WIZARD COVER!

Here's a first glimpse of the cover for my 'Official Movie Guide' to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey...


The book will be published in the autumn in anticipation of the film's release on 14 December. Exciting, eh?

Can't wait! Will there be any more sneak peaks leading up to the release?

Brian Sibley said...

Possibly, don't know yet... The embargo has only JUST (today) been lifted on the cover...

JJR said...

Really enjoyed the LOTR guide. Noticed they're already sold out on Amazon.co.uk so I'll pre-order if they get it back in stock :)

KingAragorn said...

Very exciting! Will it be released on 14 December? Or possibly a little earlier (or later)?

Boll Weavil said...

Does the Unexpected Journey refer to your peregrinations around LA airport? Seriously, I hope that the splitting of the final film(thank you, Harry Potter!) means that there will be 3 companions too. Fingers crossed. Hope the holiday's going sunnily. (RGP)

Wow! Can't wait to read it. Terrific cover.

KingAragorn – The publication date I currently have is 26 October 2012.

Boll – Thank you!!

MG – My first copy sold! :)

RGPThree books? Summer book sales are not comparable with Christmas ones, so we don't yet know the answer to that question...

Brian Sibley said...

Sharon – Thank you! I'm pleased with how it's turned out...

Snow White Archive said...

Very exciting! Can't wait.

Congrats, the end of your journey... write a book is a long journey. I'm sure there will be a spanish version, like your othe LOTR books.

I hadn't realized that film #3 will come out in summer. Somehow it just feels wrong - or am I the only person who feels that Tolkien belongs to Christmas? (RGP)

Brian Sibley said...

Thanks for all your nice comments: I do hope everyone will feel that the content lives up to the very arresting cover!

RGP – Yes, they are definitely tales for a winter's night!

By the way, JJR, as much as I'd like to believe that Amazon.uk have already sold out, I doubt it very much! The book has only just gone to the printers!! I suspect that is the standard message for a book not yet in stock... But please DO pre-order! :)

JJR said...

Looks like you were right. They had the book for sale when I first checked but then it disappeared after a day. Showed up later and I have not pre-ordered it :)

JJR said...

Well that's embarrassing! Supposed to say "now" instead of "not"!

Brian,I'd just like to say thank you. I've read you're Harry potter book, LOTR book and Peter jacksons biography and they have brought so much joy to my life. I honestly can't say how excited I am to read this one for the hobbit. I love finding out about I film making and the biography I found very touching and am sad I've finished it. You should write another biography for Peter sometime post lovely bones or even yourself! (I'd love to heard your story). So can I say thank you again and say I hope you enjoy every bit of the amazing things you get to do with your job.

Dear Anonymous (!), Thank you so much for your kind comments: much appreciated! I'd love to update PJ's biography, but, unfortunately, he's such a busy man that I'm not sure he'll ever have time to give me the necessary interviews!
