Elliot and the Goblin War Cover

Okay, so my geek senses are firing. I LOVE the cover for Book 1: Elliot and the Goblin War. Many, many thanks to the illustrator, Gideon Kendall, who I’ve decided is completely brilliant! And many thanks to my editor at Sourcebooks, Dan Ehrenhaft, for finding Gideon and for his guidance in creating this cover.

Book 1 will be released this October. No dates announced yet for books 2 and 3, although since I know the plots and characters, my heart is already pattering for what those covers will look like.
By the way, the book is also up at Amazon (without the cover yet, but that’ll come). The tiny URL is: http://tinyurl.com/ye72odo. Things are really beginning to happen for this book, and I couldn’t be more excited!


  1. Wow. What a fabulous cover! I’m in awe.

  2. Jen, that is just spectacular!! You must be thrilled–and I hear you on the pitterpat over the sequels! 😀

  3. I’d buy your book based on that cover. I don’t even think I’d have to read the jacket. It’s that awesome!

  4. Omigosh, what a brilliant cover! I’d be contacting the artist and trying to buy the original painting. Seriously.

  5. Hi Jen,

    Thanks for coming to Rick’s Publishing class the other day. I learned a lot from the experiences you shared!

  6. Thanks, Judy. I had a terrific time and thought I must have learned a good deal more than I shared. But I will have big news to share very soon. I’ll let Rick know in case he wants to share it with your class.
