I received the final cover for Queen of the Dead and permission to post it. I really love it and am so excited to share it with you guys!

Without further ado:


If you’ve seen the previous version, you’ll note that the main difference is in Will’s expression. He looks just a little bit more annoyed, which delights me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Though his life is certainly better than it was before, Alona still drives him crazy on a regular basis. That’s just part of who they are together. And I think this image reflects that better.

We still have the gorgeous diner set up with all the yummy desserts and the soft colors. Alona’s expression is still that wicked “I’m up to no good, and you totally know it” look. And Will is showing just a tad more of the “FML” attitude that I imagine he feels on a fairly regular basis when he’s caught up in one of Alona’s schemes. ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, aren’t the models both so gorgeous? They do such a great job representing Alona and Will. I love it!

    Hey Stacey!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the cover!!! It came out amazing! Their expressions so FIT! You can’t look at this cover and not end up with a huge smile on your face, that’s for sure.

    Ohmigosh!!! I love it, I love it! It’s even better than the ARC cover ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s just so cute! Will’s just looking at her like, “Not again, Alona. This had better be good…” :mrgreen:

    I am geeking out here. It’s an awesome cover. The Ghost and the Goth was one of my favorite books of the year! It beat out The Hunger Games, so that’s saying something.
    Out of all the books I’ve read this year, The Ghost and the Goth was the first one, the instant I finished, I jumped to my computer to see if there was a sequel. I did a dance of joy. Now that i see the cover, I CAN’T WAIT for it to come out.

    Sorry I just spilled geek all over your blog, I’ll get you a towel to help clean that off.

      Erinn, feel free to geek out here anytime, no clean-up required. ๐Ÿ˜† And I’m totally honored and flattered by your high opinion of G&G, especially as The Hunger Games is one of my favorites. Thank you!

    Hi Stacey!

    I thought I’d pass by to see if the final cover was already revealed, and it is! I am delighted! Will and Alona are as cute as ever, and I love Will’s expression here. I also adore the way the word Queen shines like Alona and the word Dead is slightly dark, very goth-ish…and they’re hovering over their respective characters! I can’t wait to get my hands on it ๐Ÿ˜€

    Happy Christmas!

    Oooh…I totally love the cover, awesome job! And I would totally love it even more if I could already read it ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Hoping to see that in one of our bookstores here, I’ll totally snag it! Can’t wait no longer ๐Ÿ˜†

    I’ll see this soon! Once again, a standing ovation for Stacey Kade!

    Much love for Alona & Will รขโ„ขยฅ
