Ice Breaker – the cover!!!!!!

June 13th, 2013

I just got this today, and couldn’t wait to put it up. Here at last is the full cover of ‘Ice Breaker’, in all its glory.

Now of course I want to know what you think. Do you like it? Does it make you want to read the book? What do you think of Petrel? (She’s the girl on the cover, and it’s her story – well, mostly.)

Also, the official in-the-shops day for ‘Ice Breaker’ (in Aust/NZ) is October 22nd, which is a week earlier than I thought.

And as an extra bonus, I’ve had some more entries for the competition. What a week – and it’s still only Thursday! πŸ™‚

The first one was from Jordyn, who is 14.

The next one was from Lilli, who is 10.

And the third one was from Mea, who is an adult (and I strongly suspect she is Lilli’s mother). πŸ™‚

Don’t you like the way people are doing such different things for this competition? Some people are doing drawings, and some are doing very simple designs using just the words. I really look forward to getting these emails marked ‘competition’, because I know they’re going to be exciting.

Now of course there are only a few days left. I HOPE entries will pour in between now and Sunday …

    AWESOOOOME!!!!!!!!! It is so cool! Thank you for giving us how you think it will look like!!!!

  5. Io says:

    Because maybe you’ll change it. (?)

    1. Lian says:

      No, this is definitely the final cover, Io. The artist did the painting, then the designers worked out where the lettering should go and what it should look like. I didn’t have anything much to do with it – the publisher does all this stuff. They sent me the cover yesterday. And I am so pleased that everyone likes it so much … did I mention that I adore it? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  8. Io says:

    Just asking, who is the boy in the cover behind the Petrel?

  9. Io says:

    I mean Petrel?

    1. Lian says:

      No one knows who he is, Io. That’s the problem. And he claims to have lost his memory …

      1. Io says:

        Ooooh….mysterious. Perfect for an excellent book! πŸ˜€

    Ice breaker cover looking amazing!
    I’m looking forward to reading it!
    Oh and I just realised that your an Aussie I’m an Aussie too!!!
    I’ve read all three of your keepers books and after that I want to be a writer like you! If the ice breaker is half as good as the keepers then I’ll rate 5/5!!
    Bye for now Lizzy

      Hi Lizzy, everyone seems to like the new cover, don’t they – which is good! Personally, I think Ice Breaker is better than the Keepers. But that might just be because it’s my newest book. I always tend to like the newest one best!

      1. Io says:

        Why do you tend to like the newest one best?

        1. Lian says:

          I think because I’m still sort of living in that book in my imagination, so it’s still very rich for me, and very exciting. But it’s also because I learn a bit more with every book I write, so each one should be that little bit better than the last one.

  11. Io says:

    Okay. That was very persuasive, actually. I agree. πŸ˜€
