Hey Everyone! Shawn Maravel one of my favorite authors is letting me post the cover reveal of her new upcoming book The Wanderer! This cover has not been released yet anywhere else so you guys get special sneak peek first (;  So here is the cover and description:

After getting out of the Army, Landon Bradley packs up his motorcycle and heads North West in hopes of closing up old battle wounds and maybe even settling down. Not accustomed to staying in one spot for too long, he's not certain that he'll ever find a place that he can truly call home.  When he finds himself stranded in a small Wyoming town, Landon meets Maxine Abrams, more affectionately known as Max. Her blunt honesty and humble generosity make him feel closer to home then he ever has before. But when his feelings for her grow too strong, the reality that, like everyone else, he could easily lose her too, Landon feels the ever present urge to leave again. And Landon must decide which call to heed. His heart or the open road.

Isn't it great? You wanna know the cool part? Shawn takes her cover pictures herself! So this cover page she actually took the pic herself, and had a guy in the army model for her and everything! Cool right?  Originally she was going to do a whole body/face shot, but she figured it would be better to not put a face on the main character Landon so you guys can have your own image of him. NOW this is NOT a YA book, even though my blog is YA-Aholic I still read other genres and post about other genres, but the majority of my posts are YA. I don't read other genres often..but this one I will deff be reading, I mean come on I am a sucker for tough guys and romance (; Thank you Shawn for letting me reveal your cover!(:

Upcoming event:
Interview with Shawn will be posted sometime tomorrow or Wednesday!

What do you guys think of the cover/book? (:
