When I first read A Stretch of Loyalty, I loved it way more than I ever thought I would, and I knew I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next books. Thankfully, Jack asked if I'd be interested in reviewing an advanced copy (my answer: WELL DUH!), so I didn't have long to wait for A Test of Loyalty. Let me tell you folks, if you haven't read these books yet... you're missing out. Put them on your to-read list TODAY.
And here's the lovely cover of book one of the Loyalty Trilogy. Yes, I put it strategically there so that the real cover for this reveal wouldn't pop up automatically on your blog dashboard and give you no reason whatsoever to read this post. So there. Besides, it's an awesome cover. I want a cape like that.
Okey dokey. Now are you ready for the reveal?
Delightfully scrumptious, isn't it? *grins*

About the author:
Jack Lewis Baillot has the ability to wear a red shirt because she is convinced she is Scottish and therefore immune to expendable dying. It also helps that she has a last name.
Jack claims the title of Author, which makes her feel like a Time Lord when she capitalizes it. She has a sonic pen which deepens her Time Lord claims. She enjoys a good Science Fiction story though spends most of her time writing Fantasy and Steampunk, or a mixture of both.
She believes cliff hangers are terrible and feels the need to apologize over and over when one of her books ends on one.
When Jack isn't writing, which doesn't happen often, she goes on long hikes through the ice lands she calls home. She believes she will one day meet the Abominable Snowman and share a cup of hot chocolate with him.
