ME & JACK cover!

The pub date for ME & JACK is June 2011, so when my editor sent me the cover, I thought I'd hold onto it for a while. Then I saw it on AMAZON! So here, making its debut on my blog, is the gorgeous cover illustration by Greg Swearingen:

Twitter blurb:
Me & Jack
: New kid has problems: he’s an outsider; no one likes his dog; and his dad’s a recruiter for Vietnam. Done talking—time to fight.

Longer blurb later!

Love the cover! How dare Amazon scoop your news - the nerve. You have really good luck with your book covers.

Danette Haworth said...

Thanks, Sandy! Greg, the artist, read the book before coming up with the illustration--I really liked that he did that. He captured Jack (the dog) perfectly.

How dare they scoop me! haha!

Wow, striking. This will get readers' attention, which is what a cover is supposed to do. Congratulations.

Annika said...

Love it! And it goes so perfectly with your other covers, while being entirely its own at the same time.

Charles Gramlich said...

Very cool. I like that a lot.

You are a wonder. What a career you've created! So proud for you.
Sorry puppy is using you as a scratching post. Puppies are so hard; that's why God makes them adorable.
Will I see you in Miami this January? Sure hope so!

I LOVE IT! It has a timeless feel to it... wonderful. Congrats, Danette! I cannot wait to read this and put it on the Danette Haworth space in my bookshelf. :) So excited for you!!!

Danette Haworth said...


I think it's striking, too! The green is saturated and simple enough to act as a perfect backdrop for Jack. Thank you!

Thanks, Annika! I never thought about how they would all go together, but you're right--I like that!

Charles, thank you!

Oh, Donna! Thank you! I would love to go to Miami, but I don't think I'll make it 2011; hopefully in 2012!

Thanks for remembering. I can't wait to read your book!

Your comment made me feel so good--the Danette Haworth space on your bookshelf. Thank you!
