Dragon Moon Cover

The Dragon Moon cover has been finalised.
Here it is. I love it. It fits with the other two books but is bold and different as well.

Now all I have to do is finish writing the book! I’m working through the final draft with Ali, my editor, and then it goes to the printer next week.

  1. Oh my God!!!! I want to read it right now. But Im sad because maybe I have to wait some time Im from Mexico and it takes too long. Yesterday I finished the second part of this amazing history and I cant wait for the third one. Congratulations!! Carole your books are fantastic. Thank you for all the magical moments that you gave us.

  2. Tania,
    I’m afraid I can’t tell you when Dragon Moon will be available in Mexico. Thanks for your kind words and enthusiasm.

  3. I can’t believe that the books about to be released!!!!! yeah! i must say, the cover does look extra good! do you have an idea of when it’s gonna come out?

  4. Hi Carole,
    Do you have an idea of when you will release the book in australia? By the way, thankyou for putting flora and i’s artwork in!

  5. Hi carole,

    I just finished reading Garden of the purple dragon, and it was absolutely amazing! I love your dragon keeper series and i hope you are writing a third one, ‘cos i just cant wait to find out what happens next. If you are, what is the name of the book and when is it’s release date, so i can go and buy it asap! You are ma favourite author aand i hope you carry on writing!!!

  6. Jennifer, Lachlan, Claire,
    Glad you all like the cover. Dragon Moon is going to the printers tomorrow! It will be in the shops in April (in Australia).

  7. Will,
    That’s the cover of the next book on the series on this post. It’s called Dragon Moon and it will be out in April.

  8. can’t wait to get hold of it!! but i am a little dissapointed as it would take quite much time to reach america i just wish i was in austrailia now

  9. carole, i absolutely loved! your book dragon keeper but i was just wondering if you have a copy of garden of the purple dragon in U.S. edition?

  10. Sansthita,
    Sorry, I’m afraid there’s nothing I can do to change the publisher’s schedule.

    Glad you liked the book. Garden of the PD is due for release ‘in Spring’ int the US. That’s all I know. You could email Hyperion, the publishers to get a more exact date.

  11. Hi Carole i have recently read your book abot dragon keeper & dragon keeper: Garden of the PD and i must say i love them i have a question when whill dragon moon then be published in swedin (released).

  12. Zolloz,
    Thank you. I’m really pleased to hear that you enjoyed the books. Unfortunately I don’t have any idea when Dragon Moon will be out in Sweden, the publishers do not tell me! You should email the Swedish publisher and ask them.

  13. Congrats!
    can i see the UK version? i live in Hong kong, and they sell the UK version here, and i have the dragonkeeper (1st book) and i want to “have a whole set of the same” books, so can you please tell me when you have the UK version book cover!
    Thanks a lot and add oil(one of the sayings in Hong Kong which means keep up your great effort!!)

  14. Ryanne,
    Thanks. Never heard of that saying before!
    The second book in the series, Garden of the Purple Dragon, was published in UK on 2 Feb. So you should get that in Hong Kong in the next couple of months. Dragon Moon (the third and final book) will be at least another year, I would think.

  15. Ive made up plan im going to austrailia to get the third book so i wont have to wait as long for it to come out in the uk.

  16. Marv
    Sounds like an expensive plan. You could buy the Aust version on the internet (don’t tell the British publisher I said that!). Though that would also be expensive as books are much dearer in Aust than in UK and you’d have to pay for postage as well.
    I think you’ll just have to wait. There are plenty of great books out there for you to read in the mean time.
    Thanks for your enthusiasm.

  17. The artwork looks brilliant. I cannot wait for Dragon Moon to be pulished. I live in the UK so only this month got Garden of the Purple Dragon which is excellent. Do you know when the cover will be released because if I remember rightly, the cover for GOTPD was released quite a while before the book.

  18. Omg i cnt wait till the book comes owt. Its gonna b a race to my school liabry wen it comes out… aworsom cover:) keep up the gud work

  19. Hi Carole. When comes Dragon Moon to Germany? And what will be the title? “Drachenmond”? How will be the cover? I read at this time Garden of the purple Dragon (Im Garten des Purpurdrachen) it`s great. Thank you.

  20. i love your book although i’ve only read dragonkeeper
    im planning to buy garden of the purple dragon and dragon moon at the same time once dragon moon comes out in australia

  21. Ryan, Bronte, Tina, Josh,
    Glad you all like the cover and are looking forward to Dragon Moon. Hope it lives up to your expectations.

    Ryan, I think it will be quite a while before the UK cover for Dragon Moon is designed.

  22. Jonas,
    Hi, great to hear from you. I’m afraid I can’t answer any of your questions. You will have to ask the German publisher (Dressler). I am not involved with designing the German cover. You will probably see it before I do!

  23. hi there,

    iam reading Dragon Keeper right now, and its been the best book i have ever read in awhile. but i was wondering if there is a book after the Dragon Keeper. if there is i WILL be sure to buy it right away and read it as soon as i get it.

    PS. Danzi is awesome,

  24. Brandon,
    Thanks for the post. There are two more books in the Dragon Keeper series. I’m not sure where you live, but I’m guessing USA. If so the second book Garden of the Purple Dragon should be out there very soon. The third book (see cover on this post above) Dragon Moon, is due to be published in Australia in April, but probably not till next year at the earliest in USA.

  25. well, im in Canada. pretty close though.

    also, as iam typing this, i just finished the chapter where Ping gets captured by those villagers and gets thrown into the lake, then Danzi( he’s awesome ) saves her.

    2 more books!!!!? im gonna go out and search for them all day tommorow if i have to.

  26. Brandon,
    Hold on there, Brandon. I’m glad you’re so enthusiastic about getting the books but it doesn’t matter how much you search you won’t find Dragon Moon as it isn’t published anywhere in the world yet.
    I just had a look at the Hyperion website and Garden of PD isn’t listed yet so I don’t think you’ll find that in Canada just yet. Soon though I hope. Unfortunately there is no email address for enquires, just a phone number.
    The website is http://www.hyperionbooksforchildren.com

  27. oh my god!!!!

    i like read your books every day i wuv them so much there just so awesome i read them in class and i have read both dragonkeper and i finished the garden of the purple dragon today i just cant wait so long for the dragon moon book is there some way i can order it early 🙂 i live in AUSTRALIA so the books come preety quick but if there is a way please tell me via this site

  28. Jordon,
    As far as I know there’s no way of getting Dragon Moon earlier. The bookshops should receive it on 23 March. That’s only four weeks!

  29. ok thanks

    They will be missing out reading one really awesome book!

  32. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  33. Jordan,
    Sorry about the delay in replying. I’ve been working on a new book.
    I don’t have anything to do with the distribution of the books. And I don’t sell the books myself. (I’ve just written a new post about how authors don’t own the books, you might find it interesting.)
    Dragon Moon will be distributed to all bookshops on the same day. Different shops take different amounts of time to actually get them on the shelves.
    Thanks for your enthusiasm.

  34. Jack S,
    Yes I’m very happy with the cover and the layout inside the books. But I can’t take any credit for that, I’m afraid. I just write the words!

  35. Hey Carole. Love the cover! I live in Melbourne Australia (Like you) and can’t wait for it! Well done! 🙂

  36. Hey Carole.
    I was wondering, when will the next book in the dragon keeper sequel be out in the UK.
    I am getting really desperate and my birthday is on the 30th of april so i am hoping to get it in the bookshops in britain by then.
    From Gara Kite

  37. Heya Carole,
    the cover is FANTASTIC! very bright and colourful i think everyone would want to pick it up and read it 🙂

    i was wondering maybe you could give us some hints on whats gonna happen in the book

  38. Carole,
    I have recently stumbled upon your Dragonkeeper sequel and think you are an amazing writer because I just counldn’t put the book down. I have read them over and over again so it would be fresh in my mind when I read the Dragon Moon!!! It is a remarkable story and I would like to know when it will be released in Brisbane.

    Take care and enjoy life


    p.s. I love the way Danzi gives Ping and Kai riddles to solve. And I think that is an amazing cover for the Dragon Moon.

  39. Gara,
    Garden of the Purple Dragon is out now in Britain. A date hasn’t been set for Dragon Moon, but I imagine it will be about this time next year. There’s lots of great books out there for you to read in the mean time!

  40. Leisel,
    Ping and Kai follow the map that Danzi left for them. That’s all I’m going to say!

    Thanks for your kind words.There will be more puzzles for Ping and Kai to solve in Dragon Moon. The book will be out in Brisbane the same time as the rest of Aust, end of this month. See my post called Publication for Dragon Moon.

  41. i love the first 2 books and i cant wait 4 the next one. i live australia so its only about a month away. your writing is excellent and sooooo cool so im gonna do Garden of the PD for a book report.

    also i was just wondering how is ping in Dragon Moon and will they ever make movies of your books coz that would be really really really really really really really really cool!!!!!!!!!!

  42. P.S. in my last comment i wrote “how is ping” i meant to write how old is Ping

  43. Christina,
    Ping was 11 in Dragonkeeper. In Dragon Moon she’d be 14. Yes a movie would be good. But I have to find the right people to make it first. Someone with millions of dollars.

  44. Carole, just finished Dragonkeeper series. Fantasic. I read because I am a teacher librarian and need to keep ahead of the Kids. These books were a pleasure to read. I am glad you had the nerve to finish Ping’s story but oh so sorry it’s over. Thankyou

  45. Dianne,
    Teacher librarians are my favourite people! You do a terrific job of keeping up with all the books available for kids, I appreciate your hard work. Glad to hear you enjoyed the book.

  46. Hi,
    I need some info of Garden of the Purple Dragon. I’ve got an assignment, so would you please tell me? Thank you!
    I love the book.

  47. Hi Carole i’m aa 11 yr old girl and I love your books about Dragonkeeper, there just absolutely amazing!!! I just really want to read the third one Dragonmoon but the only thing is that my school libary doesnt have the book oh man:(

  48. Hi Carole. I just finished DragonMoon last night! I almost cried at the end. The last chapter was really sad. I really enjoyed the book.

  49. Laura,
    Thanks. I don’t know why your comment has only just come through. Sorry about that.
    Your librarian might get the book in if you ask him/her.
