It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel + Giveaway (US Only)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for BLACK BIRD OF THE GALLOWS by Meg Kassel, releasing September 5, 2017 from Entangled Teen. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Meg:

Hello YABC readers!

So, right now I’m finishing the edits of BLACK BIRD OF THE GALLOWS, which comes out in Sept., and it feels like forever ago that I sat down and started rooting out the story of Angie and Reece. The book is about a girl who learns her new neighbors are harbingers of death and her town is destined for a disaster, but it’s also about music and friendship and bees and doomed love. This book and I have been through a lot of changes together, but nothing prepared me for the day I saw the cover for the first time. My publisher asked me about my vision for it. Visuals? Colors? Yeah, I had no idea, which is embarrassing because I have a degree in art and I STILL couldn’t offer one decent suggestion. But THIS, my friends, is what I would have described if I could have found the words. From the colors to the paint spatters to the honeycomb in the background, it captures the dark romance and mystery I tried to infuse in this book. I hope you enjoy BLACK BIRD OF THE GALLOWS. I loved spending time in Angie and Reece’s world and I hope you do to.

––Meg (Black Bird of the Gallows, Entangled TEEN)
