Mission Clockwork--gorgeous German Edition

Well, yesterday I received the author's copies of the German version of The Hunchback Assignments (which is called Mission Clockwork: Attack on The British Empire--love that title). They're absolutely gorgeous. Please accept my apologies because I am about to gush with authorial joy...

Doesn't that look like the mouse will jump right off the cover? And they books are shrink-wrapped, too (in recyclable plastic!). The Germans think of everything. Here's the spine.

And the cool back cover:

The awesome interior:

And the 3D amazingly triumphant cover:

They really went totally steampunk on the book. And it's a good look. Now if only I could read German!

Thanks for listening to my gushing.


PS: Let's watch the trailer again, just for fun:
