The final cover artwork has landed and is out in the world:
I absolutely adore the typography and the ticket stub/circus poster peeking from the top to show my name (my name!) and my title (my title!). I think it works really well and is so striking.
The cover has been making the rounds today. I’ve collected the links below.
The first unveiling was at the infamous Book Smugglers. They’re one of my favourite blogs and I’ve been following them for about 6 months. They are also running a giveaway for two ARCs of Pantomime! So please go over and enter if you’re interested in winning an advance peek at my book.
Tor.com have also unveiled the cover and put up a two chapter excerpt! This was another bit of awesome–I’ve been following their blog for years.
Cuddlebuggery put up three alternate covers for Pantomime. I dunno, what do you think about them? ;-) Did I miss out by not going to them first?
A beautiful reveal at Leo Cristea’s blog, who interviewed me for Fantasy Faction. I beamed from ear to ear when I read it.
Cover reveal at Jana’s blog The Book Goddess.
The lovely Memory, who was one of my beloved beta readers, has unveiled the cover at her blog, Stella Matutina.
Cover reveal at Sharon M Johnson’s blog!
Daphne over at Winged Reviews also reveals the cover!
Catherine at CallieachsDevoir says lovely things about the cover here.
And last but not least, Kaye over at Paper Reader shows off my cover.
If anyone else puts up a cover reveal, send a mention to @LR_Lam or drop me a line on my contact page and I’ll put the link up on this entry.
People have been saying lovely things about the cover. A huge thank you to Tom Bagshaw, a truly talented artist, my editor Amanda Rutter for the spot-on art brief, and Marc Gascoigne for the gorgeous lettering.
Goodreads now has the little cover image on it, hooray! It’s also been added to the Amanda Rutter’s Pinterest for Strange Chemistry cover art, and if you’d like to repin it and help spread the word that way, I’d be very grateful.
Hokay, link salad complete. Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered for this cover reveal and for all the sweet things you’ve said about the cover. I am a-okay if you decide to judge my book by this cover, as I think it’s one of the most beautiful book covers ever. (I am a little biased. But only a little).
