I have some VERY exciting news today!! First of all I'm thrilled to tell you that NIGHTSHADE is now an international best seller!!! (Thank you, France!)
Coming on the heels of that announcement I'm psyched to share yet more fabulous news:
NIGHTSHADE will be available in paperback this June AND features a new cover!
Penguin decided to try out a fresh take on NIGHTSHADE for the paperback release and I absolutely love it. I also loved the original cover, but I think the new cover truly embodies the novel and depicts Calla so perfectly. When I was first mulling over NIGHTSHADE I came across a poem by Margaret Atwood (one of my favorite authors)* and was struck by its first stanza:
Not you I fear, but that other
She who can walk through flesh
Queen of the two dimensions
These lines reflected the essence of Calla and were the inspiration for this new cover. I love it!
The response to the new NIGHTSHADE cover as it was previewed was so positive that Penguin has decided to makeover the series with this new theme. Squee!!! Thus I'm also able to share....
NEW WOLFSBANE COVER!!
I am enthralled by how powerful Calla is in this image and the way she resembles a wolf silhouetted by the moon is exquisite. Calla would love this cover (as would Ren and Shay *cough*).
Thanks to all the talent at Penguin for giving my books such wonderful covers!!! I can't wait to see them on the books!!
The poem is in this collection by Margaret Atwood.
