MONSTER WAR – UK Cover

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Pin It Share 0 Reddit 0 StumbleUpon 0 Google+ 0 0 Flares ×

The last few posts have been about non-NIGHTMARE ACADEMY stuff, so I thought it might be a good time to get back to basics and share the UK cover for NIGHTMARE ACADEMY 3: MONSTER WAR. The book is, in all ways, an escalation of the story and this cover really reflects that. Here you go (and you can click on it a couple times to make it bigger):

It comes out in the UK this summer (June, I think) and in the US the following summer in 2010. And, yes, I know how disappointed some folks are in the US that it’s going to take so long. The US publisher is planning to release Books 1 and 2 this summer in paperback, followed by Book 3 the following summer. Just so you know, publishing dates aren’t up to me — I just write ’em. I only hope that, when Book 3 finally DOES arrive in the US, you’ll agree that it was worth the wait.

Take care…

    Book 3
    Hello D,
    Nice cover!!
    I could run a competition back in the U.K to win copies of book three.
    And maybe send to lucky winners in the U.S.
    What do you think?

    Wow. The Brits know how to make a cover. How could you know want to pick that up if you saw it on the shelf? Has the UK cut a deal for you to write book 4 yet? Just in case, I’m gonna shoot the Queen an email and call in a favor.

      Re: monster war
      I feel your pain! I wish it could come out this summer as well, but the publishing schedules aren’t set by me. I don’t want you to die, however, so you might consider ordering the UK edition from Amazon UK — it comes out this June.
      Hope that helps!

      Re: when will book 3 com out in the USA?
      Hey there. Thanks so much for your (and your brother’s) enthusiasm! Unfortunately, I don’t have any control over the publication dates for the books and the publication of MONSTER WAR in the US is set at late summer 2010.
      However, a great edition from the UK (England) comes out this summer in June 2009 and can be ordered online from Amazon UK and Waterstones if you’re really desperate to get it right away. Those links are HERE and HERE. I’ll tell you more about it as the release date approaches in the UK and I’ll also tell you more about extras that you’ll find in the US edition as that release date approaches.
      Take care…

    I still don’t get why your first book nightmare academy turned into monster hunters.

      Re: nemo (nobody)
      Well, the publishers decided that they wanted to add the subtitle because the rest of the books in the series have subtitles, so now book 1 is known as Nightmare Academy: Monster Hunters.
      Hope that helps!

    Alright…We all agree The Nightmare Academy Series are good books. But don’t ou all recon they are a bit of a weird plot? Dotn get my wrong i love them. But Dean, where did you get the idea to write the series?

    June 18, 2009 at 10:07 am Reply
    • deanlorey

      Well, I agree they’re a little weird… but then I’m a little weird. :)
      As for where the idea came from, I wanted to write a book about nightmares having real and terrible consequences and I also wanted to write a book that would show where the monsters under our beds come from, so I decided to put those two ideas together and the NIGHTMARE ACADEMY series was born. Hope that helps…

    Book 3
    Hey Dean,
    I just ordered in the 3rd book from Amazon, and i finished it within a couple of days. I was wondering, as for the ending, i just wanted to make sure you were writing another one?

      Re: Book 3
      The first three books complete the first trilogy. I’m planning a second trilogy as a follow up. Now that you’ve finished the third book, you can sort of see what the next trilogy is going to be about. I’ll post more about it in a future update. Thanks for your interest!

      Re: #4
      Thanks a lot for your nice comments! I just finished writing the extras for the US release of Book 3 and I’m including an additional chapter, one that takes place right after the end of MONSTER WAR. I don’t want to spoil anything for those that haven’t been able to read it yet, but the chapter is called THROUGH THE MONSTER PORTAL. I will post it on my website once the book releases in the US so readers everywhere can take a look…

      I’d like for there to be one but I don’t have any plans for one currently. MONSTER WAR completes the first trilogy. I have another trilogy I’d like to write to follow the first, but someone has to want to publish it first. :)

    the date
    hi dean, my names charlotte and i come from england. im only ten, but love your books. i’ve nearly finshed monster war it will only take another day 4 me 2 finsh it! i got charlies monsters last year sometime but thought it would be realy scary,so i only plucked up the crouge to read it untill 2 weeks before christmas but my mum would’nt buy me the other books till christmas!(i read real quick!) but don’t find it that scary, mind u at the moment i hav’ent got many friends, yet the ones i do think im a creep now coz i laughed when stephine wrote that victoria’s head was ripped of so i think u agree im a bit creepy. (a lot creepy) i only read books that are all out, (coz i cant bare the suspense!)but i thought they were all out , i know u havent wrote the 4th book yet but once u have would u post back and see when the 4th book will be out in the uk?

      I promise that when (if…) there’s a fourth book, I will blog about it LOUDLY! :)
      You might like to know that I’ve finished one more chapter that takes places after the end of MONSTER WAR. It will be published as an “extra” in the US edition but I will also put it online for anyone to read for free when Book 3 publishes in the US this summer.
      And I don’t think you’re creepy at all. :)

    the end
    hi dean, when u write the 6th book never make a ending, like when j.k.rowling’s “19 years later” or once they grew up chapter coz if u ever want to go back to writing the same story the charcters would have to be older

      Hi There-
      I am so glad you are a READING FANATIC! The more you read the better your writing will become.
      Ask your local librarian for suggestions on other books and authors.
      Right now, Monster War is the last book in the trilogy of the Nightmare Academy series. Down the road I would like to conitnue the adventures with Charlie and his friends.
      Happy Reading-
      Dean Lorey
