It's Live!! Cover Reveal: How to Disappear by Ann Redisch Stampler + Giveaway (International)

Hello, YABC!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for HOW TO DISAPPEAR by Ann Redisch Stampler, releasing June 14, 2016 from Simon Pulse. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Ann:

Yesterday How to Disappear had a good cover; today it has a great one, and I’m thrilled to reveal it on YABC! 

How to Disappear is a dark, twisty psychological thriller.  The story is told in chapters that alternate between the voices of Nicolette, a resilient small-town cheerleader on the run, and Jack, the Las Vegas hit man’s son who’s blackmailed into tracking her down and getting rid of her.  

It’s not completely clear which one we should be rooting for.  Because nothing in this story is exactly as it seems.  Nicolette’s harmless wild streak might not be so harmless.  Jack’s conscience might be more than theoretical.  Both of them have a lot to hide.  And neither one is telling the whole truth. 

What I love about this new cover is that, in addition to being beautiful, it offers up a mysterious image of a girl we can’t fully see, whose features are consumed by darkness, and who is obscured by a welter of scratches – an image that can be interpreted in several different was all of which work with the story.  Her face is illuminated by the glow of a flash of light; she might be moving toward it, but she isn’t there yet…I don’t think I can go any further with this without publishing a giant spoiler, so I’ll refrain. 

But I am so grateful to my editor and the design team at Simon Pulse for truly understanding the (partly scratched out) face this book should present to readers, to set the tone as they open the book and begin to read.

HOW TO DISAPPEAR

by Ann Redisch Stampler
Release date: June 14, 2016
Publisher: Simon Pulse
ISBN: 978-1481443937
 
 
About the Book
 

This electric cross-country thriller follows the game of cat and mouse between a girl on the run from a murder she witnessed—or committed? —and the boy who's sent to kill her.

Nicolette Holland is the girl everyone likes. Up for adventure. Loyal to a fault. And she's pretty sure she can get away with anything...until a young woman is brutally murdered in the woods near Nicolette's house. Which is why she has to disappear.

Jack Manx has always been the stand-up guy with the killer last name. But straight A's and athletic trophies can't make people forget that his father was a hit man and his brother is doing time for armed assault. Just when Jack is about to graduate from his Las Vegas high school and head east for college, his brother pulls him into the family business with inescapable instructions: find this ruthless Nicolette Holland and get rid of her. Or else Jack and everyone he loves will pay the price.

As Nicolette and Jack race to outsmart each other, tensions—and attractions—run high. Told in alternating voices, this tightly plotted mystery and tense love story challenges our assumptions about right and wrong, guilt and innocence, truth and lies.

Thank you so much, Penny! I was going for intriguing that built to shocking, for reasons that have as much to do with who Nicolette and Jack are as people as the situation they're sucked into. I hope you'll see what I mean in the book itself!

I've never seen a cover that matches a book so perfectly. (I find it ironic how she started going by Cat and her face on the cover is partly scratched.) I love how you made both of the characters seem mysterious by not directly pointing out who the villain or if there's one at all. That definitely piqued my interest in the book. It seems like it has a well thought out plot and I hope to read it in the nearby future! Congratulations!

Thanks, Tania! I so appreciate your reaction to the cover and synopsis, and I agree, those scratches that partly obscure the girl's face -- this design couldn't be a more perfect fit for the story!!!
