Cover Reveal- Stained by Cheryl Rainfield

Today is the official cover release date for Stained by Cheryl Rainfield! Yay! Cheryl’s other books include Scars and Hunted. I was lucky enough to have Cheryl contact me to help get the information about her upcoming book out there. For without further to do, here is some information about her next book STAINED! At the end of this post, you can watch the book trailer for STAINED.

Description-

In this heart-wrenching and suspenseful teen thriller, sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for "normal." Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, all her life she’s been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust. But when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to uncover the courage she never knew she had, become a hero rather than a victim, and learn to look beyond her face to find the beauty and strength she has inside. It’s that—or succumb to a killer.

A Note from the author-

Like I did with SCARS and HUNTED, I drew on some of my own experiences of bullying, abuse, and trauma to write STAINED and to give it greater emotional depth. Like Sarah in STAINED, I experienced abduction, imprisonment, periods of forced starvation, mind control, and having my life threatened. And like Sarah, I tried hard to fight against my abuser, keep my own sense of self, and escape. I hope readers will see Sarah's strength and courage, and appreciate her emotional growth as she reclaims herself.

STAINED will be released on November 19, 2013

It sounds like a fascinating bit of fiction drawn from tragic non-fiction experiences of the author.
