The Book of Dreams Cover

My American publishers just sent me the cover for The Book of Dreams, due out Spring 2009. I think it's FABULOUS. It will be shiny metallic red ink. That completes the four elements for the books: The Hunter's Moon is air (and mist), The Summer King is water, The Light-Bearer's Daughter is earth, and The Book of Dreams is fire. Each book reflects these elements in a general or specific way: the first has fairies appearing in light and mist and involves a flight through the air sequence; the second involves sea fairies and lots of watery themes; the third is all about mountains and under the earth; the fourth definitely involves a fiery climax as well as dragons! And, yes, that's Dana on the front cover but you will also find Gwen, Laurel, Honor, Findabhair and Finvarra and a host of others in the book.

The cover looks fantastic!

Just a random question though, is there ever going to be another book after The Book of Dreams?

Ah, cannot wait for this to come out! My grandfather is from Ireland and he bought me The Summer King, ever since then I have been in love with this series and he enjoys my enthusiasm about my Irish heritage!

Can't wait!

Yay! I'm a little slow...I read your other blog but never remember to check this one. But the cover is great! I think I'm going to have to read the other three books again! I have read so many books in between I'm not sure I can remember whats in the first 3! I can't wait to read it! Very exciting! Do you have an exact date for the spring yet?
