Welcome to my new-look site, now with 100% more blog!
First things first: This just in from my editor at HarperCollins, the rough cover of Midnighters 3: Blue Noon!
Like all the covers for this series, it’s really great. I think it’s cool to finally see Jessica on the front cover, up close and with long red ponytail flying, but blurry enough not to upset any mental images of her. I’m also glad to see that she’s dressed to move. Actually, she looks pretty together.
Notice we don’t have a cover quote yet, just a space for one. Any ideas who I can get one from? All my favors were used up getting Ursula Le Guin and Garth Nix to blurb the first two. Bless them.
One note on these covers: The first one had the clock set to 12:05, the second to 11:55, and this one is dead-on midnight. Does anyone know what this means? Not me. Also, the color scheme went from blue to orange to purple. Turns out that this last color makes a lot of sense for this book. But that’s all I’m saying, lest I engage in spoilage.
I will, however, be posting an excerpt from Blue Noon in early 2006.
Hope you enjoy the new site and my occasional blogging. There’s a lot of information about my next novel, Peeps, which is about vampires and set in contemporary New York. Uglies fans will find an interview with me about the series that I did for Check Your Pulse newsletter. Another big new feature is News, which has a potted history of my entire career. (Future biographers take note.)
Special thanks to Justine for all her webmistress work. All the weird inconsistencies are my fault, I assure you.
That is all for now. Hope you guys like it.
