SHADOW Reveal and Ad Astra

Lots of fun news to share this week!

First of all, we had the cover and plot reveal for SHADOW, the ebook novella prequel to INK:

Meet two teens whose worlds are about to change forever in this paranormal Young Adult novella, a prequel to Ink by debut author Amanda Sun…

Katie Greene’s worst nightmare comes true when her mother dies, and she’s devastated to learn that she will have to leave the only home she’s ever known. Desperate to find where she belongs, she must decide if she has what it takes to start a new life across the ocean.

For Yuu Tomohiro, every day is a nightmare. He struggles to control his strange ability, and keeps everyone at a distance so they won’t get hurt—even his girlfriend, Myu. At night, a shadow haunts his dreams, and a mysterious woman torments him with omens of death and destruction. But these haunting premonitions are only the beginning…

GAH. I absolutely LOVE this cover and hope you do too. The art team really took into consideration the story and tone of SHADOW, while keeping the look consistent with INK. I feel so lucky to have a team that really understands my work and can present it like this. ^_^

SHADOW is out June 1st, and is available for preorder so far at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Or you could add it to your Goodreads:
