Throughout our recent Kickstarter we teased the upcoming eleventh Unshelved book. Now we can finally reveal the title and cover. Please welcome Reads Well With Others, our first full-color collection!
We think the cover came out particularly well, and we wanted to let you into our design process. Because I'm the road, Gene and I did all this while he was in Seattle and I was traveling through the American Midwest. We communicated through a series of screenshots, which I saved and then assembled them into the animation you see above.
With that the front cover was done. We then went through a shorter process for the back cover, which you can see on the store page. Then I layed out the interior pages, ran them by our ace copyeditor Rob Hurvitz, and sent them off to the printer.
The books are scheduled to be delivered to Seattle by the end of November, and Jana will start shipping them out shortly thereafter.
We hope you love our new book as much as we do!
