My spies have reported that this beauty will be the cover of the German edition of The Raven’s Shadow, out later this year.
Hats off to Heyne, who are producing a wonderful set of covers for the series – they look awesome on the shelf together. I can’t wait to get hold of a copy.
Der Schleier der Macht translates as The Veil of Power. Hazarding a guess at why they’ve changed the title, it occurs to me that it might be because Der Schatten des Raben, which is a literal translation of ‘the raven’s shadow’ doesn’t exactly trip off the tongue!
Der Schleier der Macht will be published in Germany on 14 July 2014, in paperback.
In the meantime, I’ll be up here in my office, basking. As you do.
In case you’ve forgotten what you’ve won
Thanks to everyone who entered the recent giveaway for signed copies of The Raven’s Shadow – 176* of you in all. I have so much fun doing these things I wish my dark masters had sent me more copies!
What’s been especially nice this time around has been hearing all the lovely things people have to say about the series so far. I’m quite humbled. Never did I imagine that this story I wrote for myself would be enjoyed by so many people.
So, moving on, before I get any more mushy and ruin my image: the winners have been drawn, and the following five lucky people
Jorge, Wayne, Joel, Babel, and Paul
will soon be receiving an email from me for their address and personalisation details. I’m aiming to get your books in the post on Saturday 7th September (how the hell did it get to be September already?)
Hope you enjoy the read!
