I Have a Book Cover!

I’m interrupting regularly scheduled blog programming because I have something I can’t wait to show you.

MWF Seeking BFF has a cover! Ever since this book journey started, I’ve always said that it won’t feel real until there’s a cover. Something tangible to prove that one day, in 2012, this little paperback will actually be in bookstores. Well, the time has come.

I have to say—and I can say this because I had so little (read: zero) involvement in its design (and also because, you know, we’re friends)—I love it. I’ve heard plenty of horror stories of authors hating their covers, but instead I want to make the designer my best friend forever, conveniently.

As you can see (or maybe you can’t, if you’re reading this in a feed reader) I’ve updated the header of this blog to match. I’ve also updated the About the Book page so it’s even easier for you to pre-order the book, if you’re so inclined. I’m still navigating the whole book business, but I’ve learned that all pre-order sales count towards first week sales, and first week sales are the most important. So, if you are planning to buy it anyway (and I so hope you are!), won’t you consider pre-ordering? (Kindle readers: The links here are for the physical books, but if you click on the Amazon link, the Kindle version is there too.)

If you’re still not sure you want to read MWF Seeking BFF, might I direct you to the bottom of this page where you can read some advance praise? Perhaps the likes of Gretchen Rubin and Sheila Weller can convince you.

Either way, thank you, thank you, thank you, as always, for reading this blog and not thinking I’m a crazy loon with my tales of awkward hugs and rented friends. I am so grateful.

    The cover is SO perfect and so perfectly Rachel! Could not be more excited to read it or more proud of you for being a published author- how amazing!

  9. The first thing I noticed when your blog loaded this morning was the change in the header…and it all made perfect sense after I read this entry! Congrats!! I love the cover and think it’s fantastic…can’t wait to read the book 🙂

  10. Wow, very exciting! It’s a great cover, and it’d totally make me want to buy the book. If I didn’t want to read it already, of course.

    I wouldn’t say I’ve heard horror stories about bad book covers, but I’ve seen the SATC episode where Carrie totally hates her book cover. So that counts, right?

    • Thanks Anne! And yes, Carrie totally counts. I’ve heard plenty of authors say they hated their book cover and the publishers just put their foot down (they are the experts after all). Luckily, I swooned when I saw mine.

  11. Congratulations Rachel – the cover is so fabulous and I’m so happy for you!
