A Wicked Cover!

>> Friday, December 14, 2007

It's official! I couldn't post this when I got it because it hadn't gone through the final approval process, but now it has. Meet the wicked awesome cover for Something Wicked! (Click on the image to see it larger.)

The new cover keeps the same great design from the first book, Something Rotten, while incorporating new faces--Mac and his girlfriend Beth:













And since this is based on "the Scottish play" and set at a Scottish Highland Festival, we also get that great tartan blue! (A Macduff tartan? I'll have to check.) Love the way the blue tartan becomes the mountain sky on the back cover too. Genius! This one takes place on a mountaintop near Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee--hence the picturesque backdrop this time.

In lieu of the little skull on Something Rotten's cover we get a new icon here too--a sgian dubh, or short Scottish dagger. Wait, this means I'll have to get a new stamp made! I'm going to have to buy one of those carousels bookkeepers use to hold all their check stamps.

I'm totally thrilled with this cover, and the whole look of the series. Special thanks to editor Liz and cover designer Emilian Gregory for making it happen!
