Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Cover Art Revealed for Vicki Pettersson's Second Celestial Blues Novel!

[ Edited ]

I absolutely loved The Taken, the first novel in Vicki Pettersson's Celestial Blues saga – my full review is here Stunningly Stylish: Pettersson's New Series Showcases the Evolution of an Author and a Genre – but I am BLOWN AWAY by the cover art for the second novel, The Lost. I LOVE IT!!!!

I love the cover. Follows the first cover but really steps it up to a new level. Check out the cherry tattoo.

Well, yes, Deb, I am a leg man but that really isn't why I love this cover, although WOW nice gams! It just so perfectly epitomized the sexy and stylish tone of this series. Just perfect. Whoever did this cover should be hugged repeatedly and slapped on the back. :smileyhappy:

Well yes Paul I do agree it was just a bit of tongue and cheek for you :smileyhappy:

 

It does showcase the type of style used inside, the clothes, a bit dark and yes very sexy our Rockabilly star.
