Today's the day! I'm sharing the cover for my upcoming (3/11) release, ONE HUNDRED THIRTY STARS. Fellow MG writers Kristi Wientge and Stephanie Faris are featuring my cover as well! Be sure to drop by and say hi to them, if you can.
If you missed it a few weeks ago, here's the back cover summary:
Eleven-year-old Kelly “Birdie” Knotts has the perfect summer vacation planned: she’s finally going to visit her dad, Arthur. Birdie hardly knows him, but she has high hopes that he’ll be the one family member who understands her.
Too bad her vacation is nothing like she imagined it would be.
Arthur’s plans for their father-daughter visit revolve around a video game convention, where he dresses head-to-toe in costume and makes a boisterous scene every chance he gets. When he isn’t shouting gleefully in the hallways, he’s belting out off-pitch tunes in the karaoke room. Birdie’s new plan? Hide under a rock for life.
It’s impossible for Birdie to get to know Arthur when he insists that he’s a video game character. And if he doesn’t step up and start acting like a dad, it might be game over.
And here's the cover, with a special shout out to Steven Novak of Novak Illustration! I highly recommend him -- just look how great his work is:
What do you guys think? (You can click on the cover for a larger image.)
There's a star-gazing scene in the book that this cover represents, plus plenty of references to stars in video games.
Thanks for stopping by! I'm so thrilled to share this cover with you guys!
