The Dead and Buried Giveaway & New Cover Alert!

The Dead and Buried comes out three months from today! Yay! I’m so excited for my new baby to head out into the world. It’s part murder mystery, part ghost story, with a dash of romance, and new characters that I hope you’ll adore as much as I do. (For the official summary and some hot blurb action, click here.) To celebrate, I’m having a giveaway. But before we get to that…I’m also sharing its new cover. Yes, as sometimes happens in publishing for marketing/sales reasons, The Dead and Buried has been given a fancy new cover. (This will be for the hardcover releasing January 1st, 2013. The ARC will have the old cover.)

You ready?

Here we go…

(clicky clicky for bigger size)

I think it’s stunning and eye catching! Feel free to post it on your blog, FB, or anywhere you like. (I would really love this—share, share, share!)

Now, back to the contest. I’m giving away a signed ARC, a $10 iTunes gift card to go along with my ghostly playlist, and a Jade necklace (which will mean a lot more after you read the book). Cool, right?

THIS CONTEST IS OVER AND THE WINNER IS LILIANA!

All you have to do to enter is post a comment below.

However, you can get additional entries for:
+1 tweeting this: RT @Kim_Harrington THE DEAD AND BURIED Giveaway & New Cover: http://bit.ly/STyv9A Please RT!

+5 featuring the new cover in a post on your blog

Please let me know everything you did in your comment so I’ll know how many points to assign to you!

The last day to enter is Sunday, 10/14/12. I’ll go through all the entries, use Random.org, and choose a winner on Monday, 10/15/12. International is okay!

You can add The Dead and Buried to your Goodreads shelf here.

And if you'd like to pre-order the hardcover, you can do that now and I will love you forever!

Thanks and good luck!

  1. I cannot wait to read the new book! I'll be honest and say I like the old cover a bit more. The new one is just another dead girl cover to me. I'm sorry!! But it won't matter anyway because I'm going to buy it and read it!

    I also tweeted about this, so 2 points total!

  17. I am really looking forwad to this one - and I read mostly MG books right now. So having read a lot of MG books I kind of see where the publisher is going with the new cover. Although I liked the "ghost story" feel to the old one, this one screams edgy/teen/YA book and will probably hook more readers. I'm glad they kept the same font and title work b/c I really liked that part!

  18. I love the cover! I liked the old cover, but this one seems more YA-ish. The old one seemed kind of MG to me. I can definitely see why marketing changed to this cover! I really like it!

  23. I loved Clarity and Perception so I'm really looking forward to reading The Dead and Buried. I actually like the old cover better even if it did look more like the cover of a MG novel than a YA one.
