Wow, it's been a crazy three weeks, but I've had an awesome time touring the blogosphere at some fantastic authors, readers and librarians. So, a huge thank you to all concerned, and if you missed the dates, I've included them at the end of this post.
Now for the good stuff. Today is the cover reveal for the print cover. You might want to know why I am running with two publishers. Well, it's simple. Wordsmack here in South Africa is primarily a digital publisher, and they've been responsible for getting The Guardian's Wyrd into a bunch of different digital platforms, especially related to mobile technology, which is one of the reasons why I was so keen to work with them.
The print version, however, will be handled by Dark Continents Publishing, and my awesome team there (so, a big thank you to Sylvia, Tracie and David). So, keep following me for updates related to release dates etc.
Once again, I've had the honour of working with the highly talented South African illustrator Daniël Hugo, who has developed the uncanny ability to read my mind. I reckon he's done a fantastic job connecting with Jay and Rowan, don't you think? Then a big thanks goes to Icy Sedgwick, who handled the cover design.
