It's getting SO real that my debut novel is publishing so soon. Are you excited with me? GET EXCITED!
Today I'm going to reveal my incredibly beautiful cover. Before I do I'll have some fun stuff, because you have to wait for the good stuff in life. But even before the fun stuff I want to start with some thank yous. First I have to say thank you to my hubby who encouraged me to start trying for publishing with my weird little book that took so many years to write. He's my rock and totally deserves the dedication he got. Next I have to thank my CPs. They helped make this book (and my writing) so much better. I'd be so lost without all of my writer friends. Which means I need to thank everyone who is helping with this promotion. The debut will have so much better success because of everyone who loves me enough to help!
Finally I want to thank Astraea Press for taking a chance on me and Rearview. I think it's great, and I'm so glad someone else does too! Thank you AP for the beautiful cover you'll see. It's so amazing!
Okay now to the fun stuff :)
COVER REVEAL FUN STUFF:
*The basics of the book:
Title: In the Rearview
Author: Maria Ann Green
Genre: YA Contemporary
Release date: August 19th
Main character: Meagan
*Blurb: When Meagan’s secret is found out, and she realizes there is no way to outrun her habit of cutting, she tries to work through it, and her depression, before she cuts too deep, making a mistake that can never be undone.
Meagan's problems aren't like every other adolescent's no matter how much she wishes they could be. Hers are worse. They've pulled her down into the depths of a depression that is anything but normal. She begins her pattern of self-harm as her depression threatens to drown her. She starts with one cut that leads to the next, and the next. After starting, it's apparent that there's no stopping, and Meagan spirals into a dark and cruel world she doesn't understand. Meagan cuts to feel better, but that comfort doesn't last long enough, and soon life is worse than it ever was before.
While learning to quit cutting Meagan faces life-altering obstacles and grows up in the process. IN THE REARVIEW is a story of pain, loss, confusion, and hope told through Meagan’s poems, journal entries, and a splash of narrative.

These are some of the WONDERFUL friends who (the ones who have blogs) are helping me promote this book. I think it's because they believe in me and kinda like me. And I REALLY like them too. So please check out their blogs too:
