We’re delighted to reveal to cover of David Ramirez’s forthcoming novel, The Black Disc! The art is by Raid 71, who did such stunning work on David’s debut, The Forever Watch.

On the surface, seventeen-year-old Susan King is a normal girl with normal problems – studying for the SAT, getting a date for prom, and worrying about how she’s going to pay for college. Except she’s not really a normal girl at all, and her problems are far from normal. For one thing, Susan has a secret online life as an activist, using the internet to bring down corrupt corporations around the world. For another, Susan’s already a millionaire.

Until the day that everything changes: the day a black disc appears from nowhere and begins to orbit the planet. That same day, Susan – and millions of people around the globe – receive an incoherent chain email, full of lunatic predictions claiming to foretell the end of the world. Susan, and everyone else, ignores the email.

And then the predictions start coming true. But what can one girl do to stop the apocalypse?

Without further ado, here’s the cover for The Black Disc:

The Black Disc

Publishers Weekly said of The Forever Watch: ‘Superior, psychologically plausible characterizations are combined with sophisticated worldbuilding, clever trope inversion and original plotting to create a powerful story that will amply reward rereading,’ while SFX gave it five stars in its review: ‘a superb book, cooly plotted and full of menace.’

The Black Disc publishes 9 April 2015.
