The Art department just gave me the cover! So, what do you think? Yummy, huh?
Pre-ordering a copy lets Random House know you’re excited:
Signed from Bookshop Santa Cruz or Poisoned Pen Books
Unsigned or ebook at B&N/Nook or Amazon/Kindle.
I like it, especially the use of blue. I have pre-ordered my copy from the Poisoned Pen.
Beautifully blue and mysterious. Can’t wait to get it from the Santa Cruz bookstore.
I love it!!
Gorgeous – haunting, mysterious, and beautiful. And I like the period typeface, as well. I am so eager for this book!
Very classy. Will be interesting to see what A&B do with this title, too!
(Oh – and any update on compiling Mary’s war tales in book form…?)
Newsletter crossed with my earlier post, so YES, Mary’s War pre-ordered for the Kindle!
Blue , great design, lively typeface, yeah, but it’s the meaning behind the title that’s got me nervous…say it ain’t so. And now I have to wait.
Please don’t kill her off, only started reading this set of books about 5 months ago, read them all, reading your books are like sitting in a comfy chair sipping on earl grey and dunking the odd custard cream biccy, have orded a copy from poison pen to be sent to u.k.
NO NO NOOOOO!!! You can’t kill Mary! She’s my hero!!!!!! She has soooo many more delicious adventures to share with her devoted fans!
You can’t kill Mary off yet – in “A case by Correspondance” she is 92, lots of stories yet!
Sorry to be negative. I know you don’t get to choose the cover. The above is just not worthy of you or your series. I hope you can get a redo. Regards, Bear Bauman
Looks fine to me, and I find it difficult to believe that Mary could be easily relieved of the burden of respiration involuntarily.
I AM JUST EXPERIENCING THE THRILL OF FINDING AN AUTHOR AND SERIES THAT ARE NEW TO ME AND THAT ABSOLUTELY CAPTIVATE MY IMAGINATION. JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO I STARTED BACKWARDS, WITH A “PLAYAWAY” OF ‘A MONSTROUS REGIMENT OF WOMEN’ SO BRILLIANTLY READ BY JENNY STERLIN. THEN ON WITH ‘THE BEEKEEPER’S APPRENTICE’ AND NOW I’M LISTENING TO ‘GAME OF SHADOWS’ WHILE I DO MY GARDENING.
I KNOW THIS JUMPING AROUND IS A MISTAKE BUT I TAKE WHAT IS AVAILABLE AT MY LIBRARY ON ‘PLAYAWAY’.
I DREAD THE THOUGHT OF MARY’S DEMISE YET I KNOW THAT THERE ARE MANY ADVENTURES TO SHARE WITH HER BEFORE THAT TIME COMES IN MY READING LIFE.
Dear Mrs. King,
I love the look. However, (there’s always an however in my world) I will certainly miss Mary when she’s gone. She’s the best. I’m sure that Holmes would concur.
Your Not-So-Humble-And- Not- So- Obedient Servant,
I love the look! However, I will certainly miss Mary when she departs. She’s the best. I ‘m sure that Holmes would concur.
