Yay!



I'm thrilled beyond words to present to you a sneak peak at the cover of Billy Coffey's debut novel, Snow Day.

I don't want to give away too much of the book, but I will tell you that this scene brings to mind one of my favorite chapters in the book. Okay, truth be told, they're all my favorite chapters. And yes, I know I'm helping Billy promote his book, but I wouldn't promote a book I didn't believe in, and even though I give him a hard time occasionally, I'm not exaggerating when I say I believe Billy Coffey is the best new writer of our generation. His body of work will be read for generations to come, blessing our children's children and beyond. He's just that good in my not so humble opinion. (Just don't tell him I said that, okay?)

Looks great! I have to admit, sometimes I judge a book by its cover. Shhh, don't tell anybody!

I'm eager to buy a copy of this book! Congrats, Billy!

Word. I'm gonna need to start saving some money. There's a lot of books coming out that I need to buy.

We'll keep this a big secret.

Perfect cover for what I'm sure is a marvelous story or a story marvelously told. Or both.

Can. Not. Wait.
For my autographed copy, of course.
And the schedule of book tours.

The cover plops me right back in my childhood. It's perfect.

Okay, how come that cover looks better on your blog than mine?

"And Billy's joy of seeing that first image of his novel cover was tempered by the harsh realization that yes, indeed, Katdish was indeed the boss of him."

Billy, it looks "better" here because it's bigger.

I'm going to change that on your blog, just for you....

Apparently It's size that matters!

I love it. I was wondering where the kids throwing each other down in the snow where, but then realized the book's setting isn't the playground at my old neighborhood... :-)

Joanne Sher said...

Looks GREAT. Can't wait to read it. (and be able to say I knew him when... ;))

Terra said...

The publisher did a super job creating this cover.
After reading your enthusiastic words I will look for this book.
So, do you really like the book? Ha ha, yes you do :)

Billy - Peter changed it on your blog, so now it looks better on your blog.

Peter - thank you.

Billy - again, you're welcome.

Beth said...

Suh-weeeet! Makes it somehow more real now that there's a cover and everything. :)

I'm greatly looking forward to this. I'm seriously excited. Kathy, you're great for doing this, especially because you say it's so great!

It's a gorgeous cover. Full of that softness that is Billy's words. I'm very happy for him!
