Amazing readergirl Mitali Perkins shared her latest Cover Story for Secret Keeper, on my blog, and it was too good not to share with readergirlz! Here's Mitali:
"When it comes to art, I'm in the appreciator rather than the creator category. My publisher asked me for input, and I told her that there were a glut of covers set in India with girls peeking over veils or around sarees. I didn't want something that felt too 'ethnic.'
"When I saw this cover, I LOVED IT! I was so happy. I think it's a stock photo. Because I 100% loved it, I had no suggestions. I hope the art department enjoyed the rave email I sent to my editor.
"I am VERY pleased with this cover; I think it captures the feel of the story perfectly."
And sometimes, people, it's just that easy. Love at first cover. I think the cover model's downcast eyes (gorgeous lashes, btw!) are perfect for Mitali's story about a girl who keeps her heart in secret diaries. The colors and patterns are just indicative enough of its Indian setting.
What do you guys think?
