Paperback Makeover!

The paperback of DLS is coming out in March and I just got permission to reveal the new cover:




It sounds ridiculous, but I particularly love the back - there are blurbs from Geralin Thomas, one of the organizers of the show Hoarders on A&E and another from Courtney Summers, an author I greatly admire and whose review of DLS I hold close to my heart.

Look for it in bookstores soon!

On this date: In 1908, the Grand Canyon National Monument is created.

They did a nice job. The cover definitely gets the message across.

I prefer the hardcover myself, but a blurb from Courtney Summers?! Amazing.

Sheila said...

I'm looking to forward to reading it. I haven't read this one but I love the cover.

Dirty Little Secrets is a great book. I think I like the PB cover even more than the hardcover!

Thanks for the feedback! The hardcover gets cemented in your mind as THE image for the book, so the switch does take some getting used to. Glad most of you like it!

Um, can't help but notice a lot of books in that cover (my own hoarding problem!) I haven't read this yet, but I've wanted to and the blurb from Courtney Summers surely seals the deal. :)

Courtney Summers is amazing, and so are DLJ and Cyn. :-) A great combination. Congratulations!

That's really cool, Cyn - but I'm wondering why change the cover at all? I know they don't do that all the time. Are they hoping to appeal to a different audience with this one?

Apparently they change the cover to appeal to a broader audience in the paperback version. It's less expensive, so there might be more impulse buying.
