It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Poison's Kiss by Breeana Shields + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the new cover reveal for POISON'S KISS by Breeana Shields, releasing January 10, 2017 from Random House. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Breeana:

Hello YABC! I’m thrilled to be here today to share the cover of my debut novel POISON’S KISS. Many authors have very specific ideas about what their covers should look like, but I can honestly say, I had no pre-conceived notions. My creativity begins and ends on the page (ask anyone who’s tried to teach me to craft, sew or draw—it can’t be done.) So when it came to a cover, I was open to anything as long as I loved it. (No pressure, design team.) But I didn’t need to worry. My cover designer is Nicole de las Heras and her work took my breath away. I adore everything about this cover from the eye-catching concept to the bold colors and beautiful lettering (the o’s and the s’s in particular make me swoon.) I hope you love it as much as I do!

~Breeana Shields (POISON’S KISS, Random House)

Publisher: Random House
ISBN: 978-1101937822
 
About the Book
Marinda has kissed dozens of boys. They all die afterward. It’s a miserable life, but being a visha kanya—a poison maiden—is what she was created to do. Marinda serves the Raja by dispatching his enemies with only her lips as a weapon.

 

Until now, the men she was ordered to kiss have been strangers, enemies of the kingdom. But when she receives orders to kiss a boy she knows too well to be convinced he needs to die, she begins to question who she’s really working for. And that is a thread that, once pulled, will unravel more than she can afford to lose.

I love the cover! I actually really like snakes and that one is quite beautiful. I guess it parallels Marinda and her poisonous kiss. Very clever!

I don't like snakes, so the cover has my skin crawling already! The story sounds amazing, though, and I'm willing to turn right past that snake to get to the good stuff.

This book sounds incredible! And while I don't exactly love snakes, I think it makes me even MORE curious about the book, so it totally works!
