In My Mailbox (19)

Thanks to Kristi at The Story Siren for hosting In My Mailbox every week.



Bought:

Magic Under Glass by Jaclyn Dolamore (signed)
Shadow Blade by Seressia Glass

I am fully aware of the controversy revolving around Magic Under Glass's cover and it's publishing house. I bought a copy, despite the cover controversy in order to support a local writer.

  1. I hope you enjoy the books. They're both on my TBR list! :)

  2. Sara, the cover is being re-vamped by Bloomsbury, so controversy averted. I sent a letter to them (one of many, I'm sure) asking them if they care that their authors might lose potential sales because of their cover snafu, and if then were they going to not re-contract for books by their authors. It could have been a big mess, and totally unfair to the author. I'm glad the cover is being redone, and I hope they pay attention in the future.

    I also hope you enjoy the book, which I've heard is an excellant read.

  3. Great books! It's great that you're supporting the authors, its unfair that the author has to lose sales because of the publisher. I will be buying the UK version though, so I will still be supporting Jaclyn. ;)

    Happy reading!

  4. I'm glad they're redoing the cover. I hope it leads to more sales for the author. :)

    Normally I would probably wait to get the revamped cover, but the author is from Orlando (ie near me) and she took the time to go around and sign stock, so I figured I'd support her now rather than later.

  6. Great selection! I'm glad they're re-doing the cover so the author doesn't loose sales but I'm looking forward to reading the book :o)

  7. I agree with your decision to buy Magic Under Glass. While I don't like the decision the publishing company made, it's a shame that a debut author should be hurt by this.

  8. I should also add that Shadow Blade by Seressia Glass is a novel about a person of color, and the Pocket Books did a great job choosing their cover model. I'm starting it now. Hopefully it's good. :)
