I’m am SO excited to (finally!) share the covers for S.E.C.R.E.T. SHARED, both the U.S. and Canadian covers. Seeing how your book is interpreted by designers is something that will never get old— and I feel really lucky to have two beautiful covers that express different aspects of S.E.C.R.E.T. Shared. Here’s my take on what I love about them both:
Canadian version: the red ribbon is a delicious detail since, as you’ll read, red is a very important color throughout S.E.C.R.E.T. SHARED and not just because Dauphine Mason (Daphne en Francais), our new S.E.C.R.E.T. candidate, has long, beautiful red hair. The restraints hint that the stakes are higher in this book, and Cassie’s sexual confidence, though welcome, brings with it another host of obstacles she must overcome in order to be with Will, the love of her life.
American version: we obsessed over every detail on this cover! It perfectly captures a key moment in the book that takes place in a dark tango club in Buenos Aires. It alludes to clothing and costumes which play a pivotal role for both Dauphine and Cassie, who must “shed” a lot of layers to find that essential sexual self at the center of every woman.
