Ta da! After weeks of not being able to share it, finally, may I present to you:
Isn't just beautiful and fabulous! This is the American cover for my book, done by the incredibly talented John Rocco, and you must go visit his site right away to look at his other work because, well trust me, it's worth it. Anyway, I love how Alex (who is supposed to look like a boy, but isn't one) looks like a boy but obviously isn't one. I love the gleam on the sword, the sea and sky behind her. My little old ladies look so awesome, and my two gents genuinely creepy.
I am super excited about the whole thing. Of course best of all is just seeing my name at the bottom of everything. That just totally blows my mind.
I am still eagerly awaiting the UK cover, for which I have seen some really cool sketches, and am really excited about it because it looks like the artist will be drawing a whole host of characters (I've always felt that the book was more about the people Alex meets on the way than the actual story). So stay tuned . . .
(. . . seriously, isn't it just so cool!)
