Cover Reveal: The Knife and the Butterfly by Ashley Hope Perez

Yesterday author Ashley Hope Perez revealed the cover of her second novel The Knife and the Butterfly on her website. Here it is!!

Azael Arevalo wishes he could remember how the fight ended. He knows his MS13 boys faced off with some punks from Crazy Crew. He can picture the bats, the bricks, the chains. A knife. But he can’t remember anything between that moment and when he woke behind bars. Azael knows jails, and something isn’t right about this lockup. No phone call. No lawyer. No news about his brother or his homies. The only thing they make him do is watch some white girl in some cell. Watch her and try to remember.

Lexi Allen would love to forget the fight, would love for it to disappear back into the Xanax fog it came from. And her mother and her lawyer hope she chooses not to remember too much about the brawl—at least when it’s time to testify. Lexi knows that there’s more at stake in her trial than her life alone, though. She’s connected to him, and he needs the truth. The knife cut, but somehow it also connected. (from ashleyperez.com)

I am a huge fan of Ashley's and share her excitement for her upcoming novel which will be released in February 2012. To read the first chapter, go HERE  

On October 20th, Ashley will do a radio program with Figment co-founder Dana Goodyear, NYT writers, and NWP teachers. Here's more info: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/nwp_radio/2011/10/20/why-i-write.
