Fade: Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, a twenty-something child-at-heart came home from a late afternoon staff meeting to discover her husband had slaved away over the stove, making her frozen pizza for dinner.She kissed him into oblivion for saving her the dreadful task of cooking, and sat down to watch her favorite television show while inhaling her pizza at record speeds. As she nomm'd and muttered at the television, Jensen Ackles' voice rang out from her phone, informing her that she sucked.

"An email," she thought to herself, and dusted off her hands to take a peek.

The sender of this email was one our heroine knew well: the Best Editor Ever.

Our heroine blinked at the subject of this most important email, and then hurried to open it.

After dancing in her seat while her husband and dogs looked at her in varying degrees of WTFness, she dashed to her computer, desperate to see the epic email in wide-screen format.

And this, dear readers, is what she saw:



Fade's official cover!

Our heroine squeed in excitement, which made her husband point and laugh, but she didn't care. Not one little bit. For she was too busy capering around, celebrating the coolest book cover ever! And then...

Ah, forget it! You know how the rest of the story goes. ;)

Fade's official cover is here! And in three weeks (three!), Fade will make its debut! Eeeeeeek!

I'm crazy excited to share my baby with all of you, and I could not be more proud of the fact that the last year of hard work will debut beneath such a beautiful cover. When I first started working on Fade, I envisioned a cover a whole lot like this. My friend Beth attempted to draw it for me, but I don't articulate vision well, so she was never quite sure what I meant. She did manage to figure out my rambling enough to draw me a great wolf though.

Needless to say, when I saw the mock-up for this, I was beyond thrilled. And getting the final today was no different.

I cannot wait to deliver this into your hands, my loves. And you can help me celebrate by leaving a comment on this post. One awesome commenter could possibly win a prize! (Read: Ayden loves giving stuff away, so you should comment because there will be a $10 Amazon giftcard awarded to one lucky winner!)

And don't forget, the Super Huge Announcement giveaway is still going on, too! Click here for your chance to win an autographed copy of Fade, an ebook copy, and a gray wolf adoption in your honor!

What do you think of the cover? Are you as excited as I am?!

xoxo,
A.K.M.
