Hogwarts ho!

WWHD? (What would Harry do?)

I’m back in the studio after a visit to Hogwarts West with my daughter—a visit that took place during California’s worst rainstorm of the past six years. As you can see from the above photo, the weather only added to the ambience.

After the restful experience of gale-force winds, pelting rain, and grey skies with a chaser of butterbeer, I’m eager to get back to work. On the dock: a visit to Scholastic to go over the last design details for Bad Princess and finishing the last edits on my novel-underway before sending off to my agent.

(Do you sense a theme here of completion? I do too! And hooray for that—so ready to launch these babies into the world!)

It’s here! At last! And isn’t she downright sassy?

Cover design by Scholastic book designer Maeve Norton. Illustration by Tobias Hall.

For more information, scoot over to Spine Magazine to read their exclusive article about the cover design process. I hope you love the Bad Princess cover as much as I do! Maeve and Tobias captured exactly what I requested for the cover: a subversive update of a turn-of-the-century fairy tale book.

Tomorrow: Bad Princess cover reveal!
