Hey There! It looks like my new chick lit novel, When Girlfriends Step Up (coming this Thursday!), had an appointment with the cover makeover doctor. I really liked the original version that my fabulous cover artist designed. This one here:
But, as it turns out…as with my cupcake cover for WGBH, you can really LOVE the face of a book. I got some feedback (thank you!) about the design, my husband said it needed something more (aka—the cover artist), and I figured it would probably be best if I absolutely loved the cover… So he went to work yesterday, played around with something new, and, let me say, I LOVE what he came up with!! This one makes me super duper happy. Here it is:
And when I look at it alongside the first book in the series…it has just the look I wanted! I loved the original baby binkie, but it was lacking that extra somethin’-somethin’ like the broken hearts, or the cupcake cake detail with the previous novel. I think adding the little pacifier dangling from the baby carriage is that extra sprinkle, and the cart detail is fab! That extra zing I wanted!
So, what do you think? Like? Love? Ready to read what’s behind the cover? :) I’m so excited to package up all prettily the entire book and put it up on Amazon This Thursday!!
Until then, you have a relaxing Sunday. I’m off to do some reading (finishing up King’s 11.22.63 and it is AWE-SOME!). Also going to whip up a Mexican fiesta for lunch/main meal (although using pitas in lieu of tortillas isn’t ideal…it’s all I can manage over here), and I’ll maybe even watch a documentary or something with the hubs.
