Do you notice anything different around here?
No, I haven't lost weight. But thank you.
It's my blog! After the big Cover Reveal last Friday, I received a lot of suggestions that I should dress to match my book:
Since there's no way I could rock that dress, or even squeeze into that dress, I decided to dress up my blog to match. What do you think?
Also, I have to give a big shout out to the world wide web for all of their support over the cover. And let me tell you, that cover took a lot of work. First, I had to find the girl. Then, I had to shop at JC Penny for the dress. Then - this was the hardest part - I had to search the world for some smoke/cloud/fog action...
Okay, I had nothing to do with the cover. Huge thanks for the cover team at HarperCollins. Did you know there are graphic design guys that specialize in smoke?
Anyway, since I've sort of been cover-obsessed this past week, I'd love to share with you some of my favorite covers of recent and upcoming books:
First up, IMAGINARY GIRLS by Nova Ren Suma:
|I think Nova should totally dress to match.|
It's so darn lovely. And mysterious.
Next up, and keeping with the water theme, THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER by Michelle Hodkin.
|Some guys are hot enough that you wouldn't mind being pulled under with them.|
Seriously, I don't know what it is about underwater shots, but they are so awesome!
And, now, we have an upcoming book, INCARNATE by Jodi Meadows:
|Um... you have something on your face... near your eyes...|
I think this cover is so different than anything I've seen lately! I love the colors, and I have to know why her eyes have wings!!
And, in keeping with the "winged creatures on the face" theme, here is another one I love, LUMINOUS, by Dawn Metcalf:
|It says something good about a person when butterflies love her.|
Oh, man. So so pretty!
This is why I love hardcover books so much. They are works of art! So, what are some covers you love?
Also, a reminder that if you'd like a chance to win an arc of EVERNEATH, stop by CranberryFries and Windy's blogs. All you have to do is assemble the right phrase to tweet. It's sort of like a treasure hunt, and who doesn't love a treasure hunt?
