Not quite a cover reveal and exciting news

Night She Disappeared cover
SuppsedtoDieIsn't this freakin' - hm, gorgeous may not be the right word.  Freakin' freaky?  It's the cover comp for my June book, The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die.  They are doing a photo shoot for it.  Normally I wouldn't show a cover comp, but it's already up on Amazon, so I guess it's okay to.  

I just sold Chinese rights to this book. I have never sold Chinese rights before.  I have had books come out in Japanese, Spanish, Dutch, German, Polish, French, and Turkish.  And the UK, which is a foreign edition even if it's not a foreign language.  

I just got some queries from my UK editor for The Night She Disappeared. She asked could they change:

- bangs to fringe
- skim milk to skimmed milk
- fresh to afresh (as in, “And then I can start afresh.”)
- pants to trousers
- Life Flighted to airlifted

And added:
- As readers will not know what a Hobart is, can you suggest another word? Would cooker work? (Which is what we call an oven.)

Ooo, I like that cover.

What on earth is a Hobart?

It's a brand of meat slicer. Workers in restaurants who are lazy or feel they have better control sometimes push the meat through with their fingers and not the metal pusher, resulting in bad things. When a girl who works at a pizza parlor hears something bad had happened, her first thought is someone was injured by the Hobart.

Ah, okay. I had just never heard of it before, and I do lots in the kitchen.

It would have to be a commercial kitchen. These things are about as big a recliner.

I am so excited for The Girl Who Was Supposed To Die. I used it as my Waiting on Wednesday post today! I love a good mystery/thriller and this one sounds so awesome!
