Cover Reveal/#Giveaway : Drawn by Chris Ledbetter

Date: 06/08/15
Artist: Jay Aheer

from Goodreads:

between the sweltering fall landscape of Wilmington, NC beaches and southern
illusions and expectations, all sixteen year-old Cameron Shade thinks about is
art. That, and for Farrah Spangled to view him as more than just a friend.
Cameron longs to win her heart through art.

After several warm interactions with Farrah, including painting together at the
beach, Cameron discovers just how complex Farrah’s life is with her boyfriend
and her family. Following a tense run-in with Farrah’s father, she forbids
Cameron to ever speak to her again, but Cameron’s convinced there’s more behind
the request.

To impress Farrah with a last-ditch effort, Cameron sketches her portrait. But
the sketchbook he uses hides a dark secret. Farrah’s now in grave danger
because the sketch he drew of her siphons her real-life’s soul into the
sketchbook. Cameron now has twenty days to extract Farrah. To save her, he must
draw himself into the book.

If he fails… they both die.

the Author

Ledbetter grew up in Durham, NC before moving to Charlottesville, VA in 11th
grade. After high school, he attended Hampton University where he promptly
"walked-on" to the best drum line in the CIAA. And, without any prior
percussion experience. He carried the bass drum for four years, something his
back is not very happy about now.

After a change of heart and major, he enrolled in Old Dominion University and
earned his degree in Business Administration. He's worked in various managerial
and marketing capacities throughout his life. While teaching high school for
six years in Culpeper, VA, he taught business management, business law,
marketing, and sports marketing, and also coached football.

He has walked the streets of Los Angeles and New York City, waded in the waters
of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and climbed Diamond Head crater on Hawaii
and rang in the New Year in Tokyo, Japan. But he dreams of one day visiting
Greece and Italy.

He's a proud member of SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and
Illustrators) and a strong supporter of the Need for Diverse Books. As a self-described,
young reluctant reader, he writes young adult stories specifically to reach
other reluctant readers. As a participant in the prestigious Nevada SCBWI
Mentor Program, he was blessed to be mentored by Suzanne Morgan Williams, 2012
SCBWI member of the year.

He now lives in Wilmington, NC with his family, including three cats.
