Mindy McGinnis's "Not a Drop to Drink" COVER REVEAL!! WOO!!

Alright, I've been waiting on this cover FOREVER. I mean, the night before it was revealed, I actually dreamt of two possible covers for it!

Mindy McGinnis, the author of NOT A DROP TO DRINK, is BBC over at Agent Query Connect. Let me tell you, she is SO, SO funny, and so helpful. Brighton (another AQC member) and I are known as "the boys" by her because we got Query Critiques from her. She is also hilarious. I mean, just watch this video:

and this one!

SHE IS SO FUNNY! I can keep watching her videos over and over.

ANYWAY. Back to the book cover.

Here it is!

I do not own this picture. Katherine Tegen Books,
Harper Collins, Mindy McGinnis, and basically, the designers
of this book do.

You can win an ARC for this book on this website, where the rest of the details of the books are as well (for example, the summary, which I've copied and pasted below).

Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most importantly, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty, or doesn't leave at all.

Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival, and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand.

But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won’t stop until they get it….

With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a barren world not so different than our own.

DOESN'T THAT SOUND FANTASTIC? I can't wait until September 9th, when it comes out.

Head over to her blog to congratulate her!

Thanks for all your help with AQC, Mindy.
