Cover Reveal: Shades of the Future by Suzanne Lilly

This isn’t my usual posting day, as you know, but I’m so excited to be part of the big reveal for author Suzanne Lilly’s debut, Shades of the Future, due out July 2012 from Honey Creek Books. Suzanne has been my friend and critique partner for more than five years and I couldn’t be happier for her!

Here it is:

Gorgeous. I love it!

From Suzanne:

I’m doing a simultaneous cover reveal here, at the Honey Creek Books blog, and on my Suzanne Lilly author webpage. Thank you to Kim Jacobs for designing such an eyecatching cover.

You can be one of the first to read an excerpt from Shades of the Future by sending a blank email to

Now here’s the blurb from the back cover:

What would you do if you could see your future? Would you try to change it? What if you couldn’t? Sometimes this thing we call “the gift” is really a curse.

Mariah Davis loves animals, running, and her hunk of a boyfriend, Kevin Creamer. Everything looks bright for her until the day she finds a pair of sunglasses that allow her to see the future.

When she glimpses a disaster looming, she tries to avoid it but fails. She has a car accident that lands her in a wheelchair, smashing her hopes for a running scholarship to the veterinary program at Ohio State University. She pushes Kevin away, thinking he’ll want to end their relationship now that she can’t walk.

Will she ever learn to trust and love again? She could search for an answer in the sunglasses. But she’s afraid what they reveal might destroy her.

I’ll be on book tour in July, and I’ll be giving away a pair of designer sunglasses to one lucky commenter. Subscribe to my blog so you’ll be able to follow me on tour and enter every day to win.

Wishing you many hours of happy reading!

Doesn’t it sound amazing? And how cool is that picture-in-the-shades thing?

  1. What a neat concept for a book~ and the cover complements the premise completely! Thanks for sharing this 🙂

  2. Oh WoW! Congrats Suzanne and thanks for sharing Vicki!!!

  3. Interesting cover–I like the hidden image behind the Kanye glasses. 😉

  4. Love this premise. I think I’d be way too chicken to use the glasses, unless they showed you winning lottery numbers. The cheater cheater pumpkin eater side of me might reconsider in that case. The cover is cool!

  5. What a premise! Sounds like contemporary fantasy, but then takes such a dramatic real-life turn!

  6. The hidden image in the glasses is cool.

  7. Hi Ciara! Congrats on your latest release!

  8. Catherine Johnson

    What is that picture in the shades? Sounds like a page turner. Exciting, congrats, Suzanne!

  9. Good luck to Suzanne and best wishes for Shades of the Future!
