COVER COUPLE


I love the cover of POND SCUM. Know what? I also love the cover of VIVE LA PARIS. Side by side don't they make a cute cover couple? Do you think the people at Hyperion know something that Esme and I don't? Could it be a subliminal introduction of cross-content books? Magic-realism meets fictional memoir....

Though our main characters are world's apart - it's fun to see they relate in a half-faced kind of way! Imagine how they'd look side-by-side on the bookshelf!

And though the world already knows it - a HUGE CONGRATS to Jay Asher (one third Disco Mermaid) on his first book deal. Read about it if you haven't. He's sharing his joy - and it's inspiring to read!

I was hoping to fix them up and then see if they actually have smiles - or if their faces just kind of drop off the map!

You have a blog and you didn't tell me?!

Welcome to the blogosphere. Keep an eye on those book jackets though. Door open, lights on, at least one foot on the floor at all times.

Okay, off to update the links ...
