Cover Reveal: Conjure

Today the Book Pile joins the cover reveal club, and there's a giveaway too!

Conjure by Lea Nolan is a paranormal YA out September 24.

From the publisher:

"About CONJURE: Be careful what you search for…

Emma Guthrie expects this summer to be like any other in the South Carolina Lowcountry--hot and steamy with plenty of beach time alongside her best friend and secret crush, Cooper Beaumont, and Emma’s ever-present twin brother, Jack. But then a mysterious eighteenth-century message in a bottle surfaces, revealing a hidden pirate bounty. Lured by the adventure, the trio discovers the treasure and unwittingly unleashes an ancient Gullah curse that attacks Jack with the wicked flesh-eating Creep and promises to steal Cooper’s soul on his approaching sixteenth birthday.

When a strange girl appears, bent on revenge; demon dogs become a threat; and Jack turns into a walking skeleton; Emma has no choice but to learn hoodoo magic to undo the hex, all before summer—and her friends--are lost forever."
And here's the cover:

I have a bit of a fascination with stories involving Gullah legends and hoodoo, voudun, you get the picture, so this book has been on my list since I first heard about it. On the cover,I like that the girl is kind of hidden behind the tree with the tangle of roots and leafless branches. I like that blue tone too. It's dark but not too dark.
