Cover Art Reveal: CONJURED

Thanks so much to all of you who have been tuning in for my new craft-of-writing posts.  I'm having lots of fun with those and I promise there will be much more to come.  But today, I've got some book news to share!

Look, look, LOOK!!!  Cover art!!!!!

I am very, very excited to share with you the cover art for my next YA novel, CONJURED, coming from Bloomsbury / Walker on September 3, 2013:


The first glimpse at the cover art for your new book tends to be a very intense and exciting moment.  It certainly always has been for me.  Cover art is so visual and it makes the book feel so much more real.  Getting the first cover jpeg is a bit like seeing the first ultrasound picture of your new book-baby.  But without all that ultrasound goo.....

Perhaps I've said too much.....  Anyhoo, I really love this cover.  Just the right amount of creepy for a book that is definitely my creepiest to date.

From the jacket flap:

Eve has a new home, a new face, and a new name -- but no memories of her past. She's been told that she's in a witness protection program. That she escaped a dangerous magic-wielding serial killer who still hunts her. The only thing she knows for sure is that there is something horrifying in her memories the people hiding her want to access -- and there is nothing they won't say -- or do -- to her to get her to remember.

At night she dreams of a tattered carnival tent and buttons being sewn into her skin. But during the day, she shelves books at the local library, trying to not let anyone know that she can do things -- things like change the color of her eyes or walk through walls. When she does use her strange powers, she blacks out and is drawn into terrifying visions, returning to find that days or weeks have passed -- and she's lost all short-term memories. Eve must find out who and what she really is before the killer finds her -- but the truth may be more dangerous than anyone could have ever imagined.

And did you notice the awesome author blurb on the cover!!!  I'm thrilled and honored to share with you this lovely blurb from the magnificent Laini Taylor:

"A twisted circus of a book, completely freaky and delicious at the same time. It's a thriller, a fairy tale nightmare, and a romance all in one, unlike anything else and impossible to predict. I could not stop reading!" -- Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone series

Woohoo!  I can't wait for September!!
