American creecher


I had a bag of advance copies of the US edition of Mister Creecher today. The cover is pretty much the same as the UK edition, with subtle changes to the mist swirling around Monsieur Creecher himself and the change to a san serif font for the title.

The book is out in September, published by Bloomsbury US.

  1. Your cover art looks brilliant Chris. I'm looking forward to reading Mister Creecher. Are there any inside illustrations? Not that it will stop me reading, of course.

  2. Looking good. Did you do the cover art, Chris? It's wonderfully (and, I guess, suitably) creepy.

  3. Yes I did do the cover art and thanks the compliments. No - there are no inside illustrations. I wasn't sure whether you were wanting them or not!

  5. I would have liked them too, but I know they're a tricky prospect these days.

  6. Sorry about the lack of response for so long. Illustrations are a tricky thing. I think they can work for older books but they need to be right. There are lovely illustrations by Jim Kay in the Patrick Ness/Siobhan Dowd 'A Monster Calls'
