There are certain parts of being a writer that stink: the long waits, bad reviews, struggling to get a chapter just right. Then, there are the awesome moments: signing a contract, getting edits, seeing your book on shelves, good reviews.
One of the best moments for me has always been seeing a new book cover. That's what makes it all real. It's no longer just a story in your head or on a piece of paper. It's a book!
What makes that part even better is when I can finally share it with my friends, family, and readers. Which is all to say, "Look! Look! Look! Is that not the coolest cover ever??!!"
Whew, I feel better now. So what do you think?
Here's the cover blurb from the amazing James Dashner.
“With its mix of creepy chills and laugh-out-loud humor, Zombie Kid is the perfect book. Nick and his friends are my new favorite people.” – James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner
The artist is Doug Holgate. You can see more of his work here. He is the man! I don't know how he looked straight into my head. But he totally did.
