them because demons have no problem with using both magic and tech to control the world. I wanted a cover that reflects the wolves' spirit and their loyalty to their past. I also wanted one that pictured someone who looks like the hero, because to me it's important for any people on a book cover to reasonably resemble characters in the story. In addition, I hoped for a cover inspired by gladiators/warriors because in the Fangs and Fists world, demons use werewolves for entertainment in gladiatorial sports. While I don't have final say on my covers, Changeling Press allows authors a lot of input. The cover image used for Fangs and Fists: Bolt, was one of my top choices.

Kat Hill's cover really captured the gladiator feel. When I look at him, I see a determined warrior ready to take on the world. What do you think?
