We have a special treat for you today, YABCers! A title reveal!

Today we're honored to reveal the title for Book #2 in the Alex Wayfare Series by MG Buehrlen releasing Spring 2015 from Strange Chemistry. Before we get to the title, here's a note from MG:

 

I was certain there would be months of agonizing title trials as we searched for the perfect title for the sequel to THE 57 LIVES OF ALEX WAYFARE. Mainly because I'm horrible at coming up with titles and place names and character names. The pressure! It's just too intense, and I get bogged down by silly details. But luckily, the very first suggestion I tossed on the table was the one my publisher loved. I sent it around to my critique partners and beta readers asking their opinion, and it got the green light. So it's a go! I think it's the perfect addition to the series. And HINT: it has to do with a pretty major reveal in Book 2, one that only a rare few of you may have already picked up on in Book 1. Oh, the suspense!
