Cross My Heart and hope for an amazing cover – or two!

Posted on March 19, 2012 by in News

Cross My Heart, a thrilling historical young adult book, came out in the USA last week! It’s now been published by Random House in the US and by Puffin Books in the UK. We’re really proud of this tale of intrigue and romance in 16th century Venice.

One of the wonderful things about working in the publishing industry is the way we get to see the same story presented in different ways by publishers in different countries.

This is the gorgeous, evocative cover of the Random House edition:


Whereas here’s the cool, Hollywood-poster version that appeared on UK shelves:


Personally, I love them both. I have a soft spot for the strange, punky UK cover but I can’t deny the sheer romance of the US version.
