Just last week, I revealed the cover to my next novel, Twenty-one Truths About Love, which publishes in October.
But that wasn’t entirely correct.
My actual next novel is titled The Other Mother, and it will publish in the UK and Australia in June of this year and will publish in the United States sometime in 2020.
In truth, I wrote The Other Mother first, and it was supposed to be my next book published in the United States, too, but then my new editor had the chance to read the first half of Twenty-one Truths About Love, and she and my publisher decided to reverse the order of publication, forcing me to finish Twenty-one Truths About Love early.
If you noticed that I was a little harried last year, now you know why.
But I was thrilled. They were so excited about the book and its potential that they wanted it on store shelves as soon as possible.
So today I’m revealing the cover of The Other Mother, which will grace the UK and Australian editions of the novel. When it finally lands in the United States late next year, the cover will almost assuredly be different.
The name, for example, will definitely be different. My pen name in the UK is Matthew Green after it was determined that my actual last name might offend British sensibilities.
Green is Elysha’s maiden name.
But I like this cover a a lot. I hope you do, too, particularly if you’re living in the UK or Australia.
