New Cover Reveal!

I have an awesome new cover to show you guys, and I will, but first:

Thanks to everyone for participating in Zombiepalooza. The winners from all the giveaways have picked and notified, so watch your email ;)

Hollowmen is back from the editor, but I'm still editing it. I'm hoping to publish it early next week.When I publish it, I'll post some more info about the book. Until then, Hollowland is free for the Kindle, if you haven't checked it out yet. The first un-edited chapter of Hollowmen is still up, if you want to check that out: here.

Now to the cover. As you may know, I have a new four-book series entitled Watersong with St. Martin's. The first book Wake will be out in 2012. The photographer for the cover is James Porto, my favorite photographer ever, and it really was a fantastic honor to work with him. His work is amazing. As is this cover. Don't believe me? Take a look:


I love it! I got to pick out the model, and the clothes she's wearing, which was fun. I think there will be also something extra with the cover when it comes out, but this cover is divine enough as it is.

  5. Great cover, Amanda.

    Now that I'm living in Portland, I'll be sure to upload a photo of your book on the shelf of the local Barnes and Noble, as soon as the first copy of SWITCHED appears locally.

    January sometime, right?

  8. I lovvveee the cover. Can't wait to hear more details about Wake. Thanks for the update on Hollowmen, it's a bummer that I didn't win a copy of Hollowland but I guess that's ok seeing as I already have it on my Nook.

  24. Yay! I hope this is your book about mermaids! You've mentioned that you wanted to write about mermaids before. I LOVE your writing and I love the idea of mermaids so I'm crossing my fingers that that's what this is about. Either way the cover is awesome.

  28. I'm not exactly sure the name of the model. My editor sent me the profiles of a bunch of models to choose from, and I picked hers. I think her first name might be Heidi. But it was awhile ago, and I don't remember. :S

  29. Yeah, the photograph is great! And Lisa Pompilio did a great job designing and art directing the shoot

  30. You've got a great designer working on your covers!

  31. It's great that you had that control. Most authors, they tell me, don't have ant control over covers. Is it just being contract savvy?

    BTW, great cover. She is challenging the viewer to read and find out why she is there!<a href="http://fangswandsandfairydust.blogspot.com” rel=”nofollow”> Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust</a>
