I look forward to buying a copy. Very exciting! And something about this whole thing brought to mind a song from my formative years, very influential in my development as a young man. Pathetic, huh?

Ah, the MacKenzie Brothers! Not pathetic at all.

Geddy Lee's mom used to run a discount store on Main Street here in town.

We have the CD of The Great White North. I also have a DVD copy of Strange Brew.

Wow, love it! Look forward to reading it!

Eeee! So pretty! (And so very Canadian; I love it!)

And you met Geddy Lee's mom? *adulates you*

Um. Yeah. I'm a bit of a Rush fangirl. :-D

Travis Erwin said...

Looks great. I look forward to reading it.

Great cover! Now I will have to read the book to see if someone fell into BAD ICE, or if someone's nickname is "Bad Ice," or there was poison in BAD ICE. One way or the other it looks intriguing. Congrats on getting a great book cover. As always, Champagne Books is out front in the art department.

Looks like you've scored twice now on covers! Woo-hoo! Somebody's lookin' after you.

Lisa said...

I think it's gorgeous -- congratulations!

wordtryst said...

Quite lovely. Love the overcast, foreboding vibe.

Chumplet said...

Thanks, everyone!

I was just at a fundraiser tonight and had donated my first book, The Space Between. There was a bidding war and it went for twice the eleven dollar value. Ha!

Aimless Writer said...

Very cool! And a little spooky.
When does it come out?

I really love the cover! It invites an opening of the pages.

When does this come out?

Chumplet said...

It's due out as an e-book in July and hopefully in print by hockey season. The next one, that is!

mlh said...

Wow! Did you have any say or creative input on what the cover art would look like, since you are an artist yourself?

Ciara Gold said...

Oh wow, this is a great cover! It has a mysterious, alluring feel to it. Verra nice.

Chumplet said...

With my first book, the artist was totally open to my input and allowed me to take a major role in its design. With this book, I sent in my suggestions (the dark frozen pond, the maple leaf) and Chris Butt used many elements I had suggested. The 'melting ice' font was his idea.

OMG, it DOES look like a beer commercial. Great that you've got it though...Congrats.

Has all those below the ice/hidden danger vibes.

Kanani said...

Cool! How wonderful. I can't wait to read it.

As a former commercial artist, I'm not at all wild about that typeface. But I do like the moody winter scene, just don't think the font fits the image.
