NOW AND FOR NEVER has a cover! And a CONTEST!!

And it’s a BEAUTY!!!
Check it out. Once again the fine folks at Razorbill/ Penguin Canada have gone waaaaayy above and beyond with cover art for the third installment in the NEVER trilogy. 
It’s perfect. It’s pretty. It’s purple.

Past and present collide on the high seas when Clare and Allie hurtle back in time once more in a perilous attempt to retrieve Marcus Donatus—Allie’s blast-from-the-past crush—and put an end, once and for all, to the Time Monkey Shenanigans. But when Clare and Allie unexpectedly find themselves temporal stowaways on a Roman warship full of looted Celtic gold, sailing straight for the heart of a magic-fuelled maelstrom, there’s not much they can do but hang on for the ride—and hope Milo can tap into the Druid lore trapped in his genius brain to help bring them home, before it’s too late. The only thing that’s going to save Clarinet Reid and Allie McAllister now is if they join forces with old enemies, new loves… and unexpected friends.

NOW AND FOR NEVER will hit bookstore shelves in April of this year and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Come join Clare, Allie, Milo, Marcus and the rest of the Time Monkeys on the wildest ride of their lives!

Here are all three of these beauties side by side! Collect them all! And, while you’re at it…

    I loved the first book so much, and would love to actually own it along with the second one (which I haven’t read and really want to). Great series, Lesley!

  5. Scoopriches says:

    What will happen? What will happen?? What will happen??? These questions, in both this time period and the other one (that one with the Romans) are still plaguing us from the first two! We demand satisfaction, or at least more bog bodies…

    Gorgeous cover, Lesley! My daughter Ali gave a great big “SQUEE!!” to see it and she can’t wait to read it.

    Will the e-book version of this be released at the same time as the physical version? I have the first and second books in both formats. There are my favourite rereads, although its much easier to recall something with the e-book version 🙂 Plus I can “highlight” away my my favourite passages from the two books and keep the physical copy in “pristine” condition on my bookshelf. I saw that the paper back is on pre-order on the Amazon site to be released on May 27 2014. Hopefully, the e-book version will be on pre-order soon on KOBO site too. Do you also have these books as Audiobooks?
