the real die-hard readers of this site will remember a time, quite long ago, when I was helping a friend with her book launch. well that friend has since had her novel snapped up by Angry Robot publishers, who have bought the first novel and are paying her to write a sequel, and have also insisted on a new cover to go with an international launch (Moxyland will be launching in the UK and Australia – read about all the details here). i’m very sentimental about the old cover because it took up a very real part of my life, but i like the new cover too. here are both:
The South African launch cover, designed by Joey Hifi. Click the image to see more of his awesome work.
The UK / Australia Angry Robot version.
The new cover definitely takes the book into teen territory, which may or may not make Lauren a billionaire (achoo-Twilight). Anyway I look most forward to watching Lauren take over the world, one Moxyland at a time. And now for a picture of the author in repose with her beautiful daughter:
Too cute. That's a baby creative genius right there.

introducing Chatta Box. it comes in a tetrapak, so you can take it pretty much anywhere (it’s resealable) but even better, it’s recyclable.
thanks to Nick for the pics of the launch. definitely a product to look out for over summer.
lots of pretty colours and pretty girls, the launch was at the Planetarium in Cape Town last thursday at 4pm.
not a great shot of the POS or the packaging but you get the idea:
