Really cool art contest with Princess Bookie

Tell Me a Secret - Worldwide Blog Tour

Cindy at Princess Bookie is hosting the most awesome blog stop today: a Re-Create a Cover Contest for TELL ME A SECRET!

So if you like to draw or PhotoShop or have mad image-searching skills (or even if you have no artistic inclinations whatsoever), come on over for the art party! I'm so in awe of the incredible entries already!

Visitors will vote for their favorites, and the top vote-getter gets...you guessed it, a signed copy of TELL ME A SECRET! I also get to comment on the top five (warning, I will probably gush with unabashed admiration).

And don't forget to comment here and at the Princess Bookie stop for a chance to win this week's books and prizes! (full details here)

Miranda, the main character in TELL ME A SECRET, is an artist who loves to draw labyrinths, so I thought I would show you a labyrinth I drew back in the day...(I guarantee Miranda's a better artist!):

That's circa...age 15. ;)

Wanna see the fake cover I made before I saw the real cover?

Hope you have fun recreating the cover, too!


  1. Ooh! What a creative, fun idea! I love art, but I'm definitely not tech savvy, so I'll leave that up to the someone else. I am, however, really looking forward to the entries!
    Love, Hannah

  2. This sounds like a great contest! I hope you get some fab entries.

  3. Thanks, Hannah and Tara! The entries are really phenomenal - there are links over at Princess Bookie. Some serious design talent out there! :)

  4. i like the whole labrynth concept

  5. Thank you! I kind of worried I wouldn't be able to shake them for the 2nd book, but then it turns out I didn't have to worry - labyrinths were a TMAS thing.
