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*

NICE. I LIKE IT. I LIKE IT A LOT. I think it more accurately conveys what goes on between your covers. Congrats!

Oh whoa, looking at the high resolution image, I thought, "CryBaby!Johnny Depp?"

Okay, shallowness aside, I really do think this is great. Guess what I'm gifting my baby brother now?

For a moment I was most indignant about the slur on my manly cover model, but then I Googled. ;)

Anyway - yay! I do think that with the storm and the sword and everything it does convey Stuff! well. (I am such an eloquent writer lady.)
