It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Girl Who Saved Ghosts by K.C. Tansley + Giveaway (Intl)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for The Girl Who Saved Ghosts by K.C. Tansley, releasing October 17, 2017 from Beckett Publishing Group. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from K.C.:

 Hi, YABC! I’m excited to be here today to reveal my cover. I’m K.C. Tansley and I wrote THE GIRL WHO SAVED GHOSTS, the second book in The Unbelievables series. I didn’t think the cover designer could do better than the first book’s cover, but she totally did! I am so beyond grateful to my publisher for putting a girl with glasses who isn’t a size 6 on the cover of my books. When I was younger, I never saw girls that looked like me on the cover of a book and it really bummed me out. (I wore glasses and was a curvy girl in high school. Still am, actually.) Confession time: When I was a little girl my grandmother asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, and I told her green. So seeing my name in seafoam green, which happens to be my favorite color, is a dream come true for me!

THE GIRL WHO SAVED GHOSTS

By: K.C. Tansley
Release date: October 17, 2017
Publisher: Beckett Publishing Group
 ISBN: 978-1943024049
 
About the Book

She tried to ignore them. Now she might risk everything to save them.

After a summer spent in a haunted castle—a summer in which she traveled through time to solve a murder mystery—Kat is looking forward to a totally normal senior year at McTernan Academy. Then the ghost of a little girl appears and begs Kat for help, and more unquiet apparitions follow. All of them are terrified by the Dark One, and it soon becomes clear that that this evil force wants Kat dead.

Searching for help, Kat leaves school for the ancestral home she’s only just discovered. Her friend Evan, whose family is joined to her own by an arcane history, accompanies her. With the assistance of her eccentric great aunts and a loyal family ghost, Kat soon learns that she and Evan can only fix the present by traveling into the past.

As Kat and Evan make their way through nineteenth-century Vienna, the Dark One stalks them, and Kat must decide what she’s willing to sacrifice to save a ghost.

***

1 sentence summary:

When an ancestor’s ghost begs her for help, Kat risks herself—and the friend who’s sworn to protect her—by traveling in time to nineteenth-century Vienna.


 
 
 
About the Author

K.C Tansley lives with her warrior lapdog, Emerson, and two quirky golden retrievers on a hill somewhere in Connecticut. She tends to believe in the unbelievables—spells, ghosts, time travel—and writes about them. Never one to say no to a road trip, she’s climbed the Great Wall twice, hopped on the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg, and danced the night away in the dunes of Cape Hatteras. She loves the ocean and hates the sun, which makes for interesting beach days. The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts is her award-winning and bestselling first novel in The Unbelievables series.

As Kourtney Heintz, she also writes award winning cross-genre fiction for adults. You can find out more about her at: http://kctansley.com

I "like" the cover but I'm not exactly "in love" with it.

I do think the synopsis is interesting and I read though some of the reviews and it already has received some great feedback from those who had access to advance reader copies.
