In which Kaz gets her cover…

…and faints with JOY!

Honestly, I am almost speechless right now. (Amazing, I know! *g*)

I think that happiness is… being gifted with a cover for your first novel that perfectly encapsulates EVERYTHING inside it. Flux have done something amazing here, and I’m so proud to have my name on this book.

Please stop by the wonderful Book Smugglers‘ blog and take a look. They asked to show it off first, and who am I to say ‘no’? 😉 Thank you, Ana and Thea!

    Oh my God! You’ve been blessed by the cover Gods!
    It’s so pretty! I love it! 🙂
    Is it February yet?

    Ooh! That is gorgeous.

    I. Love. Your. Cover.

    It’s phenomenal.

    I almost fainted with joy on your behalf myself!

    • Kaz says:

      Nova, thank you!! LOL! I love that you almost fainted – though of course, I’m quite glad that you didn’t *actually* faint. 😉

      I couldn’t be happier with the cover; it’s truly perfect for the book. <3

    I agree with all commens here, the cover gods are smiling down upon you!! This cover is fabulous 😀 Congratulations!!! I love the iron tattoos on her arms, the font, the colors and the pretty bottle she is holding in her hand (hmm what does it symbolize?)

    Loved the excerpt as well, can’t wait for February!

    Why is this tagged as geeky? This belongs under cool Kaz or unbelivable Kaz, etc. Awesome cover!

    • Kaz says:

      Thank you so much!! *hugs* I’m very happy!!!

      Yes, the bottle is a vial of the Elixir of Life (alchemists create it from the Philosopher’s Stone) which can heal pretty much anything, and even give eternal life – according to legends… The liquid is red, and the bottle is decorated with cogs and other things, to symbolize the kind of work alchemy entails.

      Re. geeky – hee!! I guess you’re right… 😉 But still, it’s not like I really had anything to do with it. The designer did an amazing job!!

    Okay, this is going right into my favorite covers collection.

    HOLY EFFIN S*** KAZ!!! That cover is STUNNING!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!! OMG – I’m so happy for you and I can barely stand the wait for The Iron Witch‘s release. I almost never buy hard covers, brand new, in the store – just can’t afford it. This one I’m buying release day, brick and mortar baby.

    So cool! Yay!!! (And Ari’s totally right – not geeky at all. You have every right to squee, faint, and be immensely proud of your first solo cover. You’ve worked hard and absolutely deserve every good thing happening right now & in the future)!

  6. catie james says:

    Just curious – when I link to The Book Smuggler’s post in my own blog, is it all right if I call you “my friend Kaz”? (I don’t want to be rude or presumptuous).

  7. *squeals with joy*

    Oh, honey, it’s gorgeous! Soooo happy for you!

    *dances with Kaz* 😀

      • Ka-Yam says:

        Your welcome! Plus, I envy the girl’s beautiful silky hair, mine is like hog bristles. Lol.

        What about Moth’s story in Beautiful Ghosts? You know how much I’d L O V E to hug/read/devour it.

        • Kaz says:

          LOL!! I’m sure your hair isn’t like that… 😀

          Re. Moth, well… Beautiful Ghosts is currently being read by publishers,
          so we’ll have to see what happens. No news yet! You can read more
          Moth in KISS ME DEADLY, the follow-up anthology to THE ETERNAL
          KISS… *g*

    Totally late but you already knew how much love I have for it. 😀 I am *so* excited for you. Also, I love that “lost the plot” made it into TIW. It’s so British!! LOL!

  10. Sonia says:

    I love, love, love it! Can’t wait to put it on my bookshelf!

  11. Adelina says:

    Gorgeous cover!

  12. Mardel says:

    Wow, Mz Karen! Your cover is making the rounds. It’s also over at All Things Urban Fantasy. Of course, then I blogged about it. It’s a great cover. If I were just browsing, I’d totally pick it up to see what’s up with the book. Of course, can’t wait to buy it! 🙂

    • Kaz says:

      Dude, I know!! It’s been crazy… I’m so grateful that people love it – and Flux did a wonderful job.

      Thank you so much for blogging about it – you’re so kind. *hugs*

  13. Alexa says:

  14. Oh-Em-Gee! I LOVE that cover, Karen! LOVE!

    So happy for you that you have a wonderful cover. It really does make ALL the difference. Can’t wait to read it!


    • Kaz says:

      Michelle, thank you SO much!!!! I’m honestly just… overwhelmed by how lovely it is. So grateful. 🙂


  15. Firewolf says:

    wow, that’s just amazing. Absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to read it!!! Then I will put it on my shelf and it will make other books jealous because of it’s awesome cover. (yeah, I’m a little weird)

  16. Christy Raedeke says:

    I have been anxiously awaiting your cover reveal and can say it exceeds my high expectations! Can’t wait for it to grace my bookshelves…



    • Kaz says:

      I’m, quite frankly, amazed by how gorgeous it is. I knew it would be good, but this exceeded all MY hopes. 🙂

      Thanks, Christy.

  17. I loved it and now I’m all interested in your novel!

    I don’t know how those Book Smuggler girls do it. They have a completely awesome blog. Good choice for your unveiling.

    • Kaz says:

      Tia, thank you very much!! 🙂

      The Book Smugglers are indeed awesome (*ninja*), and I’m lucky to be friends with Ana in Real Life.

  18. Tricia says:

    Gorgeous cover!!! Congratulations!

  19. ThisViewOfMine says:

    !! Just saw your cover on The Book Smugglers! I love it! *is excited*

    I don’t buy authologies – I only own 1, in fact – so as soon as 2011 gets here I’ll be buying my first story from you. XD Yay!

    Didn’t mean to drop out of commenting on your BEDM. I went into a reading binge for like 2 weeks where the only thing i did in my spare time was read. Which is SO not a bad thing!

    • Kaz says:

      No worries at ALL re. BEDM. You helped keep me going in the beginning – that was awesome. 🙂 Also, reading binges are brilliant. No need to apologise for that. Hehe…

      Hope you read some wonderful books.

      Oh, and thanks! The cover is just PERFECT. I am still overjoyed with it.
