Cover Reveal for KING! The final book in the Prophecy Series!!

When it comes to book covers and editors, I do feel like I'm the luckiest girl in the world. I've known the concept art for the final book for a while now and it has been incredibly hard for me not to want to brag about it.

I have 3 books and each cover has been even more beautiful than the last. I don't quite know how the art team at HarperTeen does this. Their talent is truly extraordinary. From color choice to background details to placement of art. I am truly blown away by my cover.

It is the perfect cover to the final book of the series.

The crowning glory.

The King of the trilogy.

Okay, I'll shut up and reveal it now... drumroll please...


TA DA!!!

BookCon recap!

So much good stuff has happened! How do I relate it all? I think the best way is to share links with you.

Here's a PW wrap up on the panel.

Here's a little NPR interview our team did.

Here's a pretty thorough reporting on the panel by the wonderful Lynn Miller Lachmann.

And if you want to actually listen to the entire panel, here's an audio podcast for your listening pleasure!

Also, why is it that everytime someone takes a photo of me, I'm making a weird face and hand gesture?
That last one looked like I was going to start a song and dance number soon.

But in any case, I can tell you that the event was an amazing success! Just take a look at the crowd we had!

I like this picture a lot because that's my fabulous agent, Barry Goldblatt sitting in the very front! Do you know that he is a true supporter of diversity? He created the  The Angela Johnson Scholarship, a talent-based grant for writers of color attending the MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults Master of Fine Arts program. The $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to up to two students annually. You can find more information about it here.

The audience at our panel was simply amazing. We were so crowded that when we started people were sitting on the floors, standing against all the walls and more people who wanted to come in were turned away. The crowd was incredibly enthusiastic and so very supportive and we had the best time. And now there's still far too much to do but I shall leave you with my new favorite thing.

This is a Chibi version of me! By the incredibly talented Sharean Morishita who I am a huge fan of! Her art is so awesome and she is working on creating a fantastic, diverse comic which I cannot wait to get my hands on when she is done!!

And that's the recap!!
