1st IN HONOR Giveaway!!! Jacket Proofs and a Special Sneak Peek!!!

I love emails from my editor that end in multiple exclamation marks.  When I got the one titled "Jacket Proofs!!!" I dropped EVERYTHING to open it up and ogle the cover image of IN HONOR on my laptop screen.  It made me wish I had one of those mammoth-sized monitors that I could just stare at forever and ever.  But then last week, I got something even better from the UPS man:

The actual jacket proofs!!!



 
Why yes, I took them around my house and photographed them in various locations with my own red boots, but I had a reason, and the reason is this:

I'm going to give them away this week
(The proofs, not the boots. They were a gift from my hubby.)

And you want these. Know why?

On the back cover, which you can't see anywhere online, is Honor's travel companion, Rusty.  And whoa boy, is he perfect.  Rugged-looking like I imagined, with just enough revealed to hint at his hotness. 

AND THIS:

I'm going to do something special with these proofs.  Every road trip needs a playlist, and IN HONOR has one that's near and dear to my heart.  It's a playlist I listened to almost every day while I was writing the story of Finn, Honor, and Rusty.  I listened to it on my runs, while gardening, doing dishes, waiting in the school pick up line...everywhere.  It's how I stay connected to a story.  Each song corresponds to a scene, theme, or feeling in the book, and three lucky winners will get an exclusive sneak peek at the list all of the tunes that inspired IN HONOR.

BECAUSE... 

On the inside of each jacket proof I give away will be the IN HONOR playlist, hand-written, and signed by me.

  38. Those boots are killer. Is it wrong that they were the first things I noticed - such a fantastic contrast.

    I'm so curious to see the mysterious boy on the back. ;)
