LARKSTORM: Cover Reveal

Sorry for being MIA this week--my schedule once again caught up with me! I'll be back next week, but I couldn't miss this opportunity to tell you about one of my agent-mates, Dawn Rae Miller, and her soon-to-be-released book, LARKSTORM.

You can read about Dawn's decision to self-publish LARKSTORM with the support of the Nancy Coffey Literary Agency here. Dawn's a total entrepreneurial soul, so when she told me she was going to do this, I knew she'd be successful!

Without further ado, here is the cover!

The cover artist is Sarah Marino, who did a phenomenal job!

Here's a little more about the book:
In the years following the destructive Long Winter, when half the world’s population perished, the State remains locked in battle against the Sensitives: humans born with extra abilities.

As one of the last descendants of the State’s Founders, seventeen-year-old Lark Greene knows her place: study hard and be a model citizen so she can follow in her family’s footsteps. Her life’s been set since birth, and she’s looking forward to graduating and settling down with Beck, the boy she’s loved longer than she can remember. 

However, after Beck is accused of being Sensitive and organizing an attack against Lark, he disappears. Heartbroken and convinced the State made a mistake, Lark sets out to find him and clear his name.
But what she discovers is more dangerous and frightening than Sensitives: She must kill the boy she loves, unless he kills her first.
I've read Dawn's book, and it's an exciting and emotional page-turner. I cannot wait for the sequel! Here's the link to it on Good Reads. You can follow Dawn on Twitter here. You can read more about her here (she's one of the most interesting people I know).

LARKSTORM (the first of a trilogy) will be out in December!

  7. Great story. Great cover. Great friend for sharing. Hmm? An agent helped with self publishing? I like that. Don't know how that quite works though.
