Man, oh man. I'll admit, I didn't know what they were going to do for this one. I gave them a book with a historical fantasy setting based on Edwardian England (but not actually Edwardian England). So it had magic, but also a recognizable setting. Fancy dresses! Teacups! Bewitched birds! And, at the center of it all, Jessamin, a girl feeling very small and alone in a country far, far from the beautiful island she'd grown up on. They had to come up with a cover that somehow captured all of that.
AND THEY DID.
Anyway. Gah. So gorgeous. And that tagline kills me. Thank you, HarperTeen and my designer Michelle Taormina, for once again working your cover magic!
It doesn't come out until September, but here, have a blurb from Stephanie Perkins, internationally bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door:
“Illusions of Fate is an absolute delight—a magical, sparkling, dangerous world with witty repartee and a romance that will light your heart on fire. Kiersten White’s best yet.”
Moving onto the next exciting thing:
You can read all of Mind Games online for FREE until Monday! That's right--the entire book. Snuggle in with your laptop or tablet and read away. It's a fast read, and you'll be done just in time for Perfect Lies coming out on Tuesday! No waiting, and, since it's a duology, no cliffhangery second book.
That's it for now. But this weekend look for some fun Perfect Lies extras! And don't forget to come see me next week if you're near NYC, DC, Nashville, or New Orleans!
