Cover Reveal for Shades of the Future

It’s here! The cover reveal for Shades of the Future, due out July 2012.

Shades of the Future cover

I’m doing a simultaneous cover reveal here, at the Honey Creek Books blog, at V. B. Tremper’s blog, and on my Suzanne Lilly author webpage. Thank you to Kim Jacobs for designing such an eyecatching cover.

You can be one of the first to read an excerpt from Shades of the Future by sending a blank email to

What would you do if you could see your future? Would you try to change it? What if you couldn’t? Sometimes this thing we call “the gift” is really a curse.

 Mariah Davis loves animals, running, and her hunk of a boyfriend, Kevin Creamer. Everything looks bright for her until the day she finds a pair of sunglasses that allow her to see the future.

When she glimpses a disaster looming, she tries to avoid it but fails. She has a car accident that lands her in a wheelchair, smashing her hopes for a running scholarship to the veterinary program at Ohio State University. She pushes Kevin away, thinking he’ll want to end their relationship now that she can’t walk.

Will she ever learn to trust and love again? She could search for an answer in the sunglasses. But she’s afraid what they reveal might destroy her. 

I’ll be on book tour in July, and I’ll be giving away a pair of designer sunglasses to one lucky commenter. Subscribe to my blog so you’ll be able to follow me on tour and enter every day to win.

Wishing you many hours of happy reading!

    LOVE your cover–and so excited for your new release! I just have one question: Where’s the picture of you in blue hair??? 😉


  2. Thanks, Cathy! So funny you asked about my blue hair photo. So many people want to see it. I didn’t do a very good dye job, so it looked pretty fried. All the pics are on my students’ phones, so I have to contact some of the parents to see if they’ll send me one of them, and then I’ll crop out the student. It’s not a pretty sight…enough to scare little children.


  3. Cover love:) Cool idea to give away a pair of designer shades. I’m a follower:)
