ARE YOU READY FOR THE PRETTY?
Look at Rory! Look at the way she's staring out at you! You don't know whether to give her a big hug or challenge her to a duel. The expression on their faces is just absolutely perfect!! The artist, Cory Loftis, did a fantastic job.
Now look at it again:
You betcha. :-P
Excuse the poor camera work. It's mine. (But it's not from my cameraphone!)
This is not the finished book, by the way. My fantastic editor Courtney sent me cover proofs, which arrived yesterday, and I just wrapped one around another book to get an idea of what it will look like.
AND ISN'T IT SO PRETTY???
After that, I might even have carried it around the house and set it up beside me, pretending it was the finished book. I possibly may have told it, "Hey, booky-book" a few times and waved. I mean, allegedly. I confess nothing.
And now, look at the wide view:
Do you SEE the dragon? Do you see the pretty pretty spine? Do you see all the lovely details Chloë Foglia at S&S BFYR added??? SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
The cover makes me so SO happy. It's just...epic. Words are failing me with the amount of joy gushing through me right now. *pets cover*
Oh, and guess what?
According to S&S Canada and Amazon, I have a RELEASE DATE!!!
The Ever Afters: Of Giant and Ice comes out July 24, 2012!!
Yep, this is the day of the happy dance. Who am I kidding? This is the WEEK of the happy dance! :-P
