Shaker of Shamelessness

I have no idea what a "shaker of shamelessness" might be, but it sounded cool.



We're going to start off with a cover reveal, woo hoo! THE RUNAWAY KING, the sequel to THE FALSE PRINCE by Jennifer Nielsen, is just ten kinds of awesome!

To celebrate the announcement, she is giving away a signed ARC to a reader who wants it NOW! Enter for a chance to win at

Not only that, but THE FALSE PRINCE has been nominated for a Goodreads Choice Award, as one of the best middle grade books of the year. If you want to vote for that book (or any of the nominees in all twenty categories), you can find it here.

Stay calm, I have more covers to reveal!!!!!

Megan Crewe has not one, but TWO cover reveals! THE WAY WE FALL and THE LIVES WE LOST have a brand new look!

Speaking of covers, Lisa Amowitz has an announcement!
Lisa Amowitz's VISION, the first in The Finder series, in which a young man discovers that an ability to read the objects he touches is linked to his migraines; when a murder rocks his sleepy town, he must use his newfound gift to track the killer and discovers a shocking truth connected to his own troubled past, plus a sequel, to Vikki Ciaffone at Spencer Hill Press, by Victoria Marini at Gelfman Schneider.
In addition, Lisa's cover design business is in full swing.  The cover reveal for EXTRACTED (The Lost Imperials, Book One)!

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard about Superstorm Sandy that slammed the east coast this week.  Our own Anne Nesbet weathered the storm in Philadelphia, camped out in her daughter's dorm room. Then she came back to California to find ARCs of A BOX OF GARGOYLES, which means she also have a cover!

Lastly, not a cover reveal, but an AWESOME new book deal announcement from Anna Staniszewski!

MY VERY UN-FAIRY TALE LIFE author Anna Staniszewski’s next two novels, THE DIRT DIARY and THE DIRT WAR, about a fourteen-year-old girl who joins up with her mom’s house-cleaning business, only to find herself inside the homes of the most popular kids in school—and stumbling across their secrets, again to Aubrey Poole at Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency (World English).
