"Scandal in sandals" sounds soooo naughty!

That's the Australian edition of IONIA SANCTION by Gary Corby. In case you're not Down Under, there's an American edition too:

Ha, I suppose it does sound like it could be a cheesy campaign for the Spartacus TV show!

I've been meaning to read these ever since reading about them on Nathan Bransford's blog, so thanks for reminding me. I like seeing the different covers, too!

There are great titles. Seldom a superb one. Scandal in Sandals

Gary Corby said...

Kristin, the covers are different, aren't they? Yet they both say something accurate about what's inside. Until I had my own to think about, I never realized what an art and science there is to covers. I've learned a lot of respect for the people who do this every day.

The US covers are drawn by Stefano Vitale, who was an artist in NY and who I believe now lives in Venice, Italy. The Oz cover was done by the talented Laura at Penguin's art department, and I owe them both for such terrific work.

Oz is a much smaller market than the US, but I hope both of you make a fortune. Kudos on getting him published down under.

Hi Gary!

I loved the first book. I haven't read this one yet, but I will. Don't you owe me a blog post or something?

Gary Corby said...

Hi Sha'el!

I'm currently depleting what little is left of my sanity to finish book 4 in the series, but that should leave me in a fine state to write you something.

For those who weren't here for the excitement, some years ago it was Sha'el Princess of Pixies who tracked me down after I submitted to Janet, and then promptly destroyed my own email address and web site. Which is why she has a big thank you under her mundane name in my first book.

Do I get an advanced reading copy of book three then?

Pixies can beg; this is a sample.
