It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson + Giveaway (US Only)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for ALLEGEDLY by Tiffany D. Jackson, releasing January 24, 2017 from Katherine Tegen Books. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Tiffany:

Hi, YABC! Thanks so much for having me over to reveal the cover for ALLEGEDLY. I’m super excited about this cover because it was truly a collaborative effort from beginning to end. Most importantly, shout out to the dope cover diva extraordinaire Erin Fitzsimmons! I had a very particular way I needed the main character Mary to look, and she went above and beyond to make it happened with an entire reshoot, in which I was able to help pick out the model and wardrobe. Here's a fun fact: That "ash" flying into Mary's face, it's actually coffee! Talk about a wake up call!    

Check out the BTS cover shoot photos on my blog! www.writeinbk.com

ALLEGEDLY

by Tiffany D. Jackson
Release date: January 24, 2017
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
ISBN: 9780062422644
 
About the Book
Mary B. Addison killed a baby.

Allegedly. She didn’t say much in that first interview with detectives, and the media filled in the only blanks that mattered: A white baby had died while under the care of a church-going black woman and her nine-year-old daughter. The public convicted Mary and the jury made it official. But did she do it? She wouldn’t say.

Mary survived five years in baby jail before being dumped in a group home. The house isn’t really “home”—no place where you fear for your life can be considered a home. Home is Ted, who she meets on assignment at a nursing home.

There wasn’t a point to setting the record straight before, but now she’s got Ted—and their unborn child—to think about. When the state threatens to take her baby, Mary must find the voice to fight her past. And her fate lies in the hands of the one person she distrusts the most: her Momma. No one knows the real Momma. But who really knows the real Mary?

In this gritty and haunting debut, Tiffany D. Jackson explores the grey areas in our understanding of justice, family, and truth, and acknowledges the light and darkness alive in all of us.

I like the cover a lot -really gives you a feeling of loneliness and despair - but the summary of the story is what's really compelling to me. It sounds fantastic and like a story that really needs to be told. I can't wait to read it!

The cover has the advantage of being unusual in its design; standing out can't hurt! I am really impressed by the author's ambitious choice of thematic content and excited to enjoy the drama of this (probably) page-turner of a plot! Thanks, Kara S

The cover really catches my eye because it doesn't fill all the available space. The basic font is also different when compared to other covers. Love the simplicity of this message.

I love the character already. I want to hear her story and make a connection. That cover almost had me in tears! I'm moved and I haven't even read it yet, so I am definitely going to read this.

This is my favorite book blurb that I have ever read. It takes emotion to a whole other level. How the author captured the feelings she must be feeling is amazing. Lovely cover.
