Cover Reveal and Giveaway of THE STARS FELL SIDEWAYS by Cassandra Marshall

It is the LAST FRANTIC DAY of sewing and packing before Dragon*Con, but I decided to take a little time away from the sewing machine to bring you all this exciting tidbit: the cover for Cassandra Marshall's new book, THE STARS FELL SIDEWAYS.

Ain't it gwageous? I love the starry sky and moon, and the font for the title, which doesn't so much look starry as it looks etched in glass. The reflection on the ocean makes me think that, just maybe, there might be an entire world our protagonist could discover in that ocean.

Hey wait...

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.
