I ABSOLUTELY FREAKING LOVE BEAUTIFUL BOOK COVERS, and I have been known to stare longingly at those in book stores for long amounts of time, drawing strange looks from other browsers probably wondering if I'm some kind of cardboard cut out. I'm not. I'm just fond of lovely powerful images that adorn books. So, naturally, today I'm super excited to be a part of a very special person's cover reveal.
My lovely friend and editing partner Rebecca Carpenter writes an incredible YA contemporary science fiction series called THE METAMORPHOSIS SERIES, with her debut BUTTERFLY BONES winning an award (OH YEAH!) and book 2 BUTTERFLY BLOOD coming out in August (and it's one heck of a sequel!). Well, the series has had a face lift, courtesy of the awesomely talented Emma Wicker, and OH MY WORD IT'S GORGEOUS!
Check it out...
HER BONES. HER FUTURE. HER SACRIFICE.
“I wish I was a normal fifteen-year-old. I have dreams that I am.”
Fifteen-year-old Bethany Keatley’s life is anything but perfect. Yet despite a rare bone disorder cursing her with the body of a ten year old, a dead mom, and being a target for the school bullies, things could be worse.
She owes her life to her scientist father and the butterfly hormone racing through her blood.
But the discovery of unexpected and horrifying side effects means her dreams of leaving the small-minded town of Springs, Georgia to become a scientist have all but shattered.
Her world becomes a prison and her existence a life sentence.
The only thing keeping Bethany fighting is her true love, football star Jeremiah Wright—if only he felt the same way. And now, with the clock ticking and her future uncertain, courage and the determination to survive must drive her decisions.
But nature has other plans, a sacrifice for Bethany’s life.
In this award-winning incredible debut, Rebecca Carpenter brings to life the “haunting and twisted story” of one girl and an ending that will blow your mind.

HER BLOOD. HER LOVE. HER FREEDOM.
“How many of my sins will have to be paid for in blood?”
Sixteen-year-old Bethany Keatley finally has the healthy body and looks she’s always desired. But the price she’s had to pay has left her traumatized.
The only thing making her battle on is the memory of that kiss with Jeremiah.
Now miles from him and living in Florida with an aunt she's never met, shocking revelations about her parents are too much to bear. After collapsing from exhaustion and shock, Bethany wakes in a hospital bed awaiting test results—results that might lead to the discovery of her unusual butterfly blood.
But that’s the least of Bethany’s concerns when the doctor informs her she’s infected with a parasite and without immediate treatment she’ll die.
Too young to refuse and too weak to fight back, Bethany’s life once again hangs in the balance. Yet her scientific knowledge and suspicious nature lead her to unravel a horrifying web of lies.
Will nature intervene again, demanding another payment?
In this stunning sequel to the award-winning BUTTERFLY BONES, Rebecca Carpenter raises the stakes and offers up an intense and heartbreaking ride that will leave you shocked to the core.

I love these books so much. Rebecca is such a talented writer and this series offers you so much more than a lot of the YA on bookshelves. It has science, it has romance, it has creepiness, horror, shocks, twists, and courage. And it's jam-packed with so much beauty. I highly recommend you get your hands on this series if you love something a little bit different.
