The day has finally come for me to reveal the HOLY COW AMAZING cover the talented team at Balzer+Bray designed for DEFIANCE. I am beyond excited!!! The cover reveal is happening on the lovely YABooksCentral site. The chance to enter to win a DEFIANCE prize package is happening here.

First, the cover. Go ahead. Click! Drool! Admire! I'll wait for you.

Isn't it gorgeous? And fierce? And just ... *happy sigh*

Right. Prize package. Ready for this? I'm giving away a signed hardback of DEFIANCE (when they become available) along with a one-of-a-kind DEFIANCE journal and tote bag!

(They are pretty! *pets journal and tote bag*)

Entering is easy. Just fill out the form below. Send a few more people to look at the cover if you want extra entries! I'll use random.org to choose a winner. The contest runs until 8 p.m. central time Thursday, March 1st and is open internationally!

Good luck!
