And the winning cover for MEG AND LINUS is...
My book has a cover!
Holy crickets, my fellow Swooners, I just … need a moment. I can't stop staring at it. It's a cover! For my book! How is this real?
It was so exciting to see the votes come in over the week and read everyone's comments, and now we have a winner! Thank you so much to everyone who voted – I know the choice was very difficult with all these amazing options.
Honestly, I would have been happy with any of the covers. But I can't deny that I did a little happy dance when I got the result – it's absolutely perfect! I mean, look at it!
ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL? This is everything I wanted! Holy smokes, it's all starting to feel real. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to seeing the actual finished book. I want to hug this cover!
It's so fitting for Meg and Linus because they're both such huge Star Trek fans, and this feels like the perfect hint to that. All of the covers did such great jobs expressing different aspects of the book, but as a life-long sci-fi nerd I'm thrilled that, out of everything, the Starry Black Cover won for my very first book! I couldn't have planned it any better if I had … you know. Planned it. :)
I'm saving all of the other files as well, that's for sure! I loved every single one of them! My biggest thanks to Liz D. for putting together five such incredible options! I can almost see Meg and Linus arguing it out between themselves which one fits them best...
But I'm pretty sure they'd come to the same conclusion all of you guys did. And they'd be as happy about it as I am. Because, I don't know if you can tell, I am VERY excited about this! I mean, look at the cover! Look at it! I think it's time for another little happy dance.
