The new covers for the Trylle Trilogy were revealed on USAToday.com! Their whole piece is up: here.

And in case you don’t want to click that link, here are the covers:

Aren’t they fancy? I love them! ARCs should be going out for Switched soon, but it won’t be in stores until January 24, 2012. There’s going to be a ton of stuff going on in January to promote it, too – all of which I’m incredibly excited for.

AND I have another announcement about the books. Readers are always telling me how they want me to continue the series – and while I have no plans to do that – I do like new content. So for fans of the series, I wanted to give them a little something extra. Each of the books will contain a never-before-seen short story set in the world of the Trylle.

I don’t want to give away too much about the stories except that each is set in the time frame the book takes place. The first short story is set during the time that Switched takes place, and so on. I will also say this: Both the short story for Switched and Torn do not take place from Wendy’s POV.

But anything else, I don’t want to say. We’re trying to keep it a surprise. The short stories aren’t even going to go out in the ARCs.

In other fun news – I’m picking out the models for the covers of Wake. It’s neat, and it makes me feel fancy that I get to look at models portfolios. That cover probably won’t be released for quite awhile, I imagine, since Wake isn’t set to come out until fall 2012.

And I also wanted to thank everybody for their input on my new turtle, Jasper Tortuga. It was very helpful. I have him set up in a ten gallon tank with water and a floating land barge. He also has a filter and a heat lamp.

I ordered him new food and a UV light, but right now, he’s eating the food I got at Walmart fine. I just made sure to get more enriched food for hatchlings, since he needs more stuff because he’s going to be doing so much growing.

He hides every time I walk by his aquarium, but the turtle books said that’s a good sign. It means he’s alert and active. So he’s doing good, even if he hates me.

    First of all, I too love the covers. I loved the series. I bought them all for my nook a long time ago. I, too, would love it if you continued the series. I love the fact that you’ve added new content, that’s great, for the people that haven’t bought the books already. But what about the people who already have them, and can’t afford or don’t have space to buy them all over again? People who supported you all along? That just stinks a little for us. I know, I know, you can’t please everybody!

    So this is a bit random, but I just saw the preview for the new Muppet movie and I immediately thought “hmm, I wonder if Amanda knows?” http://www.slashfilm.com/new-muppet-movie-will-hit-theaters-on-christmas-2011/

  • The covers are beautiful, Amanda!

  • Holy cow! My wife and I see tons of covers on a daily basis, and we are both blown away by these.

    In the words of Bill Withers (Writer of Ain’t No Sunshine, Lean on Me, and heck of alot of other stuff to awesome to name) “‘Sold Out’ is the best sign you can put up next a product.”

    Great step, on your terms. Your old covers were great, but these are a cut above.

    Congratufreakinlations!
