In case you missed my io9 chat today (archive here) where I shared answers AND my UK/Aus cover of MADE FOR YOU, I thought I’d post it here.
MADE FOR YOU releases in Australia/NZ (as well as US/Canada where it comes out with the cicada cover) in Fall 2014. September here in the US & Canada. It releases in the UK & Ireland in Spring 2015.
I absolutely love that they kept the tagline (which I wrote), as well as using scarlet lilies (a symbol of desire in the language of flowers which the killer uses in the book) & of course, a drowning girl (directly from the plot). VERY VERY happy with the cover . . . I think it highlight aspects that the US cover (which I also love a lot!) does not.

We have to have stories or it will kill us. My long standing theory is that sentience is an evolutionary accident. It has huge evolutionary advantages to be aware of yourself, but it came with this enormous baggage that we weren’t ready for. We weren’t ready for death, so we invented religion. We weren’t ready for life, so we invented comedy. We just weren’t ready for it. But we are resilient, and we’ve evolved and found a way.
It’s impossible to think about death – to know you are going to die – so we’ve had to find a way to live with the impossible. And that’s where stories come from – they let you deal with the impossible, they let you live without having to spend every moment in waking terror."Stories of the Impossible - An interview with Patrick Ness
