I like illustrations and silhouettes. By the way, I added your books to my pinterest board. I just wanted to write stories about characters but not make any sort of statement about their race.

Armentrout Goodreads Author 4. Becca Fitzpatrick Goodreads Author. Brian Meeks. People are very eager to demand more minorities on covers.
Melanie Nilles Goodreads Author. If books with covers models of color sold well, publishers would do them more often. Bridge of Snow Oboks Winner's Trilogy, 0. Marie Lu Goodreads Author.Wow, very insightful. One is the perception that every book with a kid anc color on the cover is about either racism or some other stereotypical issue gangs, immigration etc. This is a giant market. I had no idea that this was happening.
That is how you will change this whitewashing boo,s. When I draw a character, I reference real people from photos a tip of a nose there… those eyes there. Yet all universal dilemmas - and this is certainly one - could be dismissed as trite. This has been going on for decades - probably centuries - and seems to show no signs of letting up.
But I have made my displeasure known. They have fixed the Kane Chronicles covers so Carter is no longer whitewashed. This art will be featured on any future reprints. The news was welcomed by campaigners for diversity at We Need Diverse Books. This should never have happened and the Boekerij editors regret it. In , the author Justine Larbalestier battled her American publisher to have the jacket of her novel Liar accurately reflect its black protagonist, after early copies featured a white girl. And very, very, very gradually publishers may be beginning to lose their blind fear of putting a non-white face on the cover of a book.

Wendy Darling. Lauren Kate Goodreads Author. I know what a small market is. The only content we will consider removing is spam, or extremely offensive content eg.
Most of the time, I love young adult literature and am proud to be a YA librarian. If a YA book features a white, female protagonist and this accounts for a not insignificant portion of YA released each year , it seems inevitable that the book cover will display an idealized and airbrushed masterpiece of her on the cover. And when a YA book actually does have a protagonist of color, too often one of three things seems to happen:. These forms of racism on the part of publishers are unacceptable. And the fact that it is so rampant within the young adult publishing industry seems particularly despicable.
I feel like book covers are mainly just stock art with some minor alterations anymore which is probably contributing to the problem!

Apparently this year, a lot of us chose a silhouette as a solution. However one thing I wish would happen is that if authors want their characters to be another race I wish they would just say it instead of hinting at it in eye color and skin color.
We will not remove any content for bad language alone, or for being critical of a book. Gracie Ray Goodreads Author. I always get an impression on what the character should look like, it helps paint the picture of bopks story for me! The cover in paperback is even clearer.
