BEASTY NEW YEAR!
Looky what arrived on my virtual desktop this week!
In the publishing biz, they call this a cover flat — the dust jacket of a hardcover book spread out flat. Pretty cool, huh?
My intrepid editor, Kaylan Adair, at Candlewick Pres, sent this out to me ASAP, the cover flat for Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge, to get my Happy New Year off to a boffo start. It worked!
I'm very jazzed about the Gothic elegance of this artwork — dark and lovely — and how it suits the mood of my story. And I could NOT be more thrilled about how the gorgeousness of this concept extends beyond the front cover all the way to the spine and the flaps!
Pub date is July 10. Stay tuned!
(PS: And yes, the one typo I found in the jacket text will be corrected in the printed version. Can you spot it?)
