Cool cover news...The Madman's Daughter cover will be going public on June 18! That's less than 3 weeks away! I first saw the cover about a month ago, and I loved it right away. It's got the perfect Gothic, creepy, romantic feel. The wonderful Young Adult Book Central blog is going to exclusively reveal the cover, and then I'll post it here shortly after.
Even cooler news is that my writing friend and fellow Friday the Thirteener, Ellen Oh, is revealing the cover of her debut book, Prophecy, on the same day! So we decided to do a double cover reveal, complete with ARC giveaways and other fun stuff. Prophecy sounds fantastic, and I've gotten a sneak glimpse of the cover, and you're going to love it too.
I also wanted to share that two of our other Friday the Thirteener friends have already revealed their covers. Here is Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger:
Seventeen-year-old Vane Weston is the only survivor of the category five tornado that killed his parents. Every night since the storm, a beautiful, dark-haired girl has swept through his dreams. She's the only clue to his past, and he clings to the hope that she's real.
Audra is real, but she's also a sylph. An air elemental. She walks on the wind, can translate its alluring songs, and can even twist it into a weapon. She's also a guardian--Vane's guardian--and has sworn an oath to protect him at all costs. Even if it means sacrificing her own life.
When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra must help Vane remember who he is. He has a power to claim--the secret language of the West Wind, which only he can understand. But unlocking his heritage will also unlock a memory Audra wishes could be erased. And as the storm bears down on them she starts to realize the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them, but the forbidden romance that's grown between them.
Set amongst the desert airstreams of Coachella Valley in California, and alive with wonderful wind-swept prose, LET THE SKY FALL is about two teenagers broken by their pasts, divided by their futures, and bound by love.
And also the cool cover for Dualed by Elsie Chapman:
The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.
Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.
