Readers: February 27th: Apologies for the scattered posting that's about to come during the next week or so. University has just started and I have a lot of work to do to get on top of things (and ahead!). Thanks for your patience, as always.

Publishers: I promise I'm not abandoning the lovely review copies you've sent!

Cover Reveal: The Glimpse

I'm sure you've all seen this cover floating around today. I was finally given the go-ahead this morning to share it! Doesn't the story sound intriguing? I can't wait to get my hands on it!

The Glimpse by Claire Merle
Released June 7th 2012

In a near future, society is segregated according to whether people are genetically disposed to mental illness. 17-year-old Ana has been living the privileged life of a Pure due to an error in her DNA test. When the authorities find out, she faces banishment from her safe Community, a fate only thwarted by the fact that she has already been promised to Pure-boy Jasper Taurell.  Jasper is from a rich and influential family and despite Ana’s condition, wants to be with her. The authorities grant Ana a tentative reprieve. If she is joined to Jasper before her 18th birthday, she may stay in the Community until her illness manifests. But if Jasper changes his mind, she will be cast out among the Crazies. As Ana’s joining ceremony and her birthday loom closer, she dares to hope she will be saved from the horror of the City and live a ‘normal’ life. But then Jasper disappears.  Led to believe Jasper has been taken by a strange sect the authorities will not interfere with, Ana sneaks out of her well-guarded Community to find him herself. Her search takes her through the underbelly of society and into the pits of the human soul. And as she delves deeper into the mystery of Jasper's abduction she uncovers some devastating truths that destroy everything she has grown up to believe, but she also learns to love as she has never loved before.

New vs. Old

The new cover immediately catches my eye first. It looks attractive, mature and fit to be on my bookshelf! The neutral colours and textures are gorgeous <3 (I have a strong urge to decorate my whole house in grey and teal now.) After you read the synopsis....the cover looks even better! Jagged twigs + wooden heart = restriction. Yes....... And of course, how can you not love the tagline? Describes the book wonderfully!

This new cover suits the story much more than the old in so many ways! Congratulations to the Australian team for doing such a fabulous job and getting the UK pubs hooked too ;) I absolutely can't wait to read this book - hopefully review copies will be available soon! 

Are you looking forward to reading this too?
