The Demon's Lexicon

Oh, you guys. Oh, you guys, I am so terrified.

So rejacketing a book is a very scary thing, because a) It means the whole series look has been totally changed! So the two sequels are going to look this way and b) It seems people did not like the old cover - oh please please please let them like this one!

I feel exceedingly lucky to have a lovely publisher, Simon & Schuster, who did not just say 'Oh well, Sarah RB, clearly a bust, next please' but who hired The Illustrious James Porto to make new covers for me.

And I feel even more lucky that when I went peeping to them with suggestions, and to my friends for thoughts, my publishers and friends both listened. (Which publishers in no way have to do. If they wanted a purple spacemonkey on my cover, they could have one no matter what I said! They are just very kind.) Especial thanks go to my friend Saundra Mitchell, whose artistic input was invaluable.

And this new cover is very different and dynamic and dramatic! And I think it has the feel of the book down, and - well, I will leave you to JUDGE FOR YOURSELVES.

In short, I hope you guys like it! *closes eyes and presses post*

eh...All though I think this cover conveys Nick's character in the book better I have to say that I like the cover I have much more. It's shiny, and rainbow, and I loves it like ice cream!

Well, then I am very glad you have it. ;) Ice cream is delicious!

Much better! :D I just read the book two days ago, after Robin McKinley recommended it. I am now in the process of rereading. Seriously, your book is great. I love the style, the characters, and the plot. But the cover....no. That model looks like he's wearing lipstick. Does Nick wear lipstick? No. Ergo, model=not Nick. Actually it's kind of nice to have that clear, because I don't really like having a face on the cover that's a) clearly visible and b) supposed to be one of the characters. So when the cover picture is impossible to associate with *any* of the characters, it becomes a non-issue. But I really prefer this new cover, because it refrains from implying that the hero is one of those sexy soonjung-manhwa-boys who always wear lipstick. Seriously, the heroes of Korean girls' comics usually look like that. v_v And.....I don't like it. So I usually stick to the Japanese ones. :p

Ahem. Back on topic. I LOVE YOUR BOOK, and look forward to the next one. And the next one. And the next. :D Because your writing is wonderful.
