The full synopsis for The Cure for Dreaming:

Olivia Mead is a headstrong, independent girl—a suffragist—in an age that prefers its girls to be docile. It’s 1900 in Oregon, and Olivia’s father, concerned that she’s headed for trouble, convinces a stage mesmerist to try to hypnotize the rebellion out of her. But the hypnotist, an intriguing young man named Henri Reverie, gives her a terrible gift instead: she’s able to see people’s true natures, manifesting as visions of darkness and goodness, while also unable to speak her true thoughts out loud. These supernatural challenges only make Olivia more determined to speak her mind, and so she’s drawn into a dangerous relationship with the hypnotist and his mysterious motives, all while secretly fighting for the rights of women. Winters breathes new life into history once again with an atmospheric, vividly real story, including archival photos and art from the period throughout.

The Cover for the Paperback Edition!

The paperback edition of In the Shadow of Blackbirds is coming October 7, 2014, from Amulet Paperbacks, and I'm now able to share its cover. Granted, the cover isn't dramatically different from that of the hardcover edition. In the paperback version, the cover model portraying Mary Shelley Black is now front and center, the title and my name are larger and brighter (they match the color of the cool antique chair!), and that lovely Morris Award Finalist seal has been incorporated into the artwork. The spookiness of the original design is all still wonderfully in place, and I'm extremely happy with the revised look. Here it is . . .
