The Great Cover Artist Search of 2012 has come to a conclusion, and I have found my cover artist! Renee Barratt, owner of The Cover Counts, will be designing the cover for Small Things. Renee is super-affordable (leaving me more money to buy stock and advertising,) has designed some really sharp covers, and comes highly recommended by best-selling author Connie Suttle.

Thanks to everyone I spoke to about designing my cover, especially Tim Baron and Lynne Hansen. Both are insanely talented and would make a great cover for just about any book.

I do think choosing the right cover is important, a cover that manages to convey something about the book while at the same time being eye-catching. I know I’ve chosen books solely based on the cover, and sometimes I’ve even liked the book itself. I can’t wait to see what Renee comes up with!

From Joe's writing

The girl was still there. She backed up from Ben and watched in amazement as the teenager faded from view. The other figures in the photo adjusted themselves to make up for the empty space. Katy thought she was going to be sick.
