Rainbow Rowell recently blogged about the release of the cover of her upcoming novel Landline. Check this out…
This cover’s actually done by Olga Grlic, Rainbow says, who also did the covers for Eleanor and Park and Fangirl. I actually liked the old red landline phone that Rainbow had posted earlier in her blog but this one’s cute too.
Here’s the blurb from her website:
Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems besides the point now.
Maybe that was always besides the point.
Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.
That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .
Is that what she’s supposed to do?
Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if they never got married at all?
Landline will come out in July 2014. (Sooo far away…) But since I think I’ll be reading whatever Rainbow Rowell will be writing, I just have to endure the more than half a year wait…
Don’t forget to check out her earlier books, which are A-MA-ZING, by the way.
