~Gratuitous book porn post~

I have Kill Me Softly hardcovers in my possession! The book isn’t out until April 10, 2012, but my author copies arrived, so I figured I’d post some pics so you guys can see what it looks like. The jacket is matte with a gloss on the title, vines, & my name … and the vines on the inside flaps (pic #3) are glossy too.

Some of you may have seen this already via fairytalemood. For anyone who hasn’t, here’s the cover & description for my fairy tale novel Kill Me Softly, which releases April 10, 2012. Not long now!


True love’s kiss just may prove deadly….
Mirabelle’s past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents’ tragic deaths to her guardians’  half-truths about why she can’t return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town,  Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined.
In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples,  the obnoxious playboy who’s a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for  damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are  played out again and again.
But fairy tales aren’t pretty things, and they don’t always end in happily ever after. Mira has  a role to play, a fairy-tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate,  Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy-tale curses of their own … brothers who share  a dark secret. And she’ll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns.
