And the Cover and Title for Book 3….

Posted by on Jun 7, 2013 in Ascendance Trilogy, book covers, Uncategorized | 56 comments

…will be announced next THURSDAY, JUNE 13! Stay tuned!  In other news, I do get to make one other announcement, which is the publication of The Ascendance Trilogy in Simplified Chinese (Shanghai Zui), Japanese (Holp Shuppan), and Dutch (Lanoo Uitgeveriji). This makes a total of 16 territories/languages, which I think is pretty darn cool. As I see covers (such as the Spanish cover for THE RUNAWAY KING below), I’ll post them on each book’s page here. So, about that cover…any guesses for the color or for the symbol image? I’m curious if anyone might get both...

Spanish and Catalan Covers!

Posted by on Apr 23, 2012 in book covers, The False Prince | 5 comments

I’m excited today to be able to reveal two more foreign publisher covers for The False Prince! This first cover is for the Spanish version, titled El falso príncipe. The publisher is Alfaguara, and should be available on May 23, 2012! The Goodreads link is here, or you can see just the cover below. The second cover is for the Catalán version (Catalán is a language spoken in regions of France, Italy, and Spain, and is the official language of the country of Andorra, a small country bordered by Spain and France – thank you Wikipedia!), and I think this is released in the same week...

The UK Cover is Here

Posted by on Mar 30, 2012 in book covers, United Kingdom | 2 comments

I love to see what publishers abroad do with book covers that are meant to appeal to their readers. So this is the cover for Scholastic UK, where this paperback version of THE FALSE PRINCE will officially launch on June 7, 2012. I love the way this cover plays with light and shadow, and I think so much of the story is perfectly communicated in the artwork. If you want to see the Amazon UK description of the book (same as the U.S. version except for one added line), click here. Or if your best reading buddy lives somewhere in the UK, feel free to share the link with them through this tiny...

I am very excited to present the cover for Book 1 of THE INFINITY RING: A MUTINY IN TIME. This book, written by James Dashner, will be released on August 28, 2012. I’ve read it, and it’s fantastic! BUT….Blogger is being a pest for me today and nothing I try can get me to upload an image. So you can visit here at Goodreads. But it only gets better. Because it’s not only James’ twisted and brilliant mind at work. Subsequent books will be written by Carrie Ryan, Lisa McMann, Matt De LaPena, Matthew Kirby, and in some amazing bit of luck, I’ll be writing book...

BIg Announcement 1!

Posted by on Sep 29, 2011 in book covers, The False Prince | 20 comments

Big Announcement 2 is coming soon, I promise. And I’m not sure which news is the best or most exciting. So Announcement 1 and Announcement 2 aren’t in any particular order; it just makes sense chronologically. FINALLY, I can publicly announce the cover for THE FALSE PRINCE, to be released in April 2012 with Scholastic. It was done by the very impressive Tim O’Brien (who also did the cover art for Hunger Games – squee!). For me, I love this. Love it. I’m considering having the design printed onto linen so I can wrap myself up in it to sleep (Just kidding –...
