But today I am not going to talk about my novel. Instead, I want to present to you a brand new, shiny cover for Bethany Lopez's book, "Ciao". Congratulations, Bethany. You rock!
First, I would like you to "meet" the author. So, here's her bio:
Bethany Lopez was born in Detroit, Michigan, and grew up in Michigan and San Antonio, Texas. She went to High School at Dearborn High, in Dearborn, Michigan, which is where she has set her Young Adult novels. She is married and has a blended family with five children. She is currently serving in the United States Air Force as a Recruiter in Los Angeles, California. She has always loved to read and write and has seen her dream realized by independently publishing her contemporary Young Adult series, Stories about Melissa. Ta Ta for Now! and xoxoxo are available now. Book three, Ciao, will be released in Aug 2012.
And now, I have a short synopsis for Ciao, the third book in Bethany's contemporary Young Adult series, Stories About Melissa.
Book Three in the Stories About Melissa Series.
Melissa has had a fantastic summer hanging out with her friends and making new ones. Life as she knows it will change when they all come together to begin their sophomore year at Dearborn High. Connections will be made and friendships will be tested. Will Melissa’s family and friends be able to help her through the challenges she will face in the upcoming months?
And the cover:
For the cover of Ciao, Bethany used an original photo, that she took herself. The image is based on one of the scenes in the book.
Isn't that a clever idea?
You can find more about Bethany here, here, here, here, here, and here. So click, click, click, click, click, and click. Make sure you follow Bethany on Facebook (one of those "heres"), Twitter and Pinterest.
Add "Ciao" to your To-Be-Read list on Goodreads (yes, here). "Ciao" is scheduled for a publication on August 2012.
