NOT IN THE SCRIPT by Amy Finnegan Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Posted by on March 20, 2014

NOT IN THE SCRIPT, Amy Finnegan’s debut, sounds fun, and if the cover is any indication, it will be fun. We’re thrilled to reveal the cover for Amy’s debut, releasing this fall (October 7th, to be exact) from Bloomsbury’s If Only YA imprint! First, here’s the synopsis, then check out the cover and let us know what you think!

Millions of people witnessed Emma Taylor’s first kiss—a kiss that needed twelve takes and four camera angles to get right. After spending nearly all of her teen years performing on cue, Emma can’t help but wonder if any part of her life is real anymore . . . particularly her relationships. But her new costar, Jake Elliott, couldn’t care less about how many scenes he has to fake his way through; he needs the money. Toss in a reckless heartthrob, desperate for a comeback, and a resident diva who may or may not be as evil as she seems, and the production of Coyote Hills heats up in unexpected—and romantic—ways. Along with offering front row seats to the real life drama that often unfolds within the entertainment industry, NOT IN THE SCRIPT is a story about two not-so-typical teens who are searching for themselves, and just happen to find each other.

Amy Finnegan writes her own stories because she enjoys falling in love over and over again, and thinks everyone deserves a happy ending. She likes to travel the world—usually to locations where her favorite books take place—and owes her unquenchable thirst for reading to Jane Austen and J.K. Rowling. Her debut novel, NOT IN THE SCRIPT, came about after hearing several years of behind-the-scenes stories from her industry veteran brother. She’s also been lucky enough to visit dozens of film sets and sit in on major productions such as Parks and Recreation and Parenthood. You can follow Amy on Twitter @ajfinnegan, or Facebook (Amy Finnegan, Author).

And now for the cover! What do you think?

  1. Amy, I am so happy for you & so proud of you! The cover looks great! Can’t wait to read the final version of Not in the Script!

  2. I’ve known Amy for years and have thoroughly enjoyed her work in other forms, which makes me all the more anxious to read this book.

    As for the cover itself, it’s light, bright, and the models are lovely.

  3. This book looks and sounds so cute! I love to read books like this when I’m in a reading slump, they usually pull me right out of it and get me back on track! Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. I think the cover looks great! I like how the background is drawn in, that it’s fake, because the concept has to do with faking it when they’re acting. I like how they’re not drawn because they’re real, but they’re in this fake world and that is shown by the background.

  5. The cover looks good. As a designer I would say its a little too “stock” for my tastes but thats totally my opinion
