Real World of Pirates book covers
One of the best things about writing a book (besides the worldwide celebrity it brings) is seeing the artwork and covers for the first time. When youre writing a book or an article or anything really, you only see it as a plain old boring word processing document. Theres no colour, no images to make your words come alive and no cover with your name emblazoned in huge flashing letters (okay, so you dont get that anyway, but a writer can dream.)
Last week, my editor at Capstone Press sent me the covers for my upcoming books in the series The Real World of Pirates (thats them at the top of this post.) I also had a look at all the interior art work, layout, etc and I have to say that Im very happy with how its looking and Im very excited to see the real papery version.
With a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie out this summer and recent rumours that pirates are the new wizards in kids publishing, Im confident that these pirate books will be a big hit with readers across North America.
The books come out this fall and will be sold directly to schools, so if youre a teacher or school librarian make sure you add them to your schools piratey book collection!
