Cover Reveal: The Thorn of Emberlain

You can imagine how excited we are to be revealing this particular cover. Yes! We’re looking to publish The Thorn of Emberlain before the end of 2015. We have sat on the secret of its dramatic plot turn for some long while and on this stunning image from Alejandro Colucci while Scott took a look at it, but now we just have to let you see it.

A Special Message from Simon Spanton on the Publication of The Republic of Thieves

So here we are. The Republic Of Thieves, Scott’s third novel, is published today. Finally Locke Lamora and Jean Tannen are back on the streets and up to all sorts of no good. It’s been a while… Scott’s second novel Red Seas Under Red Skies came out in 2007. His first, The Lies of Locke Lamora in 2006.

The Making of The Republic of Thieves Book Trailer (a special guest post)

The Republic of Thieves is nearly here (in bookshops on Thursday)! All this week we’ll be counting down the days until publication. Tomorrow we’ll be revealing the epic trailer created by the incredible filmmaker Milena Aijala. Trust us, it is not only epic but stunning.  When we found Milena’s trailer for The Lies of Locke Lamora on Vimeo we knew that we wanted to work with her to create the perfect trailer for The Republic of Thieves and over the past few months we’ve been quietly plotting away. Milena has done an amazing job and we can’t wait to share…
