This has already appeared on Facebook and Tumblr (and it may or may not have turned up on Goodreads and Amazon), but here it is again: The lovely, eerie, swirlingly snowy cover of THE BOOKS OF ELSEWHERE, VOLUME FIVE: STILL LIFE. I knew how lucky I was to be paired with illustrator Poly Bernatene the very first time I saw his sketches, and with each volume of THE BOOKS OF ELSEWHERE, I feel even luckier and even more certain that these books should not — or maybe even could not — have turned out any other way. Thanks to Poly and the brilliant designers at Dial, these are books I would want to climb inside.
Events are also falling into place. The release party will be held at the glorious Red Balloon in St. Paul on the actual release date (that’s still Tuesday, June 17th, for anyone who’s lost track) at 6:30 p.m.
The following weekend, I’ll be at Valley Bookseller in Stillwater, MN. If you’re in the area at 2:00 on Saturday, June 21, I’d love to see you there.
More to come…
