DREAMS OF GODS & MONSTERS -- UK COVER!



At last! At last! This feels like the final piece of the puzzle. 

The UK cover for DREAMS OF GODS & MONSTERS!

Isn't it gorgeous? Thank you, Hodder & Stoughton, for always coming up with such beauty! And there's more. Such fun! The secret signings I've been referring to? Here they are. Well, the first wave of them, anyway:





3000 signed title pages! 3000 might not look like so many, sitting there all innocent like that, but they took a while to sign. But it was a good while! It was just what my poor fried brain needed, in fact: a mindless activity that I could do while catching up on some movie watching. It was some kind of luxury. I watched a French movie, a German movie (reading subtitles while signing!), some episodes of some shows, a Bette Davis movie, a bad dance movie (but set in London, so bonus), Stuck in Love (which was cute and is about writers so bonus that too), and I don't even know what else. It was a fugue. 

So. These signed titled pages also have an illustration of Karou by me. It looks like this: 





These are currently en route back to the UK where they will be bound into 3000 copies of DREAMS OF GODS & MONSTERS. The first 3000 pre-orders of the UK edition of DREAMS OF GODS & MONSTERS will get this limited edition. Fun! After that, it will be just a normal title page, so pre-order now to get one of these!






"Our hands are our enemies even if we aren't." 

A quote from DREAMS. First sneak peek :-)


(For those of you in the US and Canada, there will be some special editions available here too. I'll show you what those are in a couple of weeks!)

Oh, and look what came today! The US paperback of DAYS OF BLOOD & STARLIGHT! 




It'll be out February 25th, and it has some chapters of DREAMS in it.




Yippeee!!!

I went just today to get the "Days of blood and starlight" from our local library and I can't wait to get started! I read the first one, "Daughter of Smoke and Bone" in three days (whit school, teachers didn't like it) and I just get the same book addict which I have only when I read really REALLY amazing stories.
So thank you for making my life better whit every word, greetings from Finland!
