Hippo Eats Dwarf Cover
image Hippo Eats Dwarf now has a cover, thanks to the art department at Harcourt. This will almost definitely be the final cover unless (as my editor cautions) changes are made after the sales conference in October. Ideally one wants a cover that will make people curious enough to pick up the book and flip through it, and I think this does the trick. Oh, and I shouldn't forget to point out that the book can be pre-ordered on Amazon.

just beautiful. you should also have a way to pay through the site, but also pay extra to have you sign it.

I don't have any means to take payments directly through the site. Plus, my publisher wouldn't want me competing directly against bookstores. But once the book comes out I'll probably let people paypal me money if they want a signed copy.

They should be selling the cover art (enlarged) as a poster, I think.
