Well, book fans.....

Here it is! This blog is absolutely the very first ever glimpse of the cover for my new novel. Night Road will be available for sale in late March 2011. Who wants to guess what it's about, based on the cover???

What do you think?

Can wait to hear...

Aloha for now,

I'm thinking a mysterious disappearance. Either way, I'm buying it!!

p.s. I WONDERED if there would be a sequel to The Passage... definitely left me wanting to know more... there are 11 other groups of The Many...

Wow -- What a cool cover! Very different than others. For me the cover has a dark edge to it due to the title and the design. I wonder if it is about a relationship gone wrong. It also makes me wonder about a journey into darkness, secrecy, and someone being left behind. I really don't feel transformation in the cover, but wrong choices and maybe death.

In other words -- I find it intriguing, the title captivating and I will look forward to reading it.

I can hear you laughing outloud as we all guess!

It's nearly 1:07 a.m. and I got out of bed because something struck me and I couldn't get it out of my mind. There is a purity about the girl in the fore front. The girl may represent lost innocence. She's has pursued a path of secrecy that may have stolen her innocence, and family don't know or approve. She isn't dead. The couple are walking towards her, not away. As if there is some embracing of what has occured.

You are going to drive us nuts! And, I know you're having fun!

I agree that it looks mysterious. Love the midnight colors. I will be anxiously awaiting the release.

I heard The Passage is the first of a trilogy (though it's blurry where I heard that now). It's also why I didn't start it right away.

I think the new cover is beautiful. It was so dark when I first looked at it, but I love the blue. It reminds me of a dark Firefly Lane. Will the book be as dark as the cover? I can't wait. I want to know more! :)

I thought supernatural, spirits, etc... at first. Then, after studying, think the girl on the front looks similar to a horse with a flowing mane.

Who knows? Can't wait to find out!

I knew YOU would know, Kim. LOL

By the way, if you look at Amazon you will get a brief synopsis...but only if you want to know. I often like to read a sure bet author with no knowledge ahead of time about they story line.

Nice! The title *does* pique the curiosity!
The cover is striking. I like the contrast of the somewhat sinister unidentified throat against the cozy companionship of the two figures up the road, and mirroring that, the contrast of her bright yellow hair against the cool shades of twilight. I like the serpentine road, and that the line of the girls hair is repeated with the line of the road.
The upper third reminds me of Firefly's cover which brings me to Kate's and Tully's midnight bicycle ride--that's probably not intentional, but a cool side affect--kind of the way in some movies actor's previous movies are referenced--although in that case it usually IS intentional.
Nice, Kristin!

i am thinking its going to be about a secret meeting at night between two who shouldnt be together, or something like that.. looking forward to it though.. i still have yet to read Winter Garden but planning on getting to it this week!!

My first impression of the book is that it's darker in nature, it involves a long and twisting path to get from the past to a future that works. The girl on the cover represents something - perhaps a character who is stuck in time or represents something lost.

Then I read the blurb on Book Reporter. :) I think this is going to be an amazing story.

It looks mysterious as everyone else said. I went to BookReporter.com and entered the contest for the AR edition. I also read the synopsis, so I won't put that here just in case. It sounds great, Kristin! I can't wait to get the unabridged audiobook next year!

I agree with Sarah, I think Kristen went the vampire route...I hope I'm wrong though since I love the family feel of her books. But either way I would probably read it just the same.

The New Cover looks amazing!
I will be waiting patiently to get a copy as soon as it comes out!!

Questions Everyone...
Someone said that there is a Mystic Lake movie?!? True or False? Just wondering because if there was, I would LOVE to see it? & Another question, has any of her books went to movie?

Yay! I've devoured everything you've written, patiently waiting for your next novel. I'm excited!

As for guessing the theme of the book from the cover. I'll take a gander: The Night Road is a road where to potential soul mates meet in the evening, possibly via fender bender. They know from that first interlude they're destined to be together but part ways that evening regardless. They spend a year thinking about the other. In the mean time their lives are intertwined more than they know. Inevitably they meet again exactly a year to the date later on the Night Road. ;^}

Hi Molly,
I don't think it's been made into a movie. I wonder if that person meant the movie, "Mystic *River*" with Sean Penn.

I think it is about a journey after the accidental death due to a drunk driver.

Oh I do not care for The Passage at all. Cronin writes well, great idea about how the world almost ends and begins again but vampires...please let's let go of the vampire genre.

Thanks for the warning, I'm not to keen on that theme either. It's in my trunk --I thought I'd get to read it when I finished "Empire Falls" but then I remembered someone handed me a book called "The Art of Racing in the Rain" a couple of months ago, so to be polite must read that...then another friend who I bought a copy of "Innocent Traitor" for reciprocated with something, so I must read that next. So much to read and so little time!

OMG! I won at least one of the advanced reader copies from BookReporter.com! I just got an e-mail from Stephen Bedford, the advertising/promotion manager of Bookreporter.com.. His e-mail said that the way that I answered the questions about my reading habits, etc.. made them think that I would be a good fit to receive the book and give feedback. I can't WAIT!!!!

Hey Kristin, does this mean that I will get a signed edition of this new book? I really hope so!

Thanks so much for the mention of the web site for the contest! Woo Hoo!! I can't wait to get it!

'Recently finished "The Art of Racing in the Rain". If you like dogs, and the notion of one wanting to reincarnate as a human next time around isn't offensive, you'll probably love it. I did! (You may have already read it though--I'm kind of slow on the up-take here, it came out two years ago.)

Hope everyone is well,

"Poyson Garden" by Karen Harper was the book I read in trade for "Innocent Traitor" (by Allison Weir) both are Historical Fictions in the post King Henry the VIII period.

Oh, is that what the book is about? I generally don't read animal books because they always make me cry. I'll have to give it a shot.

I just read Water for Elephants which I liked but didn't love. I also read A Good Indian Wife which I also liked, liked more once I knew it was a debut novel. I'm reading Love is a Four-Legged Word which is a little light romance just to mix it up a little this month.

Good to read all the recommendations on here because I feel they're so varied and all quality books.

Fabulous cover, Kristin. My guess would be a mystery. Whatever it is, I want a copy.

Could it be a continuation of Firefly Lane?

My first thought was vampire. Just because the way the girl is baring her neck and the night sky behind. That's what I immediately thought. Although I haven't read a lot of your books I still don't see you going that fictional. I tryed to come up with something else but that's all I got!

And I just want to clarify that the only reason I haven't ready many of your books Is because I just found you. I love the four I've read and will read more!

I know you just wanted to know what we thought of the cover but I have to say I cryed all the way through True Colors. I love when a book does that to me. I was so in love with Vivi and Dallas and their son!

Can't wait to read Night Road! I just finished Winter Garden and just LOVED it. It gives the reader a true sense of what people went through during those times of war and their survival. Keep the books coming Kristin!
