Winter never looked so pretty! New cover art!

Feast those sweet little eyes of yours on the cover art for Something Like Winter!

Something Like Winter by Jay Bell cover art

Andreas and I put a lot of thought into this one. We wanted a cover that harkened back to Something Like Summer. One of the earliest ideas we had was to invert that cover. Since Summer’s cover is looking over Ben’s shoulder at Tim, we figured Winter’s art should depict Tim looking at Ben. We also thought it would be neat to invert the colors. Instead of orange with a touch of those wonderful blue shoes, we have blue with a kiss of sunshine from Ben.

Full cover art isn’t really meant to be seen like this, with the front, back, and spine visible all at the same time. Something Like Summer had Ben on the back as well, so likewise we get to see another image of Tim here. Of course the full view makes it look like there are two Tim’s in one place, an idea that has me fanning my nether regions. Yeah, you heard me right. Let’s return our focus to the art. Didn’t Andreas do a fantastic job? Don’t you just want to kiss his face and tell him how adorable he is? I know I do!

Something Like Winter is due out on November 2nd. You can learn more about the book by reading the blog entry before this one. I’ll see you guys then!

    Just finished “Something Like Winter” in one sitting. While I know words won’t express my love for this book- I just want to thank you for existing and letting these books be a part of mine, and others’, lives. I’ve never read something that evokes so much emotion in me. Everything is so real and genuine- “Something Like Winter” was everything I wanted and more. Eric and Tim, absolutely perfect. Reading the online Kindle version from my computer, I was blissfully unaware of how much I had actually read, how many pages were left, and assumed it was ending in Ben’s apartment after seeing Tim’s new painting. After realizing there was added chapters I could’ve cried from happiness. SO again, thank you, you’re awesome- I look forward to the movie and reading more of your books to come! :)

    • Hey John! Wow! You’re a fast reader! I think it would take me at least 20 or so hours to read through the book. You might be the first reader “in the wild” to have read through the whole book already. Naturally I’m thrilled then that you enjoyed it. I always feel a little sad when publishing, because in a way I’m letting go of the characters and I miss them. Then I get messages like yours, and I feel happy again. Thanks for taking the time to write!

    This book makes it SO HARD to be mad at Tim! I was practically exploding waiting for Ben to appear. Tim’s cool and all, but he has a scary side. Diabolical.
