And the winning cover for THE BRIGHTSIDERS is...

Hey everyone! 

Wow, I have had a blast seeing everyone voting for the cover of The Brightsiders. When the covers first landed in my inbox, I was blown away by the designs.

Becca S. did an incredible job, and I’m so grateful to see glitter and rockstar vibes and bisexual pride colors on each one. I would’ve been happy to see any one of them sitting on my shelf!

I followed the votes, comments and social media buzz around the choices, and from the start there was one that people really seemed to click with instantly. And I’m so glad, because it’s the one that stood out to me too!

So, now it’s time to reveal the winning cover. But seeing as this is a book about a drummer, I just gotta do this…


And the winner is…

*cue cheering crowd*

I know, right?! The moment I saw this cover, I thought, ‘That’s Emmy!’ With her hair in the bisexual pride colors, those rockstar sunglasses and purple lipstick, it just screams BRIGHTSIDERS. And it fits nicely with Queens of Geek, both having colored hair on the cover. Which is great because Charlie, Alyssa, Taylor and Jamie may just make an appearance or two in The Brightsiders... *wink, wink*

Thank you SO much to everyone who voted, commented and shared! And a huge round of applause to Becca S. for designing such a rocking cover!
