American Cover for Vulture’s Wake


In a few weeks time, Vulture’s Gate will come out in its American incarnation as Vulture’s Wake.

Yesterday, I was sent the cover by the US publisher, Holiday House. I like the dry, golden effect. It’s actually very Australian with its parched landscape and reminded me of one of the Australian classics from my childhood that I own in hardback Lillith Norman’s Climb a Lonely Hill.

These days, not many Australian children’s books are published in hardcover so it’s a little bit thrilling that in the US, books come out in hardcover first and then are released in paperback later. I can’t wait to get my advance copies in the post.
