Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you had a fantastic July 4th Holiday. Ours was kind of quiet since we'd just returned from a trip to Dallas to visit Rudy's family. It was actually easier than I thought. This was our first visit down there since he passed away. We had a really good time seeing everyone and my new baby nephew. And then we came back and Anna Li passed her driver's test and got her license. But the tester was mean. It took us a while to get excited that she passed. But she's been driving a few days and admits it's very convenient to drive yourself and it's giving me more time to myself. Yay!
I have two cover reveals to share.
First here's the cover for Stina Lindenblatt's YA contemporary TELL ME WHEN that releases September 1, 2014. Here's a short blurb: Amber Scott thought her screaming nightmares would end now that her stalker is locked up and awaiting trial. But they return when her slam-dunk case starts to fall apart. Explicit letters she allegedly wrote surface, suggesting she was the mastermind behind her assault, a willing victim. Amber has to find the strength to step into the spotlight and bring awareness to victims' rights before she's convicted in the court of public opinion. And she's really not sure what's worse—that her kidnapper could walk free, or that the seemingly endless attention and speculation will drive her boyfriend Marcus away permanently…
And here's a few links:
Alexia manipulated time to save the man of her dreams, and lost her best friend to red-eyed wraiths. Still grieving, she struggles to reconcile her loss with what was gained: her impending marriage. But when her wedding is destroyed by the Soulless—who then steal the only protection her people have—she's forced to unleash her true power. And risk losing everything.
Here's a few blurbs:
