The Legend Thief Cover!

I'm momentarily emerging from my writing marathon to give a quick update. The Legend Thief is now moving into its third and hopefully last draft. The release date is moving from September 18, 2012 to December 4, 2012. S&S is moving it closer to Christmas to tap into some promotions they want to run, and not because I am pushing my deadlines. At least, that's what they're telling me. :)

In the meantime, here's the cover!
John Rocco did an amazing job! If you ask me, he really should've won the Caldecott for Blackout.

I'll post more soon...

Hi. This is Luke Marshall. I am David Butler's nephew. I really loved reading Return to Exile. Uncle Dave sent it to me. And if you don't believe me, just ask Dave. My favorite part of your book is when Sky, Crystal, Andrew, Phineas, T-bone and Hands are in the field with the Dovetail and Jack. It was really descriptive and I liked it. Can't wait til your next book comes out. Wish it weren't in December. But then again, my birthday is in December so I might get it for my birthday. And that would be cool!
