Here are the UK covers for MADHOUSE and DEATHWISH (which should be out either by now or sometime in July–check your bookstores. The UK DOUBLETAKE will be released in August. I have many devoted wonderful UK fans who buy the Cal books on Amazon US when they come out here. That is absolutely fantastic fan-love–wanting it the very day it comes out and not wanting to wait until it’s available in Britain, Canada and NZ. But one unfortunate side efffect of that massive love is that everyone has already bought their copy by the time the UK versions are released. The UK publishers are trying to get the series in synch, so hopefully by next year when Cal 8 (SLASHBACK) is released in the US, it will come out at the same time in the UK with the British cover plus larger trade cover size. However, if no one is buying them, well…that’s the publishing world. No sales=no books. This is your chance to get Cal released in your country at the same time as the US release and to support the lovely British publishers who went to bat to make this happen. Please consider buying the UK versions and a huge thanks to those who do!

    I must say, as much as I love and adore the US versions, the UK covers are just as gorgeous. Now I want them. I totally agree with the other comments that the UK model has Cal down to a tee. Ooh, those are soooo pretty~

    If only I had enough disposable income right now to scoop up the UK versions on Darn you bills!

    I can’t remember the names of the models but I really liked the guy on the american covers of moonshine and Roadkill.

    But I love these covers just as much.

    And the reason is this, because both these models have Cal’s deathstare down to a t.

    This guy on the brittish cover (and the guy on MS and RK) emulates Cal is every way I though possible.

    He’s brilliant.

    It would be amazing if they came out at the same time. I’m in Ireland and since i had to buy Doubletake of i had to wait until May to get it. And then it was delayed by 2 weeks. But i have the American cover so it was worth it XD

    Gorgeous covers, Rob. I hope your UK sales soar and you can get the whole thing sync’d up.

    All right! Excellent! Much closer to, not necessarily the US version, but the descriptions in the books. Cal has a much sharper edge here, and the hair is right! lol Only misstep I see is the representing of Delilah on the MadHouse cover. Long waist length hair? Otherwise, stellar covers, good job, UK! 🙂

  • Theresa

    Yeah, trips my switch……..that’s CAL. Still like the US version, but can’t complain about this!

    • Shan

      Did you get a copy of the book, or is that just an image file? It kind of looks like it’s similar in style to the first tgiroly, with the matte cover and glossy characters. I think it will be good if it maintains that style; that’s what caught my eye to buy these books in the first place, after all.

  • Sarah M

    Okay…. seriously gonna have to order these from Amazon.UK….. I’m in LOVE with these covers, and truthfully, one can never have enough Cal in their life (plus my daughter keeps stealing books from me, so duplicates are ALWAYS a good thing in my house)

  • Deidre

    Those are some seriously yummy covers. LOVE IT. 😀
