Cover Reveal For My First Book

Okay, I'm on the verge of publishing my first book, EON (Chronos Ring #1), so I thought I'd mimic what other authors do and have a cover reveal.  Therefore, without further ado:

Needless to say, it's a scifi yarn (and a darn good one, if I do say so myself!).  For those interested, here's the blurb from the back:

In the far future, mankind lives safe and secure behind the Chronos Ring – an automatic defense system that encircles the area of space occupied by human beings. The Ring keeps out all of humanity’s enemies – in particular, a vicious race of reptilians known as the Parsnaak.

On the outer fringe of human-occupied space is the planet Muse, an entire world dedicated and established as a colossal museum – a storehouse of antiquities and relics from the ancient histories of both men and aliens. There, Ian Lotus, a man with his own mysterious past, has chosen to live in deliberate obscurity, harboring secrets that could reshape mankind’s destiny.

Now, the impossible has happened: the Chronos Ring has been breached – rendered inert – and Lotus finds himself no longer able to hide in the shadows as he becomes the object of a massive interplanetary manhunt. However, his problems go well beyond simply being the most wanted man in the galaxy. There’s also the approaching Parsnaak invasion fleet to deal with, as well as an enigmatic, extra-dimensional being of immense power who, for reasons unknown, wants Lotus dead.

At a guess, I'm probably a few days away from releasing the book.  The Kindle version isn't quite ready yet, but I had a real temptation to hit "publish" for the print version as I was loading it today.  (Ideally, I'd like to release them around the same time.) That said, I have a tough time resisting temptation (which explains why I'm on my ninth marriage...)  Seriously though,  I'm going to have to find some way to keep myself occupied - like figuring out the best way to market this book - or I probably will give in to the urge and release the print copy first.  (Must...not...press...button...)

Regardless, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the book is well-received.
