Electric Boogaloo

got the cover for PI 2: Electric Boogaloo yesterday.

it's stunning.

i SO want to share it! but i'm concerned about showing it off too early. i'm afraid people will be sick of the book before the release which is still 9 months out. i'm thinking the cover exposure should come more like 6 months out or even 4? i don't know. anyway, the cover is amazing. i'm also really happy with the title. i sent a list of ideas to my editor and several people at the publishing house chose this one. it's also a very amusing acronym. well, some might not think it so amusing, but i do. i might post the acronym soon and see if people can guess the title. unfortunately i let it slip to a couple of people, so that will spoil the fun for them. sorry!

I'm going to ask Madame Sosostris about the title. Maybe she will tell me. :)

Anne McAllister said...

You tease, Anne. No title, no cover -- just hints. And we're supposed to wait MONTHS? Oh, sure.

You mean we won't be visiting the morgue again?

Not happy, Anne. Not happy at all. ;)

Congratulations on everything coming together!!

Say it ain't so!

jeff, i haven't even told madame S. she'd get drunk and blab it to everybody.

anne, i doubt i'll be able to control myself -- i'll probably put it up -- maybe briefly -- sometime soon. i'm hoping i can at least hold off until april. but then i'll put it up and people will shrug, because the writer is the only one who really cares about the cover. people will yawn behind their hands and politely say it's nice. :D

jason, i'm sorry about no sex in the morgue. hey, there's another title.

patrick: i love that quote.
i actually tried to figure out how to get some sex in the book, but there was no place for it. hard to believe, i know. :D

I really really like the vinyl record. I can't believe I didn't notice it before. Nice work.

And it's probably better there's no morgue sex. I'm so tired of morgue sex. Reading about it, having it, the whole nine yards. Even though you hear stuff like "cadaverage is above average", the smell of formaldehyde gets to be pretty noxious and you end up missing having a partner that moans a little once in a while. Or breathes at all for that matter. I know, call me fussy.

cadaverage is above average

okay, i have to use this: LOL!
