COVER REVEAL | The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson.
"In her weakest moment, Rory will find her true strength."
When The Shadow Cabinet cover brief was issued, Commissioning Editor Sara O’Connor mentioned that Maureen’s Shades of London fans would probably appreciate the cover looking similar to the first two books published by HarperCollins.
I recognised the font (Bleeding Cowboy Pro) and had seen model / photographer Chiara Fersini’s work before. The new Rory had shorter hair and unfortunatly all of the available Chiara photos did not, so we contacted Chiara directly and commissioned a photo shoot. Chiara looked slightly different without her long wavy hair so we opted for a side profile shot without direct eye contact with the camera. With regards to colour, red and icy blue were already used, so we went with purple. - Jet Purdie, Art Director
The Shadow Cabinet will be out in February 2015.

Many of you have asked me, "Maureen, what is going on with The Boy in the Smoke?" And I have puffed on my cigar and looked at you enigmatically before spinning in my chair. Because I could not tell you, even though I knew.
Now I can tell you. And I shall.

THIS IS THE BEST NEWS I’VE RECEIVED ALL DAY!!!!!
MJ always claims that her twitter followers live in jars. I figure this means that each bit of "wisdom" from her fills a jar which means we're going to have a LOT of jarfuls of wisdom.
