SLEEPER is my debut novel and is a New Adult Speculative Fiction. I'm excited that Entranced publishing has faith that New Adult is more than just sexed up YA contemporary.
After a life saving heart transplant, eighteen-year-old Mishca Richardson is plagued by nightmares and an urgent desire to find her birth parents, which she puts down to post-operation depression. But her new heart seems to bring more than a second chance at life in the form of speed, strength and love at first sight.
Sharon is a writer from Mackay in Queensland, Australia who has short stories published in anthologies and was also runner-up in the Australian Literary Review’s Young Adult short story contest with Karma. By day she is a public relations executive and by night she writes weird fiction and soulful contemporaries while her husband, two sons and cat are fast asleep.
This is just a small part of the gorgeous cover, but hopefully it'll tempt you to want to see more. A bonus is everyone involved in the cover reveal get to see it early. And you can see for yourself why people have been so blown away by it so far.
Here's some things about the cover:
- It blasts away the YA and NA cover trends of the last year (there's no unnecessary formal dress, no red writing, no face so obscured that you don't no what they look like).
- The MC looks how the MC should look! Mishca is of African-American descent and the model matches - no white wash!
- It has a distinctive Aussie flavour to it - which I love seeing as the novel is set in Australia.
- It's a cover that will mean a lot more to you after you've finished the book as the symbolism is perfect.
So if you have a blog or a Tumblr then you can sign up to be part of the reveal, and if you've got Twitter or Facebook then you can share the reveal post on Friday, May 3.
