Like you guys, I loved the cover for HERO. Loved it. Here is is again. The dragons are my favorite part:
As far as we were all concerned, this was the final cover. It is the cover of the ARC (or so I’ve been told). And then yesterday, my awesometastic editor emailed to tell me that a Professional Calligrapher (sweet job, right?) put her hand to gussying up the border around the title to make it a bit…romantic. To match Enchanted.
Here’s what it looks like now:
GORGEOUS, right? Look closely. The dragons are still there. I really wasn’t sure I could love this cover more. And yet, I do. I didn’t realize there was something missing until I saw this.
It looks especially good next to Enchanted.
Of course, now that I’ve made about 1000 postcards and magnets and banners and, yes, even an iPhone 4 case, I should probably be a little annoyed. For something so lovely, it’s really tough to stay mad.
So if you have any of that promotional material — you now have limited edition items. BONUS SWAG!
As for that iPhone 4 case…I think perhaps I’ll add it to one of the Goodreads Giveaways, since those went over so well last year with Enchanted. What do you guys think?
