Level 2 Cover Reveal Week: Day 1

The wait is finally (almost) over! Since LEVEL 2 will be making its first public appearance next week at Book Expo America, it's time to unveil its stunning cover  ... on Friday, June 1st at noon EST.

I know I promised you I'd reveal it today, but it turns out Simon & Schuster has produced a video that not only takes an exclusive behind the scenes look at the cover shoot, but also reveals the cover at the end.  How's that for cool?

But I do get to reveal a sneak peek of the cover today as well as the official flap copy so you can finally get a better idea of what it's about.  What you're seeing here are elements from the back cover as well as the type. What do you think?






Since her untimely death the day before her eighteenth birthday, Felicia Ward has been trapped in Level 2, a stark white afterlife located between our world and the next. Along with her fellow prisoners, Felicia passes the endless hours downloading memories and mourning what she’s lost—family, friends, and the boy she loved, Neil.

Then a girl in a neighboring chamber disappears, and nobody but Felicia seems to recall she existed in the first place. Something is obviously very wrong. When Julian—a dangerously charming guy Felicia knew in life—comes to offer Felicia a way out, she learns the truth: a rebellion is brewing to overthrow the Morati, the guardians of Level 2.

Felicia is reluctant to trust Julian, but then he promises what she wants the most—to be with Neil again—if only she’ll join the rebels. Suspended between Heaven and Earth, Felicia finds herself in the center of an age-old struggle between good and evil. As memories from her life come back to haunt her, and as the Morati hunt her down, Felicia will discover it’s not just her own redemption at stake… but the salvation of all mankind.
LEVEL 2 is the first book in The Memory Chronicles and will be released by Simon & Schuster BFYR on January 15, 2013. 


Come back tomorrow for the first ever giveaway of (3) ARCs of LEVEL 2!

Then come back Thursday for an interview with cover designer Lizzy Bromley (she of WITHER and FEVER by Lauren DeStefano cover fame).

And of course Friday is the big reveal!  Can't wait until you can finally see it in all its kick-ass glory.

In the meantime, why not add LEVEL 2 to your Goodreads if you haven't already?

aw this is great Lenore! I can't believe it's all becoming reality. I am sorry to miss your book's debut at BEA--it's the first BEA thing I've felt legitimately sad about. :)

I'm super excited to see the full cover! I'm sad, too, though! I was expecting to go to BEA next week and meet you and snag one and stuff happened in my life and now I can't go meet you. *cries* Maybe at another one or a signing (Come back this way...maybe even slightly closer/Philly-ish? ^.~)
