So we've learned a lot about publishing since we sold THE LIAR SOCIETY just over a year ago.
Lesson #1: As you know and we enjoy pointing out, publishing moves SLOW. Slower than mere mortals like us could ever conceive of.
Lesson #2: Publishing is a roller coaster. One second you're on top of the world with dreams of becoming the next Meg Cabot (unrealistic? wha?), the next second you're....not.
Lesson #3: Sometimes things happen that you have no control over and you just have to roll with the punches. In this case, the absolute wrong cover was "leaked" to Amazon and Goodreads.*
At first we were shocked that we were even remotely cool enough to have anything associated with us "leaked," and then we were confused because (just for the record) Kate does not wear glasses. Not that we have anything against glasses, because we totally don't. Glasses are great! They help you see better and they're tres fashionable in the right context. Hell, we even considered giving Kate a monocle, but we decided against it at the last minute.
The point is this cover is wrong. This will not be the cover of THE LIAR SOCIETY. In fact, we have some really, really amazing things planned over the next couple of weeks related to the cover of THE LIAR SOCIETY, so we were a little sad when this placeholder image was released.
But as lesson #3 has taught us, when publishing sends you lemons you make lemonade (or in our case, limoncello). So we've decided to take this opportunity to unleash our fancy new website for THE LIAR SOCIETY upon the interwebs. Click and enjoy. And PLEASE stay tuned because we've got some really cool stuff planned for THE LIAR SOCIETY and it's coming soon!
Your monocle loving writer friends,
*Mwahaha the wrong cover has now been removed from both sites, so our cover will remain a mystery until our epic cover contest is revealed. Stay tuned for updates!
