Next spring, the UK company Transworld will be publishing Kaboom. I'm stoked, obviously, and am looking forward to working with them as we prepare to share the book with our friends across the pond.
With Transworld's blessing, here's an early version of the cover we plan to use. I like it a lot. I liked Da Capo's cover a lot as well, but for different reasons; Da Capo's version captured the Suck and team elements of the Iraq experience. Jules Crittenden of The Boston Herald agrees, though he apparently doesn't like the book all that much now that he's cracked it, so don't send too much traffic his way. (He hasn't even gotten to the part where I vote for President Obama from Iraq. Judging by the tone of some of his political posts, The Herald may be short one editor after he reads that section).
Anyways, I believe the Transworld cover will prove equally well received. There's a distinct iconic flavor here that I hope the British people respond to, not to mention that fantastic EW quote that'll be sure to grace any and all Kaboom editions.
What does the vaunted and illustrious Interwebz think?
