A picture really IS worth a thousand words. SEVERAL thousand, in this case! I’ve been dying to post this… and now I finally can! Without further ado, lovely readers, I present to you the cover art for DARKLIGHT – book 2 in the WONDROUS STRANGE trilogy!

If you ask me, the design geniuses at HarperCollins really knocked this one out of the park. WAAAYY out. *deliriously happy sigh*

    What Lesley didn’t add was that this cover picture was taken the SAME DAY as the first one, before even the second book was written. The fact that this picture so suits the second novel, so demonstrates the character’s growth from the first, and looks so different and yet obviously similar, is just beyond . . . beyond.

    But I still hate that model. And by “hate” I mean “want to be her and wear those dresses”.

    Thanks, guys!! I’m so glad you all like it.

    And Adrienne’s right – the design team at HarperCollins is both phenomenal and psychic!

    (And LLL – you are so right. Try as I might to not judge a book by it’s cover… well…)

    This cover is awesome!!! And I love the title! It’s sort of strange, because I wrote a poem a few months ago called Darklight.

  6. Lesley Livingston says:

    Thanks again, guys!

    Paradox – how cool!

    Jessica – I LOVE the cover for THE HOLLOW.

    Federica – I have NO idea what the Italian title will be – something musical, no doubt – but don’t worry. As soon as I know, I’ll post it on this blog!

    I think it’s amazing!! It definately fits the book, with the whole Ney York girl fantasy princess thing. When i Found out about Wondrous Strange, I think i was going crazy wanting to know when the next book was coming out. And Man, The Cover just makes it THAT more tempting. 🙂 Can’t wait for it to come out.

    I can’t see the time to read it!
    The first book is simply amazing. From yesterday – when i finished the book – i put it on the top of my list. You’re a really good writer, Lesley. I dreamed about this book! I would to write more, and describe to you what i felt reading the book, but i think it’s better an e -mail – it can be annoyng 🙂 – and then, my english is too bad. Sorry, I’m italian. Bye Lesley, i wait for the second book!

    Thanks again, guys!

    I still grin like a kid at a carnival every time I look at it!

    Alessandra – She certainly looks exactly how I pictured Kelley in my head, all right. I have NO idea who I’d cast as Sonny! Some fabulous unknown, maybe.

    Mrs. D – it’ll be on shelves in December of this year.

    Jenn and Jenna – I’m excited you’re excited! 😀

    And Clara – thank you! And your English beats the heck out of my Italian!

    Oh my gosh – I’m so excited! I just read Wondrous Strange and was curious to know if there would be a sequel, so I visited your website.

    The cover looks awesome – Can’t wait until December =n_n=

    I hope this thread isn’t too old to get a response. The cover truely is beautiful. I’m wondering who the model is? She looks a lot like Sienna Guillory, who played Aria in Eragon.
