Razorland Unveiled


Here’s my lovely, lovely cover. There will be tweak(s) in the final version, but nothing major. What do you think? Does it make you want to read the book? I’ll have some ARCs to give away soon and I’m looking to take your temperature on it. It’s dystopian post-apocalyptic YA with a tough girl heroine, Deuce, and the brooding emo boy, Fade, who fights beside her as her partner in the subterranean tunnels where they live.

Anyone interested in this?

ETA: I’ve made a Razorland Sampler (first two chapters) available on my website in both .pdf and .epub.

    About the boy, Karen, he looks like a young Ryan Phillippe doesn’t he?

    Even though I’m an older reader and not a “YA” this books sounds fantastic and I’d love to read it. I love the cover, very evocative of a post-apocalyptic world.

  38. Ann Aguirre says:

    So who’s read the excerpt?

  39. janicu says:

    I would love to read this one. Read the excerpt – and liked it! :) I want to know more about Fade’s backstory and what was on that piece of paper. *goes off to look up when this book is supposed to come out… ack, 2011!*

  40. Wow Anne this looks great. I would definitely want to read this if I saw it on a shelf. Congrats on a great cover. Plus, the cover quote is pretty cool! :)

  41. vanessa jaye says:

    Love the cover, read the excerpt, they both rock. Not entering for an ARC (I’m an unreliable and sucky reviewer) but this is going on my tbr list.

  42. Julie Swaney says:

    The cover is great!!! The story sounds like it will be a wonderful read. Can’t wait to read it.

  43. Ina says:

    Hi Ann!
    oh my, the cover is gorgeous!!!! I saw it on another blog earlier and I fell immediately in love with it :)
    can’t wait to preorder it *gg*
    greetings, Ina

  44. Shéa says:

    Interested? Oh, so, SO interested. I know it’s YA, but frankly my dear, I don’t give a darn. I luuurves me some post-apocalypse!

    I love the cover, too. Would definitely pick it up if I saw that sitting on the shelf!

  45. Karen in Texas says:

    Wow! Loved the chapters and now I’m itching to read it all. By the way the cover is great!

  46. Cassie says:

    Hi Anna!! I’m from México
    Before than nothing i want to say that the cover is Awesome!!
    Also i want to know when it’s goin to be published this book??

    Saludos desde México

  47. Joe Iriarte says:

    I would love to read this, because YA is what I write. You’ve just wandered from Lisaland into Joe Territory! ;) (Alas, no, I have not read the sampler. I have O/C tendencies, and simply cannot begin reading it until I have the whole thing in my grubby little fingers. I would love to win an ARC, but if I don’t, you know Lisa and I will buy this book as soon as it comes out.)

    BTW, Lisa hasn’t seen you on Twitter lately but she just finished Hell Fire and she says it’s your best one yet!

  48. Ann Aguirre says:

    Oh yay! I’m glad she feels that way. I was awfully proud of Hell Fire and I am even more proud of Shady Lady.

  49. Has says:

    Love love love the cover!!!! :D
    It looks very gritty and dark and almost steampunkish! :D

  50. KMont says:

    ACK! HOW did I miss this? Love it!! Must go read excerpt. ;)

  51. KMont says:

    I read some of the excerpt and am liking it! The cover and story is giving me that Mad Max kind of vibe.

  52. Jenn Bennett says:

    Excerpt is incredible. Can’t wait to see the final cover with the tweaks!

  53. Jenn says:

    Oh I can’t wait!! I love the first book! I need to read the sample chapters NOW! Yah for the giveaway!

  54. Mandy says:

    Meh. That’s not at all how I pictured them in the books. I’ll have to ignore the cover when I get to this one so it doesn’t ruin the image I have built up in my mind after reading the first two books. I’m moving on to book 3 now.

  55. Trinity Ackerman says:

    Hi! I wanted to tell you that I LOVE your books! I think you should make a movie out of it. I feel if you gave a director permission to make this into a movie I would play a excellent Deuce. After reading your Razorland series I have hoped and prayed that you let a director make a movie out of this excellent triology! Please contact me from the following Email address if you are deciding to let this series be turned into a movie! [email protected] Thank you. Have a nice day. Also Deuce should have longer hair!
