Illustrations for City of Lies
December 9th, 2010
I’ve just seen the new character illustrations for the second book, City of Lies, and they are GORGEOUS. The artist is Seb Ciaffaglione, who did the pics for the first book, and I think he has outdone himself. I’m busting to show them to someone, but will have to wait. Maybe I can sneak one in sometime in the new year, just to give people a taste …
As for Museum of Thieves, it seems to be travelling well. It’s just gone into reprint in Australia, and we’ve got new contracts for translation into Turkish, Bahasa Indonesian and Brazilian Portuguese. No idea which cover they will use, or if they’ll do their own. Or what ‘Toadspit’ will look like in the various languages.
On the downside, there’s no way I’m going to get the first draft of Path of Beasts finished before the end of the year. I have to go back to Adelaide next week to help clear out my mum’s unit, so there’s very little time left. Never mind – I’ll finish it early in the new year.
