Amanda Knox’s upcoming memoir has a title, a cover design, and a new publication date.

HarperCollins announced Wednesday that the book is titled “Waiting to be Heard.” It will come out April 30, two months later than originally scheduled. The date was changed out of deference to the court in Italy that scheduled a March 25 hearing for the prosecution’s appeal of the former exchange student’s acquittal in the 2007 murder of her British roommate.

Knox, now 25, returned to her native Seattle, Wash., in 2011 after spending four years in a Perugia, Italy jail. Her ordeal made international headlines and her book deal, announced in February, was reportedly worth $4 million.

The cover features a close-up of an intense, unsmiling Knox. The picture was taken earlier this year.

Since her return Knox hasn’t granted any interviews but it’s certainly not the first we’ve seen of her.

Photos: Amanda Knox’s journey home to Seattle

British tabloids, who famously nick-named Knox “Foxy Knoxy,” made their way to Seattle to snap photos of her return home at Sea-Tac Airport. They didn’t let up either, – taking paparazzo photos wherever Knox went, whether it was in Seattle’s Westlake Park, or walking up a road after picking up toothpaste, not far from her parents’ West Seattle home.

Knox did decline an interview with Barbara Walters, who named her one of the most fascinating people of 2011.

Knox’s lack of TV appearances in the U.S. didn’t stop her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito from appearing on the premiere of “Katie” this fall.
