Starsight Cover Reveal + Release Date


Last week, we got a cover reveal of the US edition of Starsight. It shows Spensa IN SPAAAACE! Probably due to all the stars or something. We also have a release date of November 26th, 2019, and you can preorder it now. This is later than the previous October release date because of the Starsight revision Brandon did.

What do you think of the cover? Let us know below! 

In other news, Stormlight 4 is at 10% of its rough draft, which given that Brandon targets 400,000 words for Stormlight books, means he's about 40,000 words into it, which is pretty exciting! 

The full art for the cover:

I kind of like it, but not as much as the first one for two main reasons:

  1. The first one had lots of purple, purple is objectively subjectively the best color.
  2. This design feels more juvenile. It kind of reminds me of covers for Magic Tree House and A to Z mysteries. I think I would have preferred something closer to the original cover, with Spensa in the center, but with her hair flowing outwards to represent anti-gravity-ness and the window behind her.

Is it the same artist that did the covers for alcatraz? it reminds me of that. I'll agree though, it does seem slightly juvenile. I don't know whether this was written scifi or children's though.

I actually like this one better. Close to symmetrical book covers always seem a little too perfect to me, so I appreciate the chance to an off center picture.

Why is there no upvote function on news comments?

Nice... I’m actually glad it’s not so overwhelmingly purple.
