New DEVOTED paperback cover and an AFTERWARD giveaway!

Readers and friends, I’m so excited to share a brand new cover for my second novel, Devoted.  While I adored Devoted‘s original, gorgeous hardcover art, my publisher Macmillan has decided to package the book a bit differently for the paperback in an effort to get Rachel’s story into the hands of even more readers.

So what do you think?

DEVOTED's lovely  new paperback cover!

I love the warm colors and the text woven through Rachel’s hair.  And am I the only one who sees a resemblance between the girl on the cover and the actress Scarlett Johansson?

The paperback version of Devoted will be available on September 20, but you can preorder here if you’re interested in adding it to your collection!

Speaking of September 20, that’s the same day my third novel, Afterward, makes its debut.  Afterward tells the story of two Texas teenagers, Ethan and Caroline, whose lives are linked by a kidnapping.  Afterward is about overcoming guilt, secrets, and shame and finding a soul-saving friendship in the most unlikely place.  I’m so proud of this story and eager to get it into the hands of readers.

Even though Afterward isn’t out yet, you have a chance to win a signed advance reader’s copy and a ton of awesome swag by checking out the GReads! blog.  Many thanks to Ginger at GReads! for all her help organizing this giveaway.  By the way, the contest is open to international readers, too, so enter away!  But hurry – the contest closes on May 20.

Sweet AFTERWARD swag and a signed ARC are available!
