While I await the OFFICIAL Random House/Delacorte cover design for Who Needs Magic?, I thought I would share this design by artist Lissy Goode, on Deviant Art (where you can check out her many other cool photos and designs, including a sketch of Delaney!).
This cover would actually work really well if I ever spin off a series about a new character in this book, rival fairy godmother Ariella Patterson. It might happen!
*The title of this blog post is a sly allusion to Rene Magritte's painting "This is Not a Pipe." It's surrealism, so don't over think it too much...
What a question! I need magic and I expect to get it from the amazing art designers at Random House, who are currently working on the cover for Who Needs Magic?, the sequel to Don't Expect Magic.
I've just finished the copy edits. The sequel is scheduled to be published in fall of 2013. It seems far away, but time has a way of zipping along without stopping. ;-)
Stay tuned for more info, as well as a cover image as soon as I have it!
