The paperback cover for MATCHED is now online and it is lovely:
I wondered what the awesome Penguin designers would do with the paperback cover because the original is so beautiful. But, as always, they are amazing–they managed to do something that keeps the wonderful feel of the hardcover but also feels fresh with the additional green. It’s just lovely. The paperback will be released on September 20, 2011–just a little over a month before CROSSED comes out!
The Utah Festival of Books this weekend was fantastic. A HUGE thank-you to all of you who came out and waited in line. Trust me, I have had years of signings with no line and one or two people total coming through, so this made my day! And I even had my first (to my knowledge) fan-made MATCHED t-shirts! If you cute gals are reading this post, will you e-mail me a picture? I forgot my camera (as always!) and would love to post a pic with you in it.
Wednesday is the last day to sign up for the Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers Conference. I’ve been to this conference the last two years and this year I get to give the keynote address. It’s such a wonderful conference. Please come!
Tomorrow I’ll be back with a summer update and a giveaway. See you soon!
