BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA cover reveal, and a link round up!

this cover!

so gorgeous, and absolutely perfect for BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA! author april tucholke is a very good friend of mine–as well as a fellow friday the thirteener and lucky–and i couldn’t be more excited to share with you guys the cover for her gothic-inspired YA horror debut.

april, dude, your cover is amazing. i love the unique font and how it’s allllll tall, imposing cliffs leading down to a frothy, painful death. it’s moody, atmospheric, and those two little figures on the top have doom written all over them. many congrats, girl! your cover is fantastic.

also, i came across this plate at an anthropologie shop in new york last spring. at the time i took a pic for april, the title wasn’t set in stone. so happy it didn’t change because it really does fit the story so well! but kind of bummed i didn’t pick up the plate. sorry, april–packing it would have been a pain, though!

BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA will be published august 15th, 2013, by dial/penguin. make sure to mark the date–it’s an awesome book!

now for some links!

so in my last blog post i talked about DUALED ARCs being at new york comic con and shared some forwarded pics. my fellow twitterer-and-OOR-tumblrer traci of the reading geek blog posted a super sweet recap of the weekend! traci, thanks so much!

i’m one of the authors taking part in the dreaded elevator pitch over at gate crashers this week. all i can say is the word “dreaded” is pretty accurate. pitches are hard. and thank you, pam witte, for having us on the blog!

lisa was a great host over at a life bound by books last week when she had me stop by. as well, megan was super nice to interview me over at the book galaxy. thanks, lisa and megan! there’s assorted giveaways at both, so be sure to check out their sites as soon as you get the chance.

  1. Wow, this “April Genevieve Tucholke” has a very long name. It’s kind of arrogant to have a name that long, no? Still. I’ll probably read her book. I hope it’s really Devil-y. Lot’s o’ Devils. Yeah.

    Now that I’m thinking about it, this April seems pretty cool. Now that I’m thinking about it, I might be half in love with her.

    Dear April,

    I love you.

    Love, Altho

    Great post, Elsie. The cover for The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is beautiful. It matches the impression I get from reading the blurb perfectly. I got goose bumps when I read the book description. I can’t wait to own it!
    And not to leave you out, of course, I love everything about Dualed, too, and am very excited to read. 2013 is shaping up to be an amazing year for YA!
    Congrats to both of you on your gorgeous books!

    Missed the Between out of the title there – sorry 😦

    • Thanks so much, Kate! It really is a great cover, and having already read DEVIL, it fits perfectly. April will love your comment! And thanks for your kind words regarding DUALED, as well!

    First wow the cover for The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is so gorgeous! Love it and I’m adding that book to my list!

    Thanks for linking up to my NYCC post. Still can’t believe I have a copy of Dualed now yay! Also seriously I heard a lot of great talk about it too during all four days and looked like lots of people got copies. 🙂

    • Yay, April’s cover is too gorgeous, I know!!! That girl scored 🙂

      So happy that you got an ARC of DUALED, Traci! I hope you’ll enjoy it. And how great to hear about the buzz from CC! 🙂 I would have loved to have been there for the publishers’ panel. It must have been so much fun! Enjoy reading all your new books!!

    • Traci, thanks so much. I’m so glad you like my Devil cover.

  5. The synopsis already had me waiting to pre-order and now such a beautiful cover on top. So excited for this release.
