Ladies and gentlemen, we have a cover!

Well, it looks like I have a cover for my new book, How to Look Hot & Feel Amazing in Your 40s: The 21-Day Age-Defying Diet, Exercise & Everything Plan:

Cover Option 1

Option 1, by far and away, was the first choice of most of those who had an opinion both here on the blog and on Facebook. Though Option 3 with my tough girl look landed the second most votes, I’m going to use a faraway version of Option 2 with the jeans on the back cover. All of the photos (and more) will be used inside so they’re all winners in some way.

Amy Lazare’s comment that No. 3 “looked like it was all about exercise” leads me to believe that Option 1 is not only the most popular option but the right choice. The book isn’t all about exercise. Thank goodness for a good night’s sleep, a talented hair stylist, wrinkle creams and manicures! I need those to look hot, too! And my 21-Day Diet, Exercise & Everything Makeover Plan wouldn’t be complete without such advice. So the pic on the stairs is it.

To choose the winner of the free signed copy, I used a handy random number generator at random.org (only comments made here on the blog were considered (though I very much appreciated all the nice comments from my friends on Facebook)).

And the winner of the free book is …

Kris Rocky!
