DOWN WITH THE SHINE Cover Reveal and Giveaways!!!

Do you have trouble keeping secrets? Usually, I don't. EXCEPT when I get a new cover. Then it's soooo hard to keep it secret, because I just want to show it to everyone. But I can't until the official cover reveal day. Luckily, that day is (FINALLY!) today! 


So without further ado, here it is...

Isn't it pretty!??!

And here is the official book description:

There's a reason they say "be careful what you wish for." Just ask the girl who wished to be thinner and ended up smaller than Thumbelina, or the boy who asked for "balls of steel" and got them-literally. And never wish for your party to go on forever. Not unless you want your guests to be struck down by debilitating pain if they try to leave.

These are things Lennie only learns when it's too late-after she brings some of her uncles' moonshine to a party and toasts to dozens of wishes, including a big wish of her own: to bring back her best friend, Dylan, who was abducted and murdered six months ago.

Lennie didn't mean to cause so much chaos. She always thought her uncles' moonshine toast was just a tradition. And when they talked about carrying on their "important family legacy," she thought they meant good old-fashioned bootlegging.

As it turns out, they meant granting wishes. And Lennie has just granted more in one night than her uncles would grant in a year.

Now she has to find a way to undo the damage. But once granted, a wish can't be unmade...

But that's not all! I also have 2 giveaways going on right now!!

The first is at Young Adult Books Central where the official cover reveal took place. Go there now and enter to win a signed ARC of DOWN WITH THE SHINE. 

The second is an exclusive giveaway for newsletter subscribers only. I'm giving away a swag pack that includes an etched mason jar mug, buttons, bookmarks, and bookplates. You can find the giveaway and sign up for the newsletter here.

*****Edited to add a picture of the finished mug with the custom etching. (It's the one on the left. The smaller one on the right will be reserved for another giveaway sometime in the future).
