Even More Covers...

One of the funnest parts of being an author is getting fancy book covers. My publishers in the UK must've understood this, because they gave me not one but two different covers for each book in the Trylle Trilogy.

I'm going to be posting them in a second, because they're awesome and lovely, but first I want to explain to you what they are. These are the covers for the Trylle Trilogy editions that are coming out in the UK, Australia, India, South Africa, and Asia. Below each cover, I'll also be putting the release dates, since it's slightly different than the US release dates.

So... here they are!

These are the "adult" covers for the trilogy:
Coming January 5, 2012

Coming March 1, 2012

Coming April 26, 2012


These are the "young adult" covers for the trilogy:
YA Edition Coming January 5, 2012

YA Edition Coming March 1, 2012

YA Edition Coming April 26, 2012

You may ask yourself, "adult" version? I thought these were all young adult books? They are, kinda. But my publishers in the UK came up with the idea to add different bonus content the adult books geared more toward adults and different content for young adults. Both versions include the brand-new bonus short story, but in addition to that, they also have different interviews with me and a few other things.

I do want to clarify that when I say "adult," I don't mean x-rated. It's just information that adults might find more appealing than young adults. But no matter which edition you get, the story will be the same, the bonus story will be there, and the extra content will be fun and informative. And the cover will be pretty.

So what do you guys think? What's your favorite cover? Mine is probably the YA one for Switched. Or maybe the YA one for Ascend. But I don't know. They're all lovely.

  1. I love the adult Switched one. It's so pretty with the bright orange butterflies. But all of them are pretty.

  2. They all are very nice. Congrats. But I would have to say my fav is the adult one for Switched because orange is my favorite color and I happen to suffer from a strange obsession with butterflies.

  3. I think they're all beautiful. The colors in Switched makes it my favorite of the bunch, but they're all exceptional.

  5. I have to say, whoever is in charge of the covers for the US and these, did an amazing job. I'm getting so sick of seeing the same stock art, idea, theme used over and over. I think these are all beautiful and really stand out.

  9. I think the covers are amazing, respectively. But I do have to say that the "adult" set altogether is my favorite! Such a huge fan, and the re- releases of these books just can't come fast enough! <3

  18. I just think it's GREAT that you now have books out to put covers on! Way to go, your hard work has paid off in a big way. Love the books, even though I'm 50 years past the young adult age! I've read them all so far and looking forward to more.

  21. All of the covers are gorgeous. I especially love the YA cover for Switched.

  22. I love the covers. It must bet the heck out of designing your own. When we write our books, I love drawing or designing the cover, but it can be a huge amount of work.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love it! The covers are awesome, definitely want adult version.

    And on a personal note my birthday was yesterday. Bught a bunch a books and strolled around.

  24. I like TORN with the red leaves. Good edgy contrast to the murky green background. I also think it's a great idea to expand the readership into the adult trade market. Why not?

  25. I like the YA one for Switched the best, but they are all beautiful! I'm so excited for you! Congratulations!!!

  26. I am a comic book artist and I like the first one, but all are very good....

  28. I'm so excited that you'll have books to put covers on. Side note, more content geared toward "adults." I'm totally interested!!!

  29. Will these be the covers for the Australian edition or can we in Australia still get the first covers that we saw? I like these but the first cover reveals were my favourite.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Those are gorgeous! I love the colors! I think I like the YA Switched and Ascend best! I'm very excited for the bonus stories!

  31. I can't decide. I love them all. Beautiful colours.

    ReplyDelete
  32. strange concept, but it sounds logical to gear it towards the two separate audiences

    ReplyDelete
  33. By the way...Love the new profile pic. You have a beautiful smile :)

  34. Those new UK covers are amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like them all because of the black/white, purple/white, green/white etc theme with one predominant color. Very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  36. The cover for the United Kingdom look fantastic! That's a great idea to split between the younger and adult audiences, giving them the option for what they want to read.

  37. Definitely the 'Adult' versions grab more attention.

    Having just gone through some cover selection myself for a book I just launched (see the url attached to my name); I 'd suggest somehow making it clear which versions were for which markets. Because someone will invariably give a gift to someone and learn and fret that they grabbed the wrong one in haste. A "YA-imprint" logo so people can understand the differences in content would help a lot.

    The idea is intriguing to offer tailored material to two different markets, but potentially risky. Also, is the publisher spending twice the marketing or just half the marketing each in two places? Which means you'll get twice the shelf space at traditional book stores, or not?

  39. Fabulously recognisable Amanda Hocking. Even if someone completely random would show these covers to me and your name wasn't there, I would still think you wrote them. It's a marvellous combination of titles and background images that reflect your style.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh these covers are absolutely amazing! I have got to get my hands on all six of these!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Great covers! Especially the orange and gold tones against the black and white images. And yes, the adult covers somehow have more pop.

    ReplyDelete
