Cover Reveal: Splintered by A.G. Howard & Giveaway

I am very excited to bring you this cover reveal! It will be making its way out into the world soon, but you get to see it here first. The author has chosen to reveal it in the following book trailer. Enjoy!


Splintered by A.G. Howard
Expected publication: January 1, 2013
Publisher: Amulet
Genre: YA Fantasy

For sixteen years, Alyssa Gardner has lived with the stigma of being descended from Alice Liddell -- the real life inspiration for Lewis Carroll's famed novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. But cruel jokes about dormice and tea parties can’t compare to the fact that Alyssa hears the whispers of bugs and flowers ... the same quirk which sent her mother to a mental institution years before.

When her mother takes a turn for the worse and the whispers grow too strong for Alyssa to bear, she seeks the origins of their family curse. A set of heirlooms and a moth tied to an unusual website lead Alyssa and her gorgeous best friend / secret crush, Jeb, down the rabbit hole into the real Wonderland, a place more twisted and eerie than Lewis Carroll ever let on.

There, creepy counterparts of the original fairytale crew reveal the purpose for Alyssa’s journey, and unless she fixes the things her great-great-great grandmother Alice put wrong, Wonderland will have her head.


Pre-order Splintered on Amazon and add it on Goodreads.

About the author:
A.G. Howard is most at home when weaving the melancholy and macabre into settings and scenes, twisting the expected into the unexpected. She was inspired to write SPLINTERED while working as a library clerk at a local middle school. It is her first young adult novel. A.G.’s pastimes are reading, rollerblading, gardening, and family vacations which often include impromptu side trips to 18th century graveyards or condemned schoolhouses to appease her overactive muse.

You can find A.G. Howard on her website, blog, and Twitter.

Giveaway:
To celebrate the cover reveal, A.G. Howard is giving away an Alice-themed bundle, which includes a white rabbit journal, white rabbit bookmarks, and an autographed bookplate. Hop on over to her blog to find out how you can win!
