New cover for Australian/NZ edition of Haze

With the Australian and New Zealand release of Haze less than two months away, there’s lots of tweaking and polishing going on before the book goes to press next week.

As regular readers of this blog know, there are currently two sets of cover art for the Rephaim series: one for Australia/NZ and another for the UK (which is also being used for Canada and the US).

As much as we all love the Australian artwork, we (the lovely team at Text, and I) have agreed it would be better to have the same style of artwork across all editions of all books in the Rephaim series.

Haze coverThat means the sexy UK cover will now become our Australian/NZ cover, and that Shadows will also revert to the UK cover when it (hopefully) goes into reprint.

I know lots of you love the white and gold covers. We do too! But it will make it less confusing to have the same look and feel across the series in all markets. And the UK covers are very atmospheric. 🙂

And, hey, you never know: the original Australian edition of Shadows may become a collectors’ items (even if it’s just me doing the collecting in a decade’s time….).

Stay tuned. Hope to post a teaser for Haze soon…

      Thanks Mich. It’s sooooo close now.

  4. I’m glad! It does mean that my set won’t have matching covers now, but I do like the UK cover for Haze slightly better. 🙂

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series. The Undercurrent, a stand-alone speculative thriller set in near-future Australia, will be released by Text Publishing in August 2017.

For my day job, I’m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in Brisbane with my husband.

If you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.
