I can finally share the utterly jaw-dropping AWESOMENESS that is the cover art for WONDROUS STRANGE.
So... Picture = 1,000 words? I dunno... 1,000 seems like a REALLY LOW number to me, in this instance.
It's funny... I barely even know what to write about this. It's the thing that, in the back of their minds, every author at one time or another daydreams about. "My book cover". And then - one day - WHAMMO!!! this image shows up in you email inbox. And suddenly your face hurts because it's really not technically engineered to smile that big.
And that goes on for days. And the face-pain is so TOTALLY worth it!
And then you get a package in the mail and it contains galleys and the actual real-life book jackets that will one day soon wrap your wee story in a loving embrace and you can't stop petting them like puppies because the actual title of the book is EMBOSSED and SHINY and the cover is the gorgeous velvety matte paper and the colours are SO vivid and this gorgeous young red-head who is SO your main character stares out at you in MOST beguiling fashion...
Remember a few posts back when I was all giddy about my chapter-heading swoosh? Yeah... well... "giddy" doesn't even begin to describe the feelings I have about my cover, or the fine fine fine human beings that came together to create it. I may have to invent a new word.
In the meantime, I'm just gonna... stare at it. A lot. Feel free to do the same.
