Some of my blog readers may remember that almost exactly a year ago I was utterly ga-ga over the book "Hush Little Baby", the debut novel from new author Suzanne Redfearn. I found it to be emotional, with an edge of your seat story line and well developed characters who I could root for. Her writing style reminds me of authors such as Jodi Picoult, Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes. It was so amazing that I even suggested that the library where I work order a few copies ... and they did. Yup, it was that good!
When I was contacted recently to see if my readers would help vote for the cover photo and title for Suzanne's next fictional novel I thought that this would be a perfect fit for all y'all. I figure that there's probably many of you who, like me, are initially attracted to books based on their cover art and title. And honestly, who among us wouldn't want a say into the image and title for a new book? No one, right?
Here's a short synopsis of the upcoming book:
Four year old Molly Martin is suddenly thrust into stardom after a YouTube video of her doing an impromptu jig with a street musician goes viral. Hollywood falls in love with Molly and initially her family thinks that they have hit the jackpot. Molly is suddenly famous and her opportunities seem endless. But they quickly see their lives begin unravel as the negative aspects of Hollywood begin to make cracks in their family. Will Mary's family be able to survive the tumultuous world of Hollywood?
