so much shiny new

Exciting news! So Much Closer is getting a shiny new paperback cover!

Word on the street is that the original cover was too…street. Yes, the book takes place in New York City. And yes, the cover photo shoot took place on the High Line. Which is why it was my dream cover. But city scapes apparently aren’t best for covers. So the uber talented paperback team did a whole new photo shoot and created this super cute cover:

So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti

What do you think? I think I’m in love.

You’re probably wondering where this photo shoot took place. Right here in New York City! This was at Hudson River Park (where some serious iPod dancing went down in Take Me There). Then they just blurred the background to avoid being too urban again. What’s awesome is that both the original cover photo and this shiny new one were taken right here in my neighborhood, where the book takes place. I can’t tell you how amazing it is to have my story come to life this way. Showing actual locations from the book right on the cover is an author’s dream come true.

I hope you love this cover as much as I do. Not only is it gorgeous, it reminds us of something we should never forget. Follow your heart…no matter where it takes you.

  1. Cute cover, although as someone who grew up and still lives in a city, I personally like “urban” covers. To each her own, I suppose.

    Guess what? I’m going to see Death Cab in concert next month. I’ve never seen them live before, so I’m especially excited. I remember your blogging about going to their show a while ago. Have you seen them many times in concert?

      • Death Cab! I’m so excited for you! I’ve actually only seen them once in concert so far, but it was beyond memorable. I will never forget that experience.

        Yes, this paperback edition will totally have bonus material! Same with Keep Holding On. I told my editors I wanted to start including bonus material and they said yes 🙂

    • Okay, but I get her boots. My Rocket Dog turquoise and orange rain boots with purple lining ripped a few months ago. I’ve been devastated (and have not found rain boots I like nearly as much) ever since.

  2. This cover is absolutely amazing! I love the book, and the original cover was great as well, but this is just incredible. It’s so cute I can’t even stand it! And the models immediately remind me of the last scene, between Brooke and John, it’s perfect ❤ I can't wait to get this one too!

  3. This is such a cute cover!! It’s honestly the best one yet ❤ i love everything about it ❤ Especially how everything is out of focus in the background, making you concentrate on the people instead :))) A+++
