Last week, I shared news that the cover for my March release, Believe it or Not, had been posted to Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Though I'd reviewed drafts of the cover before that, seeing it on those sites was my first time glimpsing the final version.
Or was it the final version?
There was a little confusion, and ultimately, my editor assured me it wasn't. The cover posted on those sites was the cover for the Advance Reading Copies (ARCs). The final version would be a little different.
And yesterday, I got to see the final final version.
Here's a look at the two versions side by side:
If you want to see detail, click the image to make it bigger. You'll definitely want to do that if you'd like to enter my contest to win a signed copy of the ARC.
Here's how it works: study the two covers and make a list of the differences you see between them. Leave a blog comment naming all the differences. To keep things fair, I've turned on comment moderation and won't post any of your entries to the site until the contest closes at 5 p.m. PST on Wednesday, December 21. That way, you can't see each other's entries until the end.
The person who finds the most differences between the two covers will win a signed ARC of Believe it or Not. In the event of a tie, I'll draw a name at random among the finalists.
OK, let the cover study commence!
