Survey: Picking the Cover Art and Title for a New Book!

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?

Sounds great, right?  Plus, just for participating, you will be entered into a draw for a $50 gift card to Barnes and Noble!  And I've been assured that both my American and Canadian readers can participate!  There are four options to vote for and I know which cover I'd like to see on the front.  

Now you can ...

So, if you have a few minutes you can Click here to add your two cents.  The poll ends December 21, 2014.

And if you haven't picked up Hush Little Baby yet, I highly recommend it.

I also loved Hush Little Baby despite the content! I work in a library and recommended this book for purchase which they did. I have read a lot of debut authors this year and have found some real gems!!

Me too, Janine! I love finding new authors and can't wait for this new book from Suzanne Redfearn but we'll have to wait until 2016, unfortunately.

I'm so happy that our library system ordered a copy of Hush Little Baby for each branch. They seem to be out to customers quite a bit. Feels wonderful to share a great read with others, doesn't it?

Laurie, Can I suggest an Australian author that I am really impressed with. Her name is Dawn Barker, and her first novel is Fractured, about post natal depression, and her second Let her go, about surrogacy. Highly recommended, and I think gives Jodi Picoult a run for her money!! Let me know what you think.

Going to be on the lookout for Hush Little Baby, this is a new author to me. My library doesn't have it :(, searching....

Janine - I have added Dawn Barker's books to my ever-growing TBR pile on GoodReads. Thanks for the suggestions!

Margaret - I really enjoyed Hush Little Baby. I hope you can find it. It is available on Amazon (at least in Kindle format. I'd love to know what you think of it.
