P is for...

Picture Reveal!

So, while I have been doing my best to use a letter either from the book title or author's name to link with the day's A-Z letter, with today's post I had to be a little more creative, as I signed up to do this cover reveal last month. Generally, when a new cover art is unveiled, it is called a 'cover reveal'  (for obvious reasons *snort*), but you all know how I like to bend the rules, so don't mind me changing the word from 'cover' to 'picture'. No matter how hard I tried, 'cover' just wouldn't be helpful and begin with a 'p'. *winks*

The Blurb:

Ten Days  by Olivia Mayfield
Publication date: May 2013
Genre: New adult/YA crossover sci-fi romance
Goodreads Page

Seventeen-year-old Cally isn’t like the others. In her society, the Machine caters to every whim, ensuring people don’t have to leave their pods. But Cally and her best friend Marshal find themselves drawn to how things used to be, when people lived on the surface of the earth and relied upon manpower, not technology. When physical contact wasn’t uncivilized, and love was normal, acceptable, embraced. Cally tries to swallow down her increasing dissatisfaction with the "rules," as well as her rapidly developing feelings for Marshal, a task getting harder each day.

Then, things start going downhill, fast. Food is spoiled. Air grows musty. The population panics about the dysfunction--is it sabotage? Anarchy? But Cally and Marshal discover the truth: The Machine, the answer to all their problems for longer than anyone can remember, is breaking down. Now, these two have to risk it all to save themselves and the people they care about...before their entire world destroys itself.
