It's Live!! Double Cover Reveal: Into the Dim (new paperback cover!) and the sequel, Sparks of Light, by Janet B Taylor + Giveaway (Intl)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate a double cover reveal! INTO THE DIM by Janet B. Taylor is getting a new paperback look, releasing April 11, 2017, and we're also revealing the cover for the sequel, SPARKS OF LIGHT, releasing August 1, 2017, from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Before we get to the covers, here's a note from Janet:

Hey YABCers! Welcome to the exclusive double cover reveal for SPARKS OF LIGHT, the sequel to my 2016 debut novel, INTO THE DIM!!

Aaaand…cause I love you so much….I also got permission to reveal the atmospheric new paperback cover for “Into The Dim”!! Some of you may remember that--with INTO THE DIM—we had quite the journey with covers. Today, we’re revealing two…two…two covers for the price of one! I like the paperback cover, but what really sets it off for me, is how great it’s going to look sitting side-by-side on the shelf with…

The explosive new cover for SPARKS OF LIGHT!!!!

You GUISE!!!!!

When HMH sent me the SPARKS OF LIGHT cover, I just kind of gaped at it for a second, then I turned to my hubby with a huge grin on my face and said, “Oh, HELL yeah.” Of course, I then lost any smidge of cool cred, when I emailed my editor back and told them the cover was amazing and…ahem…ELECTRIFYING! J (Yeah. That’s right. I rocked that oh-so-clever quip.) ;)

Anyway, I’m thrilled to the moon with this cover and let me tell you that it is categorically PERFECT to represent Hope, Bran, Collum, and Phoebe’s “shocking” new adventure! (#nerd)

INTO THE DIM

by Janet B. Taylor
Release date: April 11, 2017 (paperback release)
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
 
About the Book

‘INTO THE DIM’-----When fragile, sixteen-year-old Hope Walton loses her mom to an earthquake overseas, her secluded world crumbles. Agreeing to spend the summer in Scotland, Hope discovers that her mother was more than a brilliant academic, but also a member of a secret society of time travelers. And she's alive, though currently trapped in the twelfth century, during the age of Eleanor of Aquitaine. Hope has seventy-two hours to rescue her mother and get back to their own time. Passing through the Dim, Hope enters a brutal medieval world of political intrigue, danger, and violence. A place where any serious interference could alter the very course of history. And when she meets a boy whose face is impossibly familiar, she must decide between her mission and her heart—both of which could leave Hope trapped in the past forever.

SPARKS OF LIGHT

by Janet B. Taylor
Release date: August 1, 2017
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
ISBN: 9780544609570
 
About the Book

‘SPARKS OF LIGHT’-----For the first time in her life, Hope Walton has friends, a (maybe) boyfriend, and she’s a Viator, a member of a long line of time-traveling ancestors. When the Viators learn of a plot to steal a dangerous device from the inventor Nikola Tesla, only a race into the past can save the natural timeline from utter destruction. Navigating the often-treacherous glitterati of 1895 New York City, Hope and her crew discover that among high society, the Gilded Age is as deadly as it is beautiful.

In this sequel to the dazzling time-travel adventure, ‘Into the Dim’, sacrifice takes on a whole new meaning as Hope and Bran struggle to determine where—or when--they truly belong.

About the Author

Janet B.Taylor lives in such a small town in Arkansas that if you happen to sneeze when you pass by, you'll totally miss it. (Cause, you know, you can't sneeze with your eyes open. For real--try it--it's impossible)
SPARKS OF LIGHT is her second novel. In this sequel to INTO THE DIM--which Diana Gabaldon, author of Outlander called: “Instantly Engaging”—Hope and her friends take on a whole new adventure when they travel to the glamorous, dangerous world of nineteenth century New York City to protect the eccentric inventor, Nikola Tesla.
Janet is a reader/fan first and a writer second. She lives with her fantastic husband, two hilarious sons, and Dorda the diabetic dog who won't win any beauty contests, but has a "nice personality".

I'm fangirling so hard right now! I've been checking this site all morning since I saw on Janet's Twitter last night that the cover reveal would be here today! I have been waiting for this book since before the first officially came out. I got to read and review an eARC of Into the Dim through NetGalley and loved it so much that I preordered a physical copy. I love the cover of Sparks of Light and reading the synopsis it sounds like the perfect title and cover. I love Nikola Tesla(we actually have the same birthday!) so I'm very excited for this one! I love these characters so much and I have an immense love for history! Thanks do much for the chance! The jewellery is gorgeous and so perfect for this amazing series! Congrats to Janet on this gorgeous cover!
