Drum Roll! Cover Reveal: The Reluctant Jillaroo! Prizes to be Won!
Well, I’ve been waiting and waiting… Waiting to get the Hi-Res final copy of my cover so I could show you. And finally I’ve chased it down! Do you know, have any idea, how hard it’s been to sit on this!!
My agent, Jacinta di Mase, summed it up when she said this cover is ‘simply delicious’. And she’s right. It just draws me back and back to it. So pretty. And it’s got horses inside! Well, not pictures, but the story certainly features horses. I hope you love it as much as we do.
Expect to see it around because – why not? It’s so gorgeous, I may not be able to stop myself flaunting it.
And so, without further ado…
What do you think? I’d love to know.
My publisher, Allen & Unwin, intro:
Surf-loving Heidi impersonates her horse-mad twin to help Harper get a scholarship to attend the much sought-after agricultural school in this rural romance from Australia’s queen of teen, Kaz Delaney. Suitable for teen readers of Rachael Treasure.
Harper Gage has won the opportunity of a lifetime – ten days at Winmaroo Jillaroo and Jackaroo school. The camp could give her the recommendation she needs to go to the exclusive Agricoll for years 11 and 12. But when an accident leaves Harper hospitalised, her twin sister, Heidi, goes in her place. The only problem is that Heidi is not much of a country girl – not like her sister. And to make life even more complicated, her sister’s biggest rival Trent is going to be there. Will she be able to fool him?
And then the reality of the school hits Heidi hard. It’s all dust, snakes and heat – a million miles away from the surf she loves. When she meets the fun and handsome Chaz, life at the school suddenly doesn’t seem so bad, although with Trent acting up and trouble brewing with the other students, Heidi’s not sure how long she can keep her identity secret. And if her secret is revealed, will Chaz ever be able to trust her again?
To help me celebrate, I’m giving away two randomly drawn prizes. All you have to do to be one of those two winners is to comment – even just a couple of words – on this particular blog over the next week or so. Okay, we’ll make it by the 23rd October.
The prize? A delicious Book Pack featuring mostly YA books by Aussie writers, plus a couple of books for younger readers and even the adult readers won’t be forgotten! And because it’s me – there HAS to be something sparkly in the mix, right? Such fun!
So, come on in! Don’t be shy! Celebrate with me. It’s not much fun celebrating alone.
