A TOUCH OF SCARLET Cover Reveal Giveaway!

I have been absent from this blog for quite some time, consumed with book revisions and personal challenges and going back to school. But A Touch of Scarlet releases six months from now, and I find myself wishing it were out now. If this book had a season, it would be fall. The story begins where A Breath of Eyre left off, with Emma starting her junior year at Lockwood Prep. But everything is changing—the leaves on the trees, her relationships, and most important, Emma herself. Feeling lonely and restless, Emma begins to run in the woods behind her school—sometimes in an attempt to evade her fears, other times in search of something that seems to be calling to her. As the ghosts of the forest draw her in, she comes face to face with the characters from Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter. And if she’s brave enough to face them, they might just have a lesson or two to teach her. Here’s the gorgeous autumnal cover!


To those who have already read A BREATH OF EYRE, you’ve probably seen the cover in miniature on the back flap of the book, but it looks so much lusher in full size! While ARCs won’t be available for several months, the book is available for pre-order. You can also add it to your Goodreads list. To celebrate the cover reveal, I am giving away a prize package that includes:
  • A signed copy of A BREATH OF EYRE
  • A signed cover flat for A TOUCH OF SCARLET
  • Bookmarks and magnets for both books
 

Just answer the following question in the comments: What is your favorite thing about fall? You’ll also get:

          +1 entry if you retweet this post (Win a signed copy of @evemariemont's A BREATH OF EYRE plus swag for A TOUCH OF SCARLET: http://tinyurl.com/9yeuluc)
          +1 entry if you post this link on Facebook
          +1 entry if you post the contest on your own blog (please leave a link here)

The giveaway is open internationally and will end at midnight E.S.T. on Tuesday, October 16. Good luck!

It happens to be my favourite season so I could say everything but mostly the rich dark colours, the leaves falling and that cool breeze in the evenings!!

Eve Marie Mont said...

Allison, it's my favorite season too, if it weren't for "back to school." Thanks so much for entering!!

Amanda Marie said...

Favorite thing about fall.. The cold weather! Sure beats those hot days! I like in South Texas.. We have ALOT of hot days! lol!

Eve Marie Mont said...

Amanda, very true!! Thanks for entering!

Angelica R. Jackson said...

My favorite thing about fall is the return of the white-crowned sparrows. They spend the summer up at higher elevations, and then come down to the foothills in Sept-May. I can hear their sweet song from the garden right now!

Eve Marie Mont said...

Angelica, I just looked up what a white-crowned sparrow is--they're so cute! It was good to "see" you here again; thanks so much for stopping by the blog!

Jaime Morrow said...

My favourite thing about fall? I'm not sure I can limit it to just one. I love the coziness that comes with fall: the warmer clothing (scarves, boots), the colour of the leaves, pumpkins (and anything made of pumpkins), spice in almost everything I consume, more tea and hot beverages, rainy days that are perfect for reading or writing... It is by far my favourite season, and I look forward to it every year!

alicia marie said...

I love fall! I think it's probably my favorite season. I think my favorite thing is how the temperatures finally start getting lower and getting into jacket weather. And, I love watching all the leaves change colors on the trees : )

Alyssa Goodnight said...

LOVE it!! Cannot wait!

No need to enter me, but my favorite thing about fall is the cooler weather! (And the pumpkin, well, everything!)

Eve Marie Mont said...

Jamie, fall is def. my favorite season too, and you summed up a lot of great reasons why, esp. pumpkins & spice!

Alicia, jacket weather is great, too--a good excuse to take a brisk walk under the changing leaves.

And thanks so much, Alyssa, for stopping by! I can't believe we're both about to go through this madness for a second time!!

I love the Fall colors and cooler weather of course, the ambiance of bonfires, hot apple cider, pumpkin pie, and all the special food and drink associated just with Fall & Thanksgiving.;) Thanks for the giveaway!

Eve Marie Mont said...

I know, Vivien. What is it about cooler temps that makes us want to gorge on pie and herb stuffing and carbs galore?

And javalotta, you make me want to warm my hands around a bonfire while sipping cider and telling ghost stories. I'm surprised no one has said Halloween yet!

Christina Kit. said...

LOVE fall because of the leaves turning, creepy leafless branches tapping against your window right before you go trick or treating, and lots of jack-o'-lanterns:)

Thank you! Your books sounds so awesome:)

Christina, ooooh, "creepy leafless branches tapping against your window"--reminds me of the beginning of Wuthering Heights!!

And Margie, I love being able to wear sweaters and boots. I'm beginning to think fall is everyone's favorite season!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

My favorite thing about the fall is the weather (+ Halloween!). I prefer the semi-cold weather over the humid summer weather :)

The covers for A Touch of Scarlet and A Phantom Enchantment are gorgeous!

Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

I meant to say IT looks very beautiful and lush, Eve! Blame that on my sticky keyboard . . . eating too much chocolate, I guess. LOL!

Congratulations!!!

Congratulations on you cover! I love fall because of all the bright colors, and it usually not too hot or too cold...sometimes. ;)
