That’s right, folks. The time has come–I’m allowed to share with you the cover for Vodnik. (No–that’s not the cover at the top of this story. That’s Twilight. But you knew that, didn’t you? Scroll down for my cover. Which is way cooler than apples and hands.) Seeing this and having it announced over on Tu Books’ site has made the book seem that much more real to me. It’s nice that after all this work, everything’s coming together so well. I saw the maps for the book yesterday, and they’re looking great, too. This is going to be a really slick looking piece of literature. Very exciting times.
Anyway–here she be. Tomas, Trencin Castle, Lil’ Reaper T-Shirt, Hands on Fire, and the Vodnik Statue hiding in the clouds. (That’s my son’s favorite part–he thought that was really cool once he noticed it, though I’d seen it right away.)
Having had some input on the cover as it went along, I must say I was impressed by how much work goes into it–mock ups, photo shoots, endless debate. In the end, I’m really happy with it. I think it does a great job representing a lot of what the book is about. It’s exciting and mysterious, and it catches the eye. At least, I think it does.
What do you all think?
March 2012 keeps getting closer!
