Next week we'll take a highly scientific look at 2010's YA covers and see if the darkness really is too visible. Because as Laurel Snyder points out, "dark" can mean many things, and I'm a fan of being literal to the point of sarcasm.

  12. OMG MUST USE CAPITAL LETTERS TO EXPRESS HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS.

    Can I post this on TCG (with link love?)? Also I'm looking forward to your post about how YA covers that are complementary in the color wheel somehow, when paired up, have the ability to burst into sparkles and magic.

    Meredith: It would have taken me a lot less time, but the image got so big it kept crashing my computer. And by then it was a BATTLE and I was not about to LOSE. So it took me a few days. :)

Commenting is good karma. And it makes your hair shiny.

(My own karma is better on Twitter-- I read all of these, but if you have a question, you might try me there!)
