Cover Reveal: ONE, TWO, THREE by Elodie Nowodazkij

A couple years ago, back when I had first started writing and had what felt like a half-baked WiP on my hands, a lovely lady in Germany by way of France approached me about becoming critique partners. I didn't have to think about this for more than a minute or two before emailing Elodie back, accepting her 'proposal'. Fastforward two or so years and this same lovely lady has decided to self publish her YA contemporary story, to "choose [her] own magic", which I think is pretty darn fantastic! (And an equally fantastic way of putting it.) In that time, we've become not just critique partners but friends (she's easily the sweetest person I know), so it's great to be involved in getting the word out about Elodie's book and to be a part of her cover reveal today.

So without further ado, I give you ONE, TWO, THREE by Elodie Nowodazkij:

Publication Date: June 26, 2014

Elodie's cover was designed by Derek Murphy at CreativIndie Covers and does a wonderful job reflecting the story tucked inside.


Here's what it's all about:
When seventeen-year-old Natalya’s dreams of being a ballerina are killed in a car accident along with her father, she must choose: shut down—like her mother—or open up to love. 
Last year, Natalya was attending the School of Performing Arts in New York City. Last year, she was well on her way to becoming a professional ballerina. Last year, her father was still alive. 
But a car crash changed all that—and Natalya can’t stop blaming herself. Now, she goes to a regular high school in New Jersey; lives with her one-time prima ballerina, now alcoholic mother; and has no hope of a dance career. 
At her new school, however, sexy soccer player Antonio sees a brighter future for Natalya, or at least a more pleasant present, and his patient charms eventually draw her out of her shell. 
But when upsetting secrets come to light and Tonio’s own problems draw her in, Natalya shuts down again, this time turning to alcohol herself. 
Can Natalya learn to trust Antonio before she loses him—and destroys herself?

Sounds pretty great, right? As someone who has read Elodie's book, I can tell you that you'll fall in love with both Nata + Tonio.



More about Elodie Nowodazkij, author of ONE, TWO, THREE

THE SHORT STORY: Young adult author, Elodie Nowodazkij writes the stories swirling in her head during her commuting time.

THE LONG STORY: Elodie Nowodazkij was raised in a tiny village in France, where she could always be found a book in hand. At nineteen, she moved to the US, where she learned she’d never lose her French accent. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Modern Language & Linguistics, and later earned master’s degrees in German Cultural Studies and European Studies. Unbeknownst to her professors, she sometimes drafted stories in class. Now she lives in Germany with her husband and their cat (who doesn’t seem to realize he’s not human), and uses her commuting time to write the stories swirling in her head. She's also a serial smiley user. ONE, TWO, THREE is her first novel.
