Chasing Graves by Ben Galley, A Cover Reveal

Chasing Graves – Book One of the Chasing Graves Trilogy By Ben Galley

Release Date: December 7th 2018 (eBook & Paperback)

Chasing Graves*Meet Caltro Basalt. He’s a master locksmith, a selfish bastard, and as of his first night in Araxes, stone cold dead.

They call it the City of Countless Souls, the colossal jewel of the Arctian Empire, and all it takes to rule is to own more ghosts than any other. For in Araxes, the dead do not rest in peace in the afterlife, but live on as slaves for the rich.

While Caltro struggles to survive, those around him strive for the emperor’s throne in Araxes’ cutthroat game of power. The dead gods whisper from corpses, a soulstealer seeks to make a name for himself with the help of an ancient cult, a princess plots to purge the emperor from his armoured Sanctuary, and a murderer drags a body across the desert, intent on reaching Araxes no matter the cost. Only one thing is certain in Araxes: death is only the beginning.

That cover and blurb, as well as knowing what a superb writer Ben is, has me on high alert for this release. proper credit is due to his artwork by Chris Cold and design by Shawn T. King,

Knowing how much music inspires us, I love asking writers what their writing playlist is and Ben has shared his with us here. There are are some really rad tracks on this!

Ben is also a map maker. Here is his latest video, in which he creates one of the maps for his new book, Chasing Graves. He is a multi -talented fellow wouldn’t you agree? The Guy with all the Gifts.
