Cover Juju & Moving Sale - er, Giveaway!
You guys! I just found out that Harlequin is going to reveal my new cover on Monday. GARDEN OF STONES is a new direction for me, a book that was shaped by many hands and nurtured, pummeled, coaxed and cursed into existence over the last year. I *love* this book. It love all my books, of course, but this one feels like a journey that we all undertook bravely, and now that the publication date is approaching, I'm getting pretty excited about it.
And the cover is nothing short of breathtaking. The art department at Mira has pulled off some real stunners in the past - covers which set trends you see being echoed everywhere. I always say that I have book cover juju, and it's true - I've never had a bad cover - but this one is nothing short of extraordinary.
I was trying to think of some fancy giveaway around the reveal, but I'm a little short of clever (and time - I'm getting ready to move!) these days, so let's do it this way. Any reviewers out there who've been interested in the AFTERTIME series, please drop me a line (and I don't mean just big fancy ones, either; I love people who love books, period, and I've been proud to be reviewed on some small but zesty blogs) and I'll see if I can get you a copy. Or if you've reviewed me and want a copy to give away - that works too. I don't want to move all these books if I don't have to. I also have a few copies of BANISHED and A BAD DAY FOR MERCY. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to give me an RT or something, I'd appreciate it.
Here are a few recent MIRA covers that I think reflect the talent of that art team:
speaking of contests, i never got back to you on the shoes - it was, in order, Margaret, Pam, me and Valerie. HinaBeena, if you see this, email me because I want to send you a book!
