The Wood Queen ~ Australian Cover

We interrupt the frantic work on Moth revisions to show you the striking cover that Random House Australia have created for The Wood Queen. Thanks to all the lovely people ‘down under’ who worked on this, and especially to Adiba Oemar who sent me the final version last night. I will say that I’ve also seen the back and spine of the book (though it’s not quite finished yet), and the whole thing is beautiful. The back cover is so pretty!

But, anyway… Here’s the front:

  1. It’s pretty sweet… I like her arm and the floating flora… though I do prefer the US version.

    1. I love them both and definitely like how pretty this one is. But I am particulaly fond of how strong Donna looks on the front of the US cover – and it shows an Actual Scene from the book really well. 🙂

      Redheads are awesome. This is a True Fact of the Universe.

  3. *takes a deep breath* Okay. I have just two things to say.

    1. Look, your name is so BIG, Karen!! 😀

    2. Um… I just love it. She’s gorgeous. THIS COVER IS GORGEOUS!! So jealous of the Australians! Also, it’s so different from TIW…

    LOVE it. Congratulations, Kaz!! <3

      1. Haha!! It is! That’s so true. I hadn’t even thought of that… 🙂

      2. It’s very different from TIW, which is probably why not all the publishers of the trilogy will go for this look. Often, a publisher likes the books to have a similar ‘look’ – do you know what I mean? This is quite a departure, but I still really love it.

      I can’t believe how close it is!! Also, I’m glad you like both – I love them both for different reasons. 🙂

      Thanks so much for commenting. 🙂 I think it’ll do well in the Australian marketplace. It’s much smaller over there, and one of the bestselling YA series is by Lauren Kate (FALLEN, etc.) which has the girl-in-ballgown sort of cover.
