A while back I was honored to participate in the cover reveal for Adriana Ryan’s novel World of Shell and Bone. Well, Adriana has been hard at work and has another book releasing in June! Check out the cover for Secret for a Song:
I love the play of light and think it makes the cover very striking. Congrats, Adriana, you have excellent cover art luck!
Adriana’s previous novel was set in a dystopian world, but Secret for a Song is a contemporary drama that sounds like it’s going to be a real tearjerker. Here’s the synopsis:
Saylor Grayson makes herself sick. Literally.
She ate her first needle when she was seven. Now, at nineteen, she’s been kicked out of college for poisoning herself with laxatives. The shrinks call it Munchausen Syndrome. All Saylor knows is that when she’s ill, her normally distant mother pays attention and the doctors and nurses make her feel special.
Then she meets Drew Dean, the leader of a local support group for those with terminal diseases. When he mistakes her for a new member, Saylor knows she should correct him. But she can’t bring herself to, not after she’s welcomed into a new circle of friends. Friends who, like Drew, all have illnesses ready to claim their independence or their lives
For the first time, Saylor finds out what it feels like to be in love, to have friends who genuinely care about her. But secrets have a way of revealing themselves. What will happen when Saylor’s is out?
Yikes, my tear ducts have already started their work-out routine to bulk up for reading this one!
And now here’s a quick bio for Adriana: A huge fan of spooky stuff and shoes, Adriana enjoys alternately hitting up the outlet malls and historic graveyards in Charleston, SC where she lives and imbibes coffee. Her husband and two small children seem not to mind when she hastily scribbles novel lines on stray limbs in the absence of notepads. You can find her on Twitter
, and Goodreads
What do you think of the cover? How about the synopsis? Do you think the novel will have you cuddling with a box of tissues?
