Announcement + Winners

On Friday I got ARCs of my YA thriller IMPOSTOR in the mail! I can't tell you how surprised I was when I opened the package and found my ARCs inside. I couldn't stop staring at the pretty.
Here are the spines:

And then yesterday I officially revealed the cover on YA highway.
Here it is:

Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she’s spent the last two years training with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI.

When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again.

Tessa hates everything about being an impostor—the stress, the danger, the deceit—but loves playing the role of a normal girl. As Madison, she finds friends, romance, and the kind of loving family she’d do anything to keep.

Amid action, suspense, and a ticking clock, this super-human comes to a very human conclusion: even a girl who can look like anyone struggles the most with being herself.

I love it so much, and it perfectly reflects the book! 
IMPOSTOR  has an official pub date: July 11th, 2013 from Razorbill/Penguin. And you can even pre-order it on Amazon!
Since I have ARCs now, I'll have my very first IMPOSTOR ARC giveaway very very soon!

But now it's time to announce the winners of my YAmazing Race bonus contest! 




Please email me your address to this email:

Thanks to everyone who participated!

Cover Reveal: The Life Beyond!!

Today I'm finally allowed to share the cover for THE LIFE BEYOND, the sequel to The Other Life with you!

I love that it's similar to the cover of The Other Life. Black and white. I'm sure the two books will look fabulous together!
And do you see the bleeding butterfly? It changed, didn't it? It looks more like a hornet. And more dangerous, because that's what this book is. More dangerous for Sherry and Joshua and the other survivors!

And here's the back and the front together: (Don't read the text if you haven't read The Other Life. Spoilers ahead!)

It hits shelves March 1st, 2013 in the UK! Less than five months to go!
I can't tell you how much I love the cover! My UK pub Usborne has done such a fabulous job!
