I was standing when I opened it. I don't know how it happened, but while I took in the spectacular, thrilling image of my cover, I somehow backed a good fifteen feet to the nearest set of bleachers and plopped down on it, horse show vanishing into thin air. My cover. MY cover. Beautiful and spectacular and like nothing I could've imagined. And the title "Moonlit" - perfect and intriguing. I've been cherishing them since Saturday, basking in the glow of the homestretch. And now, I'm ready to send them into the world. You're the reason I did this anyhow :)
First, the release date.... April 23rd, 2013. (Suddenly April feels very, very close.)
Title, once again, because I love it... Moonlit
And, the cover. It might be the most gorgeous cover I've ever seen on a book. I know I'm partial, but the cover artists at WiDo publishing did a fantastic job. What do you think?
Gorgeous, right?? So what's this cover all about, anyway? Here's the summary:
Eighteen-year-old Tanzy Hightower knows horses, has grown up with them on Wildwood Farm. She also knows not to venture beyond the trees that line the pasture. Things happen out there that can’t be explained. Or undone. Worse, no one but she and the horses can see what lurks in the shadows of the woods.
When a moonlit ride turns into a terrifying chase, Tanzy is left to question everything, from the freak accident that killed her father to the very blood in her veins. Broken and confused, she turns to Lucas, a scarred, beautiful stranger, and Vanessa, a charming new friend who has everything Tanzy doesn’t.
But why do they seem to know more about her than she knows herself?
I am so excited to share this story with all of you. Thank you so much for being a part of this journey. I'm honored to have an amazing network of writers who want to support this book of mine, and are participating in a cover reveal blog tour. I will provide a full schedule of tour dates as soon as they are finalized. The tour will run through the month of February. A follow-up tour with interviews and giveaways will begin April 1st.
