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*

Really? Sin's going to be on the cover even though Mae's the narrator?

Yes. S&S really liked the Sin model, and they felt it was easier to make Sin dynamic as she's the dancer, and she can represent the increased presence of the Goblin Market, and this way we might have Alan on the cover of book three, to bookend the series nicely with both the brothers. Not up to me, but their reasoning seems sound!

Ahhh, okay. I'm not complaining as long as it's pretty and fits your series, and I'm really excited about an Alan cover. :D So is it just going to be a trilogy?

Such is my cunning plan!

Ohhhhhh so this is what you meant by Sin being on the cover. I kinda assumed that she was sharing covertime with Mae. Oh wow I'm more excited about the cover now.
