claraandclaire-official

Cover reveal day is finally here! I am so thrilled to finally be showing you the official cover for Clara and Claire, the one you’ll be seeing on release day and from that day forward. So at least, here’s everything to know about my upcoming release.

Title: Clara and Claire
Author: Lindsey Richardson
Genre: fantasy, mystery
Release date: December 2016 **actual date TBA soon!
Cover designer: Alivia Anders of White Rabbit Book Design
Blurb:
Betrayal wears many masks. Sometimes… familiar ones.
On the night of her 20th birthday, Clara Nasso witnesses an illegal act of magic.
The following morning, two lives are changed forever.
When Claire Kanelos, daughter of the head counselor, disappears from the island of Ninomay, Clara is kidnapped and taken there by a council member. Her unmistakable resemblance to the missing woman, and the disturbing facts that come to light, convince Clara to stay and play the role of Claire –at first, for one night only, and then indefinitely.
Though Clara grew up hearing stories about the rich and powerful mages that filled Ninomay, all she finds there are liars and mysteries. And Ezra, the only person who can see through her disguise. He promises to help her return home, but how can Clara leave when secrets are unraveled every day and a killer might walk freely?
When she might be the key to Claire’s survival?

Clara and Claire will be releasing in both paperback and ebook formats. I’ll be announcing the official date as soon as I set it, but in the meantime, here’s also the book jacket for the paperback.

Thank you again to Alivia for making another cover, and this one really tops everything! I really can’t put into words how amazing this cover looks. Now I can’t wait to get my proofs and see this it in print!
Throughout today I’ll be updating all my social media to show the new cover. Shoutout to everyone who’s already sharing the cover, and a huge thank you to everyone who plans to. At the end of the day I hope we can spread awareness of this book’s upcoming release. Not too much longer of a wait now!
Thank you so much to everyone who’s been patient with the release of this book. Believe me, I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to release it. But all the hard work and time spent on it has been well worth it. When it releases it’s going to be beautiful and ready for your eyes. I hope you’ll be able to fall in love with Clara’s life just like I did.

Clara and Claire Cover Reveal: Sign Up

Clara and Claire is releasing soon, and it’s time we prepare for the cover reveal! I don’t know the exact date just yet, but I’m expecting it to be this month (unless something unexpected goes wrong).

How do you sign up? Simple, go to this form and answer all the questions. I promise it’s quick and easy! All the questions I’m asking help me contact you for the big day. If you’ve done cover reveals with me in the past this is exactly like how we’ve done it before.

Never done a cover reveal before? That’s okay, there’s a first time for everything! Cover reveals are a great way for authors to spread the news about their upcoming release. AND a great opportunity for readers (and potential readers) to learn more about the book.

The cover reveal for Clara and Claire will include the official cover, book jacket, summary, a teaser, and most importantly a release date! (This is why I hesitate to pick a date for the reveal because I want to make sure it has the release date. And there’s a few things being finished up this month, so hang tight.) Overall, it’s a really big day, and I couldn’t do it without your help. So if you love book covers as much as I do and you’re excited for the release, please sign up.

I’ve had people in the past say, “but my blog isn’t that popular” or “I don’t know if me sharing it will do anything.” But that’s not true! Anyone can participate in a cover reveal. And the best part is it all happens on the internet, so pick your favorite social media (or several) and share away! I’ll be reposting what you share throughout the day as much as possible.

I’m really excited for this cover –quite honestly because it’s the best one yet– and I think you’re going to love it. It was done by Alivia, who did the cover for Thicker Than Blood, and she never fails to impress me.

If for some reason you can’t figure out the form, leave a comment or email me and I’ll gladly help you. The more, the better! So if you have friends who love to participate in cover reveals bring them along with you. This cover reveal is only going to happen once, and when it does we want to make it as big as possible!

Thank you so much in advance to everyone who’s planning to participate and for the support!
