I finally have a cover for the book, and lemme tell ya, it wasn’t easy. There were three other versions, one that even I attempted to mock up, but the “kid cover,” as I’m now calling it, was the one that was finally chosen. The first one had four pairs of Asian shoes and was deemed too “chick-litty.” The second one had three pairs of shoes, two Asian and one pair of Converse Chuck Taylors, but that, too, was ultimately too chick-lit. The one that I had created included a pair of graphics by an artist I was working with, and it unfortunately gave off a graphic-novel vibe that threatened to confuse potential readers.
I believe the boy is holding a fish fillet sandwich. Don’t ask.
