Cover Art - Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

Jeri Smith-Ready has posted the preliminary book jacket to her forthcoming (May 18, 2010) YA novel Shade on her website. Shift, a sequel, will follow in Summer 2011. It's nice, but the swirly things very much remind me of Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers covers and wait... doesn't Rachel have a book named Shift coming soon too?

When Aura's boyfriend dies a most untimely death, she is forced to reconsider her relationship with the living...and the dead.

You can find out more about the book and the characters by visiting Jeri's blog post from last January here.

  1. Busted! Rachel and I are in fact the same person. ;-p

    If it makes a difference, SHIFT is the penultimate book in Rachel's (adult) Werecat series, and has to do with shapeshifters. My SHIFT will be out over a year later (hopefully long enough after Rachel's), and the title refers to the mysterious event that caused the heroine and everyone born after her to see and hear ghosts.

    Titlewise, I've had worse coincidences. The same month my WICKED GAME came out, an author with another publisher had a book called WICKED GAMES. D'oh!

    Thanks for posting the cover!

  2. Jeri I was beginning to think something paranormal was going on *grin* It just caught my eye because Rachel's stuff has been in the news and reviews so much lately. Your new YA series sounds great and I look forward to reading it.
