US paperback cover.


I have just seen the lovely new US paperback cover of The Sound of Butterflies on the Barnes and Noble website, so I am taking that as the go-ahead to share it on my blog. It is to be released early November, under the Harper Perennial imprint, just in time for my trip to Portland, Oregon for the Wordstock festival. I think it's gorgeous - one of my favourites. Harpercollins US have also updated their website so all their authors get a new page (or series of pages). Mine is here.

That's a stunning cover! Your author page is great, and fab that they highlight your blog.

Ooh, pretty. :)

Why don't you take a screenshot of the page and cut it to size in MS Paint? I know it's a clumsy way of doing it; but if you can't save it any other way, it works!

Ruth said...

OK, I just did it myself and put the picture on my blog, so you should be able to copy it off there pretty easily. :)

That cover is beautiful! Very evocative.

You're going to Portland? I'm so envious. Quite apart from Wordstock, which is amazing, it has the best vintage stores in the country!

Thanks ruth, I remembered that I just need to drag the picture onto my desktop to copy it. Easy peasy!

Rachael King said...

uh-oh! Vintage clothing? Really? Can you show me where some are? That's dangerous. Best take me credit card.

Beautiful cover Rachael - congratulations, you must have the most beautiful collection of covers for your novel, I hope you have them displayed somewhere gorgeous, all that great cover art looks like it should be on a wall.

It's lovely Rachael, but I still prefer the NZ cover - that dramatic contrast of light on dark, and then depths in the dark.

I thought is made the book stand out on the bookshelf.

I hope the book sells really well in the States. (And it is still a great cover).

It must be so exciting, Rachael, seeing another incarnation of your book and knowing a whole other country is going to get to read it. My warmest congrats to you. And your author page is amazing -- complete with a link to your blog. If only all publishers did the same eh?
