So Unspoken will be out in forty-eight days, and you guys have not seen the UK cover yet! But now comes the time for me to SHOW IT TO YOU.
Whose fault is the delay, dear readers? Mine. I was a horrorshow about this cover. Thank you, Simon & Schuster UK, for bearing with me: they gave me a photoshoot (SO FANCY! I am so not deserving) so we could have a shot with a girl who looks like Kami with a boy who looks like Jared, they bore with me going ‘brighter! More! Different hair? What if we…’
They bore with EVERYTHING. We went through at least ten versions of this cover. And here it is, indisputably the most beautiful, for your viewing pleasure!
I hope you like it!
I am also in the midst of a Major Website Overhaul And Enbeautifying which is taking longer than I hoped (but is going to be so enbeautiful!) So here is where I am going to be in the next couple of weeks, JUST SO YOU ALL KNOW.

Tulsa event with Ally Carter and Jennifer Lynn Barnes

(I am already in Oklahoma, as it happens, and planning about spies and werewolves and skittles with Ally and Jen Lynn. We are all going to read from our unpublished books, and I am attempting to get Jen Lynn to read the passage I want her to from her new book NOBODY. The passage is where assassin meets girl. ;))
