It's Here! UK cover art and news from AU.

This just in - the paint's a little wet so be careful not to smudge it ;>  Cover art for SCENT OF MAGIC for the UK edition.  Which will be released 18 December 2012.

So?  What do you think?  I love the colors and there are some really neat elements.  But...white?  Not the uniform I imagined, but it's eye catching, which is what the cover art is supposed to do -get the book noticed.

If you like to read the first chapter of SCENT OF MAGIC here's a link:  http://www.mariavsnyder.com/books/som.php  I don't have it linked to my website yet - I'm working on updating my website this weekend.

Also any bloggers/reviews the ARC is up on Netgalley - you have to be approved to access it.  Please only download if you're planning to post a review - my son starts university next year ;>

For my Australian readers, I now have the cover for SCENT OF MAGIC thanks to Braiden Asciak who managed to get the cover before I did *insert mini rant here* :)

And here it is:


I also have the new TOUCH OF POWER cover.  My Australian publishers are going to re-issue TOUCH OF POWER in December 2012 and then publish SCENT OF MAGIC in January 2013.

Here's the new TOP cover for AU:


This is the original cover:



So?  What do you think of the AU covers?  I like them both - it reminds me of my Study AU books with the black background (see below).

  16. Damn, now I'm gonna have to give my copy of Touch Of Power to my sister. I cant stand a non matching set of books

  17. The new version of the aussie covers are beautiful; but I am going to have to buy a new copy of Touch of Power; its a little OC but I really prefer matching covers in a series. Still love how the covers now match the Study series.

  18. Yessssss. The cover of Fire Study was what first drew my attention to the original series, and I wasn't even aware Touch of Power had been released until my sister got the current AU copy. So glad I can get the newer covers to read, since I think they're much prettier. >:)
