It’s day 9 of our Spring ’17 cover reveals! Today we’re showing off the covers of Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean edited by Kirsty Murray, Payal Dhar, and Anita R0y, as well as Blacksouls , the sequel to Nicole Castroman’s Blackhearts.
Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean edited by Kirsty Murray, Payal Dhar, and Anita Roy
About the book:
A post-apocalyptic Little Red Riding Hood. Girls and boys turning the tables on creepy old cat-callers. Female pirates rescuing abused women. A futuristic cooking show.
These are just a few of the stories told in Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean, a feminist speculative fiction collection, born of a collaboration between Australian and Indian writers. Finding themselves inspired to action after crimes against women dominated national conversations, the editors of this collection paired writers and illustrators from India and Australia together to write stories, graphic novels, and even a play that reimagines what girls can and be and see themselves as.
The results are stunning. Some of the authors worked together, some wrote stories along a similar theme, and all told, 17 stories emerged which blend magical realism and self-confidence in a touching and inspiring way.
Blood Family will be out on the shelves March 7, 2017!
Blacksouls by Nicole Castroman
While technically not a reveal, we wanted to make sure we showed off Nicole Castroman’s next book along with our other Spring ’17 covers! You can check out the original cover reveal here over on USA Today’s Happily Ever After blog!
About the book:
The pirate Blackbeard was known for striking fear into the hearts of even the bravest sailors. But once he was just a young man who dreamed of abandoning his rigid life to chase adventure in faraway lands. Nothing could stop him—until he met, Anne, the one girl who would change everything.
In this sequel to Blackhearts, Edward “Teach” Drummond, is setting sail to the Caribbean as first mate on the most celebrated ship in the British fleet—until he turns full on mutinous. Sailing on the same blue waters, Anne barely makes it to the islands of the Caribbean, where she hopes to learn more about her ancestry. What she doesn’t expect is a port filled with lawless criminals and danger lurking around every corner.
With the mutinous Teach in chains, Anne must brave the perilous, pirate haven of Nassau in order to save not only Teach, but her new friends on the island. But when Teach is offered a deal—capture a notorious pirate or waste away in the Governor’s dungeons–what he discovers brings him closer and closer to becoming a pirate himself. And further away from Anne who is kept hostage in exchange for Teach’s loyalty to the Governor.
Now Teach must decide if he should risk his own soul to save Anne. Even if that means turning into a ruthless pirate.
Even if that means turning into Blackbeard.
Blacksouls will be out on the shelves February 7, 2017!
