Last month, I wrote about the makeover for the book originally published as Once Was Lost, and its new life as What We Lost. Now, I officially have the go-ahead to show you the cover. I must admit that I love it. It’s designed by the same person who did the original cover (and who has done all of my covers except for Story of a Girl) which I’m also quite fond of. I do think this one captures the human element of the story more successfully, and the sense of the summer heat and dryness, and Sam feeling alone in her crisis.
And the back of the cover! Oh the back of the cover, which I can’t show you here. It has images of all of my books on it and it makes me go, hey, I have a body of work! That’s all I ever wanted!
For now, here’s the front. I believe this will be in stores in spring, a bit ahead of The Lucy Variations or right around the same time. I’m going to have to wait on my site designer before I get all instances of the old cover and title replaced here, but I didn’t want to put off sharing this gorgeousness!
