Cheryl Rainfield - STAINED - The New Cover! (and a sneak peek!)

I did a cover reveal for STAINED by Cheryl Rainfield a while back. The cover has since changed, so today I thought I would introduce you to the new one. With my schedule full, I missed the cover reveal date on this one...but I'd like to spread the word about STAINED all the same!

Before the cover, though, how about some advance praise for STAINED!

"Powerful. I raced through it, wanting to know if Sarah would find a way to escape both her captor and her self-doubts. A real nail-biter!" ~ April Henry, New York Times-bestselling author of The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die
"A compelling, gutting, and ultimately triumphant read. You won't want to stop turning pages -- Or blink. Or breathe. -- until you reach the very last one." ~ Jennifer Brown, award-winning author of Hate List

"STAINED is dark, tense and gripping; a triumph of one girl's heart, soul and will to survive. Sarah's strength during her descent into terror kept me reading way past bedtime!" ~ Laura Wiess, critically acclaimed author of Such a Pretty Girl

I definitely would have taken STAINED out at Net Galley, if not for my hectic schedule of late. I plan on reading it at its release. Rainfield's work has NOT disappointed yet!

Now, here's the cover. You can look for STAINED in October, 2013. It promises to be a great read.

You can check out ALL of Cheryl Rainfield's books at Amazon on her AUTHOR PAGE.

What the heck! How about a sneak excerpt from STAINED?! I know you want to peek! Here you go:

"Today is the day I’ve been waiting for my entire life—the beginning of normal.

                I reach for the latest Seventeen and flip through its glossy pages until I find the perfect face. The girl is pretty, with wide green eyes, hollow cheekbones, and full, pouty lips. But what I notice most is her smooth, unblemished skin. It’s perfect. I cut the photo out and stick it above my bed, in the last of the space. Now I can’t even see the sunlight yellow of my walls—but the confidence that shines in these faces is even brighter. And today I’m going to get so much closer to that. I don’t care how much the treatments hurt; it’ll be worth it. It can’t hurt as much as the stares and rude comments I get every day.

                I know I shouldn’t let people’s ignorance get to me. Mom’s always telling me I’m beautiful; that it’s what’s inside that counts. But she’s not living in the real world. Sure, whether you’re kind or good matters. But pretty people automatically get better treatment. Ugly people get ignored ... if they’re lucky. And me, I get stares, taunts, or people going out of their way to pretend they don’t see me.

I try to think of it as fuel for my comic scripts. All heroes have to go through personal trauma before they find their true strength—and most of them feel like outsiders even after they do."

STAY TUNED! I will post a couple videos soon about STAINED. (-:
