I can't believe I finally get to share this little beauty.
I've been staring at it for months. I don't expect you to stare at it for that long, but I'll take an audible show of excitement and a few seconds of staring.
Basically, in my opinion, the folks over at Bloomsbury Spark knocked this one out of the park.
Before I get to the main event (you didn't look already, did you???) I thought I'd give a really short explanation for where the inspiration for ONE WISH AWAY came from (because it's actually pretty neat, unlike how I get many of my other ideas which is usually someplace really not exciting like the car, or the shower, or while I'm lying awake staring at my ceiling.)
About two years ago I was visiting a friend, let's call her Katie, with another one of my good friends, let's call her Jen. We actually had to take three plane rides and an eight hour bus ride just to get to Maine, but that's a whole other story.
We're driving back from Acadia National Park after a beautiful day of hiking and eating seafood. I'm sitting in the passenger seat, looking up at the brightest stars I've ever seen and thinking, man I wish this weekend wasn't over already.
Then, being the writer I am, I decided to create a world where something as simple as that wish could come true.
Of course, not without unforeseen consequences.
And with that bit of background, I give you the cover for ONE WISH AWAY.
On November 11th, 2014...
Be careful what you wish for…
Lyra has always been ahead of the curve. Top of her class in school, a budding astronomer, and with a best friend like Darren she barely has time to miss the mother who abandoned her family years ago. She's too busy planning to follow in her father's footsteps, and to become the youngest astronomer at Space Exploration and Discovery.
When a star goes missing Lyra is determined to get to the bottom of it only to discover her braniac dad is the mastermind of a top-secret government experiment. They promise to build a perfect world, one galaxy at a time, but with every tweak of the present, a bit more of the future starts to crumble.
Lyra has to go undercover to reveal the truth and let humanity decide if the consequences are worth more than wishing on a star.
