News: Final Design for US Book Cover for Escape From Furnace: Execution by Alexander Gordon Smith

Just over a month ago I posted an image of the cover of the US edition of Escape From Furnace: Execution by Alexander Gordon Smith. This is the final book in his Furnace series and is due out in the US in November. However, that cover has now changed slightly and today I received an email from the US publisher with the final cover attached, and a huge surprise for me..... I am quoted on the front cover! This is my first ever front cover quote and I am so chuffed that it is for a series that I really believe in, and have been championing ever since I read the first book.

I have said on here before that I love the cover designs for the US editions, and I confess that I have been buying them  to add to my collection. Quote aside, the cover for Execution is my favourite in the series, and I had a message from Alexander Gordon Smith today telling me that it is his favourite as well. The publisher also informed me that the US print and ebook editions will also include the epilogue that does not appear in the UK editions, and over here can only be read online. Having read the epilogue I think that this is a great move by FSG.

Here is the final cover, in all its folded out awesomeness. Click on the image for a really good, blown-up look at it.

  1. I have to confess that this series is probably too scary for my wussy self to read but it's so cool your quote will be on the front cover! Congrats :o)
