New Book Cover


Want to know what I did this weekend?  I'll tell you, and I'll do it excitedly because I'm super duper exthited!!!!

I got a new book cover.  Now, I loved my old one because of the sentimental value it held for me, and guess what?  I'm keeping it for the print.  I'm a rebel and I cant help it.  But after being contacted by three different, successful indie authors telling me they loved my book but that they thought I needed a picture picture I decided to not look a gift horse in the mouth (whatever that means) and spent three days on Shutterstook looking for Lucy, the main characters face. 

I FOUND HER.  She was sitting there, minding her business but when I saw her she screamed at me and said "Hey, dummy, I'm right here.  Come and get me!" 

So I got her and I texted my editor image after image  after image  after image after image after image after image after image after image after image after image after image after image after image after image after image after image....

And after three agonizing days of sweat, tears, laughter, tears and tears we came up with this.

 
 
Squeeeeeeeeeeeee.  I love it!!! 
 
What do you think?

That is a really well done cover. Seriously, it will take your book places. Good to meet a fellow YA author. :)

Hmm...I love it! Even though I'm a huge fan of the other cover. Covers are a hard guess...hard to tell what appeals to everyone. Best luck with this one.
