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:
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.
When does the paperback come out? I have to have this for my collection!
Agreed! When is it out?!
This is the best birthday gift ever because it’s coming out on my birthday, May 1!
Aw amazing! (:
lol , true true
Aww super cute! I love the girls dress with the rain boots! This is probably one of the cutest book covers ever!!!
Girl, I feel you on those rain boots. WANT.
IKR!!! i feel so honored that you replied to me! 🙂
this is such a great cover!!!
I love it! It’s probably my favorite one yet. So modern and cute. 🙂
Can’t wait for the book!!
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?
P.S. Will this paperback edition of So Much Closer include bonus material?
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 🙂
This is by far the most awesomest cover EVAA!!!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
❤ ❤ ❤
Umm, can I have that girl’s pretty hair and green dress? 😉
They did an excellent job!
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.
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!
Not the whole scene, but their hands is what reminded me of it. I LOVED that simple gesture 🙂 Just to clarify haha.
I love the way their hands are touching here. And this cover really does relate to the last scene. This photo shoot took place in Hudson River Park, right where they were walking in the book!
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+++
Woot! At first I wanted to see a bit sharper background. But I get that the first cover was too urban so they obvs couldn’t show these buildings. And now I think it looks gorgeous 🙂
