This one's for my next book. It's what the cover of the ARE (Advanced Readers Edition, which seems to be the in-term now, instead of ARC, or Advanced Readers Copy). (Does anyone know why ARE is now in vogue?) The cover may change for the real book, which won't come out until March 2012. What do you think?
And here's what they are thinking of using for the cover of the paperback of Girl, Stolen, which also comes out in March 2012. While I love the hands over the face cover, Marketing had some concerns the book looked like a problem novel for girls (you know, Ami has an eating disorder or Amanda's dad is touching her at night). They wanted to project it was a thriller that would appeal to both sexes. Again, what do you think?
