Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits - The Cover Art

First there was the artwork for The Sour Aftertaste of Olive Lemon which made feel incredibly fortunate to have such a pretty little chapbook. I thought, second time around (assuming there would ever be a second time), I wouldn't be as fortunate. A nobody doesn't get to have two kick-ass covers. Guess, I was wrong. How beautiful is this...

Aaron Polson (publisher and cover designer) is now officially upgraded to demigod.

Very nice. When is this going to be available, again?

Cate Gardner said...

At the moment it's looking like October. Keeping my fingers crossed it is. (No pressure, Aaron). :D

Lee Thompson said...

Aaron did a fantastic job! Congrats, Cate!

Bobbie Metevier said...

I've been away for awhile and didn't even know about this! Too exciting and I love the cover--even the color!.

Good job with the cover Aaron.

I will pick this up, Cate. I've read your work before and I'd be really excited to get this.

Who's publishing?

Thanks, Corinne

Jamie Eyberg said...

I like how both of your covers use butterflies. They will look nice sitting side by side on the shelf.

Steven Pirie said...

I'll certainly pick up a copy...

LOVE the cover! Can you give us a sample of what's inside the book?

OMG, that is awesome! I love that cover! I can't wait to snap up my copy in a few months, too. :)

Looks great- looking forward to getting hold of this one!

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, Rebecca

Jamie, I know!!! I've so got to include a butterfly in the plot of my next book.

Thanks, Steven.

Me neither, Anthony

Rose, the answer to that would be a huge YES - http://www.fantasy-magazine.com/2009/07/trench-foot/ - one of the stories previously appeared in Fantasy magazine.

Katey, he is soooooo talented.

Thank you, Jaym

Thanks, Kate

Thanks, Simon

Aaron Polson said...

I don't know who this "Aaron" fellow is, but he obviously has too much time on his hands. (Yes, October is looking good)

Cate Gardner said...

Aaron :D

Ian said...

Fantastic! Congrats to both of you.

Andrea Allison said...

ooohhhh pretty! You both did a fabulous job.

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, guys. Though I just span in my chair while Aaron made with the pretty.

Barry Napier said...

What a fantastic cover! Aaron continues to outdo himself! Can't wait to have this on my shelf! (or, to be more honest, in my To Read pile)...

Cate Gardner said...

Ha! Thanks, Barry.
