Crescendo Cover...Makes Me Think

The cover for Becca Fitzpatrick's sequal to hush, hush was revealed April 10, 2010. You can go here to see a chalk drawing (like-someone is ACTUALLY drawing it!) of the cover. Crescendo picks up where hush, hush left off and the cover does just the same. The mysterious and dark cover will help to pull readers in...this got me thinking, though. What would the cover for my POS look like? Would it just be my main character, Blue Hudson, standing next to van to illustrate the significance of the road trip? Or could it be Blue, with a faded picture of Charles Manson in the background, staring down at him with a cross stitched into his forehead? Have you envisioned the cover for your book, yet? If so, what does it look like?

Also, go here and here to see my discussion (and my cuz's) from a YA Highway question back in January on other good book covers.


  1. Great question, and one that I have been thinking about considerably for WHEN my novel finally gets published. :) I envision it as the interlocking of fingers, since the title is WANTS and it's all about relationships. I think that would be both subtle and direct enough. I don't know, maybe I'm just cheesy.

  2. Oooh! I love that- I can see it :) I think that works perfect for your novel.
