The colours in this version of the cover are better, they just need to add Sword of the Canon book one in there somewhere.
I got a reply back from Mark Curnow a Digital Marketing executive with Harper Collins Australia, they will try to get an extract up on the Voyager Blog http://voyagerblog.com.au/ sometime in October.
No promises, no exact date, but at least we know they are aware of at least some fan interest. More fans showing interest might help the prospects of an early October extract rather than a later one.
Paravia's website will act with an extract, too - usually one month out....sometimes I've timed it with the Australian one. You will not be left with no teaser...though - grin...the further out, the more you may WISH you had waited....;) There isn't much space for reflection in this one....
I like spoilers, so no worries here, and at least there will only be a month at most to wait by then to read the rest of the book. I am intrigued by what you could have cut off the beginning of our chapter 1 snippet that was such a give away. Only around 2 months to wait to find out, not long now.
And I also cannot wait to see my Scarpdale print and what interesting things might have been too small to notice there.
The new cover image has appeared in a few places now, even Harper Collins Canada has it up, Pity about the name problem Harper Collins Canada seems to have but it turns up if you search for the right name.
