Oh my dears, we have a lot to cover today! First off, if you’ve been following Robyn on Twitter, you know how much she’s tweeted about writing this book and you know how excited I am that we’re finally hearing more news. Today I have some awesome things to tell you! Keep reading…
Remember last week when I announced the Cover Reveal Contest for Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider? Today we get to see the results! I wanted to find some covers that really told the story of the novel at hand. I also wanted to find something that would catch the eye of a reader walking down the aisles of a bookstore or scrolling through their Goodreads main page*.
The winner that I chose, along with the winners of the other blogger judges judging, will go to the next round. The judge of that round, Katherine Tegen (Robyn’s editor), will chose the winner. The winner will receive an advanced/early copy of the book.
I will update this post as soon as Tumblr stops giving me errors. I meant to have pictures of the covers, but you’ll only see one until then. Sigh.
The Winning One
I picked this cover design by Wildlinging on tumblr because it’s so bold and GAH I just love it! It would totally catch my eye and make me pick it up to read it. Sometimes I just enjoy judging a book by its cover and this would work wonderfully!
And now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for…
The Actual Cover of Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider
also known as: the one you’ll be holding in your hands on June 4, 2013… FINALLY.
There is a slight possibility that I love silhouettes paired with bold colors. Slight, okay?! I can’t wait to see the full jacket! It was a shocking cover at first, but over the past week, I’ve grown to love it. Like, really really LOVE it.

Summary of Severed Heads, Broken Hearts
Golden boy Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them—a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen. His particular tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it all: in one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra’s knee, his athletic career, and his social life.
No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King, Ezra finds himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met, achingly effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on her endless adventures.
But as Ezra dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must consider: if one’s singular tragedy has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what happens when more misfortune strikes?
*Do ya’ll still go to bookstores? I’m sitting in one now. There aren’t very many people here, but then again it’s also Friday at noon.
