City Secrets and Elite Ambition cover reveal

The rumors in the previous post ARE true! The covers were posted on the Simon & Schuster Website. As soon as I get the files, I'll post the large version so you guys can see them up close. I'm so excited to see Paige on the cover of CITY SECRETS.

And on ELITE AMBITION, we've got the new mystery girl and Callie. I'll post the full size covers as soon as I get them--promise! :)

Crave for Canterwood Crest said...

Hey!
Is Sasha on the the cover w/ Paige?
Who is the *mystery girl*?

Joannah said...

eek thats so cool! I was really excited whnen I saw that the covers were on. They're so cool! I can't wait to see them bigger!! :0) One of the books comes out two days before my bday. Thats cool!! July 8 is my bday.

Joannah said...

now that I look at it, they ARE a little cheesier than the other ones. I hate to admit it. :0( But they are still pretty cool. Just not as good as the other ones. And on the one with Paige, the other girls pants are WAY too tight!!! How does she move? Did she spray paint them on. Nothing against you Jess at all. I'm just against uber tight pants.

Joannah said...

I can't wait to read who the mystery girl is. I just ordered #s 3 and 4 so they should be coming soon. So I'll only have to get 3 more books to catch up. :0).
And what a great present City Secrets would be for my birthday ;0) lol. With that cute cover!! :0) Seriously it IS cute, just not as good as the other ones. The other ones are really good!

Anonymous said...

Yeah, I am going to admit it now. Don't think I'm being mean Jess, I'm not! :0( I just have to admit that it does look kinda fake and photoshopped. . . It looks sorta barbieish if you you know what I mean.

:0( sorry!!!

DD said...

the pants are riding jods there supposed to be tight.

JumperGirl said...

There cool. Sort of

Jill/teameric said...

I KNOW WHO THE MYSTERY GIRL IS REMEBER IN THE FIRST BOOK LAUREN THATS WHO IT IS!

DD said...

how do you know? did jess tell you. What page is she mentioned on. And if she is mentioned in the first i don't think she would be the mystery character.

Katie (was Katie N.) said...

OMG jess you got me soooo excited. btw i didnt think the covers were cheesy- i thought they are soo cool. and did you know people judge by the covers? they sometimes wont even give it a try. oh and my guy friend was like "that girl on the cover is hot" and i was cracking up!

Anonymous said...

In Take the Reins it says Lauren has long brown hair. Is the mystery girl's hair brown or black?

Anonymous said...

LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!

Hannah said...

omg they're amazing i love them!!! can't wait to find out who mystery girl is!!!!!!!!!!

Hannah said...

jodhpurs are supposed to be tighter. they're riding pants. it's easier to wear them than regular pants.

Hannah said...

i like these covers a lot actually. they dont look fake imo, and i really like them. it makes it seem horseier. but i liked the other ones too. i like them all!! lol

DJones said...

I like them! I'm not tryin to be mean and I know this isn't your fault Jess, but the grass does look a little too green and they kind of do look photo shopped and not as sophisticated as the others. They are pretty though, I just don't like them as much as the others. But I know they'll both be awesome books and they'll probably look better up close when you get the files. :) :) :)

Paige said...

Cool!! The covers are cute, although they are a little too touched up. The fence on Elite Ambition was originally just brown wood (you can tell from some pics Jess posted from the photo shoot) and in my opinion, they shouldn't have added the black fence. The grass is also a little too green and 'perfect' for grass. Not trying to be mean or anything, but this isn't the sophisticated cover I was expecting. But still, can't wait to see the back of these covers AND the back of Home Sweet Drama!

Sara S said...

Ok, so while everyone else doesnt like the covers, I LOVE them! i think they look awesome!and a mystery girl? at first when my bff saw it and told me at school, it thought it was Suichin(paige and sasha's floor mate) but now that i see it, i know its not because she's not a rider. and i cant wait for full size covers!and i am pretty shure its not lauren.... but wait i remember that she had a gray welsh pony...so maybe it is!
anyway, luv the covers and i am DYING b/c my RR hasnt come yet!

Anonymous said...

OMG I LOVE THEM SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!! CANT WAIT TO READ THEM!!!!

Anonymous said...

the new covers are not that great city secrets looks okay but EA looks totally fake. i hate how the horses ears are never up they look asleep!
but RR was amazing best book yet..

Anonymous said...

The grass and stone in the Elite Ambition civer look SOOOO fake!!!!! I had pretty high standards for the covers set after seeing the 8 amazing covers of the first 8 books of the CC series, but i'm sorry, these were not a hit. City Secrets looks better, but the whole backround/foreground thing was so not working for me. Everything was swallowed up in insanely perfect green grass!!! I also would not have done black fences in the Elite Ambition cover. I guess I just expected more :(

Anonymous said...

They are so PRETTY! I love them, great job!!!
Also, I still haven't gotten RR..... ?

Thoroughbredstar said...

OMG!! I love the covers. OOOOhhhh new mystery girl I can't wait. I LOVE THEM SOOO MUCH AMAZING!!

Adina said...

Wow, I can't wait to read them. My teacher and I made a pact that if I got an A in her class, she would buy me a book. Once I do that, I'll get Rival Revenge. I can't wait to read that, that's why I didn't want to read the spoilers. Can't wait to see who the mystery girl is. :D

Anonymous said...

hmmm.. you guys might be right.. it might be lauren.. but why would she come in the middle of the year? its seems kinda silly.. well, the covers do look kinda fake, but there cute at the same time. mystery girl..not so much. lol! but i bet there gonna be AMAZING!!!!

Anonymous said...

ummm.. ya, they actually do look kinda fake. sort of as if u just placed them in a background pic.

Thoroughbredstar said...

Mystery girl's horse looks like Jellybean from the new Saddle Clubs.
I like how the covers are, it seems fancy and Canterwood Cresty. It doesn't seem fake to me. Sasha does say "Manicured lawns" in the books.

Claire said...

i love them! hey jess- could you show us the back of the books?? i hope so!!!!

Anonymous said...

i LOVE the new covers but sadly, i do have to agree that they look a bit too photoshopped. :( they just look a tiny bit too perfect and not as sophisticated as the other ones, but overall, i still LOVE them!!!

Anonymous said...

I thought there were 12 books. Jess only put 1-10 on her blog. Oh well. I know the names to the 11th bk, but what is the 12th?

Anonymous said...

Jess Im sorry these book covers look so stupid i liked your other books but now i am not going to read them any more if you dont fix the covers

Joannah said...

Um, I've seen other pants like that and they were never THAT tight. Look at the second book. Those pants are pretty decent. (not being mean just defending myself) :0)

Anonymous said...

anonymous before me. No offense, but that is lame!! Why would you judge a book by its cover? That makes no sense. Oh that sounds perfectly "intelligent" *oh! I'm not gonna read them anymore cuz I don't like the covers* RIGHT. Good luck with that. ;0 /

Anonymous said...

Yeah ok guys can we stop with the OMG these covers are so fake and cheesy crud please. If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all...cause no one wants to hear it. O yea and by the way...the pants are supposed to be tight their ,like DD, said jods so..... I like the covers....although I don't know if I will ever be able to make the connection between that Paige and my Paige even though I do think she is pretty. Sasha and Callie look very pretty. The mystery girl is mysterious although I think your right I think the mystery girl might be Lauren. Again the covers I think are pretty and cute.

Anonymous said...

I LOOOOOVE THEM! I have no idea why everyone is being so harsh! I think they look great!

Anonymous said...

I am soo disappointed in some of you guys...quit dissing on the covers would ya it's so stupid. And OMG anonymous are you kiddddding me...oh I'm not gonna read these books if the covers aren't absolutley completley perfect...come on...don't be a jerk. Fine don't read them no one cares...you won't be hurting anyone but yourself...I'm pretty sure Jess won't care she has plenty of fans to help cushion the blow of you leaving mrs. priss...and on top of that she would probably be happier without all these negative bloggers anyways so be my guest and don't read the books

Anonymous said...

Ya! I totally agree with the last Anonymous! If you don't want to read the books, then fine, but go post somewhere else, please.

Anonymous said...

I LOOOOVE the covers, Jess!

Tatiana said...

Alright, we all KNOW these covers look sort f fake and they are a *little* bit cheesy. Everyone has to admit that. And anons, you're the people who should go post somewhere else and go bother other people, cause you're not making things any better if you are bashing other people. Everyone has the right to voice their opinion, and if you happen to disagree with that, you should just keep your opinion to yourself and deal. THEY ARE NOT 'NEGATIVE BLOGGERS' BECAUSE THEY DO NOT LIKE THE COVERS. So chill!! and BTW, you're being the negative blogger if you call people names and bashing other people's opinions. I mean, really? 'Miss Priss'? could you come up with a lamer insult? My point is- just stop with the dissing!!! And Jess has NOTHING to do with the covers, AND she can't change them. Jess posted these covers because she WANTED to hear other people's opinions. You can't argue with that.

Jessica Burkhart said...

Hey, girlies--let's keep it cool on the comments, okay? I really don't want to have to moderate.

Jessica Burkhart said...

PS--Everyone's totally entitled to her option, but bashing each other isn't cool. Okay? :)

Sara S said...

TBstar ir right, canterwood is suppossed to look that way. and since everyone is arguing this isnt fun. com on guys, lets stop fighting and talk about something else.(ok i know i know i sound like my hippie religion teacher giving a lessonbut i dont like fighting, who does?) like, who's the mystery girl. i think its lauren, for reasons i said in my earlier post and to whoever asked why would lauren come in the middle of the year, if you remember the first book, it said that lauren would have started cc in 6th grade, but she just wasnt ready for the change. what do y'all think?

Sara S said...

o and jess, i was looking at your old blog and saw that you read the cat who... series and i am reading that series right now! is there a special one that you thought was the best?

Joannah said...

Haha, yeah I agree. We don't need to have all this fighting. Sorry Jess. I'm sure its awful reading some of these comments. You were so excited to see the covers and then people go and make fun of them. I hope I didn't seem like I was totally saying they were awful. They're not! They're just not as good as they could be and the previous ones. Stop the fighting and stop saying the covers are awful. They're really not that bad. :0)

And ok, enough with everyone telling me about the pants. I just think that girl shouldn't be wearing those pants. Oh, i'm sorry PAINTS. lol, just joking girlies! :0)

Anonymous said...

Jess!
If you replied to my email, I wouldn't know. 'Cause it wont let me get on it right now....
So if you could email me on the barkingpaw one that would be great. Thanks!

Thanks,

Anonymous said...

Hmmm.... I wonder who the mystery girl is... Any ideas? I guess it could be Lauren...

Crave for Canterwood Crest said...

You guys should not not read the books if u dont like the cover. Never judge a book by its cover!

Anonymous said...

The mystery girl who has red hair is Pagie.

Corbyn said...

I really do like the covers! I think they look just as good as the other ones. It's probably the size you see on your computer or Iphone. Im sure the bigger ones will look AWSOME!

Michelle said...

Wow, anons, talk about judging a book by it's cover. Everyone really needs 2 chillax

Anonymous said...

Jessica-I love Canterwood Crest books! I also really like the new covers and titles-they are so intriguing! Will you say anything about the mystery character? Thanks! Good luck with City Secrets! P.S. I can't wait to get Rival Revenge!

Holly said...

This is just something quick but...are comments being moderated now? Because I'm pretty sure that when I tried to post something on the LWL thread, it said I had to wait for "blog owner approval" before the comment showed up.

Holly said...

Never mind about my last post! It's probably just that thread where I got that reaction! Sorry!

Anonymous said...

umm.. anon, its not like its up to u 2 b dissapointed in us. ure just another reader. jees, ok- but not u!

Anonymous said...

I can't wait to get a copy of RR!!!!! I think the covers are amazing! Can you give us any hints about the "Mystery Girl", Jess?

Ellie said...

The covers are cool.....a little fake looking or not as sophisticated as Anon said but i still like them a lot and yeah! who is the "mystery girl" ? hehe, please Jess give a hint on who she is. cant wait to see the covers up close :D.

Holly said...

I love the covers! They *are* kind of fake, but I love them anyway. P.S. I'm glad we can all stop fighting over our opinions. And to Anonymous who said they wouldn't read the books if the covers were not perfect, I think that's kind of unfair to the author. I mean, Jessica has control over writing great books, not making great covers! And if you *don't* read every book with a less-than-perfect cover, you might miss out on some awesome books.

Thoroughbredstar said...

PEOPLES!!! Stop fighting!! They're book covers. my opinion is, I like them. Everyone has their own opinion it is no one's business to judge/bash/or be rude about it. Some people like them others don't. no need to be rude or mean. This blog was made for people to voice comments and opinions. No one wants comments moderated, right? Canterwood Crest is fancy and perfect why wouldn't the covers be??

Ellie said...

Hey Jess, I was just wondering if maybe all the Canterwood girls could be on the last book cover? if it would even work, and if you havent already done a photo shoot for the last book, i just thought that it would be cool, just an idea. :0)

Holly said...

Ellie-I don't know what Jessica thinks, but I love that idea! It could be a really dramatic cover and super fun! But..I'm pretty sure they already shot the cover for CC #12.

Holly said...

I love seeing the covers but soon I will be sad because..NOW THERE ARE ONLY TWO COVERS AND A TITLE LEFT TO REVEAL! It's okay, I just love the excitement of seeing these little sneak peeks, so when there are no sneak peeks left I will be a teeny bit disappointed. Really, I guess I just don't want the Canterwood books to end! :)

Holly said...

Ellie-Jess said on a different thread that the CC #12 cover has been shot. Oh well. u had a really good idea though!

Anonymous said...

I really hope that Jess does more books...I mean twelve is a big series but I read the Thourghbred series and it had 72 books so nothing is impossible...that is if you can come up with 72 ideas...

horsegal14 said...

hey i just wanted to say that i LOVE the covers and yeah-dnt judge book by its cover. jess' books have been amazing so far and i can guess that these will be just as great. and about the mystery girl- who is lauren again? mind bank ;)

Anonymous said...

Hey Jess! I think it would be really cool to have some guys on the cover. Though if you have already shot all the cover its okay. Paige on the cover of city secrets and elite ambition is really cool too! And i can't wait to see who mystery girl is!

Corbyn said...

I found a story in Young Rider that Jess wrote. I forget what is was called but it was good. It was in the July/August issue.

Ellie said...

oh, thanks Holly, but we never know maybe they all are on the last book, and same here! i dont want the CC books to end! but yeah with all of them on the last book cover i just thought it would kinda be like a last hooray for the books. :0)

Anonymous said...

Was it the July/August issue of last year or before that cause I think I have two July/August issues so far......

Anonymous said...

Jess, I think that you should have a place where we can read an excerpt from HSD on the website because I search around every couple of days trying to find an excerpt but I come to this site everyday and it would be easy to find. Shoot!!! I was going to say something else but....I forgot. I HATE when that happens.

Anonymous said...

Okay, now I know I answered my own question Jasmine left...good or bad hmmmmm......but anyways it says it on the back of HSD.

Claire banse said...

Hey I love the covers!!!!! They are not cheesey wat so ever! They rock! and I love the boooks please tell us who the mystery girl is I wanta know!!!!!

Sasha Silver said...

Hey jess i LOVE the covers ive gotten every book the day it comes out and i just finesed Rival Reveng it was AMAZING!! fyi to all the people who say the "pants" are too tight there breeches they'r used for riding and are supposed to fit like that! anyway the covers rock and i dont think the grass looks fake!!

Sassy Silver said...

Hey Jess I LOVE the covers!!! Oh and FYI to the people who say the "pants" are too tight they'r breeches they'r used for riding and are SUPPOSED to fit like that! anyway i love the the covers! You rock Jess!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Kathleen said...

I love the covers! I think that they are just as fantaboulous as every other cover of every other Canterwood Crest book :)
Well, except I wouldn't know if they compare to Triple Fault, because I lost my copy at my house :-/ I hope I find it, because when a new Canterwood Crest book comes out, I reread all of them, and I can't reread all of them if I don't have Triple Fault!
But, well, back to the covers - I think they're spectacular. Great job, cover designers and Jessica!

Sabrina said...

OMG!!! I think that the mystery girl is Blake!!! And it is already out!!!! I AM SOOOOO EXCITED!

Anonymous said...

please make more than 12 books. I love them and can't stop reading them and it's my favorite book! Please do not stop writing with that magic mind of yours! :D
