Okay, my lovelies, I have some exciting news and some not-so-exciting news. The exciting news is twofold: not only is Beauty Confidential now available at Target (whoo!), but you can preorder my first novel, Confessions of a Beauty Addict, on both target.com and amazon.com now. Mark November 18 on your calendars, because that’s when the book comes out, and I promise you’ll love it.
The not-so-exciting news: somebody at my publishing house wants the cover of Confessions to look like this. I just don’t know what to say.
Here’s the other cover option, which I think is much better, even though, as the lovely ladies at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books pointed out, the girl looks like she’s about to start making out with the dog, and that’s just bizarre. Plus…um…there are no dogs in my book. And, er, the cover has nothing to do with makeup products. Whatever, I get what they’re going for, and I do find the cover adorable on the whole.
Here’s a little peek:
“When Bella Hunter, beauty expert and magazine editor wunderkind, loses her job at chic style-bible Enchante for spilling top industry secrets to The Post she thinks her life is over. And, to top it all off, she’s managed to dye her hair bright orange. At her wits’ end and desperate not to return home with her tail between her legs, Bella accepts a job at Womanly World, a magazine her mom reads. (The shame!) But how can she face her glamorous ex-coworkers now that she works in an office where khaki (not Cavalli) is the way of life? Armed with her Marc Jacobs, three meddling best friends, and her flighty supermodel boyfriend, Bella is out to wage war on the beauty world one bad makeover at a time. At odds with her stuffy (and undeniably gorgeous) publisher, Bella begins to realize that she may be fighting the wrong battle.”
Let me know what you think, and don’t forget to pre-order!
