When We Were Worthy: Cover Reveal!

Today’s post by Marybeth Whalen and Ariel Lawhon | @MarybethWhalen and @ArielLawhon

A cover must boil down an entire novel into one image– a picture that says “read me,” that communicates the tone of the story, and gives you an idea of what the story is about in a single glance. To say we’re crazy about the cover for Marybeth’s new novel, WHEN WE WERE WORTHY, would be a huge understatement. We adore this cover!

WHEN WE WERE WORTHY is out 9/12/17 so mark your calendars– or, better yet, preorder your copy today. About the book:

A win brought them together, but loss may tear them apart.

When the sound of sirens cuts through a cool fall night, the small town of Worthy, Georgia, hurtles from triumph to tragedy. Just hours before, they’d watched the Wildcats score a winning touchdown. Now, they’re faced with the deaths of three cheerleaders—their promising lives cut short in a fatal crash. And the boy in the other car—the only one to survive—is believed to be at fault. As rumors begin to fly and accusations spin, allegiances form and long-kept secrets emerge.

At the center of the whirlwind are four women, each grappling with loss, regret, shame, and lies: Marglyn, a grieving mother; Darcy, whose son had been behind the wheel; Ava, a substitute teacher with a scandalous secret; and Leah, a cheerleader who should have been in the car with her friends, but wasn’t. If the truth comes out, will it bring redemption—or will it be their downfall?
