New North American cover!

I know, I know, I wasn’t going to post this week. I was going to ensconce myself in my Chamber of Clandestine Composition and work until my fingers bled (and believe me, that’s what I’ve been doing). However, I have news so exciting it couldn’t wait. I had to bust out and tell you (also: get myself a cup of tea. Composing clandestinely is thirsty work!).

It’s the new cover, darlings. Here it is!

When you see it in shops, it will have the Morris sticker on it too!

So it turns out, ha ha, the new edition is coming out earlier than anticipated (in the US, anyway) because shops are running out of the older edition. These have already shipped, and shops will be putting them out soon. If you dearly love the original cover (and I do, so I understand that), your time to find those may be limited. I merely mention the fact.

I don’t know what the schedule is for the changeover in Canada. I do know that Canada is planning to re-jacket on the original book; the bonus material will be available online from Random House Canada (link provided on the jacket flap). Once those all sell, the next printing will have the bonus material inside. When I learn any more details, I’ll let you know.

So there you have it, bright and festive, new but not unrecognizably so. I like it a lot, particularly the new font, and that S that looks like a little dragon in its own right.

All right! Back to work with me!

    While I am sad to hear stores are running out of the older edition (its cover is downright gorgeous), I have to agree about the S, and I’m adoring the purple background. But: “Includes a bonus story”?! Wouldn’t happen to be The Audition, would it?

  4. This is an extraordinary book. The pleasure it’s giving me is hard to put into words, but the result of my attempts to do so is my blog post today: http://goo.gl/5pH4w

    I’m *thrilled* to hear that stores are running out of the original edition on principle. New cover/printings = sales. On the other hand, as nice as this cover is, the one on earlier printings still feels like the “real” one to me. We should all have such dilemmas. Congratulations!
