What an awesome surprise! This is my first time seeing Speechless in book form. Let me tell you, these pictures don't capture the cover in its fully glory. The art team at Harlequin Teen did an AMAZING job-- the cover is a shimmery silver with the title embossed, and I think it really pops.
Don't be fooled by my neutral expression (I'm a bit tired and took this picture really quickly with my phone), because I am OVER THE MOON and absolutely in love with the design!
I plan to sit down and give it a read tonight. Let me tell you, it is very surreal seeing your writing in book form. I felt that way with Saving June, and I feel that way now with Speechless. It's one of those moments that makes the teeth-gnashing, hair-pulling process of writing a first draft, writing a second draft, and revising approximately twenty drafts very, very worth it.
Here's a sneak peek of the first page:

I am really, really excited for all of you to get a chance to read Speechless-- if you have, please let me know what you think. I love hearing from readers! If you haven't, check out NetGalley or follow me on twitter, where I may do a giveaway in the near future!
