I've been sitting on this for a while because there were lots of little details to wrap up, but the wait is over.

Here's my squee-filled cover for Untalented, created by the lovely and extremely patient Heather McDougal ( and

Fun facts about this cover:

For the front cover, we found a model who's closer to how I picture Saroya in my head than I'd thought possible. I couldn't find the old computer-generated sketches of her that I got from an online character generator a long time ago, but the resemblance is eerie.

The canal scene on the back cover is from one of my own pictures of Venice. Heather tied it fantastically well into the world of the story, and it wound up representing an actual scene in the book.

I have too much squee. The book itself will be coming out some time this summer. Stay tuned!
