Update on the Cover of CONTROL


Hey guys!

I can't wait to show you the cover of CONTROL!

Wait, what?

What did you say?

My cover is already up on Goodreads and Amazon? Huh?

Are you talking about THIS?


Isn't it pretty? They are big, red blood cells. I LOVE the color and how it's unlike other YA novels out there.

But WAIT!

WAIT!


This is not my cover.

That's right. This one mysteriously leaked out. My new, final cover will be revealed in the upcoming weeks, but I've been getting Tweeted about this one. I've taken it down from Goodreads many times, and some well-meaning book blogger keeps putting it back up there, which is very sweet. And it's been showing up on book bloggers' Waiting on Wednesdays like this one, and this one. Ooh, and this one.

It even got Cover Snarked.

SO! Enjoy it while you can! It will disappear soon.

:)

Update: My real cover will be reveals on Young Adult Books Central on Monday, January 28th! I can't wait! I'll be giving away a signed ARC and some silver and onyx necklaces. Yay!

So Lydia, who designed and posted the cover? Personally, I like it a lot, but I'm sure your proper cover will be equally good, if not better.

Shelly said...

This one is really good, so your actual cover must be terrific. Can't wait to see it!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Weird that it keeps on being put up. Can't wait to see the real one.

Was this an early design that got rejected? Just wondering. It's kind of cool, but I look forward to seeing your real cover.

My cover was leaked on Amazon before I even saw it. Luckily, it was a happy surprise because I was thrilled.

Anne Gallagher said...

Well, this cover is very nice, but I can't wait to see the "real" one.

Slamdunk said...

This shows that all publicity is good publicity. I'll only trust your blog then for the real cover art, Dr.

Enjoy your Monday.

Clarissa Draper said...

Well, I really love the red blood cells. What a striking cover!

Oooh, I do like this one. But I can't wait to see what the final one will be! How exciting!

A Lady's Life said...

It does sound intriguing.
I think in the future this will be a norm to mutate genes.

Laura Diamond said...

wow, no kidding!

I like this cover, but am looking forward to the real one. ;)

Peggy Eddleman said...

Hahaha! I love how it keeps resurfacing! And I can't wait until you can reveal your real one. :) :) :)

This cover is gorgeous, but I'm sure the real one will be even better!! Can't wait to see it.

Southpaw said...

It's kind of interesting that it keeps resurfacing!

Lori M. Lee said...

I totally freaked out when I first saw it and thought I'd missed your cover reveal. But then I realized it was just a stand-in and breathed a sigh of relief :) I'm so excited to see the real cover!

Bethany Myers said...

Oh, you brilliant schemer! Love the red blood cells though. Can't wait to see the real thing!

Congrats!

LOL, well, this is a cool thing either way. It will be fun to see the real cover! I'm staying tuned. :)

Abby Minard said...

Omg, Lydia, that's hilarious it keeps going up! It's really cool looking though!

LTM said...

Lydia--LOL! Someone keeps putting up a FAKE cover for your book??? That's crazy! At least it's interesting, though... :P

Goodreads is so squirrely. And I can't wait to see your REAL cover~ xoxo *hugs*

LD Masterson said...

So where did this one come from? Any idea?

Ghenet Myrthil said...

Too funny! I'm excited to see the real cover. :)

Lydia Kang said...

To be clear, it was a possible cover (there were several) from Penguin that leaked before the final decision was made.

JEFritz said...

It's nice! I'm looking forward to seeing what the final is like. It must be super special.

Tammy Theriault said...

i love the cover! when i first saw it, it reminded me of the tv show "house". not sure why because this could be about something totally different. new follower, hi!!

Linda Gray said...

Well, NOW you've got my curiosity going. I can't wait to see the real cover! I did not know, until I read this, that there was a Cover Snarker out there.

Bathwater said...

I'm sure the final will be excellent. This one looks very good.

bethchristopher.com said...

How wacky that a false cover has been leaked. But what a pretty, pretty false cover it is! I too, had no idea what a Cover Snark was. Ah, the education that takes place, thanks to your blog.

Can't wait to see the real deal!

Kelly Polark said...

Actually that cover does look pretty cool. I'm excited to see your new one! How in the world does that get leaked like that? A mystery...

Jemi Fraser said...

That's bizarre! While I like this one, I can't wait to see the real one soon!!! :)

alexia said...

Can't wait to see the real cover!! I love cover reveals.

Christina said...

Ha, oops! I don't mind snarking non-final covers! It gets you double the exposure for your books. Your fake cover can wage a cover battle with the real one. :)
