The Iron Quill Cover Premier!!! (Plus INTERNATIONAL Giveaway)

Hello everyone and welcome. The lovely Shelena Shorts recently asked me if I would like to be the one to first reveal the cover for her third book in her YA series, The Pace. This is a favorite series of mine so, of course, I told her I'd be totally honored to get to reveal the cover for The Iron Quill to all of you. Sadly, the book summary is still being worked on so I just have the cover, but hey! It's an awesome cover so be happy. :P


So everyone.......


*drum roll*



The Iron Quill by Shelena Shorts
#3 in The Pace series
Releases August 1st, 2011

Isn't it just GORGEOUS! It is honestly my favorite of all the covers thus far. I love the green and the quill is so pretty with such intricate detailing!

Here are all three covers together (Goodreads links embedded):

Now, to make things even better, I have a giveaway for you all. Annnnd it's INTERNATIONAL!

Thanks to the awesometastic Shelena Shorts I have a signed copy of the first book in her series, The Pace, up for grabs for those who haven't had the chance to start this series and would like to! Below is the synopsis for The Pace.

The Pace Synopsis:
Weston Wilson is not immortal and he is of this world. But, aging is not part of his existence, and eighteen-year-old Sophie Slone is determined to find out why. In doing so, she could also uncover something about her own life expectancy that she may not want to know. Suddenly, immortality will mean everything and nothing all at the same time.

If you want to know more, you can read my review of The Pace HERE!

Contest Details:
~You must FILL OUT THE FORM to gain entry though comments are greatly appreciated.
~Contest is open INTERNATIONALLY
~You have until 11:59PM EST on December 24th, Christmas Eve, to enter. The winner will be chosen and announced soon after. The winner will have 48hrs to reply to my email or another winner will be chosen.

I'll be keeping this contest simple so there will be only one chance for extra entries. You can receive +1 if you leave a significant, meaningful comment on this post.

Hi Briana :)
Thank you for sharing those covers.
They are gorgeous.
I haven't read any of Shelena Shorts books before but the PACE synopsis (thanks for including it!) is interesting.
All the best,

Thank you for sharing! I've seen this book and read several good reviews on The Pace but I never got the chance to buy it.

Precious said...

Awesome cover! It's simple but beautiful nonetheless. I've seen The Pace around the blogosphere and I've read good reviews. But I unfortunately didn't have the chance to buy it. I never stumble upon a copy of it. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

Jessy said...

I love the new cover! I think it's the best out of the series. Thanks for sharing the love.

Misha said...

Melissa said...

Thanks for this giveaway, Briana.

I like the idea of immortal books, but so far the only series I've read is just okay. Would love to check out a new series, hopefully, with better results.

Ammy Belle said...

What a great contest! I have heard of this series and am very interested in reading it! Thanks so much! :D

PinkStuff28 said...

Well , i sure want to read it !
I think i saw The Broken Lake a while ago on a blog , and since then the whole series it's been on my Wishlist :)

Btw....i so love you for making it international.

Vivien said...

I also love this series. I think the cover is just gorgeous and matches the others in the series perfectly!


Unknown said...

I have not yet had the pleasure of reading this series however, I have heared alot of great things and would love to start asap! I have taken a look at your review and was very intriguing! Thank you for this amazing opportunity! It is very much appreciated!


Angela Sharp said...

I am so excited for The Iron Quill, I loved the first two books. The story is so different and creative, it's one of my favorite YA books. Thanks for the giveaway!!!

Myranda said...

I read the first book and loved it! Now I have to go get the second. Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

Pisinat said...

Look at those covers... They are beautiful ! I haven't heard about this series before, but it sounds really good! Thank you for this international giveaway :)

Kari said...

I keep stumbling across this book. After reading your review, I think the time has come for me to finally add it to my wish list! It sounds like a wonderful read, and those covers are pretty much enough to sell me (sad, but true...)

Thank you very much for the giveaway!

Rebecca said...

All three of the books have really nice covers. I've seen them around before but I had no idea they were part of the same series until now.

Unknown said...

Thank you so much for opening this to the international peeps. :))

Mariah said...

I have been meaning to pick up this book for so long, I've heard so many good things about it. I love the new cover!

aprilnichole said...

I'm glad the contest is for the first in the series. I have been wanting to read this one. I like the cover too. It is simple but beautiful. Although where it says "This is my story" makes me think of an authobiography. *shrugs* Maybe it would make sense if I got the chance to read the books.

A Canadian Girl said...

I just checked out your review for it and lol, it does sound like a nice change of pace from what I'm reading these days. I actually haven't heard of this book so thank you for making the giveaway international.

Jessi E. said...

I'd never heard of this before, but it sounds like a very interesting series!

Aleetha said...

This is the first time I see the book. I havent found it at another blog yet. Reading the review makes me want to know more about the book

Thanks for the chance

Mavie said...

Wowwww! It's stunning! It's gorgeous! It's so pretty! I completely agree about it's awesomeness. I read THE PACE and it's freaking amazing. I need to read BROKEN LAKE! :P

Vicky said...

I've heard great things about this book, particularly from a friend of mine who loves this series. I think she has not seen the new book's cover so I'll let her know! Thanks by making this international, maybe I get the chance to read it on my own now!

donnas said...

Erika said...

Those novels look fantastic! I've heard so many great things about Shelena Shorts' books, but I never got a chance to read them. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

PinkStuff28 said...
