April is Coming...Plus Don't Forget to Breathe by Cathrina Constantine

Today I'm helping with a very special cover reveal...and it's a cover that will take your breath away.

Ready?


Here it is!




Is that not an amazing cover? It's by our very own Cathrina Constantine. Below I have more about her book, but first I wanted to remind everyone that today is the sign-up day for this:






Last year, I met SO many incredible bloggers through the challenge. You just pick a theme and post every day in April (except Sundays), starting with A and ending with Z. Click on this linky to sign up.

Now...on to Cathrina's book.




COMING FROM:
CRUSHING HEARTS AND BLACK BUTTERFLY FEBRUARY 7, 2015
GENRE: YA/HAUNTING MYSTERY


Blurb:

Sixteen-year-old Leocadia arrives home from school to find her mom’s bloody body. Unaware that the killer still lingers, she rushes to her mother’s side, only to be grabbed from behind and then everything fades to black. After a year of retrograde amnesia and battling personal demons, Leo’s dreams are getting worse—she’s starting to remember. More bodies are discovered and they seem to be oddly linked to her mom’s unsolved homicide. When Leo allows her friend, Henry, to drag her to the haunted Lucien Mansion, misty ghosts appear, ghosts that just might lead her to her mother’s murderer.

Will Leo let her memories threaten her into a relapse or, will she fight to find her mother’s killer – only to become his next victim?

Cathrina is having her first ever release party on Facebook: It's for one hour only. There will be a giveaway and ebook prizes. If you wish to join here's the site:

  1. Awesome cover, Cathrina! She rocks. And the release is just around the corner.
    The Challenge sign up list is open and filling fast! This will be my sixth one and it's still just as awesome.

    1. The cover is amazing. Would you believe I actually woke up thinking, "I have to get up and sign up for the challenge so I can be high on the list?" I'm glad I did--I was linking to an A to Z sign-up page that still says, "Signups coming soon."

      Delete
    2. And I fixed your mishap on the sign up page - fixed the link at number thirty-eight and deleted the one further down the list. Thanks, that gave me a chuckle this morning.

    3. Yay! You're awesome!!! It is rather funny. I stumbled to my laptop before coffee and entered my information. It was only AFTER I'd settled down with my coffee that I saw the mistake. (Even then it took me a few seconds to figure out what I'd done!) Everything should have an edit feature--it's my biggest complaint about Twitter.

  2. I love that cover, it's awesome! And the book sounds very intriguing, I'd love reading it :)
    I might not make the A to Z challenge this year since I'm still busy with school and work - but I sure hope I'll be able to take part some time, maybe next year then :) It sounds challenging and like so much fun.
    Have a wonderful week, Stephanie :)

    1. It is time consuming, for sure. I'll be pre-writing all my posts, but keeping up with daily comments will take some time.

  3. Lovely cover. I'd probably play more with the letters and arrange them all around her body from both sides, like waves

    1. There's so much work that goes into a cover. Mine are always just designed for me...so I don't have to think much about it!
