This new Beautiful Disaster book cover is absolutely GORGEOUS! To me, it symbolizes Travis and Abby’s love story, perfectly. The beautiful butterfly, caught in a jar. But think about… exactly who is the butterfly in the jar? You’d almost think it would be Abby, but I say it’s Travis. Or both of them, each in their own way. Which is why this book blew me away.
Author Jamie McGuire says:
Beautiful Disaster’s paperback edition will be available for purchase in just a few days! You will definitely notice something new about it. This news may be a relief to some, and disheartening to others. We all know BD’s cover has been nothing less than controversial. I loved it, and I know many of you did, too. But for those that just couldn’t bring themselves to buy it based on that eye-catching tongue…I present to you…Beautiful Disaster’s brand new cover, courtesy of Justin McClure.tv. I hope you love it as much as I do!
We (and by we I mean me and the JustinMcClure.tv team) knew that if we weren’t going to try to replicate or soften the original cover…we would have to do go a completely different direction. We just went back and forth a lot on ideas, and Justin thought the butterfly in the jar with a sense of unknown beyond the light really brings the message of the book across. I agreed. 🙂
Here are some tidbits about the upcoming release of this print version:
- Designed by Justin McClure
- It will hopefully be available for order by this Friday November 4th, 2011 (for now it’s still linking to the e-book version, but as soon as the print version is up, I’ll update it.)
- It will be available at first, via Amazon and directly on the author’s ebook store.
- When a fan stated she was partial to the first cover, Jamie agreed and said: “Jennifer, I am, too, but if the original could be replaced with the best possible cover, I feel this one is it!” – I wholeheartedly agree. While I was one of those that liked the original book cover just fine, everything about this cover intrigues me… pulls me in. I just know I’m in for something big with this one.
- and LOOK!!! Looooooook!! *squeeeeeeeeee* It’s me! On the back of the cover. I am so honored. I had NO idea!! I promise, you guys!! We all know I stumbled into this book quite a few months ago, completely by accident and then I just went crazy over it. This is just icing on my crazy cake!!! Tee heeeee!!!
