When I first saw the cover for LOOP, the first words out of my mouth were, "It's gorgeous!" And now that I've had some time to ponder it, my thoughts are.... It's gorgeous!
My second thought was, "Oh, my. That's pretty hot." LOOP is a romantic book. But it's not a "romance" per se.
My mom (who hasn't read it yet) summed it up well after she first saw it:
I mean, come on. It's about a time traveler who finds out a boy from the past is already in love with her future self. You know there's going to be some snogging shenanigans.
My third thought was, "I wonder where I can get that t-shirt." (And I've gotten that question from a lot of other people, too.)
All right, one more look, and then I'll stop swooning for the day.
LOOP's Cover--My Mom's Take
Labels: Geekishness, Help Me Out Here, I Heart This, I Should Be Writing, LOOP, My Peeps, What Was I Thinking
My name's Karen Akins. And my debut YA sci-fi novel LOOP is coming out October 21, 2014 with St. Martin's Press. It's all sorts of time travelly goodness. I'm a self-professed geek--also a wife to Hubbykins, a mom to the Pea and Boo, and a follower of Jesus. And, occasionally, I find time to vacuum. I'm repped by the marvelous Victoria Marini at Gelfman Schneider Literary Agency.
