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.
Here in the USA we celebrate Thanksgiving and reflect on what we are thankful for. I've a long list, but one of the main things I'm very thankful for are my readers! They rock! They've given me such joy over the years! So I'm doing a Thanksgiving Give Away Extravaganza of 6 books! This is for my readers so I've put in questions so I know you're a reader and not some random person hoping to win a book. These give aways are open to ALL!!
The countdown has begun and there's about a month and a half until my latest book, Navigating the Stars is published! To celebrate, I'm giving away 2 advance reading copies (ARCs) and 12 custom book labels that I will sign and personalize for you to place in your copy.
The give away is open to ALL! It ends on Halloween - October 31. Check out the Rafflecopter form below to enter.
The book will be published in Australia and New Zealand on November 19, 2018. Isn't the cover gorgeous? There will be an audio book available in AU/NZ as well, narrated by the lovely Eloise Oxer.
I'm also independently publishing the book in the US, Canada, and the UK on December 1, 2018. I don't have cover art yet (or links -but they're coming soon), but Josh Durham is working on it - he also did the cover art for the Australian edition. And the fabulous Gabra Zackman is narrating the audio book.
Here are some pre-order links for the AU/NZ edition:
Are they the Study Series or the Glass Series or the Soulfinder Series or perhaps the Chronicles of Ixia?? There's been lots of confusion over the names and lots of questions coming my way over the reading order. So I'm posting the definitive AUTHOR recommended list of the books and short stories in reading order from first to last (covers are current USA print editions):
ICE STUDY (short story - http://www.mariavsnyder.com/IceStudy.php)
NIGHT STUDY (January 26, 2016)
DAWN STUDY (forthcoming February 28, 2017)
No cover art yet!
I hope this helps :).
