|Bask in its bight, beautiful goodness! Purple glasses! Gold gloves! ICE CREAM.|
(Note: That is an actual scene in the book, which makes me happy.)
Isn't is awesome? I never thought I'd have a sequel cover, and I do! That's crazy to me, and it makes it so much more real. You'd think it'd be real, seeing at the book is out in like 4 months, but it's REALER.
Now, I'm sure some of you might have a few questions. The first might be something like: Gee, Natalie, why does this cover look so different from the Transparent cover?
|See? Totally matches! |
Diner and everything!
Good question, imaginary person! The answer is simple: my UK publisher is the one printing this book, so the cover matches the UK Transparent. This might be a little confusing, US peoples, but THIS is the cover you will be looking for, too! Hot Key Books has World English rights to Blindsided, so the book will be in the US and Canada (previous rights my US publisher had) but will just have a slightly happier look to it.
Imaginary person might have a follow up question like: So what is Blindsided even about?
Never fear! I have COVER COPY to share, too! Is this your lucky day or what?
What price would you pay just to look in a mirror? It's junior year of high school, and Fiona has definitely had enough of being invisible. It's pretty hard to have a normal relationship when the only photos of her and Seth show him kissing thin air. On top of that, old Arizonan gang tensions are threatening to spill over at any minute, which could put them all in serious danger. So when Fiona realizes that she and her friends know something that could change everything, she has to decide whether working with the criminal syndicates is too high a price to finally be seen.
Cool, right? Well, I think it's cool. I've wanted to share this bit of Fiona's story for so long, but I honestly never thought I'd get the chance until Hot Key asked me to write it. I'm so pumped!
And one last question for imaginary person: But WHEN do we get to read this great sequel? You've been giving vague estimates but no exact date!
I know, but I HAVE an official release date now! I can officially tell you that Blindsided will be released January 2, 2014.
DO YOU KNOW HOW SOON THAT IS? *flails*
