Caitlin revealed!

On top is the cover for my next novel, Wake, coming in April 2009 from Ace Science Fiction and Penguin Canada. The girl depicted is Caitlin Decter, the novel's protagonist.

On the bottom is a picture of my wife, Carolyn Clink, when she was in Grade 6.

I think the resemblance is uncanny. :) And, no, cover designer Rita Frangie had never seen this, or any, photo of Carolyn when she created the book's cover image.

I blame the Large Hadron Collider. :-)

It's not just this book -- there are others with similar spooky likenesses. One of the Tesseract Books titles, by Elisabeth Vonarburg, had a cover done by Robert Woodbury using a photo of his own daughter. Elisabeth contacted me as soon as she saw it, wondering where Robert had got a photo from her own childhood.
