Cover Reveal

Today was the cover reveal for my debut novel NOBODY BUT US! It's been a crazy and amazing day and I'm grateful to the many people which have helped over on Twitter and Instagram posting the trailer for the cover and made today so special. And it is already available on Amazon for pre-order! If you wanted to help you could add it as "to-read" on your Goodreads as it can help spread the word (thank you).

            • Laure,

              I have just pre orderd you book and can't wait to read it next year. My daughter has a degree in illustration and she like me thinks your cover is amazing. 

              Good luck to you. You deserve it 👏 💓

              • Congratulations. A really distinctive cover. Eye-catching as a thumbnail and full of detail viewed large.

                • My marketing manager and editor worked on the blurb together. Much tighter and punchier than what I used for my cover letter.This was my cover letter blurb: 


                  Ellie Masterson, a NYU Sophomore has only been dating Steven Harding, a well-respected Literature teacher at an exclusive Manhattan Prep for a few months, and she only has eyes for him. When they escape New York City for a three-day weekend in snowy Chesapeake Bay there is still so much they don’t know about each other.

                   

                  At their isolated destination, the sharp absence of civilisation unsettles Ellie; Steven is just delighted to have his new girlfriend all to himself. But their romantic getaway takes a dark turn after an innocent game derails and reveals hidden truths about Steven’s past. Trapped inside as a snowstorm rages on, Steven’s lies threaten more than just their time together and draw their relationship into a dangerous new territory — one where Ellie may be hiding dark secrets of her own.

                  • Their version is definitely punchier.

                    Though the pedant in me asks why, in the full version, the hook lines are separated by a full stop (the better option, I think), but in the promo graphic, they're separated by a comma.

                    • This is such a good blurb! I love seeing the difference between how we pitch ourselves and how our publishers end up pitching us.

I'm lucky to have an incredibly supportive agent and editor. Friday was crazy and now there are people out in the world reading my book which I kind of forgot would happened at some stage. But today I'm sitting at home proof reading 360 pages so I'm firmly back on earth! 😂

And if that blurb doesn't entice a reader to buy the book then nothing will. Great stuff. Congratulations. I'm so envious!! One question: why is there two different covers for the same book on Amazon?

                                                                                  0 0 0 0 0 0

My UK publisher only has rights for the UK & Commonwealth territories (exc. Canada), which means I have a different publisher for the US territories (inc. Canada). Publishers for different countries tend to have different covers to appeal to their local market. I hope that explains it!

Those are stickers my publisher made to use on envelopes to put the address on when sending the proofs to authors, reviewers and booksellers. It says “Are you ready to meet 2022 most f*cked up couple?”.

                                                                                                        You are correct, there is a flap on the front cover and the 2nd picture is what you see when you lift it. The last picture is the back cover where they’ve used a quote from the prologue.
