Guess what? The winter 2012 Penguin Young Readers Group catalog is online! Which means I can share something exciting:
Penguin chose my book cover for the cover of this catalogue! You can see it here.
Isn’t it pretty? I feel very honored, although I had nothing whatsoever to do with the shininess of the cover. I mean, I’m honored just to be included in this catalogue, because they’re publishing so many amazing books! (Special shout-out to my fellow winter 2012 Apocalypsie Penguin girls, Sara Etienne Wilson/HARBINGER and Lizzie Foley/REMARKABLE. I can’t wait to read both of their books! Perhaps, when there are ARCs, I will plead for them and then give them away to YOU, dear Readers.)
There’s also an excerpt from Chapter Two of BORN WICKED in the catalogue. If you’re curious, check out page 160!
ETA: The Cahill Witch Chronicles has sold in France! For new readers, this brings the total of foreign sales up to 7: French, Italian, Spanish, German, Hebrew, Brazil, and the UK. It gives me lots of joy to imagine having an entire row of them on my bookshelf someday with all sorts of different covers. Whee!
