When the Butterflies Came Cover Reveal: Isn't it Pretty?


One of the things I like best about my "job" as a book blogger is that it gives me the chance to know and work with some wonderful authors.  Kimberley Griffiths Little happens to be one of my favorites.  Not only is she incredibly sweet and personable, but she's also a very talented writer.  She's published several middle grade novels, two of which (The Healing Spell and Circle of Secrets) I've raved about recently here on the blog.  Her next, When the Butterflies Came, will be available in April 2013.  Forbidden, her first YA novel, also releases in 2013.

When I saw Kimberley in May, she gave me a sneak peek of the beautiful When the Butterflies Came cover.  I'm excited to be able to share it with you now:

 
Isn't it pretty?

The story sounds intriguing, too, don't you think?:

Everybody thinks Tara Doucet has the perfect life. But in reality, Tara’s life is anything but perfect: Her dear Grammy Claire has just passed away, her mother is depressed and distant, and she and her sister Riley can’t seem to agree on anything. But when mysterious and dazzling butterflies begin to follow her around after Grammy Claire’s funeral, Tara just knows in her heart that her grandmother has left her one final mystery to solve.

A strange butler shows up to take Tara and Riley to Grammy Claire’s house, where Tara finds a stack of keys and detailed letters from Grammy Claire herself. Note by note, Tara learns unexpected truths about her grandmother’s life. As the letters grow more ominous and the keys more difficult to decipher, Tara realizes that the secrets she must uncover could lead to mortal danger. And when Tara and Riley are swept away to the beautiful island of Chuuk to hear their grandmother’s will, Tara discovers the most shocking truth of all — one that will change her life forever.

In conjunction with the big cover reveal, Kimberley's also hosting a giant giveaway on her blog.  She's giving away THREE autographed copies each of The Healing Spell and Circle of Secrets.  Also, if you're a blogger with a significant following of your own, you can enter to win one of THREE When the Butterflies Came ARCs.  Awesome, right?  Visit Kimberley's blog to throw your name into the hat.

Even if you don't win, you definitely want to check out Kimberley's books.  The Healing Spell and Circle of Secrets are both beautifully written and wonderfully atmospheric (they're set in the bayous of Louisiana)—they're excellent stories for readers of any age.
