Vintage Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Posted on | August 9, 2013 | 30 Comments

I am beyond excited to share with you the cover for my debut novel, VINTAGE, which will be released on March 25, 2014, and is available for pre-order now at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, IndieBound, or your favorite bookstore.


Vintage Cover

When my publisher, William Morrow/HarperCollins, first shared the cover with me, I couldn’t believe that it looked almost exactly like the cover image I’d had in my head. I had always pictured VINTAGE with a shop window on its cover, since the story centers on a Midwestern vintage clothing shop and a group of women who eventually transform the store and each others’ lives. And now, I am so very thrilled to share the cover with you and, next spring, to share the story with you as well!

To celebrate, I’m holding a giveaway for a $50 Amazon gift card, which I hope the winner will spend on books, but of course can be spent on anything. Scroll down to sign up using the form, and earn extra entries by spreading the word in any of the ways below. I’ll use Rafflecopter to choose one lucky winner next week and notify the winner here on the blog. All email addresses and other personal information will be kept private. The contest ends at 12:00 CST on Friday, August 16, but you can tweet about the contest once a day until then to earn extra entries. Thanks for helping me celebrate!

    Seriously, the cover is gorgeous. And I don’t care what they say, we judge by covers and this one would make me grab the book and read the front flap. ^_^ Congratulations!!!

    This cover (and the book) most definitely appeals to my flea market, second-hand, “never seen a yard sale that I haven’t looked over” kind of sensibility. I’d love to read a book about a vintage shop!

    Ha! I’ve never met a yard sale I didn’t at least slow down for.

    I like the cover but I would at first glance think it was an academic book on vintage clothing.

    Cover is great! Simple, yet intriguing. I would definitely pick this up off the shelf of my local book shop to read the inside jacket cover.

    I love the concept and colors. What about adding a vintage hat on top of the manikin? Something small and sophisticated perhaps in red?
