Welcome to my
online journal...

My name is Alexander Gordon Smith, and I'm the author of various books including The Inventors series and the brand new Furnace series.

This is my blog, and is where I talk about books, writing and, well, probably other stuff too...

Cover News! (Again!)

The brand new cover for Death Sentence has just been sent to me, and I love it! Okay it's certainly not as creepy as the original (posted below), but I do agree that it will appeal more to teenage readers, plus it definitely catches the dark, action-packed tone of the novel and it won't give me so many nightmares by being on my shelf!

What is everyone's verdict? Veiny Alex or scary warden?

Also FSG, my publisher in the States, have just sent through this awesome advert showing all the covers together. I like!

Thanks everyone! I'm glad you all like Veiny Alex, I do too! :-) That's definitely the cover now, which is awesome!

As far as I know, Death Sentence will be out in the States next summer. I'll let you know the actual release date as soon as I hear!
