That New Book Feeling

Bellewether first copies
The doorbell rang as I was putting my coat on to head out to pick up my youngest from school.

I wasn't expecting a package. I didn't have time for distractions. The snow (yes, in April) was still coming down, and I had to get going or give up all hope of a place in the parking lot.

But I still answered the doorbell. And there was the courier, holding the box sent by Simon & Schuster of my first Canadian copies of Bellewether.


This is my thirteenth book. I have been published for twenty five years. And the feeling of opening that box of first copies, fresh from the printers, and holding an actual book in my hands after years of building something out of nothing, from the tiniest of glimmering ideas to a growing mess of words on a computer to this thing of total beauty that has pages and a cover—that, for me, remains a thrill.

This is, as I've said, the Canadian edition, which will be on shelves here in a few weeks, starting April 24th.

My American publishers, Sourcebooks, will be bringing out Bellewether in the USA on August 7th. The covers are very different, but I love them both.

Here's a short video I made with my cover designer in the States, giving a bit of insight into her process:

Which means, of course, that when August comes around, I'll have another box of brand new books to open, and I'll get to enjoy that first book feeling all over again!

In the meantime, I'm going to celebrate today with a giveaway.

See that copy of Bellewether there on the top of the box in the photo? I'll choose one winner at random to send it to, from those who leave comments below between now and midnight on Sunday, April 08, 2018.

Thieftaker300You can comment however you like, but what I'm really curious about is this:

Have you ever bought a book simply because of the cover? I have—I bought D.B. Jackson's Thieftaker, because I thought the cover was just stunning. What about you?

  1. I love both the covers for Bellewether; the Canadian one shows some of the history and relays a sense of loss, but the American one has a magical quality to it.
    No, I don’t buy a book purely because of its cover, although that could be what attracts in the first place. I need to read the blurb and get a sense of what the story might be and this will be the deciding factor in whether or not I purchase the book.

  6. The cover on Thieftaker caught my eye also. After reading the blurb, I immediately bought it. The cover on Bellweather would also make me check it out. Covers that are artistically done well attract me because I think that if so much time, talent, and effort have been put into the cover, then even more time, talent, and effort have gone into the book. Of course the blurb and the author’s past books help me make the final decision to purchase. Thank you for keeping me entertained.

  11. Yes, covers can grab me. I first look for authors I like, but as I am browsing, if I see a cover that catches my attention, I will pick it up, read the blurb and that cover will generally make me want to believe what I read.
    The Thieftaker is quite an eye catcher.

  26. Generally, the cover can catch my eye and convince me to take a closer look, but I won’t buy based only on the cover. Of course, I read a lot of sci-fi, too, but their covers are never as good/representative of the story, and romance covers can be so unrelated to the story and generic…. most of the time they are disappointing. I do love your American cover for Bellewether, and I loved the Firebird’s cover too!

  46. I am always drawn to a book cover with an old house, particularly with a gothic feel. I don’t like scary books, so not a house that looks scary, but a house that looks like it has secrets. I have found some wonderful new authors simply because of gothic house book covers.

  51. I bought a hardcover copy of The Book Jumper by Mechthild Glaser while on holiday in Edinburgh. On the cover, two figures stand on the open pages of a book. One is a knight in papery armour; the other is a woman in a flowing white papery dress. She appears to be twirling. It’s pure magic.

  71. A book cover can definitely make me pick up a book to take a look, but the story still has to grab me before I would buy it. That said, I would buy any book that you wrote regardless of the cover; I have been looking forward to reading Bellewether for so long now! There are a few authors whose books I buy as soon as they are released, and you are on that short list. Thanks so much for the chance to do that sooner rather than later!

  86. I like the American one because it is different from any of the covers I have seen from all your other books. It is simple yet elegant and leaves much to the imagination as you don’t really get a sense of what the book is about until you get into it. I like surprises so I can’t wait to read it!

  91. I absolutely love the Canadian cover for BELLEWEATHER– it goes so well with the one already sitting so nicely on my shelf. 🙂 I love the American one, too, but the Canadian one just speaks to me.
    I have bought many books over the years based on the cover. The ones that stand out the most are City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare– this cover:

    The other one was Dreams Made Flesh, by Anne Bishop, which is an anthology set in her Black Jewels world, which I had never read before. That sent me down a rabbit hole to get the rest of the series and I have become a huge fan.

    The other one was Dreams Made Flesh, by Anne Bishop, which is an anthology set in her Black Jewels world, which I had never read before. That sent me down a rabbit hole to get the rest of the series and I have become a huge fan.

  101. All of your books have been marvelous and so can’t wait for this one! Both covers are stunning. I am enticed to pick up books by their covers and titles. I can’t say I’ve ever for certain bought one just for that, but it’s part of the experience, and when a book speaks to me then it has to be mine.

  121. As for the saying, “You can’t judge a book by its cover,” I take a bit of an issue with that. Covers are like invitations. I am an avid reader, and have purchased quite a few books just because of the cover. I think I bought my first Susanna Kearsley novel because of the cover. Not only did I discover a new author, but I fell for n love with Scotland!
    Bring on Bellewether!

  126. I can’t say I’ve purchased a book based on the cover art, it’s usually the blurb on the cover that summarizes the book that hooks me. Mind you, if a book has an ugly cover it may deter me from purchasing. It depends.

  131. I have been tempted by a book cover to read the summary but have never read the book because of the cover. I did read the Winter Sea as the book cover and title did intrigue me. It was the first book of yours that I read and I have read everything you have written ever since. I am looking forward to the release of Bellewether. Sad that we here in the US have to wait until August. It was an honor to meet you here in Vero Beach, Fl. when you were on tour with The Firebird. Hoping that you will come our way again someday.

  151. The 1st book of yours that I ever bought was The Shadowy Horses, I loved the cover, but the blurb on the front that compared the book to a Barbara Michaels book is what sold me. I loved The Shadowy Horses so much I found a used copy of Marianna and that was it.. I was hooked. So it is not always the cover, sometimes it is the comparison to other authors that I like that make me try a new author.

When I was little and would go to the bookmobile I would run my fingers along the book and only choose one that a plastic cover and than I would look at the picture on front and if it didn’t appeal to my youthful senses I would put it back! Of course now as an adult I have matured greatly and will read a paperback but the cover has to grab me first than I will read the description of the book! I have always loved your book covers they always grab my attention!! I’m so excited to read you newest book!

  176. I have most certainly bought books because of their cover! Sometimes I have been attracted to books at used bookstores simply because they are dog earred and appear well loved. One or my favourites was by Frank Baker and was published in 1940. It’s called Miss Hargreaves and is a wonderfully funny book about a man who creates a woman out of his imagination and it backfires in the most interesting ways.
    I would love to win a copy of Belleweather. Thanks for the opportunity!

  177. I have most certainly bought books because of their cover! Sometimes I have been attracted to books at used bookstores simply because they are dog earred and appear well loved.

  181. Absolutely! If I’m just browsing without really knowing what I’m looking for, the cover is the first thing I look for. Some of my favorite books were picked that way. I discovered you a few years ago after Diana Gaboldon recommended you but your covers are beautiful also!!

  186. I bought Jamaica Inn because of the cover. Also, I really enjoy Daphne… but I was intrigued by the foggy scene! I wanted to stand there in front of the house. After reading it, not so much. 😛
    And my in-laws bought The Winter Sea for me just because of the cover. So glad they did!

  191. Only once have I ever bought a book simply because of the cover. It was In Search of Eden by Linda Nichols. The cover had a postmarked envelope from the town I lived in! At that point, I didn’t care what it was about, that was just too neat to pass up. It ended up being a good book, if not exactly the type of novel I normally read.

  196. I frequently buy books because of their covers and as a child, I checked them out of the Library for the same reason. Likely my absolute first love for covers was Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry. Both my parents worked when I was a child and I spent many hours at our neighborhood library and have been a voracious reader all my life. Who needs TV when there are books! Congratulations and best wishes for success with your new novel. I look forward to the American release of Bellewether!

However, a good cover attracts me and I’ll take a closer look at the book to see if it’s truly something I’d be interested in reading. I enjoy all your books and like the similarity in the covers of the character from behind looking out.

I have read every book you have published since the first and will continue to read them as soon as a new one comes out. Thank you for beautiful writing! I look forward to reading Bellewether!

  281. Several times, including the Winter Sea which is how I was introduced to all your wonderdul books. While I love both covers for Belleweather, I wish I could get my hands on the Canadian version since it better matches all your other books on my shelf. Either way, I can’t wait to read this!

  296. I’m often attracted by the cover, but I always read the info on the back cover before deciding. Mostly I stick with my favorite authors, and you are at the top of that list! I would love a copy of the Canadian edition to have that cover, but also because I won’t have to wait until August to read the book! (And even if I win, I will buy the American edition because I love that cover, too.)

  301. I absolutely cannot wait for this book to come out. So much so I pre purchased the Canadian version from Amazon.ca I have also just purchased a book based on the cover. But once I get to know and love an author, the cover no longer matters. Although, I do appreciate a beautiful cover no matter what.

  306. A book cover will absolutely peak my interest in a book, then I read the back cover copy to see if it’s the kind of book I truly would like. Sometimes, though, if the price is right, my judgement for purchase is based solely on the cover design. Susanna, your covers are always beautiful and inviting!

  321. Susanna Kearsley’s novels have always held my fascination of historical fiction with a touch of some paranormal activity to transport the reader along with the main character further into the story. Seeing the front cover is an invitation to what is inside to intrigue the reader to open the book to another world. What is this woman staring at, while viewing the shoreline? A mystery waiting to be told and maybe to be solve too. Her writing is an easy story telling style to the reader’s mind’s eye in creating the atmosphere and environment. I truly looking forward to this new book…Thank you!

You have no idea why, or what the book is about. You just know you have to have it. Some of my favorite books have been chosen that way. That happened with me and The Winter Sea years ago. I suppose it’s some form of destiny. Some way of the universe saying that something in that book will help change and mold us. Either way, the covers to Belleweather are gorgeous!

  351. Ottessa Moshfegh’s “Homesick for Another World” collection sounded interesting but it was the cover, with that 50’s-looking spaceship on it, that really sold me. I liken buying a book for its cover to choosing a race horse because you like the color of the jockey’s silks. I’ve also been known to buy a book because the author’s name was interesting – Moshfegh’s book wins on both fronts.

  381. I will pick up a book because of its cover, or title, but I will buy a book because of its contents (as much as I can tell about it), or because of its author. I buy your books because you wrote them. I have a short list of authors on auto – buy. I read The Shadowy Horses when I stumbled across it in the library, mostly because of the word “Horses” and then the blurb contents. Then I bought a copy. Then I bought Named of the Dragon and you were an auto – buy. Looking forward to many more. p. s. I just recently found/bought (ebook) Every Secret Thing and I so enjoyed it. Thank you.

  386. I definitely look at book covers. And I always feel bad that the author has no say in them. I loved the covers for Winter Sea and the Rose Garden. Shadowy Horses was very mysterious. My eye is always drawn to the cover and then read the back to see if I would like it or not. I’m really excited your new book is out! Don’t you love how new books smell and feel? 🙂

  401. I remember quite vividly discovering Phyllis Whitney because of the cover of Black Amber. (I was a teenager in the school library.) This was the version with Istanbul and grey clouds that filled the cover. I wanted to read that book. The blurb just confirmed that YES! I needed this book. And yes — later in life, I did track down the hardback with that EXACT jacket on it to HAVE FOR MY VERY OWN. I loved that book because the inside delivered on what the outside promised.
    I was also quite annoyed with other covers for that book. They never quite captured what I felt was the essence of the book the way the original (or original to me) had.
    I did later discover Mary Stewart, but that cover of Black Amber is what pulled me into gothics.

I always have my favourite authors that I’ll go looking for at a bookstore but then if there aren’t any new books from that selection I’ll browse and see what draws me in…. often from the cover! I’ve been reading your books since you first published Marianna and am eagerly awaiting Bellewether 🙂

  411. I have bought a couple of books based on the cover alone. Sometimes it really pays off, and others not so much. I actually sort of decided on my first book by you because of the cover. I loved the cover for Winter Sea and was like “The summary looks interesting. I’ll put it on the list and give it a shot.” After I read that one I had to go read all the others I could get my hands on. I got the Powder Mage trilogy by sight alone, and couldn’t put it down. The next one comes out in May, so I’ll read that while my mother is reading my copy of Bellewether. I promised her she could read the book first when we got it because she’s been waiting longer. She read the excerpt in the back of Named of the Dragon and has wanted the new book ever since.

  416. While many of the books I read are authors I love- like yours, I am a sucker for a great cover. I love to look through the stacks at the bookstore, the local library and online. I’m pretty sure it’s how I discovered the Thieftaker series. Relishing the most recent collection of short stories featuring Ethan!
    I can wait, if I must until August but would love the chance to read Belleweather. It seems like I’ve already been waiting a long time for it!

Even tho I now read on kindle I enjoy the cover art. Congrats on the completion, I look forward to the read!

  436. Thank you so much for sharing the two covers with us, Susanna! They are certainly different but both beautiful. I am guilty of buying most of my books online and so often never give the cover a thought, but I visit my local independent bookstore at least once a month, and there I occasionally succumb to the combination of an interesting title and cover. Two in particular in the last few years were Of Books and Bagpipes by Paige Shelton – which just looked and sounded like fun — and Golden Hill, A Novel of Old New York by Francis Spufford (a fantastic book, by the way!). I’m also a sucker for a blurb by an author I enjoy, and I noticed you have one by Diana Gabaldon on your Canadian copy – marvelous!! Can’t wait to read Bellewether!

  446. So happy for you, Susanna! I really love your books, especially the way you create the feel of the place and the era, and so look forward to reading Bellewether too, as soon as it is available in my country.
    And to answer your question, as a rule, no, I do not buy a book solely based on its cover. There is one memorable exception though- a book came up one day in my Amazon recommendations, as Amazon is wont to tempt people. Had never heard of the author. The book was The Scent of Water and the author Elizabeth Goudge but it was so profound a read that it made me a committed reader of Elizabeth Goudge. (If you have a look at the ebook cover, you will understand why it was such an impulse buy).

  449. So happy for you, Susanna! I really love your books, especially the way you create the feel of the place and the era, and so look forward to reading Bellewether too, as soon as it is available in my country.
    And to answer your question, as a rule, no, I do not buy a book solely based on its cover. There is one memorable exception though- a book came up one day in my Amazon recommendations, as Amazon is wont to tempt people. Had never heard of the author. The book was The Scent of Water and the author Elizabeth Goudge but it was so profound a read that it made me a committed reader of Elizabeth Goudge.

  456. Yes, I have bought a book because of the cover before, but I usually try to find out more about the book first. I can just buy any book by Susanna Kearsly and never be disappointed.

  462. I don’t purchase books for their covers. But I did initially look at your books because Athena Winter Sea cover was stunning. Since then you’ve become a “must click” author for me, regardless of the cover. Having said that, I would love to own the Canadian cover of your newest release as it is quite lovely and fits so nicely with your other titles. Regardless, I will be clicking and reading as soon as it is released in the U.S.

  476. The cover has drawn me in and then I’ve examined a book and bought it but I’ve never bought a book just because of the cover. Many of the books I love have bad cover art. Wait, isn’t there a saying about judging a book by its cover??!! LOL

  486. The cover of a book is what first attracts a reader, and makes them curious enough to turn a paperback book over to read the blurb on the back, or to open a hardcover to read the summary on the inner fold of the bookjacket. It definitely warms the cockles of a reader’s heart when the story within a book lives up to the promise of the cover illustration. The story and the cover illustration then become indelibly entertwined in the reader’s memory. Of course, some of my favorite books have no book jackets on them, or colorfully illustrated covers, which would lend credence to the old adage that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Your novels, Ms. Kearsley, fall within the category of books with memorable covers AND unforgettable stories, but – I must say that even if your novels were bound within plain unadorned covers, they would still be counted as some of my very favorite books simply based on the wonderful stories within them.

  491. I buy books based on the cover all the time. I’m pretty sure it was the cover combined with the title that lured me into purchasing “The Winter Sea.”
    And it happened twice. I purchased it, but something (I’ve long since forgotten what) interrupted my reading then. Several years later, I was attracted to it again (by cover and title), but I couldn’t find my original copy, so I bought it again. That time, I devoured it. Not too long ago, when rearranging bookshelves, I found the other copy. Now I’m doubly blessed.

  496. Yes, The Rose Garden was sitting, spine up on a table of used books for sale at my library. That’s how I was introduced to your books. It remains one of my favorites. To feel the pull of the atmosphere of the story by seeing the cover is an art. Wonderful to get two covers for each book you publish! Congrats, can’t wait.

  501. I don’t think I have bought a book by the cover, but I did once buy a book based on the author name. I was looking for something new and saw the author Anne Gracie. Because my daughter is Anna and my niece is Grace, I tried a new author and have never regretted it and in fact enjoyed her books for years!
