Cover Reveal and Contest for AFTER HOURS!

Hi everyone!

I am incredibly excited to reveal two new things about my upcoming book...the first of which is a new title!  That's right - the book is no longer called ON THE CLOCK.  It's called AFTER HOURS, which I love because I think it's fabulous and just a bit scandalous - much like the story!

So without further is the COVER!

My editor promised sexy AND funny and I think they pulled it off!

So now that you've seen the cover, what's it all about?

Isa, Xavi, Peter, and Finn know that a job at the high-end Waterside Cafe isn't just about waiting tables. It's about the gossip, the hook-ups, the after-hours parties and, most of all, it's about Tips.

Tips--the high-stakes game based on dares. Whoever completes the most dares wins the collected money. A sum that could change a wasted summer into a Summer to Remember.

Isa is the new girl with an embarrassing secret, and as long as she stays on top of her game, she sees no reason why anyone could ever find out.

Xavi will do anything for the money...absolutely anything.

Peter, Xavi's stepbrother, has been in love with her for years, and he thinks the game is the perfect time to confess his feelings.

Finn is in the game just for the thrill. He has enough tips coming in to keep him happy...even if those tips come with some conditions.

From seduction to stealing to threats, the dares are a complete free-for-all, and only the best can win.

The sophisticated Waterside Cafe is anything but classy behind the scenes...and things are about to get dirty.

Now, I promised PRIZES!  And guess what?  There are TWO ways to win.  Yep.  Two.

Prize one:  $50 gift card to (since the book is mainly set in a restaurant!) and a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card

How to win:  Leave a comment on this blog entry! One winner will be randomly selected from the comments!

This contest will be open for seven days.  The contest closes on 6/26 at 1:00 PM CT.
Prize two:  $25 Barnes and Noble Gift Card 

How to win: Tweet with the Hashtag #AfterHoursGiveaway and let people know about AFTER HOURS and the cover reveal!  A winner will be randomly chosen!  Remember - you can find me on twitter @amandakmorgan. :)

The Twitter contest closes 6/22 at 11:00am CT.

You may only enter the Twitter contest ONCE.

Please note you MAY enter for both prizes, but two separate winners will be selected.  If you are randomly selected for both prizes, you will receive prize one and another name will be selected for prize two.

Lastly, if you would like a jumbo bookmark with the fab cover and AFTER HOURS info, please reach out to me and I'll make sure you're mailed one!  Catch me at amanda k morgan (at) hotmail dot com.

A very special thank you to Russell Gordon, the designer at Simon Pulse who created this pretty cover and my amazing editor, Michael Strother! :)

Happy AFTER HOURS cover day and thanks for playing! :)  Please feel free to tweet, share on Facebook, instagram, tumblr, whatever!
