Cover Stories: Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin

Ivy Devlin's Low Red Moon just shines on shelves. Partly because of the foil, and partly because of its gorgeous red and partly because of the amazing illustrations -- it comes together gorgeously.

Here's Ivy to share her side of the story:

"The original title of the book was red, so as I was writing the book, I figured that, if I was lucky enoug

"We did talk a little about the cover, mostly because the title of the book changed. Everyone wanted red from the start, though, which was fun!

"When I first saw the cover, I pinched myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming, because it's a total dream cover! The red is amazing looking, and it's done in foil, so it shines, and then the title is embossed..."

I got a signed copy of the advance version (more like a paperback) at BEA, and it's also gorgeous - in fact, I'm awarding at as a prize over at my blog!
