Ever since the cover of SWORD AND VERSE went live this past Thursday, I have been blown away by the response it has gotten!
Haven’t seen the cover yet? Well, here it is in all its glory:
Be sure to go check out the cover reveal post at YA Books Central for an interview with the talented artist behind the cover, Colin Anderson, and to enter to win a signed Advanced Reading Copy of the book or this beautiful custom-made necklace from Lady Twilight’s Artistic Creations:
The drawing will be open through July 25, so go enter today!
…because its cover is AWESOME.
The cover of SWORD AND VERSE is ready for its close-up. Head over to YA Books Central to see the beautiful thing, read an interview with the artist, and enter to win some cool prizes! Then comment there, here, on Twitter, on Facebook, by carrier pigeon, via smoke signals, or whatever, and let me know what you think!
SWORD AND VERSE’s journey to publication takes a big step tomorrow, when the cover will be revealed to the world over at YA Books Central, complete with an interview with the artist and a couple of cool giveaways. I cannot wait to share the cover with you all. It is, frankly, beautiful, and evokes so much about the book that I hope readers will love.
Tomorrow morning, in the lead-up to the big reveal, I will be counting down my favorite YA Fantasy Book Covers on Twitter starting at 8AM. This list is completely subjective and consists of books that I love, that have fantastic covers, and that have covers that clearly evoke the story. (Three guesses what my all-time favorite will be…)
Thank you for joining me on this journey, and I can’t wait to introduce you to the cover of SWORD AND VERSE!
SWORD AND VERSE has a publication date! It will be available in hardcover and e-book on January 19, 2016 and is already available for pre-order at the links below.
But my favorite part of the pre-order pages is this:
“Fascinating and unique. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.”
