It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Alone by Cyn Balog + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for ALONE by Cyn Balog, releasing November 7, 2017 from Sourcebooks Fire. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Cyn:

Hi, YABC!  My favorite part of the book-writing process is the moment I get to see one of my covers for the first time! While I might have a way with words, I have zero talent when it comes to all things visual art, so I'm completely at the mercy of graphic designers and no help whatsoever in cover direction. So I was super excited to see what the designers at Sourcebooks would come up with for ALONE, since creepy covers are my favorite.  This one still gives me chills!  What do you think? Totally creepy, right? Who is behind that door? It could be anyone. But I promise you, it's nobody good. It is a horror novel, after all! I can't wait for you to read it!

~Cyn

About the Book

You’re never really alone in this new suspenseful novel from the author of Unnatural Deeds, which Kirkus praised as “a PG-13 version of Gone Girl.”

When her mom inherits an old, crumbling mansion, Seda’s almost excited to spend the summer there. The grounds are beautiful and it’s fun to explore the sprawling house with its creepy rooms and secret passages. Except now her mom wants to renovate, rather than sell the estate—which means they're not going back to the city…or Seda's friends and school.

As the days grow shorter, Seda is filled with dread. They’re about to be cut off from the outside world, and she’s not sure she can handle the solitude or the darkness it brings out in her.

Then a group of teens get stranded near the mansion during a blizzard. Seda has no choice but to offer them shelter, even though she knows danger lurks in the dilapidated mansion—and in herself. And as the snow continues to fall, what Seda fears most is about to become her reality…

I'm a bit too frightened of spooky thriller covers, but the whole old mansion thing and hidden threats thing sound intriguing....

In a way the cover is kind of spooky, makes you wonder what's behind the door or what's going to happen.

This book cover reminds me of something brewing and burning in the depths of suspense. The synopsis sounds mysterious. I would love to read this book and add it to my mystery thriller collection.
