So over the past several months, THE DUFF has made it's debut in a few different countries. And I thought it might be fun to share some covers with you!  So here's what THE DUFF is like abroad.
GERMANY [image error]
I just found this one when I stumbled across it the other day. Sexy times!  Of the foreign covers, it's probably my favorite.  And the title translates to "Because Of Love." I'm not sure exactly how that relates to the story, but I wish I could read German to get a better idea! It's out January 2013, I believe.

CROATIA
The Croatian cover was the first I saw. The novel released there in June, 2012 (the first foreign edition!) and the cover is just so different from the ones we see in the US! Can't help but love it.  "KRPA" actually means "Patch" in Croatian. But the K, R, and P form an acronym that comes out to "Big Ugly Friend."  Sorry, Croatians! "Patch" is now synonymous with "Big Ugly Friend" I guess.

TAIWAN/Complex Chinese
Too cute, right? I actually have a few of these on my bookshelf.  I wish I could translate some of the cover, but I have no Chinese skillz.  Either way, this is freaking adorable.

The DUFF has also been released in the UK, and while the overall jacket is different (and AWESOME) the cover is basically the same, so I won't share it here. But how cool is this? People are reading my book in other countries! In other languages!  It BLOWS MY MIND, Y'ALL!!!!
What do you think of the foreign covers? Which is your favorite? Also, what are some of your favorite foreign covers of other books? I want to know!

Christina Wilder I'm liking the Germany one. Although I'm a sucker for covers that use models well, as in not having them stare out at the reader. :D

Cathy I love them all, but I have to agree with Christina the Germany one is my favorite.

Eileen Wow, congrats on going international - I think the Germany cover is cool...nice shadow affect..

Cassandra Congratulations! I wish you lots of success with the foreign editions! I like the German cover best. It looks sexy and intimate and I like that you get a glimpse of their faces but can't see them completely. But I might be prejudiced because I'm from Germany. ;-)
The title by the way doesn't mean "Because Of Love" though it's rather difficult to translate. "Von wegen" means "as if" like when you say "As if you have a clue". So it's more like "As If (This Is) Love" ... well, kinda, sorta... and I think that fits the book quite well. But hey, you readers from Germany, feel free to correct me or add to my explanation!
