In bringing Social Vampire into the world as a novel, I knew I had to create a cover that jumps off the page as much as the story does. Something that would showcase the fact that the book is hilarious, but with heart hiding beneath.
After weeks of design and workshopping, I finally have a cover I love.
And today I’m ready to show it off!
What’s more: as of now, the book is available for preorder in both Kindle edition and paperback.
What’s even more: the book is available to PURCHASE TODAY in hardcover. That’s right, you can get Social Vampire a full five weeks early in hardcover! I’m still waiting for my copy to arrive so I can show it off, but the hardcover edition has a gorgeous removable dust jacket and a handful of interior illustrations to make it extra special.
A few notes:
- With an official release date of 4/4/2023, the novel will launch in paperback, ebook, and audiobook (hopefully…more on this later).
- The ebook version will initially be Kindle-exclusive for 90 days to do various promos, with plans to take the electronic version wide to other retailers after this launch period.
- The paperback preorder currently shows “unavailable” on Amazon, but I’m told this should update any day now. The paperback and hardcover are already available for preorder/purchase respectively at all major book retailers, including Barnes & Noble.
- As of this post, the hardcover purchase page is so new that sales page doesn’t show the cover image, but rest assured, it’s the same as what you can see below…
So, without further ado, here’s the cover for Social Vampire!
At a new school, you get a chance to reinvent yourself, so…why not be a vampire?
What do you think? Personally, I LOVE how it turned out. From the sad-sack vampire telling us “a novel” to the mean girls vibe of the teens at the top, for me it just works.
(Aside, from a design perspective, he’s the one “upside down” but we’re seeing the story from his point of view).
And here’s the full wraparound cover:
Okay, I’ve told you enough times that I love this cover, but now I want your thoughts! Let me know in the comments what you think (good, bad, or ugly — I’m happy to receive whatever feedback you’ve got).
Are you excited to read my first novel?
Will you be waiting for the ebook, the paperback, the audiobook, or picking up the hardcover right now?
I’ll share pictures once I get my copy of the hardcover and share more about the audiobook version soon.
Until then, I remain:
