Oh. My. Gosh. You guys don't know how long I've been waiting to show you this!! Okay, a month. That's how long. A month of having it as my screen background, and staring googly eyed at it, and swooning over it.
Now, if you're still reading and haven't just scrolled down, a little background. I was always sure I was going to get a good cover, because HarperTeen rocks in the cover department. But since my book is funny and Evie is a very perky narrator, I had this nagging worry that my cover would come out...hot pink and sparkly. Which really just doesn't sum up what the book is very well at all, because while it *is* funny and it *is* cute, it's also dark and scary and intriguing, (I say, VERY HUMBLY).
So when I found out what direction they were taking it in, and what photographer they were using, and who my design team was...well, I didn't worry anymore.
And what they came up with? LOVE LOVE LOVE SWOON SWOON SWOON.
Are you ready?
Okay, I give you: PARANORMALCY!
This is me, incoherent with happiness!!
You guys, I love it so, so much. I love the dark and foreboding background. I love Evie--this is pretty close to how I pictured her! I love her hair, and I love her dress, and I love that SHE would love her hair and her dress. And I love the font. And I love MY NAME ON IT.
Oh my gosh. I need to go sit down...
Anyway. There it is! I hope you love it as much as I do. Keep in mind that this cover image is NOT final--there are always tweaks and adjustments--but I could not be more thrilled with it. I am a very, VERY happy author right now!!
