Recently this story caught fire internally at my publisher, St. Martin's Press. People within the company are reading and loving the story and after much thought and discussion, they decided to take a different approach to the cover art. A design that spoke more to the romance and small community aspects of the book, a cover that captured the feel of the story more accurately. Now don't get me wrong, I adored the original cover....
But I love, love, LOVE the new cover! Once you read this story (hoping that you do!), you'll see why this is the perfect art for FOOL FOR LOVE. Behold the amazing new art and my reason for happy dancing like loon!
Changing the cover so close to the release date is a REALLY big deal, rarely done. So that tells you how excited St Martin's is about FOOL FOR LOVE. They want to give this story the very best chance possible for grand success. In addition we're brainstorming some possible fun interactive social media events for The Cupcake Lovers. More details as I know them!
In the meantime... as it happens I had already ordered some cupcake recipe cards based on the original cover. They're really cool and feature Honorary Cupcake Lover, Gina Husta's recipe for Chloe's Carrot Cupcakes. Yum! I plan to start a whole collection of these recipe cards, but this launch card is now a 'collectible' of sorts because it also features the original cover!
If you would like one of these collectible cupcake postcards, please email me with your mailing address at: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can pre-order a copy of the book with the NEW cover in either print or e-book form at almost all cyber book sites, incuding Amazona dn Barnes and Noble!
Stay tuned for more exciting news! Until then, happy baking (or eating!) and peace, love, and joy!
