Silksinger cover -- revealed!

He heeee! Look at this. Awesome, no?
Meet Hirik and Whisper! Soon you will have a chance to get to know them, and of course to see Magpie and Talon again too. And the crows. Perhaps even a certain unpleasant imp will make an appearance . . .

The Silksinger ARC (Advance Reader's Copy) is going to the printer tomorrow! Yay!!! Stay tuned here in the coming month or two. There just might be a giveaway. (Actual pub date is September.)

Beautiful art by the fabulous Jim Di Bartolo, of course!

Gorgeous! I love how both Magpie and Whisper are blindingly beautiful in a grown up sort of way, or at least not a childish way, without any pushy sexiness. And I like the cutlass. Is is a cutlass? Or a saber?

And what are they bracing for? It must be somtehing bad.. I love it when a cover poses questions. Well done, Jim! And well done you, for seeing your 'baby' off to print.

Now for some cake, since you can't have wine.

Oh I love the cover and can't wait to be able to read it. September seems such a long wait but I know it will be worth it.

If I hadn't been in a (quite) public computer lab, I probably would have "squeed." So exciting!

GORGEOUS! I cannot wait! Ooh, there's going to be some awesome fight scenes, I can just see it. And that Whisper...she looks powerful, even though she's huddled and has teeny wings. I smell a secret!

Lovely!

Jehsyka said...

Well, move over Brett Helquest!
That cover is gorgeous, beautiful, awe-imspiring, eye grabbing, absolutely wonderful and mystical! Jim SO rocks and when my first novel is accepted for publishing I'm giving him a call right away to do my cover!

Cat said...

This is a fabulous cover! And I can not wait for the book - I am so happy to find out that there will be a sequel to BLACKBRINGER because I loved that book so much!

Looking forward to September now. ;)

So pretty and dangerous looking! It totally captures the essence of the book!

Oooooh! How beautiful! Whisper looks like such a different faerie from Magpie. Congratulations to both (all three!!!) of you! xo

Jim Di Bartolo said...

Hey everybody! I just wanted to pipe in and give a HUGE heartfelt "THANK YOU!!" for the wonderfully kind words -- it means so much!

And rest assured that the story in SILKSINGER is every bit as good as BLACKBRINGER -- and possibly (it's tough to say!) even better. I freaking LOVE IT! (Great job Sweetie!)

Warmly,
Jim
