Cover Reveal


The Cherokee believe when a person dies, their soul is reborn. Life is repeated. An endless cycle of lessons to be learned, love to be found, destiny to be fulfilled. For the past six months, in every flower, every bird, I’ve imagined my parents, relieved of their human forms. Now, after five months at the Skye View Wellness Center, it was summer. A time for parties and friends, but that’s the last thing I want to do. So when my best friend Erin convinces me to attend a bonfire at Eagle Point, I can’t handle the crowd full of sympathetic stares or drunken class clowns who would use my tragedy as a way into my heart – or my pants. The solitude of the woods offers an escape, until I stumble upon a boy, unconscious and bleeding, his pockets stuffed not with identification but with poetry illustrating the beauty of dying. I’ve seen enough death. I will not leave this boy’s side. Even after he wakes, when the only thing he can remember are visions of events that haven’t happened yet…

 Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

  19. First of all, how on earth did I miss this post? I'm always stalking what you get in your mailbox, duh!

    Second: OOH my GOD!!! You already know how I feel about Shine but it looks precious...I think I cried a little. :( And really? In the first 15 pgs. you were tearing up?! So I'm going to need tissues if I ever get the chance to read it huh? Duly noted.

    Third: How was Masque of the Read Death? I wanna read it so badly. The cover is just gorgeous.

    Fifth: Callum and Harper looks so pretty! I have a thing with books in real life, I could stare at them for sport! This is why I love vlogs...since I can't stare at them at the bookstore. Blah! Anyway...sounds good too, I just added to my list ;)

    P.S: How did you like my essay? I mean....comment? Pretty cool huh??? (Okay, sorry I'm in funny mood right now :P)

  20. Everyone is so excited for Shine, and I still need to read Shade! I need to pick up a copy and read it ASAP. My husband always looks at me like I am crazy, when I come back from the mailbox and get excited about books. He is always "Its just a book" to which a reply with an eyeroll and a you wouldn't understand. Whisper looks really good, I think I will have to check it out! I hope you enjoy all your new books!
