So I’m down in Florida for a week of writing and while I was in the insane clog of crowded madness that was the JetBlue gate at LaGuardia Airport, I needed to find wifi so I could share some NEWS about my cover!
First, rewind back to September of last year and this was what The Walls Around Us looked like when I was writing it:
If you want to see what The Walls Around Us looks like now—it’s looks really damn good, that’s not a spoiler—you will soon be able to see the cover. Tumblr (!!!) is revealing it one week from today, on August 4, on books.tumblr.com…
This is the first time Tumblr is doing a cover reveal, and on a personal note this is the first time one of my books has ever even *had* a cover reveal, and I’m really excited about that. There will be teaser excerpts from the manuscript revealed this week, too… Please keep an eye out and celebrate with me. I often feel like a very small person in a very large and crowded room (much like that JetBlue gate at LaGuardia airport), and this feels surreal and very thrilling and thank you for listening!
Here is what Tumblr said about the cover reveal today (plus, thrown in, an “Orange Is the New Black Swan” reference!)…
I can’t wait to show you on August 4.
Now… to the writing cave to write mad words all week and have something to show for myself.
