Uglies Manga 2, Cover reveal

Yes, it’s time to reveal the cover of the sequel to Shay’s Story!

But first, I’m doing two appearances in the near future, one in the real world and one online.

The first will be a chat on I’ll be chatting with Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan, co-authors of the upcoming book, Team Human. We’ll be discussing collaborations in general, and what it’s like for experienced novelists to work with other writers.

I don’t have a link yet, but it will happen at 8PM US Eastern Time on Sunday, July 8.

My second set of appearances will be at Comic Con. The panels aren’t set yet, but I will have a signing on Sunday:

San Diego Comic Con
Sunday July 15th
Autograph area AA09 in the Sails Pavilion

Lots of other writers will be at this signing, but I’ll reveal those details later. Also, I will probably have another signing on a different day. Stay tuned.

So, without further ado, here’s the cover to Uglies: Cutters . . .

Hope you like it.

  1. Ahh first comment. I LOVE te new cover art. Can’t wait for it to come out! I wish I lived even remotely close to San Diego to go to Comic Con though ):

  2. This looks incredible! I can’t wait to read it! I just checked out comic con cause I live a few hours away. It’s sold out. 🙁 So sad! You should make a stop in Las Vegas to meet your fans here! Like me!

  3. I had no idea you were going to be at Comic Con! I had to choose between Comic Con and Anime Expo for a trip this summer and I would have totally picked Comic Con if I knew you were going. 🙁

  4. That cover’s totes icy, Scott-la. But is that Zane and Shay? Or Zane and Tally? I’m not very into the title, though.

  5. That’s an awesome cover, but I can’t tell who’s on it exactly.
    I do live remotely-ish close to San Diego, but it’s still pretty far away. I probably won’t be able to go to Comic-Con. @2: Sold out? Then definitely not. 🙁

  6. EVERYTHING IS WRONG WITH THAT COVER!!!!!!! she’s not even scary at all… she looks like a little girl dressed up for halloween. and i thought that the cutters had black eyes???!!!! her cheeckbones arent nearly high enouh either… but i suppose i have the general idea of manga to blame for that. also: who’s the dude? looks like Pretty Zane to me!
    we get art reveals from this one too right? i’m super excited!!!!

  7. @11 Well this is them as Pretties, not Specials.

    I’m guessing it’s Shay and Zane? They both look like bubbleheads, it’s perfect! Although aren’t Shay’s eyes gray/silver? Still, beautiful cover Scott-la.

  8. @12 i just realized, you’re totally right. boy, i feel like an idiot. and yeah: you’re right again, shay’s eyes are green and silver WITH EYE CLOCKS!!!! WHERE ARE THE EYES CLOCKS??? i guess this is pre-surge.
    The cover looks kinda intimate… anyone think there’ll be some sort of shay/zane romance? we already seen that with shay and david…

  9. Yay!! Finally I have a use for my figment account!
    The cover’s pretty awesome too…


  11. *clears throat* Ahem. Sorry about that last comment. I really need to calm down. EXEPT I TOTALLY CAN’T!!!!! AUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!!! OH MY OH MY OHMYGOSH!!!!!!!
    …yeah. Sorry again.

  12. Can you come to Redwood City Scott-la? Pretty please? IT WOULD BE SOOOO BOGUS IF YOU DIDN’T! Pleeaase?

  13. Oh, my figment account has come into use! Yes! AHAHAHAHA AND I live in San Diego! AHAHAHAHA But Comic Con is always a jumble :/
    Oh wells! I still have the power of Figment!

  14. How very pretty-making!!!

    (see what I did there? Now that I read the series I can do that. Score)

    I was telling my friend that you were my favorite author and she said that she had MET YOU!!! Because you had WENT TO HER SCHOOL when she lived in Virginia on your BEHEMOTH TOUR!
    But then I realized that I know someone that met you and then that made me feel good.

  16. I love that cover. I pictured the cutters’ hair just like that!
    I cant wait to read the book!

  17. Hold on. I see what you did there!
    The cover for Uglies has a girl (Tally?) looking from behind some plant. The cover for Shay’s Story has Shay looking from behinds some sort of cloth. The cover for Pretties has a pretty boy and girl (Tally and Zane?). The cover for Cutters has a pretty boy and girl (Shay and Zane).
    or maybe i’m just being too observant…

  18. Wait a minute…
    By reading Mia’s comment, I’m beginning to feel like there are THREE mangas: Shay’s story, Pretties, AND Cutters. But at first I thought there were only two: Shay’s story and Cutters. WHAT IS GOING ON HERE????

  19. Oh, never mind, I get what Mia means.
    Tally looking from behind plant=Shay looking from behing cloth
    Pretty Tally&Zane=Pretty Shay&Zane
    So there are only two mangas, like I first thought.
    Yeah, I know, epic fail.

  20. alright guys. i need some help.
    so i drew this picture of Deryn in my sketchbook, and i really really want to send it to scott as a Fan art!! but i have no idea how!
    like i said, its in my sketchbook, so what is the best way to take a picture of it to send????
    thanks so much to anyone who can help!

  21. @YOLO I think there will be three mangas. Shay starts the Cutters when she’s pretty, so this one (Cutters) might just be about the Cutters back in their pretty days. I got confused with the title too 😛

  22. @32-Why don’t you scan the picture? It’s less blurry than a picture, and it will go right to your computer.

  23. This is my impression of Tally and David texting each other:
    Tally: Hey David! What are u havin 4 dinner?
    David: Spagbol
    Tally: EEW 🙁 🙁 🙁
    David: LOL JK 😀
    Tally: U r so mean!!! 🙁

  24. Yay, it is on Sunday again. One of the two days I got tickets for (Thursday and Sunday, for the second year in a row).

    I shall have to get Goliath autographed to complete the set.

  25. Oh my God! I totally loved the first manga and we’re already seeing the next one! Do we get to see Shay as a cutter than! I’m totally ready to see that! I’ve always pictured them with flash tattoos all over their face and their teeth filled with fangs and their irises completely black! OMG

  26. @32: scan the picture or put the camera and the picture both on level surfaces (Like a tripod, If you have one) and there should be way less blur

  27. Blisters! I don’t even live within 500 miles of San Diego! Oh well, Scott would have to sign my Nook, ’cause that’s where I have the whole Leviathan trilogy…

  28. ok, i haven’t been online in ages, but when does Cutters come out??? and i think the reason it’s called Cutters is becayse Shay started the Cutters in Pretties.


  30. Okay so i don’t get it… Is it Shay-la and Zane or Tally and Zane or what?
    Plus Shay-la has Red hair i thought…
    There on ebay seriously is a packet of SpagBol sooo funny
