So, Ming Doyle and I have been friends since we were itty bitty.
Actually, we were already friends for like eight years when this was taken.
Anyway, she's got herself a book out, and I want to celebrate the fact that she's a successful (and pretty bad-ass) illustrator, so I'm giving one away to a lucky entrant.
Illustrated by hot new talent Ming Doyle, Cynthia Leitich Smith’s TANTALIZE is reimagined as a graphic novel— seen through Kieren’s werewolf eyes.
As a hybrid werewolf, Kieren is destined to join an urban Wolf pack and learn to master his shift. Soon, he’ll leave everything behind: home, school, his family, and Quincie, his human best friend . . . who’s beginning to be a whole lot more than a friend. For years, Kieren has managed to keep his desires— and his wolf— at bay. But when the chef at Quincie’ s family restaurant is brutally murdered, Kieren resolves to be there for her, even if it means being framed. Even if it means watching Quincie’s beloved restaurant morph into a vampire lair. But when the new chef begins wooing her, how long can Kieren control his claws? How long can he protect Quincie— and himself? In an elegant graphic edition featuring cinematic sequential art by debut artist Ming Doyle and lush, romantic cover art by Sam Weber , bestselling author Cynthia Leitich Smith re-envisions her delicious dark fantasy through wolfish eyes.
Sounds pretty amazing, right? The drawings are absolutely insane, and of course, the copy is signed! This is a gorgeous book for anyone who's a fan of Cynthia's books or just really beautiful artwork.
