The Eyes Have It?

I happened to be checking to see when the next new Stephanie Plum book by Janet Evanovich was coming out when I discovered something interesting. The back cover copy for my first book, THE COMPANY YOU KEEP, says-- "Following in the footsteps of Janet Evanovich and Valerie Wilson Wesley, Angela Henry introduces an unlikely heroine in Kendra Clayton. . ."-- I could kinda see the Wilson Wesley comparison but could never figure out where the Evanovich comparison came from. Well it seems to go a bit further. Check out the cover for the very first Plum novel, ONE FOR THE MONEY, which was released in 1994. Hmmm. Interesting, don'tcha you think? Someone in the art department of the former "BET Books" must be have been inspired.

Can't wait to read this new novel. After all, the then 17 year old author got a $500,000 bo0k advance for it. So, it has to be good, right? Riiight.

Thanks! I like my cover better, too. But I always wondered how the artist came up with the idea for the eyes. I guess now I know ; ).

Did you HAVE to mention the age thing?
If I'm double her age, will I get double the advance?

Angela Henry said...

LOL! I know what you mean! It would probably take me two lifetimes to ever get an advance that big! Must be nice.
