REVEALING THE BOOK COVER PROCESS BETWEEN AUTHOR AND PUBLISHER
When I first got my book deal with Macmillan Children’s Books (MCB), my agent told me they were going to give the book an iconic cover. And boy, didn’t they just?
The amazing illustrator, Helen Crawford-White did a fabulous job as did the entire art department at MCB.
But the final version was the result of a rigorous and fairly lengthy process and began as a pooling of ideas between myself the author and my MCB Editor, Rachel Kellehar.
You can read about the detailed process in my post on the excellent Queen of Contemporary’s YA blog here:
Smart is now available in hardback/eReader format from all good bookshops, including Waterstones, Foyles and Amazon.
