A-Z Challenge: C is for COVER REVEAL!!!

It's C day which is perfect because it's also the day of the big COVER REVEAL for a book I'm super excited about! It's by Michelle Merrill, one of my CP's made of extraordinary. Here's her bio:

Michelle Merrill loves kissing her hubby, snuggling her kids, eating candy, reading books, and writing first drafts. She names her computers after favorite fictional characters and fictional characters after favorite names. To learn more about her, visit

I've read this book twice and it is super good people, super good. Are you ready for the cover? Because it is beautiful:

 Gorgeous, amirite?

Now you want to know what the book is about, dontcha? Here's the blurb:

All Kate wants is to live. Battling cystic fibrosis is hard enough, dying from it is even harder. When her mom moves them closer to the hospital in the middle of her senior year, Kate’s determined to isolate herself—saving everyone the trouble of befriending a dying girl. It’s a difficult task when cheerful optimist Giana insists on being Kate’s friend. 

Kate’s resolve falters even more when curly-haired Kyler captivates her with his sweet melodies. As her emotional walls collapse, Kate realizes the people she’s been pushing away may be the ones giving her a reason to live. But it might be too late.

NOTE: Half of all proceeds will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

CHANGING FATE comes out on May 8, 2014. You can find Michelle on Twitter here on Facebook here or at her blog here. Can't wait to see this book as a real book! Congrats Michelle!

And for my C song of the day... one of my favorite Michael Buble songs, and one I could imagine Kyler singing. 
Close Your Eyes by Michael Buble
