It's here! Exactly ten days before the release date of A Night Without Stars I present to you, without further adieu, the official cover:

Sixteen-year-old Lola is a daredevil. She likes playing hooky, making out with bad boy Everett James, and stealing cars. The reason behind all of her rebellious antics? Because she can. But what can one girl do against a horde of murderous vampires?

Aided by her sometimes sober father, her best friend Travis, and Maximus, the mysterious stranger who appeared out of no where to save her life, Lola must accomplish what the rest of the human race has failed to do in the aftermath of the world wide massacre: survive.

But how do you survive when everything you know has been destroyed... and the one person you thought you could trust ends up being the most dangerous 
person of all?

The cover is very, very different from the original cover of Pitch, the novella on which ANWS is based. I wanted something edgier, while still being very bare and stark. It took me almost two months of searching until I found base image on bigstockphoto. As soon as I clicked on it, I knew.

Even though the "pretty dress" trend is popular in young-adult right now, ANWS is definitely not a pretty dress kind of novel. I love the raw quality of the photo, and was particularly drawn by the model's eye. Her expression is solemn, but there's a spark in her eye that instantly makes me think of Lola. 

I wanted the font to be very simple and not distract from the main image, which is why I eventually decided on Century Gothic. I never planned on making the A's red. Initially I wanted the entire cover to be black and white, but it needed that extra "pop" to make it stand out. 

I'm really, really happy with how it turned out and I hope you are as well! Look for ANWS on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo on the 21st of this month! Until then, make sure to add it to your TBR list on Goodreads. Just click here.
