Hello everyone! Dane here, and today I’m excited to be revealing the cover for my new book, Scarlet Sins. A collection of stories and songs, it brings together fifteen years of lyrics and short fiction, along with a couple of extra goodies that I’m excited to share with you.

Here’s the super exciting new cover, designed by Larch Gallagher:

“I hope when I die that it may be said: His sins were scarlet but his books were read.”
 – Hillaire Belloc

Scarlet Sins is a collection of short stories and songs spanning two decades and taking the reader from the English countryside during the outbreak of World War I to the flower markets of Amsterdam and the depths of the infinite cosmos.

Discover what likes the darkness, why the clouds were mad when the sun came out and why the ghost of little Suki haunts the George and Dragon. Meet magician Durian Pink and his corpse plant, celebrate a black solstice with the Reid twins and see Kate lose her mind from fatal familial insomnia.

Scarlet Sins: Selected Stories and Songs is Cobain’s first collection of songs and stories and his tenth published work.

Scarlet Sins is due out for release on Friday 9th April in paperback and electronic formats. It was edited by my long-term editor and partner in crime Pam Elise Harris and will be released independently.
