Near Witch Cover Reveal

Beauteous blog readers (yes, I'm looking at you), I have something very exciting to share with you today. By now, I'm sure that a handful of you have heard of The Near Witch and its lovely author, Victoria Schwab (click here to follow her on Twitter). Well, the video below contains the cover of

Although it's not out until August 2, 2011, The Near Witch is already available for pre-order on Amazon. In case you still aren't enticed by this gorgeous, cover, take a look at the synopsis. A huge congratulations to Victoria! I'm ridiculously excited to get my hands on this book, and I have a feeling you should be too.

The Near Witch is only an old story told to frighten children.
If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for company.
There are no strangers in the town of Near.

These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life. But when an actual stranger—a boy who seems to fade like smoke—appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.

The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion. Still, he insists on helping Lexi search for them. Something tells her she can trust him.

As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does Lexi’s need to know—about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about the history of this nameless boy.

Part fairy tale, part love story, Victoria Schwab’s debut novel is entirely original yet achingly familiar: a song you heard long ago, a whisper carried by the wind, and a dream you won’t soon forget.
