 26 Comments |  Share This:    

STATUS: HOTEL landed in the USA Today bestseller list for the very first time. Granted, pretty high up there at #118, but hey it’s start. Right after Eckhart Tolle.

What’s playing on the iPod right now? HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE RAIN? by Spin Doctors (CCR cover)

June 9th.

The galleys didn’t even have the cover. You blog readers are some of the first people to see it.

    Looks great, but the Australian covers for the other two books were different, I wonder if they’ll do the same thing here. I prefer the American covers myself.

    That cover is fantastic! I love it! And, congrats, once again, to you and Jamie. I’m betting HOTEL is going to be moving quickly up many best seller lists. (Coincidentally, I’ll be interviewing Chris Barron, the lead singer from the Spin Doctors, for my Philly Songwriter Examiner gig.)

    I thought this one might be red, since the other two were green and blue. The plaid spines look so nice on a bookshelf 🙂

    Wondering if Ally is going to RWA in July? My daughter turns 14 on the last day of Nationals so I’m flying her in to spend the day with me and to go to the RITA/GH ceremony. I told her she might get to meet Ally and her eyes lit up! She loved the first two books.

    OOOOH So excited. Is this a first run in Hard Cover? (so I know what I’m going to be telling people to watch for.)

    I’m interested in this title though. The other titles were clearly play on words, but in a clever way. This one, unless cover is meant in the “under cover” sense, is not.

    I love the cover! My youngest sister is still in high school and at her old private school that is definitely what most of the girls dressed like, so awesome job!

    I’m looking forward to my latest Gallagher girl update.

    As for Hotel, I bought a copy and loved it so much I knew I would never share it so bought an additional copy for my mom.

    Please take this in the non-perverted way in which it is intended — I seriously want that cover model’s thighs.

    REALLY cute cover! Fun and smart. My favorite cover of the three. Congrats to Ally.

    Anonymous at 8:07, I think this is clearly “cover” in the spy sense. As in, “don’t judge a girl by her cover story.”

    Since I’m over 40, and a male, I’m not really the target audience here, but I just wanted to chime in. I love the title of this book. It is so good on so many levels. Bravo for everyone involved in the naming.

    WOW! I can’t wait to read it! Have to read CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO SPY first and I can’t wait! Seriously, Ms. Carter has a way with words. I love her! 🙂

    Can’t wait for this book, and Ally has totally gotten lucky in the cover department. They’ve all been fabulous! Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy is still my favorite cover, though.
