Clockwise

I like this post today because it comes right after most of America has sprung forward to daylight saving's time. You may have heard of Elle's Strauss's YA story CLOCKWISE. Well, it's got a new cover, and she's unveiling it here, and all over the blogosphere.

Take a look:


Isn't it adorable? And check out the blurb:

Casey Donovan has issues: hair, height and uncontrollable trips to the 19th century! And now this --she’s accidentally taken Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time. Awkward.
Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just “brotherly” protectiveness?
When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom of the rung of the social ladder and Nate perched high on the very the top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.
Which of course, she does.

Want to buy it? You can do so here. It's already gotten rave reviews, so you'll definitely want to add it to your reading list. Be sure to visit Elle on her blog too!

Hey, sweets,

Gee, is it that time already for A-Z. I swore last year I wouldn't do it because it drove me INSANE. But, of course, I signed up a few weeks ago.

Everyone loved my Flash Fiction riddles last year, so I might do that again. Not sure yet. I will definitely be by to read yours.

Congrats to Elle! It surely looks like a fun read.

I've had a few weird anonymous comments myself but never so many in a row; that's odd.
