Shadow of the Mark Cover Reveal!

Sorry for the long wait. I know this day has been a long time coming, but finally I can share the new and shiny cover of Shadow of the Mark. Ta-daaa!




There's no mistaking it. This is definitely a Carrier Series cover, and that was the intention. After the amazing reception to the cover of Carrier of the Mark, HarperCollins wanted Shadow's cover to be instantly recognizable. And it is, but the new darker color palette reflects the darker tone that this installment brings, and I think the pink and purple really make it pop. I love it and think the team at HarperTeen have done another amazing job. I hope you like it too.

Shadow of the Mark is due to hit the shelves on the 9th July 2013 and you can pre-order it on Amazon already. Yay!

If you can't wait until the 9th of July, I have one signed ARC up for grabs along with a signed copy of Carrier of the Mark and some super swish swag. So enter the giveaway below to get your mitts on one of the first ARCs while they're still hot of the press. You can earn ten entries, so the more you do, the more chance you have of winning. Good luck and thank you spreading the word.

Huge thanks to all the amazing bloggers and authors who helped me with this cover reveal today. You guys are simply fantastic. I adore you all. And thank you to my readers and fans. Your encouragement, messages, letters, reviews, and unrelenting enthusiasm keep me going day after day. I send big squishy hugs to each and every one of you.

All the very best and talk soon,

Leigh

  58. It's an intriguing cover! Love the coloring of it. Checked out the cover of 'Carrier of the Mark' and I was loving it! I see the similarities of the covers, but, also, the differences can be seen because of the darker palette of 'Shadow of the Mark.' Loved it! The cover definitely peaked my interest to check out this trilogy! :)
