COVER REVEAL for The Year of Lightning...And a giveaway!!!

Hey guysssss!

I know. You're all thinking, 'Wow, that Bri sure does blog consistently. Yes, "consistent." That's the word. Well, I DO come out of my inconsistent blogging cave when it's to have the opportunity to reveal the awesome cover for my friend, Ryan Dalton's book! (And it's pretttttyyyyyy.)

I'm not going to keep you waiting. Let's let Ryan do the talking. *sits back with popcorn*

Hey, book fans! Dont you hate it when you move to a new town and discover its being destroyed by freak lightning storms? Let me tell you, that makes for a tough year.

Youll find that, and much more, in my debut YA novel THE YEAR OF LIGHTNING. I am completely in love with this cover and so excited to share it with you. After you drink in its awesomeness, keep scrolling down for a brief synopsis, plus a giveaway contest that you can participate in right here in the comments.

So, without further ado, here it is! Enjoy :)

The house has no doors. Its been abandoned for decades. Yet one night, Malcolm sees a face in the window. Fifteen-year-old twins, Malcolm and Valentine Gilbert, never imagined an old house across the street could be so much trouble. A secret machine inside has woken up, and its power is growing.

Meanwhile, lightning storms are breaking out all over town. Theyre getting worse every week and seem to enjoy striking kids who just want to pass science class and mind their own business. Lightning, however, is rarely cooperativeand when Malcolm and Valentine discover a connection between the house and the storms, their situation goes from mysterious to crazy stupid dangerous. As they hunt a powerful enemy, theyll realize that lightning is only the beginning. Their towns very existence hangs in the balance, and the only clues are written in the sky.

One huge way you can support authors is by pre-ordering their books. So if THE YEAR OF LIGHTNING sounds like fun to you, here is a link to the Amazon pre-order page.
