Here's what's going on at A Backwards Story!
Or go here to get involved!
Last week, Alethea Kontis stopped by for an interview to talk about HERO, ENCHANTED, and upcoming books.
Check out last year's review of ENCHANTED!
So... You've all probably seen the cover for HERO by now. If not, it looks like this:
Her publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, has been hard at work on a series redesign. As beautiful as the covers for ENCHANTED and HERO have been,
(And if you don't remember what ENCHANTED looks like, here:)
they think the new design will sell a lot more copies.
Are you ready to see the new design?
Okay, no, you've got me....that ISN'T the new cover.
But I had to get a joke in on the blog SOMEWHERE today, right?
It would be kind of cool if we had Alethea's own handiwork as a cover, though.
No, here's the REAL new cover:
And it's illustrated now instead of with a model! I always like the talent behind illustrated covers.
They're keeping the green dress, too, and I really want to know what's going on in this scene, don't you? I think they must be going for the manga crowd with this new design, how about you? At the moment, I miss the originals, but these will grow on me over time, I'm sure!
They're still working on the re-design for ENCHANTED, but should be revealing it on Alethea's blog soon...possibly even during FTF if we're lucky!
So what are your thoughts on the new cover?
