I'm so excited that I'm having a really hard time not typing this in all caps. Seriously, I can hardly contain myself. I'm as giddy as any of the 6th graders I teach. My editor just emailed me the book cover and I love it.
Seriously, I love this cover. It's my first one, after all, and that's exciting. But I really like it, on its own merits. It's like having a really pretty baby. You'll love it no matter what, but the fact that it's beautiful is really cool.
(By the way, in case your computer's graphics are not that great, Stephanie is holding a microphone, not a dagger).
The text that's superimposed over the pictures are the lyrics to the song that one of the characters writes for the fictional road show, but that I really wrote, and my friend Sherrie is setting to music and recording. That's another really exciting thing.
I'm not an artist, so I didn't really have any ideas for the cover, or a vision of what it should look like--but this is IT! Thanks to Angela Olsen, the designer, who is quite clearly a genius.
Here's the back cover, which I also really like. I made it a little bigger so you can read the words.
Now you all know you can buy this, right? It's only $7.41 on Amazon. For crying out loud, the cover alone is worth $7.41. If you buy it and just frame the book jacket, you have a major deal on your hands.
