The First Line, Book 2, Cover Art


I am very excited to share the cover art for the second edition of The First Line. The First Line is a free writing contest, sponsored by All Booked Up and Peak City Publishing for young adults. Winning submissions are published in an anthology of short stories and available for sale on Amazon, through All Booked Up and the Peak City Publishing web site.

Book Two, based on the first line: "It was cute until" will feature cover art by Derrick M Eason. Laura Grace Wright, a high school student from Apex, NC, conveyed her vision of the book cover based on the winning manuscript: "When It's Over".

Other featured writers and stories include:

Arrianna Jian-Najar "Sparrowsong"
Ben Daniel "Alias AQ"
Carissa DiGeso "Upside"
Monica Doebel "Heaven"
Andi Pollock "Racing Towards Freedom"
Allie Miszewski "I Am Not A Rock"
Carey Shook "Family Before Lovers"

The book is currently in design phase and a publication date along with a celebration will be announced by 01/31/11!
