between two ends

I'm absolutely delighted with the new cover for Between Two Ends. We had a good long discussion (editor, and the team at Amulet) regarding the name for the book. A lot of thoughtful dialogue. More than anything, it gave me a deep respect for how seriously editors and book teams are willing to delve into a story so that it can be well named. Originally I named it, simply, Ends. But the title didn't sit well with me. Further dialogue with Amulet led to Between Two Ends, suggested by someone from the team. I tasted it for a while and eventually liked it! I tried it on my brother who is often my sounding board and he jumped at it. And so it stands: Between Two Ends. More on the book itself, later.
