I am very, very (very) excited to be sharing the cover for my third novel today! It has been revealed over at Maximum Pop Books too (thanks guys!), but for anyone who missed their post, here it is!
Here’s a little video of my talking about it, or if you’re impatient – keep scrolling for the cover!
DON’T YOU LOVE IT? I LOVE IT SO MUCH. It really captures the feeling and tone of the book – the light beams represent Romy’s only form of communication with Earth, laser beams sending messages back and forth in binary code.
The central radiation from her body is going to be silver foil, and I’ve got a printed version and the effect is absolutely STUNNING:
I can’t wait for you all to see it in real life!
I hope you love the cover, and I absolutely cannot wait for you all to read Romy’s story. Nine months to go!!
And here’s the blurb:
Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never met, never even spoken to – someone who is light years away?
Romy Silvers is the only surviving crew-member of a spaceship travelling to a new planet, on a mission to establish a second home for humanity. Alone in space, she is the loneliest girl in the universe until she hears about a new ship which has launched from Earth with a single passenger on board. A boy called J.
Their only communication is via email and due to the distance between them, their messages take months to transmit. And yet Romy finds herself falling in love.
But what does Romy really know about J? And what do the mysterious messages which have started arriving from Earth really mean?
Sometimes, there’s something worse than being alone…
