Cover Reveals and Revamps (and Award News)!

Last Thursday, the US cover for ACID was revealed over at Pub(lishing) Crawl

Isn't it great? I'm so happy that Delacorte decided to use the same image as the UK edition (I mean, how can you top it, really?), and even more excited that the US edition is going to be a hardcover. I've already seen a jacket proof, and it looks amazing. I can't wait to see the finished book. If you head over to Pub Crawl, you can enter a giveaway for a signed ARC (US only, sorry). What are you waiting for?

I've also got some news about the cover for THE FEARLESS - it's had an update, and I think it's wonderful. I love the fiery colours behind Cass – they really stand out, and it goes even better with ACID's cover now, too. If you want to see the old and the new cover side by side, head over to Kate Ormand's blog. I'd love to know which one you prefer!

And last week, I found out ACID has been shortlisted for the NE Teen Book Award, along with Laura Lam's PANTOMIME, Kerry Drewery's A DREAM OF LIGHTS, Paula Rawsthorne's BLOOD TRACKS, Alison Rattle's THE QUIETNESS and Matt Whyman's THE SAVAGES. What a list! Huge congratulations to everyone else on the shortlist. I can't wait to see who wins.


  1. The cover looks great, Emma, and good luck with the award!!

  2. Well done, Emma - you've worked hard for this. We're all crossing our fingers for you.

    1. Thank you, Joey - I'm thrilled with both of them!

  4. Fabulous cover Emma :)

  5. The update of Fearless is even stronger with the fiery background, gives it a stronger sense of danger. Love both covers for both books!

  6. Love the new Fearless cover - so dramatic!

  7. ... Hardback of ACID?
    Looks like I'm going to be broke forever because I'll have to get a HB shipped to the UK XD
    Shame about the ARC though. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNT. I'll have to stalk the internet for one:P

    Fearless looks amazing! SO EXCITED:D

    Also congratulations on being shortlisted!:3
