Teaser Tuesday

THE HEALING SPELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's GORGEOUS! I'm thrilled and LOVE it - AND I CAN'T SHARE. Publisher's orders. They said NO showing off fabulous, wonderful, beautiful cover until we deem that it's time to flood the world and start officially buzzing!

How's that for a teaser? I will tell you that they took one of my suggestions to add a particular something to the cover - and they all agree it really makes it *pop*. Happiness!

Sorry, my friends! But I promise it will be worth the wait. I guess I can see Scholastic's point - after all, the pub date is still 10 months away. EXACTLY 10 months from today - yippeee!

But I CAN share the artist who did the cover art. His name is Marc Tauss. Check out his other book jacket covers. (First link on the left on the Home Page). Then open up the thumbnails, they're even prettier full blown. And I am in awesome writerly company! He's done jacket art for K.L. Going, Joan Bauer, Laurie Halse Anderson, Ann Rinaldi, Tracy Mack, Bruce Colville, Ann Turner, etc.

Here's the one-liner teaser we're thinking of putting on the back cover - and it PERFECTLY fits my status today.

Thanks, Barbara and Christine - I'm DYING to show it off, but I'll try to be a good girl and wait. ;-D
