So I’m down in Florida for a week of writing and while I was in the insane clog of crowded madness that was the JetBlue gate at LaGuardia Airport, I needed to find wifi so I could share some NEWS about my cover! If you want to see what THE WALLS AROUND US looks like now—it’s looks really damn good, that’s not a spoiler—you will soon be able to see the cover. Tumblr (!!!) is revealing it one week from today, on Monday, August 4, on books.tumblr.com… This is the first time Tumblr is doing a cover reveal, and on a personal note this is the first time one of my books has ever even *had* a cover reveal. There will be teaser excerpts from the manuscript revealed this week, too… Please keep an eye out and celebrate with me. I often feel like a very small person in a very large and crowded room (much like that JetBlue gate at LaGuardia airport), and this feels surreal and very thrilling and thank you for listening!
Here is what Tumblr said about it today (plus, thrown in, an “Orange Is the New Black Swan” reference!)…
Big news! In one week we’ll be holding the first-ever books.tumblr.com cover reveal! Check back next Monday, August 4, for the exclusive debut of the cover for Nova Ren Suma’s new YA novel The Walls Around Us.
We’re hearing lots of great buzz about this new one from the author of Imaginary Girls and 17 & Gone. It’s a ghostly story of suspense involving a young dancer and a girls’ juvenile detention center—just think of it as “Orange Is the New Black Swan.”
YES THIS IS HAPPENING THIS IS MY BOOK WHAT!! Tumblr Books is going to reveal my new book cover next week… and oh, oh, I love this cover, I can’t wait to show you. Stay tuned August 4 for the cover of THE WALLS AROUND US!
