Here it is – the first of three covers reveals for Paper Road Press’s upcoming 2020 releases!
Last year, award-winning artist Emma Weakley created the covers for Andi C. Buchanan’s From a Shadow Grave and the very first Year’s Best Aotearoa New Zealand Science Fiction & Fantasy (Both of which are eligible for the Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best Professional Artwork – nominations close 31 March!).
This year, I asked Emma to create cover artwork for Octavia Cade’s climate thriller The Stone Wētā. I’m thrilled with what she came up with. Gorgeously ugly and totally eye-grabbing. I can’t wait to see that face glaring out at me from my bookshelf.
The Stone Wētā comes out on 22 April – Earth Day, appropriate for a book that is so focused on what people would be willing to do to protect, or exert control over, our planet.
