APRIL NEWSLETTER CONTEST—Puzzle























I’m always fascinated by the progression from sketch to final cover, and I thought you might be, too. The seventh jpeg is the finished art, printed and ready to be wrapped around the book.
.
This time, I asked Bantam Dell to let me conceal a clue on the cover, and the art department did a fantastic job accommodating my request. On the normal-size cover, in the bookstore, it’s not so easy to spot. I’m making it a little easier by giving you a high res shot of it.
.
Your mission: Find and decipher it. Tell me what I hid, and what it means.
.
The first person to figure it out and email Karen@karenmoning.com wins the Juicy key ring.
.
You MUST put the words “JUICY CONTEST” in the subject line so we can separate entries from other email.
.
Good luck!
