Book Jacket!

I got an unexpected package in the mail on Friday:

Fracture cover proofs! I am so very, very excited, because: A) the book, it is happening -- like for real, it is really happening; and B) I am totally in love with the cover and the entire jacket in general.

The title is embossed:

Can you see that? Probably not. I take horrible pictures. Sorry.

Oh, and here’s the spine. Just in case you happen to be looking at a bookshelf, this is what it’ll look like…

And here’s the back of the jacket, all cold and snow and lake, like the front, which I adore. Oh, and there's an excerpt from Fracture:

In case it’s not big enough, here is said excerpt:

“A lot can happen in eleven minutes. Decker can run two miles easily in eleven minutes. I once wrote an English essay in ten. No lie. And God knows Carson Levine can talk a girl out of her clothes in half that time.

Eleven minutes might as well be eternity underwater. It only takes three minutes without air for loss of consciousness. Permanent brain damage begins at four minutes. And then, when the oxygen runs out, full cardiac arrest occurs. Death is possible at five minutes. Probable at seven. Definite at ten.

Decker pulled me out at eleven.”

Also, the lovely Petra made a countdown widget for Fracture, which is right over there on the sidebar of the blog. See it? Up there? There it is. AHH! 70 days.

I freak out a little every time I see it. But it’s a happy freak-out. Thank you, Petra! And the code is there to grab, if you are so inclined.

Have I had too much caffeine this morning? Perhaps….

Already pre-ordered my copy! I love Fracture and am still trying to put into words how much without any spoilers. Base on how much I enjoyed it, I'd read anything and everything you publish in the future, even if it was a genre or on a subject I'd usually shy away from. Definitely one of the most beautifully written books I've ever read, Can't wait to see what you do in the future :-)

Petra, I wish I could put into words how I feel about your comment :) Thank you so, so much! That is seriously the nicest, most amazing comment EVER. I'm so glad you liked Fracture, and I'm so grateful for all your support!

Thank you, Talia!! I can't wait to see all our books together in the wild!
