cover reveal!

I have something awesome to share! And I’m not going to draw out the announcement, because I’ve been waiting for this moment longer than anyone. So here it is:


If you read the book, you’ll realize just how perfect this is. Pyr has a well-earned reputation for its stunning book covers, and I think this one is really special. Granted, I’m not exactly impartial, but the illustration is beautiful and bold and different, and I can’t wait to see it on the hardcover.

I was thrilled when I heard Sam Weber would be the cover artist; I’ve admired his work for a long time, especially his wonderful art for the Ender’s Game e-book. Major thanks to him and Lou Anders for giving Fair Coin such a brilliant cover.

And now I can also reveal that Fair Coin is scheduled to be released in March 2012, and it’s available for pre-order from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and directly from Pyr.

      Thanks! It’s sad that so much of the publication process does feel like a lottery, but I certainly can’t complain about the outcome. It may have taken a while, but I’ve been fortunate every step of the way.
