Have I mentioned how excited I am for my new book? Even though Astronaut Academy: Zero Gravity doesn't hit stores until June 2011, the advanced reader copies go out in a couple of weeks to help create buzz. I've got a proof of the cover, which was hard to photograph because it will be printed on reflective foil!

Credit goes to the amazing Colleen AF Venable who designed the cover and championed for the foil printing!

That is hot. It'll be great to have the whole thing under one cover. I love minicomics, but they are so hard to keep track of!

Eoin Colfer said boys need covers shiny cos they need to be able to lick them.

Which might be wrong, but heck, Artemis Fowl seems to do ok with the foil covers.

Is this going to be digest sized like a trade paperback?

Maybe we should try and get a quote from Colfer for the back cover!

First volume is 180 pages and it will be the same trim size as the majority of First Second books (American Born Chinese, Sardine in Outer Space, Brain Camp etc.) only without the French flaps.

Thanks! At one point that art was for the top of the front cover. But they've floated around!
