So this, my friends, is what sometimes happens when publishers choose to go with photographs of actual people on the covers of books, especially in YA, it would seem:
|Vampire Academy meets Angelina Jolie = Jolie Academy??|
|Thanks to my sister (who pointed this one out), I'll never be able|
to look at my copy of Ophelia again without seeing Michael Cera.
|It's not exact, but it's close enough to make me think Incarnate cover girl |
resembles Jackie Emerson aka 'Foxface' from the Hunger Games movie.
|Slap a fascinator on Gathering gal and you've almost got Kate Middleton.|
|Well hello, Ms. Moore. That dress looks awfully nice on you on that cover.|
|Where She Went? Um, she's Lost on an island somewhere. And she's blonde.|
In completely unrelated and completely awful news, my notebook's hard drive cacked out today. Yep, it up and crashed on me, and now I can't even turn my notebook on. The super fun thing about this is that lately I've become a bit slack with backing up all of the BIG changes I've made to my WiP. Right now I'm afraid of the possibility that even the techiest of techie dudes won't be able to save it. That scares me because I'm not sure I can replicate the many changes I've made, particularly in the wording. Think happy thoughts. Think about Peeta. Think happy thoughts. Think about Peeta... So until I can get this mess all sorted out, I may be a little absent on the blogs. We'll just have to see.
Here's hoping the odds are in my favor...
P.S. I should probably mention that this lovely notebook is only 3 months old. And it was free (as part of a contract deal with our TV/internet/phone provider). Which proves one or two things: 1) Few things are actually free, and 2) HP pretty much sucks. You hear that, HP? You stink. The End.
