Shadow Hills has a cover! A cover!

I've gotten the official go-ahead to post the Shadow Hills cover. So I'm unlocking this entry now. Which makes me a little nervous----in a good way.

I think it's finally hitting me that I sold my book. And now people will get to read it. Some people might actually pay money to read it. Crazy.

So exciting! Congrats, Anastasia!!!

It's coming up blank for me though. Anyone else having that happen?

That's very weird. But it is a big file. I'll try resizing it and posting that.

Thanks! Intriguing is one of the highest compliments a book cover can get. If it makes them pull it off the shelf, that's awesome!

That's a really gorgeous cover. Also, can I just say you have a fantastic authorly name? I'm jealous. :P

Thanks, it's nice that my name is an asset now. When I was in grade school it was just a pain. Little kids trying to say Anastasia? Not good.

Very cool, Anastasia! Love the flame and the script! Excellent tag line too.

Thanks! I love the script too. It's pretty, but it also has a spooky feel. Which is what I'm hoping people will think of the novel itself. ;)

Thanks! I love your cover too. It gives me this great creeped out feeling. (I kind of like being creeped out.)

That's so sweet! Chelsea mentioned that she thought it looked like blown glass. I didn't notice it before, but since she said it, that's what I always think.

I think it goes well with the mood of the book. Like your font does with your book!

Very mysterious looking... invites you in. Lovely contrast between the black and orange!

Thanks! I love that *pop* between the colors.

God, I can't wait for this book! But you know that. ;) Love the sexy cover full of mystique, love the byline (again, sexy and full of mystique), and I love your synopsis of it. (P.S. I talked to a certain editor type person **coughcough-Jimmy Olsen-coughcough** & I think we will both be reading it sometime next month, but def. before Thanksgiving.)

Woohoo! I can't wait!

Oooo! Yes, definitely intriguing. Makes me want to pick it up and read the back cover copy.

That's why I love it!

Dear Anastasia,
The smoke/glass image is seductive and scary both, and I like how the font echoes it. Congrats!
All best,
Caragh

Ohhh, I like your description of it being like smoke... I may have to steal that.

Love it, love it Anastasia! Really it is so eye-catching and that orange is perfect!

Congrats!

Thanks! I'm hoping it will match my hair. Now, that's what I call color coordination. ;)

Trust me, it would have been much harder for me to keep it to myself. Plus, I'm loving all the wonderful support. I'm so glad the 10'ers gang has got my back. (Though I don't think we would emerge triumphant from a knife fight.)

Beautiful and intriguing! I love it!
(Also, and this is going to sound lame, it matches your hair!)

=D

That's not lame at all! In fact, it's kind of awesome.

I'm hoping that when you read it, you will find the answer to your question is: 'Much awesomeness!'
