HC reveals dozen jackets for Noel

HarperCollins has unveiled 12 book jackets for Unrivaled by Alison Noel, one of the authors in its global publishing program.

The company revealed the the covers [below] at its stand at Frankfurt Book Fair today (Wednesday), and said the release of the book was an "unprecedented simultaneous global publication for a teen novel".

Unrivaled, the first in a "sexy suspense trilogy", will be published worldwide simultaneously in 16 languages on 10th May 2016.

Brian Murray, president and c.e.o. of HarperCollins, told The Bookseller earlier this year that it had ramped up its "unique global publishing programme", as it announced the acquisition of thriller writer Karin Slaughter in a four-book deal spanning world English rights and more than a dozen foreign languages.

Murray said HarperCollins was actively targeting other authors in commercial fiction, crime/thriller and YA.
