Sooooo...I've been pretty damn busy lately and here's why: My next book - IF I FALL - comes out in just a couple of weeks.
*cue the pulling of hair and consumption of caffeine*
The book is now in editing and that's sort of a relief.
And then yesterday, I got this:
Um, yeah. That...is a COVER. A cover that I am absolutely thrilled about. Beyond what I originally imagined. But that's what happens when you hire a genius like Regina Wamba to design your book cover.
What's the story about, you ask? (Even if you didn't, just play along)
Meg Calloway is at the edge.
Reeling from her parents' sudden divorce, fifteen-year old Meg has never felt more alone. Her father is about to marry a woman she can't stand and her mother's only companion is an endless supply of alcohol. When Aidan Westwood, an older boy at school, shows interest in her, she grabs on and doesn't let go, thinking he's exactly what she needs to help stem her loneliness and despair. She quickly learns that Aidan lives a darker, more dangerous life than she does and the more isolated she feels from her family, the more willing she is to step into Aidan's world.
As Meg drifts further from her friends, she tries to find comfort with a boy who is opening her eyes up to new things, none of them good. Will she listen to those around her who are warning her that she's headed down a path of self-destruction?
Or will she fall too far...too fast...too deep?
When will it be available, you ask??? (Again - play along)
Looks like second week of April. Maybe sooner.
So, go. Go tell all your friends. And your enemies. Tell them IF I FALL by Anna Cruise is coming. Tell them to add it on Goodreads or find out more on Facebook and Twitter.
And don't forget to show them this amazing cover.
