Hyperion has done me a huge service by making MARY’s packaging so very beautiful (if creepy stuff can be beautiful?)
The first picture is the dust jacket versus the “naked” book:
The second is the back. Here’s the beauty there–my editor says to me, “Did you see the bug on the back of the book?” I thought she meant error, but no. She meant actual bug. I stripped the jacket off and lo, there is an insect scuttling across my book. Subtle and very cool.
Did you see it?
Less than a month until release. I’m TOTALLY ready for this.
(I’m TOTALLY lying.)
