Hi, sweet readers.
I'm all emotional today. You know that I believe in a few things when it comes to this whole crazy publishing business.
One is that the people who love you and your book are POWERFUL when it comes to getting the word out.
Another is that one of the best ways to promote art (yes, I'm calling my book art, hush.) is with other art.
Well, I'm very lucky that one of the people who loves me and ONE most in the whole world also happens to be a super talented artist. Combine those two things and it's like one of Andrea Hannah's superpowers (along with writing heartbreakingly beautiful characters and poetic prose) is creating stunning custom art for ONE.
Yeah. I know. "Lucky" doesn't even begin to cover it.
She had this idea, to take some of the things that most moved her about ONE and to translate them into custom minimalist prints with a mixed-media feel.
I didn't really give her much guidance, because I wanted to see what SHE loved about the book. It was a great instinct, because OMG YOU GUYS LOOK:
That's a quote from Merrin, and it's one of her most emotionally bare moments in the whole book. She's taking a huge risk by admitting that, and guess what? I had totally forgotten about that line.
But Andrea picked up on it. Isn't it BEAUTIFUL?
I'm so excited that Andrea and I are giving away the signed print that you see above!
All you have to do is leave a comment below, telling us which quote you would most like to see made into a custom print. It could be your book or any book in the whole wide world! We're just book geeks, so satisfy our curiosity about what you think are some of literature's most art-worthy lines. (Oh! And tweet about it for an extra entry, if you please.)
Thanks, sweeties! *smooosh* And good luck!!!!
