Cover Reveal – Elegy

Before I get to the fabulous cover for the final book in the Watersong series, I thought I should mention that the first two books – Wake and Lullaby – will be available in trade paperback for the first time on April 16, 2013. Thus far, they’ve only been out in hardcover, and I know some people prefer the feel of paperbacks. Right now, the pre-order for the Wake paperback is only $5.55 at Amazon and $5.37 at Barnes & Noble, so if you haven’t picked it up yet, you seriously should. (The ebook for Wake is also only $2.99).

Lullaby will also include the short story Forgotten Lyrics in the back. It’s already out as an ebook, but since it’s so short (some people have called it a novella, but it’s actually shorter than that), it’s not really feasible to release it on its own. By including it with paperbacks of Lullaby, it was a way to get it out to people who don’t enjoy ereaders or reading on their computers. And if you’ve already purchased Lullaby, you’ll be able to check it out from the library more easily (I know that not all libraries are lending ebooks yet). Plus, the events in Forgotten Lyrics really tie into some of the answers in Tidal, so it’s the perfect time to read it.

Now onto the big reveal. Elegy – the fourth and final book in the Watersong series – finally has an official cover and a release date. Elegy will be out August 6, 2013. (The third book in the series Tidal will be out on June 3, 2013). The description for it is a bit spoilery, so I’m hiding it in blue for most of you that haven’t read Tidal. But if you have, or you don’t mind a hint at what’s to come, just highlight and read away.

Now that Gemma holds the key to breaking the siren curse, the stakes have never been higher. At last, a future with those she loves—and a romance with Alex—is close enough to touch…but not if Penn has anything to say about it. Penn is more determined than ever to have Daniel for her own and to destroy Gemma and Harper along the way, and Penn always gets what she wants. Now a final explosive battle is about to begin, and the winner will take everything Gemma holds dear.

So what do you think of the cover? I love it. It was between this one and another one, and while they were both great (Lisa Marie Pompilio at St. Martin’s does AMAZING work), I liked this one a bit more, and I hope you guys like it too.

After having the last two book have different characters on the cover (Lullaby has Harper, and Tidal has Daniel and Penn), it seems like perfect symmetry to have Gemma on the cover. It started with her on Wake, and it ends with her on Elegy.

Also, I mentioned it before, but I’ll say it again: “Night is Cold” by Civil Twilight is the theme song to Elegy. The song fits so perfectly, it’s insane, and I listened to it on repeat while writing.
