Hi, YABCers!

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

But For The Mountains by Erin Riha,

releasing June 2nd, 2020 from REUTS Publications!

 

 

 

 

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:

 

Hello, hello! My name is Erin Riha and I’m beyond excited to be here today to reveal the cover for my debut novel, BUT FOR THE MOUNTAINS. The art is by the immensely talented Ashley Ruggirello. When we first talked about the cover, we knew we wanted to evoke a dark and moody aesthetic with a glimmer of strength. I wanted the cover to convey the struggle and resilience of the main character while conjuring the razor-sharp glamour of the world in which she finds herself. When I saw what Ashley created, I got chills. I still get chills at how perfectly she captured the stifling feel of Arden's world as she tries to rise above her station. I hope you love it as much as I do.

But For The Mountains
By: Erin Riha

Release date: June 2, 2020

Publisher: REUTS Publications

 

 

About the Book
 
   

Arden Thatcher wasn’t meant to be chosen.

But when her name is announced, she’s presented with something she never thought she’d have: a future away from her abuser. Shuttled off to attend the prestigious National Women’s Institute, Arden will receive Nordania’s highest honor, studying with other elite candidates to become leaders, diplomats, and ambassadors on the world stage.

Only, the institute’s not quite what she expected. Paraded around in gown after gown, the tests seem less about educating and more about a different competition, with a very specific prize at stake—the Nordanian Prime Minister’s son. Despite the dean’s protestations that angling for an engagement leads to expulsion, Arden sees the truth. There’s a secret bubbling beneath the institute’s refined surface, and those who refuse to play along may well wind up dead.

With the danger escalating, and the return of her abuser on the horizon, Arden’s shiny future becomes a gilded cage. And this time, she’s going to need powerful allies to escape.

Political intrigue, swoon-worthy romance, and a dash of dystopian flare, But for the Mountains begs the question, how do you change the world when you’re not allowed to try?

 


 
 
 
 
 
 
About the Author

She has an undergraduate degree in Political Science, a Law Degree, and a deep reverence for the power of using exactly the right word in exactly the right moment. She lives in wonderfully weird Portland, Oregon, with her super dreamy husband, where they’re raising a future train engineer and a future chicken whisperer.

I like the dark colors of the cover, and the artwork is eye-catching. The synopsis is very intriguing! I wonder what's going on at the Institute!

The cover is foreboding. The story sounds like a good dystopian.
