Like the rest of the series, they will be available in a week!

Resistance Hardcover Reveal

Today is the reveal of the Resistance special edition hardcover! I went with a simple, clean vector art style for the dust jackets with elements and colors that would go with the original art on the case laminate. So much of Resistance takes place in the forest, and of course, Tyra had to be included.

Resistance 10th Anniversary Announcement

Can you believe that on May 20th it will have been 10 years since the release of Resistance?! I can't. It has been an amazing journey to see where God has brought Ilyon Chronicles over those ten years. I have some fun surprises coming this month to celebrate, plus here is a big announcement: Ilyon Chronicles will finally be available in hardcover! This is something I have been working on for SO long, and it seems really appropriate to finally have them ready for this anniversary.

One of the reasons why I'm so excited about these hardcovers is because I created special edition dust jackets for them! While the case laminate is the same as the paperbacks, the dust jackets are all new artwork. I'm really excited about how they turned out. Plus, each book will include some of my notes for planning the series so you can see how it all came together, how things developed, and where some things even changed along the way. 

Next week, starting on Monday, I will be revealing the new dust jackets here and on my social media, one each day. So, make sure you check back here or pop over to either Instagram or Facebook to see the reveals. The hardcovers will be available on May 20th. I also have a couple more fun surprises to celebrate that I will be sharing throughout the month leading up to that day, so stay tuned!
