New Looks for My Glass Series + Give Aways


 
Yes, that's right, my Glass series is getting a new look in both the United States/Canada and the United Kingdom. 

The new US/Canada editions are not quite brand new.  As you can see, the covers are the ones used on the Australian editions a few years ago (which I love since Opal looks just like I imagined her!).  But the size is new.  The Glass books will be printed as mass market sized paperbacks and cost $7.99.  STORM GLASS is coming out next Tuesday, July 30th, SEA GLASS will be out September 24, and SPY GLASS will be released on October 29.  I'm excited about it and hope the new covers and price will attract new readers :)


 
 

 
I did an interview about these new releases with The Reading Frenzy.  Here's a link: http://thereadingfrenzy.blogspot.com/2013/07/interview-with-nyt-bestselling-author.html
 
And below are the very brand new covers for the Glass books in the United Kingdom. These were designed to match the new editions of the Study books the UK released back in June (these also used the Australian covers).  To see the new UK Study books go here: http://www.mariavsnyder.com/news.php  The new UK Glass books will all be released in September and are truly unique! 


 
 
 
 
To celebrate all these new editions of the Glass series, I'm giving away 4 copies of the new US/Canada edition of STORM GLASS to 4 random commenters on my blog or Facebook posts (open to ALL).  If commenting on my blog, please include your email address so I can contact you.  Post by July 31th to be entered to win!

What do you think about the new editions?

  2. These are awesome. I remember the day I first picked up Storm Glass at the library! It was a great decision.

    It is great to see the new covers. Bring us a new trilogy of Ixia and Sitia!

  5. I love the new US covers, since my own copies of the series are different sizes I had intended to replace them to buy same sized books, I'm glad I waited so long as I can buy all the new UK covers now.

    Is the rest of the series going to be this style covers when released?

    1. I believe the Study series are not getting new cover art - at least I haven't heard, but I should be talking to my editor soon and if there's any news I'll post it.

    2. Is there anywhere to get the Glass series and Fire Study in hardcover? I found Poison and Magic Study in HC but no luck with the others. As long as they are in English, I would be very happy.I have them on audio as well and just finished them...again.

  10. I really hope that these new covers will help you reach out to more readers, because you deserve it! Hopefully they will be translated into more languages, like norwegian (so my friends who doesn't like reading books in english also can enjoy your books!)
    I truly love your books, and the study series is by far my favourite book series (in hard competition with the healer series)

    And by the way, these covers are gooood ;)

  50. A few years back my sister introduced me to Poison Study. I fell in love with it instantly and was ecstatic to hear that there was a spin off series. I love the semi new cover because that was how I first saw and read it.

    I actually meant to write to you about this but kept forgetting, so....I'll just comment on here (and enter the giveaway)! :) One of the absolute best things I loved about this series what the love interests. So many times in books this is the format: main character girl falls in love with a perfect male, then the author introduces another male to try to win her, but the main character female doesn't fall for him so despite all the many books worth of drama, she stays with the first guy. :) So anyway, thanks for not doing that with these books! I don't want to say any names in case of spoilers--but thanks for writing a main character with an "open" mind and heart, who can forgive and choose someone else (rather than the first guy she meets)! Phew...sorry for that long paragraph! :) My email is: joykatie20022002@yahoo.com

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed the story and the aspect of redemption and forgiveness. I really don't like love triangles and I struggled to write these books because I didn't want a love triangle, but the one character just wouldn't go away quietly! And, well, sometimes a writer has to let the character take the lead - and in that case, I always end up in a really interesting place :)
