Exclusive Cover Reveal- THE CURE FOR DREAMING by Cat Winters and a Giveaway!




I am sooooooo excited!!!! Today I get the EXCLUSIVE cover reveal for THE CURE FOR DREAMING by Cat Winters releasing in October 14, 2014! I adored Cat's other book and am dying to get my hands on this one myself! Check out the gorgeous cover, synopsis, and enter to win an ARC!




About the book: 

THE CURE FOR DREAMING by Cat Winters
Publisher: Amulet Books
Publication date: October 14, 2014
Olivia Mead is a headstrong, independent girl—a suffragist—in an age that prefers its girls to be docile. It’s 1900 in Oregon, and Olivia’s father, concerned that she’s headed for trouble, convinces a stage mesmerist to try to hypnotize the rebellion out of her. But the hypnotist, an intriguing young man named Henri Reverie, gives her a terrible gift instead: she’s able to see people’s true natures, manifesting as visions of darkness and goodness, while also unable to speak her true thoughts out loud. These supernatural challenges only make Olivia more determined to speak her mind, and so she’s drawn into a dangerous relationship with the hypnotist and his mysterious motives, all while secretly fighting for the rights of women. Winters breathes new life into history once again with an atmospheric, vividly real story, including archival photos and art from the period throughout.

From Cat:

To create the cover for The Cure for Dreaming, the book’s designer, Maria T. Middleton, started with a black-and-white historical photograph of a young hypnotized woman—the same photo that served as my inspiration for the novel’s opening chapter. She then worked her magic on the image, added that gorgeous lettering, and the final result is vibrant, intriguing, very Victorian, slightly odd, and absolutely perfect for the story.

Even more exciting are the cover’s hidden surprises. Look closely at that ornate wallpaper in the background, and you’ll catch hints about the novel’s darker side. See those swirls radiating from the girl’s head? On the final cover, they’ll turn into a hypnotizing special effect. And if you’re wondering what the girl’s feet are up to, you’ll need to wait until the full dust jacket becomes available. The young woman’s body will wrap around to the back of the book. I couldn’t be happier with Maria’s highly clever creation.
