GOLDEN Has a Cover!!!

I've been waiting a LONG, LONG time for this.  I got the okay to share the cover for GOLDEN, (which will be out in May of next year), a while ago, but I've held onto it because it didn't feel quite right to share it until I finished my revisions--at least the first round, anyway.

I am SO happy to say that I've got that first round under my belt and am finally starting to get that  nervous-excited-almost-there feeling that comes along with the realization that soon enough, the story I've worked on and fretted over for so long will indeed make it to be a real book, on the shelves in a real book store. 

And....thanks to Lizzy Bromley and the design team at Simon & Schuster, it'll look like this!!!


I have loved each of my covers, but this one may be my most favorite yet.  From the light, to the sketches, to the Robert Frost tagline, I couldn't be any happier.  I think it fits the story just perfectly!  
GOLDEN is part love story, part mystery, and all about taking chances and making choices.  Here is the super official flap copy:
Seventeen -year-old Parker Frost may be a distant relative of Robert Frost, but she has never taken the road less traveled.  Valedictorian and quintessential good girl, she's about to graduate high school without ever having kissed her crush or broken the rules.  So when fate drops a mystery in her lap--one that might be the key to uncovering the truth behind a town tragedy, she decides to take a chance.
So it's out there now!  And official!  Which means I should get back to revising...
Hope you guys like this one as much as I do!
