Choosing Cover Art for My New Novel

My next novel THE ART OF FLOATING is due out from Berkley Books/Penguin in exactly one year, and right now, YES AS I TYPE, brilliant Penguin-y artists are putting together the cover art ideas. I love, love, love this process. Sure, it’s a little scary to put the visual aspect of my novel into the hands of someone I never met (because as we well know, many of us are first drawn to books by their covers so it’s super-ultra-uber importante), but it’s also pretty cool.

My editor at Berkley was awesome enough to ask for my ideas. I sent her some thoughts, but also started putting together this Pinterest page of book covers that strike me for one reason or another. Check it out!
