Three Weeks Until Publication = Three Good Things

On Tuesday, there will be only three more weeks until HEREAFTER'S U.S. launch. (Notice a pattern in my posts? Not like I'm counting down or anything.) Since three is the Magic Number (no one start singing "Conjunction Junction"), I've thought of three things that are almost as awesome:

1. My U.K./Australia/New Zealand Cover (available on July 7th)

The front cover is identical to the U.S. cover, but the back of the jacket and spine differ slightly. No whirlpool on the back, and check out the ripple effect on the spine. Nice, right?

2. The HEREAFTER playlist is up on my website and unlike a lot of other playlists, this one actually works! But just in cases, here's the line-up for your at-home listening pleasure.

Bixby Canyon Bridge – Death Cab for Cutie
Semi-Automatic – The Boxer Rebellion
Ghost – Blue Foundation
A Strange Education – The Cinematics
Sweet Disposition – The Temper Trap
Wide Eyes – Local Natives
Too Afraid to Lose You – The Black Keys
Milk – Kings of Leon
Caught by the Light – The Boxer Rebellion
Blinding – Florence + the Machine
Memory Serves – Interpol
The Orchard – Sea Wolf
BONUS: If I Die Young – The Band Perry

Bonus points to anyone who can figure out which song represents which scene/character!

3. Best of all: my blog tour with the Teen Book Scene starts tomorrow! Top Ten Lists, Character Interviews, the works! I'm so excited!!!


  1. Awe, awesome playlist!!! :-) I can't wait to get my hands on a hardcopy of Hereafter! I've been telling my bookloving friends about your greatness :) 22 days!!!!

  2. so amazing tara. i feel so cool that i know you!!! sadly i have never heard of one of those songs. hahaha

  3. What a gorgeous cover can´t wait until the release, cuz I´ll be buying it for my first summer read, ^_^
