And the winning cover for WE ARE THE GHOSTS is...

It’s no secret that I’m absolutely and completely obsessed with book covers. Guys, when was the last time you went to the bookstore? The YA cover game right now is on point! What a time to be alive!!

I get a little excited…

But seriously, when I got the cover directions for We Are the Ghosts, I freaked out. I was in my car, on my way to work (DON’T CHECK EMAILS AND DRIVE) when I got the email and promptly had a heart attack. The potential covers for Ghosts are absolutely gorgeous! And they all represent a very important aspect of the book: The Murky Blue Cover that represents the darkness of the trip they’re going on (don’t even get me started on that overlay with the stars because omg I love it so much), The Road Map Cover that shows the long and winding road our group ends up on and the questions that arise as they move forward, The Smoky Sky Cover that shows Ellie on her road to healing and forgiveness, and The Rainbow Dash Cover that shows the magic of being on the open highway.

*SIGH* I love them all! Connie Gabbert did such an excellent job with all of them! But there could only be one winner and that was…

I can’t even describe how much I love this cover! There’s so much of the story here. At its core, it’s a story of repressed emotion and loss and comfort, and I see all of that here. I love how dark it is, I love the colors (in case it wasn’t obvious, I LOVE blue covers!), I love the shadowy outlines, I love the stars, I love the font, ugh I just love EVERYTHING!

Thank you for choosing this cover! And thank you, Connie, for giving me a cover that I could be so proud of!
