We’re about four weeks out from publication date and one of the aspects of this whole book process that people have found interesting is how we decided on the cover. I never would have imagined it to be a big deal, but it is! This cover art debate lasted eight months, and even though I claimed to be indifferent at first, I ended up feeling very passionate about what it should say and how it should look. We went through a LOT of iterations, and I saved all of them and put them into a grid, as you can see below. This is — from top to bottom — the sequence of how we arrived at the one you’ll see in bookstores on August 25. I’m SO GLAD we kept going until we found the right one, and I’m grateful to the Random House design team. You’ll notice the title and subtitle have changed as well… I think it was smart to go with just the one word in the end. The final really does, ahem, LEAP off the page, doesn’t it?!
