Cover Reveal: Time After Time by Tamara Ireland Stone (plus US/Canada giveaway)
Today, YABCers, we bring you the cover reveal for Tamara Ireland Stone's latest and greatest, TIME AFTER TIME! Are you ready to see it and read what it's all about?
I know you are!
But first, a message from Tamara:
Hi YABC readers! Today's the day! Finally! I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to share the cover of TIME AFTER TIME, the sequel to Time Between Us. Once again, Hyperion's extremely talented Whitney Manger has created an absolutely stunning cover. I love everything about it, from the expressions on their faces to that pesky distance between the two of them (although this time, you'll notice that my favorite time traveler is a lot more in focus. There's a good reason for that and you're about to find out in the synopsis below!). The warm fall colors set the perfect mood, and it's such a beautiful complement to Time Between Us. I can't imagine a better way to bring Anna & Bennett's second (and final!) book to life. I'm excited to hear what you think about the cover, and I can't wait to share this story with you in October!
EEP! I just can't wait anymore! Here we go!
** Visitors, if you choose to share this cover, please include a courtesy link back to this post and giveaway **
It's sooooooo pretty. The pretty pretty much smacks you in the face with its pretty.
And here's the thing: I'm a sucker for books with autumn colors and leaves. If I had this in my hand right now, I'd be hugging it. No lie.
And her shirt? *grabby hands*
But enough of my gushing, here's what TIME AFTER TIME is all about:
Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement: she’s from 1995 Chicago and he’s a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds.
It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work...until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn't want?
Told from Bennett’s point of view, Time After Time will satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what’s next for Time Between Us' Anna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time.
