It's taken us a long time to all come to agreement on a final cover for the book, but it's finally done, and all nice and shiny!

So cool and nice ! Makes you impatient to read the book. [Smile]

I love the colors and the design and oh.. the pics. They look just like totally normal people. We don't see that as often nowadays. [Smile]

It took a LONG time to get it to that point (you really have no idea how tough it is to lobby for some real diversity, and how hard it is to find it in stock photos -- my only complaint is that we couldn't find at least one of those photos that was a little less obvious in terms of gender, b ut I'm at least really thrilled we have some deiversity in terms of race, size and general appearance, and that everyone looks friendly and natural).

But glad it's all done!

Ooh, lovely! I adore the look on the subject's face in the bottom-most picture. It's so... I don't know, cute? fun? intriguing? playful? Something along those lines.

The colors are absolutely fantastic and fresh. It makes me want to pop over to amazon.com and preorder a billion more copies right now to, I don't know, distribute in the streets or something. :D But I'll have to make do with just the one I've already ordered. In any case, I'm super excited to get my copy.

Aaah! I just hit refresh on the front page and saw the cover for the first time. Either I've been blind, or you've only just put it there. Anyway, I saw it and started yelling "The cover! The cover!" and got really wierd looks from everyone else in the room.

It looks absolutely awesome! Fresh and friendly and fun. Just makes me want to pick up a copy and get reading.

Aw, shucks! It's so cool to have everyone (not just me!) so excited about this.

We've also gotten some really nice advance praise, too, from prople I seriously admire and respect, some of which you can peek at at the banner which is now floating around the site, here:

P.S. You're not blind: just added the cover to the front page today. [Smile]

I'm thoroughly excited, and about to pre-order a copy now!

Hopefully having this information in print will help me correct my roommate's MISinformation more easily. She believes everything her mother (who is a nurse and should know better!!) tells her, no matter how inaccurate it may be. I've tried directing her here, but she won't stray from Mommy's advice or the Planned Parenthood website (which is not intended to answer questions like Scarleteen, and is rather incomplete)..

Again, thank you so much -- I've become the go-to girl for sex ed information on campus.

It's on the amazon uk too [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

http://www.amazon.co.uk/S-E-X-Spelling-Need-About-Sexuality/dp/1600940102/ref=wl_it_dp/026-6632485-9443647?ie=UTF8&coliid=I2O9LB5FEQEH7M&colid=3QDZ61C7FZEQ3

The date on that site says 31st of august, but I'm not sure if that's necessarily true because it hasn't been updated in a long time.

It will be available though... indeed it will [Big Grin] .

Avalon is a big publisher, so by all means, this will be able to be found internationally.

And if ordering online isn't an option, all you have to do is ask your local bookstore to order it for you, and the information you need give them is just that you want S.E.X., by Heather Corinna, published by Marlowe & Company (the imprint of Avalon it's under).

When I searched for the book at Barnes and Noble it cam up as "Kiss and Tell" as the title. Was this the origanal title or just a error in thier system? Just curious

I believe that was a former title for the book; however, it's got the right cover and everything, so I'd assume it's just needing to be updated! [Smile]

Yep. (Sigh! I loved that title and we tried SO hard to sell it to the publisher, but alas.)

Basically, I've only authored one solo book at this point. So, if you put my name into bookstore search engines, that will be the only book with me in it that is credited to ONLY me. Sometimes online booksellers are slow in updating info, but if you find a YA sex guide authored by me, you can rest assured it's this book.

I like the present title a lot!

"S.E.X."

The word just grabs my attention. and then the "spelling out everything you need to know..." is witty witty witty.

Don't get me wrong: I like the new title, too (though the subtitle has changed: it's the one on the cover, which both my editor and myself vastly preferred to "spelling...."). [Smile]

But I have a nostalgic attachment to the old.
