Cover Reveals, Introduction to Month 9 Books, and A Giveaway!

I'm excited to be apart of today's blog tour, as I get to introduce you guys to a new publisher, reveal the rest of Lisa M. Basso's angel series, and host an awesome giveaway. 

Book Synopsis:
A teen girl's attempt to stay out of the mental institution she's made her on-again-off-again home, for the past three years, comes to a halt when she begins seeing things she cannot possibly confess to, for fear of being sent back. But when the things she sees provide clues to recent school murders, Rayna must put aside her fears of being labeled insane, and reveal what she knows in order to save lives.
Change in Release Date:
Month9Books has decided to move the release date of A SHIMMER OF ANGELS by Lisa M. Basso to January 29, 2013. Because of the charity anthology, TWO AND TWENTY DARK TALES: DARK RETELLINGS OF MOTHER GOOSE RHYMES, releasing in October, it is important to Month9Books that the single author titles do not become overshadowed by the anthology’s release. Month9Books believes each title deserves its own moment in the proverbial sun, and strives to make that happen for each author and each book.”
Author Bio:
Lisa M. Basso, author of the ANGEL SIGHT Series, was born and raised in San Francisco, California. She is a lover of books, video games, animals, and baking (not baking with animals though). As a child she would crawl into worlds of her own creation and get lost for hours. Her love for YA fiction started with a simple school reading assignment: S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. When not reading or writing she can usually be found at home with The Best Boyfriend that Ever Lived ™ and her two darling (and sometimes evil) cats, Kitties A and B.
About Month9Books:
