Final Cover

Hello all! Confession: I have become an obsessive self-googler. Yes, it is so bad that at times I have resorted to self-googling even though I have a google alert set up (I was rewarded once for doing this which has only hurt my efforts to reduce said self-googling). But one thing that I've realized in this madness is that I haven't posted the most recent version of my cover!! Granted, there aren't HUGE differences between the first cover I posted and the most recent, but enough that I cringe just a little when I see the old one and feel remiss about not posting the new one :)

So, without further ado, the final (I hope) cover of The Forest of Hands and Teeth (which is scheduled to come out March 24, 2009, btw if I haven't mentioned already :).

Awesome! Must be an incredible feeling.

Thanks for sharing all your publishing stories, Carrie. It's quite an inspiration for those of us out here in the trenches.

I can't wait to read your book.

prince, it was an amazing feeling to get the cover -- so unexpected because for a while so many YA covers didn't have faces (and I don't describe my main character very much so I didn't expect a face on mine). But I LOVE the cover!!

So glad you like it b.e.!

Can't wait for it to come out! I love the cover--but what changed? I don't see it... Artistic nuances fascinate me.

Thanks y'all! So glad you like it! Brooke, they changed the background color a bit -- it looks less teal to me. And they also gave her a breast reduction - haha!
