Ashlee Willis -- All New Cover Reveal!

Dear Imps, I am excited to have the opportunity to present the new face of Ashlee Willis' debut novel, The Word Changers. Many of you have already read and enjoyed this story. And those of you who haven't, well, you're in for a magical treat! Either way, I hope you will all enjoy this gorgeous new cover. Are you ready?

 About the Book:


Escaping from the turmoil of her home, fifteen-year-old Posy finds herself at her usual haunt: the library. When she chooses an unfamiliar book from the shelf, she doesn't devour its words as she usually does . . .

Its words devour her.

Posy is pulled into the pages of a fairy tale in turmoil. Characters whisper of rebellion against their Plot. And Posy must find a lost princess whose role in the story is crucial, before her own part in the book comes to a horrible end.

With the haughty Prince Kyran as a reluctant companion, Posy ventures past the Borders of the Plot, into the depths of the treacherous Wild Land forest beyond. Secrets are buried there, dangerous and deadly.

Yet the darkest secret of all is the one Posy carries within herself.

Soon it's clear that finding the lost princess is the least of Posy's concerns. The Author of the book must be found. His Plot must be put to rights again, the characters reminded of whom they were first created to be. Only then will the True Story be written, both for Posy and for the tale she has now become a part of.

WOOHOOO!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so thrilled with this new cover. That new cover is going to make any fantasy lover stop and pick it up....and they'll be lost from there, just like Posy.

A wonderful book, everybody! I owe my love of centaurs to it! :D

Deborah O'Carroll said...

I loved the old one too, but OHHHHHH MY GOODNESS! SO MUCH GORGEOUS!!! <3 And the fact that I already know that the story inside is EQUALLY beautiful only makes it better! :D But if I hadn't read it, it would positively go on my TBR list/wishlist so fast it wouldn't be deemed possible! XD AAAAAAAAAAAHHHH I LOVE IT! ^_^

Ashlee Willis said...

Thanks so much, guys and girls! What wonderful compliments!!

@Deborah O'Carroll: Unbearably sweet, like always!! :)

@notallbymylonesome: I AM working on two books right now. However, they aren't sequels to The Word Changers :( I definitely haven't ruled out a sequel to it one day, but these other two books are taking up every spare moment of my time these days!

Gillian Bronte Adams said...

Love the new cover! So gorgeous and whimsical and fairy tale-ish. Definitely something I would pick up off the shelf!

If I was walking along in a bookstore and I saw that cover, I would have picked it up immediately and read the back. That is a gorgeous cover!

Goodness, this cover is gorgeous. Love it! :)

Georgina said...

The new cover is simply gorgeous! I've been waiting for a chance (read: the money) to buy a copy of your novel and now I really want to get my hands on it. :D It's so pretty!

Ana @ Butterflies of the Imagination said...

I haven't read this book before, but I've heard wonderful things about it and the blurb makes it seem like just the book I would like to read. Characters journeying within a book? Um, yes please. And the cover is gorgeous.

Ashlee Willis said...

Aw, thanks so much, girls! And I hope you get the chance to read it! Now and then I get around the whole "purchasing a book I want to read" thing by requesting my library buys it instead. Nine times out of ten, they oblige! It's worth a try, at least ;) Thanks again for the kind comments!!

Meredith said...

Congratulations, Ms. Willis. I so want to read the book and have placed it on the wish list of www.bookshare.org, a site that produces Braille electronic versions of books. In fact, I've put it on the wish list twice since they only keep requests on it for two months. The premise of the story is excellent. Keep up the outstanding work. God bless you.

Amanda Richardson said...

Amazing cover for an amazing book! I can see someone making a movie from it one day! Can't wait for your next novel!

Kristene Tew said...

Your book sounds like an exciting adventure that I want to take. I love the cover of it, it looks beautiful! :)

Charii Skelton said...

Most beautiful of covers! One of my favorites for sure!! I very much look forward to reading your book, as Posy's story sounds like one I would hate to miss out on. :D

Ashlee Willis said...

I appreciate everyone's wonderful comments!!

I must say that I owe a lot of the success of this awesome cover to Anne Elisabeth's very kind advice and help throughout the process, which was a new one for me! She has much more insight into cover art, the dos and don'ts and details, than I have, and very patiently answered my many questions and requests for opinions along the way. And now here she is hosting my cover reveal (for the second time, no less!). I simply can't say enough good things about her ... but I'm sure I don't need to convince any of YOU of her sweet character!! :)

Thanks so much once again, Anne Elisabeth :D

Caryl Kane said...

WOW! Ashlee, the cover is epic!

Jennette Mbewe said...

LOVE the new cover!

Kelsey said...

The new cover art is beautiful!

Becky said...

That is a beautiful cover! The color, the design, the book...and the owl! I love the owl! The cover and the summary really makes me want to read the book.

I've had the same results as Ms. Willis with our library. If I put in a request, they usually will purchase it. One of our librarians told me that they love to see their patrons requests for books. Otherwise they have to go with what is popular in the larger market, which isn't always good.

Emma Clifton said...

Oooh, the new cover is lovely!

Shantelle H. said...

Makes me want to read it over again!! :) :)

Blessings!
