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...

The First Chapter of THE FALSE PRINCE!

Posted by on Mar 23, 2012 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

This is Teen is hosting a look at the first chapter of THE FALSE PRINCE. Click here if you want to read it. I also want to thank the LA Times for a fabulous review of TFP this week.

If you can take a picture of the books in the wild and send it to me (, I would much appreciate it for a future blog post! Finally, I am very, very grateful to those of you who blog about the book or post reviews, but please,...

But I do have some good reasons for today’s post. One is that a lot of wonderful people have taken the trouble to write some very kind things about THE FALSE PRINCE, and I wish to acknowledge their efforts on this book’s behalf.

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...
