KEEPER 2 Title and Cover REVEALED!!!!!

I am SO EXCITED that I can finally share this with you guys--the wait has been TORTURE. 

I'm not going to bother saying anything else, because I know you're all just going to scroll right down to look at THE PRETTY--and I don't blame you!!! Go. Bask in the AWESOMENESS!



...




...





Ta Da!



ISN'T IT GORGEOUS??????????????????

*stares*

*stares more*

And obviously you can also see the title for book two:

EXILE

dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnnn.

I have a feeling I will never be able to stop myself from calling it KEEPER 2 (habits are hard to break). But EXILE is a perfect title.

And in case you can't already tell, that is NOT the same boy that's on the cover of book 1. 

That, my friends, is KEEFE!

KEEFE!!!

(Which does NOT mean that I am Team Keefe. I am Team Sophie. BUT KEEFE ON MY COVER IS STILL INSANELY AWESOME)

For those of you trying to guess what's going on in the scene--or what that BEAUTIFUL creature is--you can find a few clues in the blurb for the back of the book (warning: there are some *slight* book 1 spoilers in this--though nothing you don't learn in the very first 2 pages of the book):

Sophie Foster thought she was safe. Settled into her home at Havenfield, surrounded by friends, and using her unique telepathic abilities to train Silveny--the first female alicorn ever seen in the Lost Cities--her life finally seems to be coming together. 
 

But Sophie's kidnappers are still out there. And when Sophie discovers new messages and clues from the mysterious Black Swan group, she’s forced to take a terrifying risk—one that puts everyone in incredible danger. 
 

As long buried secrets rise to the surface, it’s once again up to Sophie to uncover hidden memories—before someone close to her is lost forever.
 

In this second book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie must journey to the darkest corners of her luminous world in a sequel that will leave you breathless for more.

If you think that sounds as awesome as I *hope* you do--or just want to make me happy--you can add KEEPER 2: EXILE to your goodreads shelves HERE. You can also like the facebook page for the entire KEEPER series HERE.

And ... that's all for now. Ff you need me, I will be here. STARING AT THE SHINY.

*stares*

*still staring*

*WILL BE STARING FOREVER*

  8. Omg!! Yesss. It is gorgeous Shannon :D I love love love it. <3 SO PRETTY!! And the title is amazing :D Ahh. I want this book right away. Want it very, very much <3 But oh. I'm worried about Keefe being on the cover. Okay, yes, I adored him, but I'm not hoping on him as a romance interest. That's what Fitz is for :D And oh. I very very very much hope that there is a lot of Fitz in this book. <3 There must be. Right? :D

  21. Hi! Congratulations! I really love the cover it's so cute *-*
    I want to ask you something: Is this book going to be translated in spanish soon?

    1. Hi Bella!

      Thank you so much. And honestly, I wish I knew, but foreign translation is one of those things an author knows very little about. I know Spain did buy the rights to print a Spanish edition of book 1, coming from RBA Libros. But I don't know when that will be hitting shelves. As soon as I know I'll post it on my blog, but at the moment I have no idea. Sorry!

  25. It is a beautiful cover! I've just become aware from another author that you write MG -- for some reason I thought you wrote YA. Will have to check out your first book! I'm trying to review more MG. Wishing your book much success when it is released!
