The Liar Society Cover Revealed (For real this time!)

We are beyond excited to share the final cover for THE LIAR SOCIETY with you!

Drum roll please...

TA DA!!!!


Okay, okay, we know what you're thinking...PINK HAIR!?! We were completely shocked too (more on that Monday), but we've officially fallen in love. I mean, how many pink-haired, pearl-rocking, bad ass detectives do YOU know? Yeah, that's what we thought.

And now, it's time to announce the winner of The Liar Society (Under)Cover Contest including:

THE BODY FINDER and DESIRES OF THE DEAD by Kimberly Derting;
PRADA AND PREJUDICE and YOU WISH by Mandy Hubbard; 
PICTURE THE DEAD, THE JULIAN GAME, an ARC of TIGHTER by Adele Griffin;
DECEPTION and an ARC of BETRAYAL by Lee Nichols; and
a signed ARC of THE LIAR SOCIETY (Um, if you want it signed that is? We still feel sort of weird about defacing books!)

Second round of drum rolls please.........

RACHELE ALPINE!!!!!! 

Rachele, thanks to the random number generator number 278 is now your lucky number. CONGRATULATIONS!

We had over 300 entries (holy crap, right?) and we wanted to give something to ALL of you guys for participating. 

SO...if you're interested in getting an e-mail from Kate's dead bestie that will unlock a super-secret, super-exciting clue hidden in The Liar Society website CLICK HERE. Trust us...you're going to want to see this. Besides, when's the last time you got an e-mail from a dead girl?*

Thanks everyone for helping us make this contest and cover reveal such a HUGE success. And stay tuned for some so-amazing-you're-not-even-gonna-believe-what-we've-got-planned contests coming in February and March.

XOXO,
L&L

CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS!!

Looking forward to hearing the story behind the pink hair, but over all the cover rocks!

Jessica Bell said...

That is ONE AWESOME COVER! Congrats!

Rachele Alpine said...

WAAAAAAAAAAA! I'm so excited! Like Jessie Spano so excited (without the crash and breakdown after!). Woo hoo! And I LOVE the cover...the pink hair and pearls are so sassy!

Jill Hathaway said...

Congrats! Very striking!

Matthew Rush said...

Congrats Rachele!

And LiLa, I'm not trying to say anything bad at all about the old cover, but this one is way cooler. I love the uniform, I love the tie, I love the hair, but I ESPECIALLY love the attitude that model is rockin. She would probably be hawt if she wasn't, you know, jail bait.

Have a great weekend!

Robin said...

I love the hair! The cover is very sassy!

K.D. Anderson said...

Ahhh... What a relief to finally be able to love on your cover! Can't wait to hear about the pink hair. Did you have to go back and write about it in the book? That would be really cool. Do that.

Love seeing it on the side of your blog too!

Jen Daiker said...

Congrats Rachel!!!!!!

OMG! I am in LOVE with the cover!!!! LiLa this is amazing!!! Reading the book this matches perfectly! Love the pearls! Oh how I love the pearls! I'll be wearing them on release day!!!!!

I'm with Matthew, nothing bad on the old cover but I think this cover adds so much funk and flair to it!!! Girls will be dying to have a copy and all will describe it as "LOOK FOR THE PINK HAIR" wow!!! Just Wow!

Simon C. Larter said...

Congrats, ladies! That's a pretty kick-ass cover.

Just so you know: in my head, Scarlett Johansson's playing the role of Kate in the movie adaptation. *grin*

Cheers!

(Boy, you can always count on me to smut up your comment section, can't you? What kind of author brand am I creating here...?)

Christina Lee said...

YEAH Rachele! I am SO glad it's that cover, I REALLY REALLY love it!!!!

Kim Harrington said...

YAY! Congrats!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

It wasn't the cover I had originally picked. But then later I decided it was way better. There was something about (maybe the pink hair) that said 'read me'. The other one didn't do that. If I saw both books on the table at Chapters. I would have picked up this one. It rocks!

Now that you and Janet G have kick ass covers, I can't wait to read the books. Spring can't come soon enough. :D

Magan said...

WAITTTTTTTTT...is that Emma Watson? If it's not it really looks like her and if I wasn't intrigued before I am now!

Megan Miranda said...

Tracey Neithercott said...

I love it! I actually think the pink hair makes it way cooler. She has major attitude.

Karsten Knight said...

I love it--the model on the cover has a Selma Blair meets chic rock thing going on. Also a big fan of the website (especially the lightsaber noise when you change pages).

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

What a super cool cover! I totally didn't expect the pink hair, but she totally rocks it, with the pearls and the uniform...dang, that's awesome and full of spunk. Congrats on such a fabulous cover, ladies!

Krispy said...

I remember liking the pre-cover with this pink-haired girl; I just wasn't sure if that sort of obvious punkiness was Kate-like (granted I only know Kate through this blog).

BUT I do LOVE your cover! It's cute and spunky, and it fits the fun impression I have of the book. And ditto what someone already said: great tagline! Congrats!!!

T. Anne said...

LOVE this. And I'm partial to pink hair and pearls. ;)

Ian Shimkoviak said...

Glad you like it. This was one crazy cover design story. Besides the fact that I did probably in the area of 30+ concepts, we actually did a photoshoot with a model as well and out of 400 pictures of the poor girl, none were chosen. In the end, the publisher went back to an old comp I had done with this pink haired girl. While I did not get it, looking at it now and seeing everyone's positive feedback, it has grown on me too and I am rather pleased. Hope it's a success for you and I hope we can continue the series with this particular look and model... Happy trails ladies!

Best,

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
