Cover Teaser Contest - Day 1


Today marks the beginning of my pre- cover reveal activities and kicks off the cover reveal contest. It's a scavenger hunt of sorts.





Every day this week, awesome writer friends will post snippets of the cover of my debut novel, Come Back, along with a trivia question.

To be entered in the drawing, visit all participating blogs (I'll link them daily as they occur.) and gather the answers to the questions. Your answers don't have to be correct to winsome will be guessesbut you must have answers to all 7 questions to enter.

Email me with your list by midnight, Saturday, March 29th, and I'll enter you in the drawing. You can also use my blog's contact form.

*The prize is a free e-copy of Come Back once it's published and your choice of a $10 gift certificate to Amazon or Barnes & Noble.*

I'll post the answers and announce the winner on Monday, March 31stcover reveal day!

Today, Julie Flanders and Alex J. Cavanaugh are hosting the first two teaser images and trivia questions. Please pay them a visit and jot down your answers. I'll post more tomorrow. :)

 Unlike the amateurish blog button...
:P

The lovely cover teaser images for this contest
were designed by Carrie Butler.

  7. I suspect it will be a looooong time before those cuttings will make their way outside. Probably around July what with the way this winter is going. Good luck on the cover release.
