Mermaids, Murder, and Mayhem: The Vicious Deep Cover Reveal Giveaway!

Hey everyone! I am THRILLED beyond belief to be a part of the unveiling of Zoraida's cover for her debut novel, The Vicious Deep. But instead of showing you the full cover today, I'll only be showing you a sliver of what's to come; however, there will be a giveaway....right now.  Zoraida has been kind enough to put together a Coney Island surprise prize pack for one lucky winner :) Why is it Coney Island-themed, you ask? Because Coney Island is the setting of her novel! And just to refresh your memory, here is the synopsis.....

Set against the backdrop of a Coney Island summer comes The Vicious Deep, the story of sixteen year old Tristan Hart whose life is turned upside down when the mermaids make an unscheduled return to land in search of their new king.

When a sudden storm pulls Tristan from lifeguard duty into a deadly riptide, he discovers what he really is—a prince of the Sea Court. Turns out, his girlfriend hopping and talents as a swimmer aren’t caused by his teenage prime hormones after all.

In this modern Arthurian tale with a twist, when all a guy wants to do is get The Girl and enjoy the freak show that is a Coney Island summer, Tristan has to fight for his life, the lives of his friends, and his humanity, if he still wants it, as he’s caught in a race for a throne that is as ancient as the gods.
Um, is anyone else feeling that desperate I-have-to-have-this-why-can't-I-read-this-NOW feeling? Because I am.... 

Here's my cover teaser. The first one is over at Zoraida's blog.

A pair of lips. A trickle of blood...  

Interested? Well, good. Because now we can get to the giveaway portion of this post! Zoraida will be sending someone a Coney Island surprise prize pack--and the coolest thing about the prize is that it'll be from The Lola Star Store--a place where one of the main characters of TVD often shops! To enter, please fill out the form here. This giveaway is open to the US only & will end on July 31st. The winner will be announced August 1st AND the full cover will be revealed that same day. Also, the day before the winner is announced I'll have an interview up with the lovely author so stay tuned! :)

Bio: Zoraida Córdova was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador and raised in Hollis, Queens, which means she should've been a hip-hop celebrity instead of a writer. She likes shiny things like Christmas, merdudes, and the skyline at night. She lives in New York City.
