Cover Reveal for Warren the 13th!

It’s here! The final cover for WARREN THE 13TH AND THE ALL-SEEING EYE is finally out in the open! Will designed a ton of fantastic cover possibilities over the last couple months (as he does), but this is the one that everyone loved best. I think it’s beautiful – it captures both the elegant Victorian aesthetic as well as the creepy, fun, and adventurous side of the book. It will look even better in person – word on the street is that there will be foil on the cover!

I also got a chance to see all the final art for the interior and Will did a knockout job on everything! With every step this book feels more more real…and more surreal. Check out this sample spread:

It reminds me of a tarot card. Hmm… Warren the 13th tarot… there’s an idea! Seriously though, Will and I keep brainstorming all kinds of crazy and fun things to promote Warren with. Hopefully we’ll be able to make some of them a reality.

In other news, I’m getting ready to attend the ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco this weekend. I’ll be participating on a GraphicCon diversity panel on gender and comics (Friday at 12:15 at the Moscone Convention Center 3010 W), so if you’re at the conference, I hope to see you there!

I’ll also be taking part in an author speed-dating event where I’ll be pitching Warren to a bunch of librarians. I wanted to come up with something special to leave behind with each librarian I speak to (and woo them with), so I’ve been constructing little “invitations” to the Warren Hotel, complete with a room key, hotel newsletter, and bookmarks.  I even bought a “W” wax seal to seal the envelopes with. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve always wanted a wax seal, I just never had a real reason to own one. But now I do and I can get all Game of Thrones up in here!

Well, that’s it for now. I’ll post an update after the conference and let you all know how it went! 🙂
