Published January 27, 2015 by christinenorris

The day has finally, FINALLY arrived! After the LONG journey this book has been on, it actually has a cover!! The day I got it i my email, a few weeks ago, I was SO excited to see it. It is everything I wanted, and more. YA Books Central was the first to reveal the cover, and you can visit the reveal post to enter my AWESOME giveaway.

At long last, and finally finally finally, here it is!





Just a little more….


Keep going….



Ta da!


And the full wrap:


I am over the moon with happiness! All the blank images will be replaced with this STUNNING cover, and I can show everyone!

I also updated the Book Trailer to include the cover AND the release date!


Cover reveal teaser — A CURSE OF ASH AND IRON

Published January 24, 2015 by christinenorris

We’re just a couple of days away from the BIG cover reveal! Today I thought I’d give you just a TINY teaser for the cover. It took awhile for me to choose a bit that wouldn’t give too much away but that was intriguing as well. Ready? Here you go…

Ash & Iron hint 1

That’s all you get until Tuesday! Watch YA Books Central’s blog on Tuesday, January 27th at NOON EST to see the rest and enter my giveaway for one of THREE posters of the cover art, signed by me! One hour after that, the cover will reveal here on my blog as well as a bunch of blogs around the blogosphere. I can’t WAIT to post it on Goodreads and get rid or that blank book!

If you want to be a part of the reveal, today’s the last day to sign up, which you can do on this simple form:

Thanks, lovelies! See you Tuesday!

Cover reveal: Help!

Published January 11, 2015 by christinenorris

So now one cover reveal is done (and it is awesome!), I need to prepare for the next. Yes, the cover for A CURSE OF ASH AND IRON is done!! And it is spectacular, to be honest. I jumped up and down when I saw it. I want to make a BIG deal of the reveal, celebrate it right.

The cover reveal will happen on JANUARY 27th, at Young Adult Books Central, at noon EST.

What I need is people to share it after that — 1pm EST on that day. Bloggers, I need your help. If you’d like to be part of the fun, please fill out this form. It’s a simple Google doc. I will send you the cover and all the information you need no later than the day before the reveal. You’ll just have to copy and paste and publish. Easy. If you do, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a $10 Amazon GC. (there will also be a link to the YABC reveal, because I’m having a giveaway there, too — which you will be eligible to enter as well!)
