We’ve got a real treat today, because Paulette Bogan—who is both an author and an illustrator—is here to share the brand-new shiny cover of her upcoming The Lots-of-Time Machine.
I’m delighted that Kate Hosford is here celebrating her upcoming picture book, You’ll Always Be My Chickadee, and sharing the first peek at its final cover.
I’m excited to welcome Nika Teran today for the cover reveal of her middle grade time travel novel, Sisters in Delft. Nika has chosen to take the path of self-publishing for her debut novel, which in turn means self-art directing her cover design. When I ran into Nika at a Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators event, I was fascinated by the process she undertook to make her cover and thought you might be too.
Today is a first for What Was On. As you know, I throw out questions to writers, illustrators, editors, and agents, asking What Was On their desks, minds, t-shirts, refrigerators, and anything else I can think of. It wasn’t until Stef Wade and I were chatting that I realized I have been missing a FANTASTIC opportunity. Until today, I have never asked What Was On your cover! And since this brainchild was inspired by Stef it is only fitting that I ask this of her first—for her upcoming picture book, Moving to Mars.
