Some of you may have been surprised to see the Bloodrose cover appear on some blogs lately. I was surprised, too! So was Penguin!
The cover wasn't supposed to be revealed until July but through a computer glitch it was sent early to Amazon, so of course Amazon put it up. And I am seriously impressed by how quickly Nightshade fans found the cover! You guys are so on top of stuff!! It's fabulous!
This wasn't anyone's fault and I'm not upset - maybe a little disappointed as revealing a cover is super fun. Now it's a little like finding out a surprise party is being thrown for you. It's wonderful that the party is happening and so many people went to the trouble to plan it, but now the surprise is spoiled.
Surprise or no, the Bloodrose cover is stupendous and I'm thrilled that I can now officially post it here!
The cover depicts a very specific scene in the book and I love the way the photo captures that moment!
In addition to the cover reveal, I have some AMAZING news. Since the Nightshade series' covers have been redesigned Penguin knows that many of you would like to have a matching set for the series. So they've printed a limited number of the new Nightshade jackets that you can put on your hardcover and all your books will match!
The jackets are being mailed out on a first come, first served basis. Send your request, including your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm sorry to international readers but this is a US only offer since it regards the US cover redesign
Please note: the jackets are being shipped by Penguin, so don't email your request to me as it won't get to the right people.
