Allen has a new book, Lost Lake, being released February 11, 2014. Fans of hers have been waiting a long time for this one; 3 years. 3 very long years.
Enthusiasm and speculation for the cover of Lost Lake had grown so much that on July 5th St. Martin’s Press decided to create a Flock to Unlock for readers on Goodreads. The goal was if 500 people added LOST LAKE to their “to-read” shelf, St. Martin’s Press would agree to release the cover early!
The response was overwhelming, with over 1500 people marking the yet-to-be-released-until-next-year book onto their reading shelves, within 3 days of the announcement.
So…St Martin’s Press kept their word.
Isn’t it absolutely stunning!
Sarah Allen Addison writes: Here are a few fun facts about the cover:
*The cover is an original drawing by Rosie Sanders. She is a renowned botanical artist known for her work with apples, which is strangely appropriate, especially for those fans of the apple-thowing tree in Garden Spells.
*This is my first book without a person on the cover.
*The foliage is all native to southern Georgia, where the book is set.
