THE STARS FELL SIDEWAYS by Cassandra Marshall *Cover Reveal and Contest*
I'm personally thrilled to be part of the cover reveal for THE STARS FELL SIDEWAYS. Cassandra Marshall is a wonderful author and editor extraordinaire. THE STARS FELL SIDEWAYS is her exciting debut, available October 1st. I've had the pleasure of being a beta reader on earlier versions of this story and absolutely fell in love. Who knew corsets and steam could be so tantalizing?
But enough is enough. You came here to see the cover, so take a gander. ((0.0)) *so shiny*
Here is a what you need to know about THE STARS FELL SIDEWAYS:
Alison Arroway takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’. She has to, or she won’t get paid. Alison is a stunt double for pampered teen actress Pomegranate and when the director takes the shoot to Portugal, Alison is anything but thrilled to be rooming with Pom. But getting to hang around teen hearthrob Erik? Now that’s a plus.
Erik invites both girls on a sunset boat trip and Alison manages to have a decent time. Until the storm hits and the boat is shipwrecked on a small island, leaving Erik missing and the boat captain dead.
In the morning light, Alison and Pom find themselves on the lost island of Atlantis. Only one problem: now that the girls know the secret of the island, the Atlanteans don’t want them to leave. They're stuck with corsets, full-skirted dresses, and the strange steam-driven contraptions that are just a way of life for the islanders.
When a plot by the ruthless army Captain to take over the island and declare himself General over all emerges, an underground group promises to return the girls to the mainland if they can help stop him. They'll go through a mountain, literally, to find the Book of Blue, a book that will explain how to make ‘the stars fall sideways' in order to save the day and earn their freedom.
THE STARS FELL SIDEWAYS, a YA Steampunkish fantasy, coming October 1st from MolliePup Press!
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE *said in manner of Slap Chop guy from infomercial*
