First, the shiny:
To celebrate my long-awaited cover reveal, I’m running an epic contest. Details below:
And that’s it, really. Just follow the instructions to enter. Winners will be announced on Cinco de Mayo. (And if you don’t win the ARC, you can always pre-order OUTPOST.)
I’m so excited! I hope you guys love this cover as much as I do. I adore everything about it.
ETA: Here’s a link to the free Razorland novella, Endurance, featuring Thimble & Stone, now on Heroes and Heartbreakers. I hope you enjoy it! (It’s free for now.)
Pamela (@SpazP) says
Amazing!!! I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!
I am so excited! I have already put my money aside to buy it on Kindle!!!
Ahhh! This makes me all kinds of happy. I can’t wait to read it! The cover is awesome.
Christina (A Reader of Fictions) says
The cover is good. Not my favorite, but it is creepy and totally fits with the Enclave cover, so I give it my seal of approval, for however much that’s worth.
Why do I deserve to win? Ummm, well, because I loved Enclave and really, really, really want to read Outpost? And because I’m planning a dystopian month in August and it would be awesome to be able to review it for that?
Tobi Summers says
So shiny! It looks so cool! I sat down to read Enclave not that long ago and blew through it in two days. I couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait for Outpost!
Wow, that cover is creepy and really hints at what’s inside the book. I remember reading Enclave and not expecting how gritty and dark it turned out to be, but this cover really does the book justice!
I really, really, really can’t wait to read this one! I should win because I’ve turned more than a few friends into fans of this series, and we’re only one book in! 😀
kai charles says
Love love love it! I find that gloved hand so sexy!
I win it so I can devour it and blab about it!! 😉
Katie Walker says
Great cover! Looks like a creepying story to come!
Lillie H says
Eeee! I’m gonna take a moment to fangirl over OUTPOST! Seriously I loved the start of the Razorland series, and can’t wait for more.
Becky B. says
Love the cover. 🙂
Becky B. says
Well, I think I deserve to win because I would give the book a good home and promise not to mistreat it in any way. 🙂
Love the creepiness of the cover and cannot wait to read Outpost. =)
I love this cover, it is totally creepy with that eye peeking through the wood.
Ann Aguirre says
OMG! I did NOT notice that. It’s so cool, quite a shocking jolt when you zero in on it. Thanks for the eagle eye!
SQUEEE!!! love the cover and can’t wait to read it.
I am so excited to read Outpost. I just read Enclave I got from RT Booklovers in Chicago. The cover is way cool!!
Jen D. says
Holy crap I think my brain just exploded! Love the final cover! I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!
Charles Le bBlanc says
The Cover looks Great!!
Can’t wait to read It.
Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal says
OMG! The cover is AMAZING! So creepy and fantastic! <3
I loved Enclave and can't wait to get my hands on this book!
Tammi H says
I love the cover! I’m excited for this book!
Eva / TXBookjunkie says
That’s an awesome looking cover. That would definitely make me pick the book up and check out the blurb!
Samantha R. says
It looks amazingly creepy. Great look!
Chelsea / Vampire Book Club says
So so so so excited for this one!
Great cover! I loved Outpost and I can’t wait to read Enclave!
Ann Martin says
Great cover. Can’t wait for it to come out. 🙂
Love this cover!
Molly Frenzel says
I think the cover is really creepy, in a good way. I love it! I can’t wait to read this. I’ve been dying to know what happens!
Sallie Mazzur says
I AM SO EXCITED FOR OUTPOST. I finished Enclave in 3 hours and I have been counting down the days until Outpost comes out. The cover? AMAZING. It’s just as fabulous as Enclave, but creepier! It says a lot about the story on the surface and how Deuce is going to continue to be warring against the baddies. :):):)
Dani @ Refracted Light says
Love this cover!!! I love the creepy feel to it. The first cover was very imposing and formidable, but this cover just makes me uneasy, with a heightened sense of danger, while also making me insatiably curious… Why the torn up boards? Where are they? The blood? Whose blood is it? The hunter and the hunted obviously being pictured, but which on is which?
This just makes me really, really excited. I must have more Deuce and Fade NOW… and that’s why I must win this book 😉
Thank you so much for the giveaway and congratulations on the fantastic cover!
WOW! What a great cover. I want that on my shelf. Besides I have all the other Ann Aguirre books so I need it to round off my collection 😉
You bet your bippy I’m getting this book! Whether I win it or not, Outpost will be mine!
And what a great, creepy cover. I thought the hand was bad enough, but then the eye… ::shiver::
Sullivan McPig says
I already preordered my copy as soon as it was available on bookdepository and am counting the days.
Sullivan McPig says
Oh and I should win one of these prizes because I will need an extra copy for when the other is totally falling apart from all the rereading 😉
Lili Moss says
I love this cover! It’s both awesome and creepy:) Can’t wait to read outpost!
I love the cover and the shade of green used. The hand and splash of blood add that awesome creepy factor. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Nikol K. says
I really like cover, it’s a little creepy but it goes well with the Enclave cover. I really want to win because I read Enclave last year and cannot wait to read Outpost!!
Sandy Giden says
The cover looks great. I have no budget for buying books right now but really want to read Outpost.
Rachel Elizabeth says
Ooh, creepy cover, but I like it! And I like how the blood is dripping over the title words. I reaallllly want to win because I need more Fade and Deuce!
Melissa (My World...in words and pages) says
Creepy! I love the hand there. It adds to the feel of the whole cover. 🙂 Wonderful look.
I’m excited for this one as the kid and I read Enclave together, and he loved it! I was so shocked! He found a book he so enjoyed, so I want to keep going with this series with him. Kind of something in common, while he’s turning 13 we are starting to see different things.
But, to the cover! Congrats!!! Love it!
The cover is so awesome, you just have to read it when you see it! And I really want it, I love books, and one more on my shelves will not hurt. 😛
Awesome cover!! I love the green and the creepy! I can’t wait for this book! Thanks so much for the chance!
ODell @ Book Twirps says
Awesome cover. I LOVED Enclave. Can’t wait to read this.
Carina Olsen says
Omg! I love this book cover. <3 It is stunning! And it is unique; different from other covers. It fits so well with Enclave; and I love them both 😀 Can't wait to have my copy of it. <3 I should win this contest because I adore you. And I loved Enclave. I adored Fade the most; and I need Outpost to figure out if there will ever be something happy for him. I need it. And I have no patience to wait (A) I would most like the ARC of Outpost. But I would also love a signed Enclave; because I loved it, and I would love anything signed by you. <3 🙂 Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway. You are the best 🙂
OMG!!! so excited i really love this cover!! I really enjoyed Enclave and it would be awesome to get Outpost especially from you!!!! I love you ann <3
Lisa Loves Literature says
I think the cover is super creepy looking!! Love it! I would love to win these books because I’ve wanted to read Enclave for so long, and I have a friend I discuss books with who has read it and keeps telling me I need to hurry up and read it so we can discuss it!!
Ooh, I love the cover, and I’m super excited for Outpost. Enclave was the last YA novel that I read that I completely fell in love with, and I can’t wait for more about Deuce and Fade.
cheap auto insurance
I love it with the eye and the hand looking out from behind the wood.
The new cover is so spooky spectacular!!!
Catherine Z. says
I love this cover! It is kind of foreboding, but I feel that it will match the book really well :)! I want to read Outpost because I read Enclave when it first came out and I don’t know if I can wait much longer!!!
That is such a cool cover!
Andrea Duncan says
That cover is AMAZING! Can hardly wait for the book.
I like this cover better then the one for Enclave. I’m excited for the book!
Teri C says
Both of the covers have been great, they have that old tarnished dystopian feel.
Cannot wait to see what happens in Outpost.
Abigail [All Things Urban Fantasy] says
Really love this over the early leaked concept. Super creepy. Can’t wait!
Wow, its pretty spine-chilling and ominous with the creepy hand and the blood drops! Love it! You always get the best artwork!
I wont say I deserve to win any more than someone else, but I am one of your biggest, most uber fans, so thats something right?! lol
Oh, also, thank you for posting the novella with Thimble & Stone. <3 It's pure awesomesauce!
Stone & Thimble are so sweet together. Stone the tender, protective, softy. Thimble the brave, earnest, creative brain.
I even got weepy, while reading it, more than once.
I am so eager for more, and cannot wait to find out whats happening with Duece, Fade & Stalker!
Thank you for the fabulous giveaway!
Ann Aguirre says
So glad you liked the novella!
Just read Endurance and wondering if you will write more on Thimble and Stone at all?
Ann Aguirre says
Thimble & Stone don’t appear in Outpost, but they will return in Horde. Given what you know of events in Endurance, you won’t be surprised that they manage to survive, and make their way to safety, Topside. Eventually. And yes, you’ll find out what happens to them after they leave the bunker, as Deuce does, when she reunites with them in Horde.
Sensational 🙂 I can’t wait
I pretty much think the cover is amazing. It’s pretty creepy and mysterious and it just hints spookiness at us. 😀 Enclave was such a great book that I’m sure that Outpost will be just as amazing.
Wow, that is gorgeous! You are so lucky to always get such amazing eye-catching covers
Amber kinnamon says
The cover rocks! Some covers…especially for Dystopian books can look to happy…this one does not look happy! ITS INTENSE and thank goodness for it. I for one think it will go beautifully on my shelf.:) cant wait till i get to dig my nails into it.
Amber kinnamon says
oh…and why do I think I should win…because I am a huge fan and lover of the written word, and you just utilize those words so well, I feel like I might really appreciate them more than others;) (and I never win anything…so it would be super cool to win something for once)
Ahh! I can’t wait to read Outpost! I adore the Razorland series (although my heart lies with the Sirantha Jax books).
The cover looks deliciously creepy and do I see an eye peeking out from between the planks of wood?
I think I should win because I adore your writing and would love the chance to read Outpost before many other people. I’d feel like I have my own little time machine. It would be awesome.
Tez Miller says
Would love to be in the running, please 🙂
I’m so excited! Can’t wait!
I absolutely LOVED Enclave….so much. I really enjoy the darker side of YA. This cover is uber creepy and just perfect!!!! I need this book on my shelves.
That cover is so creepy! But definitely fits the story. Would love to win so I can read it early. 🙂
Sarah M. says
What a great cover! Read the first book in a matter of hours and am anxiously awaiting this book!
I think the cover is really good–it’s creepy enough, you know?
As to why I should win…well, I did tell you the series would sell immediately, didn’t I?
I love these characters, soooo much!
I love that cover and the reason I should win is so I can give it my son. He loved your first in this series.
The cover looks great, Enclave is on my wishlist, I would definitely like to win a copy.
Sharon M. says
Great cover…can’t wait to read it!
Alex D says
It is awesome and I love the strategically placed eye. Haven’t read Endurance yet but have skimmed and it looks great, I do hope that we get to see more of these characters.
Alex D says
Sorry didn’t see the last part of the entry. I would love to win because I loved the first one and am excited to see where the story goes next.
…Also it is exam week and super stressful so this would be an amazing ‘congratulations you did it’ gift 🙂
The cover is pretty creepy. I think I should win a copy because I’ll gladly review them.
I love the cover. The gloved hand and eye are somewhat creep, but I like the blood dripping down the title. The trees and the fact that everything is tinted that shade of green only make me like it more. I think I should win one of these prizes because the second I finished Enclave it jumped to the top of my favorite books list and I made my friend read it. I just have to read Outpost. I read the first two chapters and just kept rereading them. I loved Enclave and hope that Outpost is just as good.
Ashley H says
OMG!!! AN ARC!!! I hope i win. I can’t wait to see what happens between Fade and Deuce. I hate those guys making fun of her at the salvation. It infuriates me. I really wanted her to punch them hard and see them running away. Why does Fade help her but doesn’t even talk to her? I need to find out. Deuce x Fade FOREVER!!!! But until I find out what happens between them i’m leaning on Deuce x Stalker. Also the cover is SOOO COOL but also creepy at the same time. It gives me the chills.
Natasha Parker says
The Outpost book cover is wonderful, I love it to bits, it keeps with the enclave book cover theme and it looks like the freaks are tearing apart the wall and about to get into SALVATION. So I NEED to win this arc contest to find out what is happening with Deuce and the other’s as soon as possible.
Kate @ Nomalicious Reads says
ARRGH I can’t wait for Outpost! The cover is STUNNING!! Equally as awesome as Enclave!!
Great cover! Would love to win a copy!
I love the cover and I should win because I’m so excited to read the new book! I just CAN’T wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Creepy Cover! But I like how it looks similar to Enclave. I want to win because I’ve already gotten so many people to read Enclave and I need to be the first to tell them how awesome Outpost is!
Matthew M says
Nice cover, I agree with another commenter as it does look like the freaks are tearing their way into Salvation. I have been looking forward to reading Outpost and can hardly wait for the release on September 4th. I felt dead inside after the realization that I had hit the end of the chapter sampler, that was too cruel.
Thanks for the link to Endurance
Ann Aguirre says
You’ll love Outpost when you get it!
Vera Rein says
Not my favorite but it’s okay. I think it’s a little bit too creepy.
Jamie Chace says
I have not yet read the first of this series, but I am a huge fan of your work and will read them whether I win or not.. but of course I would love to win XD
Sara M says
I love the creepy hand on the cover. It’s almost too creepy. (And I also didn’t realize there was a creepy hand on the back on Enclave until I saw this one…) I really like the green. It’ll look fantastic sitting next to Enclave’s blue.
Lindsay Mead, TheBookVlogger says
Oh I love it! I am soooo excited!
Lindsay Mead, TheBookVlogger says
Oh btw, I deserve the ARC because I would so do a video review of this book– Just like I did for Enclave. XD
I LOVE IT!! It matches Enclave’s cover which is a big thumbs up from me 🙂
Hmm.. I should win because… I’m awesome and you’d love me if you knew me… maybe. And because you want Outpost to travel Down Under (Aus) 🙂
I love these covers, they are so creepy! Great giveaway, I can’t wait to read the books 🙂 I’m a sucker for signed books so hopefully I will get lucky 🙂
This cover is really cool. TBH it’s not as eyecatching as Enclave but I like it more because it’s got more symbolism. I’m guessing that hand prying apart the wood maybe indicates an invasion of the settlement…?
Vivian Moss says
Wow! I get shiver, when I see the cover! And I’m a huge fan of you!
Love the hand and fence! Can. Not. Wait!
This is by far my fav cover of any book *eveh* I’m sooooo excited for this book. I’ve been counting down and doing squee’s in my head as it draws closer… Big, big, big fan. I can say I’ve literally read everything you’ve ever published and I don’t see that chancing any time soon 🙂
Ann Aguirre says
*blush* Thank you. So glad to hear this.
This cover is so damn perfect for the book! Squee!
Alice McElwee says
You know I love it! I can’t WAIT to read it!
Shaheen @ Speculating on SpecFic says
Wow, that’s a wonderful cover!! The hand, the vines, the blood. So excited to read Outpost 😀
Thanks for writing awesome books!!
The cover is really cool and fits perfectly with the theme. I noticed the creepy eye immediately. Wouldn’t wanna look at that right before I go to sleep. I would love a copy of Outpost because I have gotten people to read Enclave and my mom even bought it herself and she never buys hardcovers. I am so excited for Outpost!
Smash Attack says
THIS cover…is incredible. It speaks VOLUMES of what is inside the covers. SO EXCITED!
The cover looks amazing! It’s sort of neat and simple but at the same time telling so many things. 😀
Why I’d love to win? Because I absolutely loved Enclave and I can’t wait for Outpost. And of course who wouldn’t want to read it early. 😀
Tricia Copeland says
Oooh it’s so pretty! I’ve been dying for Outpost for a long time!
Mel S says
That cover is so creepy! The hand reaching under to grab you…I love it!
And I would love to win cos I just can’t read enough books with ‘freaks’ in…in fact I may be turning into one… 🙂
Linda @ Fiction Fervor says
Oh. My. Gosh. That cover is creeptastic but definitely blew my mind. It’s totally reminiscent of the cover of Enclave, but it has its own unique characteristics. What up with that blood? And the creepy hand, of course.
I would LOVE to have personalized copies of Enclave and Outpost because (1) I adore Deuce and Fade, (2) that post-apocalyptic world just blowwwwws my mind, and (3) I’d totally get bragging rights, hahaha.
I loved Enclave. I hope I’ll love Outpost just as much!
Lauren@The Housework Can Wait says
That’s an awesome cover! And it definitely goes well with Enclave, because when I first saw it (having not yet read Enclave, but it’s been on my to-read list for a while!), I wondered if it was the sequel to Enclave.
I would love, love, LOVE to win because I’ve been dying to read Enclave. I’ve heard nothing but good things, but alas, my tiny budget does not allow me to get every book I want, and my library has something against stocking anything released in the past two years (grrrr). So this would be amazing! I can’t wait to read and review it!
The gloved hand on the cover is creepily cool! I’m after the copy of Outpost – both my younger brother and I read and loved Enclave, and it’s hard to find books my brother actually wants to read through in one day!
Tattoogirl Reads says
I think the cover is slightly creepy and definitely telling something is going to happen in the little town they go to. I listened to the audiobook and loved it. I think I should get it so I can read it and preach to the blogger world about how awesome it is!
Juli @ The Reviews News says
I LOVE the cover–it definitely conveys the wanted atmosphere! And I think I should win one of the prizes because I met you at RT and can now pronounce your last name correctly. Hee. 😀
I absolutely love the cover and have been waiting for this book to come out for it-seems-like ever! I’d love to win a copy of Outpost and no matter what look forward to reading and reviewing it. Thank you for your writing!
Mary @ Book Swarm says
Ooh, awesome! I love how it matches both the feel and the style of Enclave, with the creepy fingers breaking through to the human side of things, threatening the small bit of peace they’re trying to hold on to. Congratulations! Can’t wait to read it and share it with my students (they absolutely loved Enclave)!
Anjana Vasan says
I don’t even need to say it, it’s freaking awesome! I love the greenish color and the creepy hand heading towards the title!
Anjana @ Kindle and Me says
I don’t even need to say it, it’s freaking awesome! I love the greenish color and the creepy hand heading towards the title! I’d love, no wait, KILL to win an Outpost ARC. I loved Enclave so much I’ve made so many of my close friends read it and recommended the book to a lot of the other bloggers/readers I talk to! I’ve been dying for this book for more than a year now, so plzplzplz let me win it? 😛 *fingers crossed*
Zemira Djedovic says
Ahhh!!! I just screamed! I can not wait! Why did we had to wait so long for Outpost?
I think it’s a really great cover, even though it’s not my favourite. It’s creepy but that’s what really makes it such a great cover. It looks really professional and like they took a lot of effort and time in making it.
lisa m says
Have wanted to read this series for a while have heard great things
Barbara Elness says
I love the cover. It fits very well with the Enclave cover and really seems to convey the flavor of the series. I haven’t had a chance to start this series yet, but I’ve adored everything else I’ve ever read that you’ve written, so I really need to read this series as well.
OH MY GOODNESS! I am so excited for this book! =) It was so great to meet you at RT. Hope to get a chance to see you again some other time!! =)
And by the way, the cover is awesome! I love the complexity and the details…it also coordinates well with the cover of Enclave. Absolutely awesome! Congrats!
I think the cover is gorgeous. I loved the ENCLAVE cover and how it was metallic and rough and this one looks amazing. I cannot WAIT to read this book!
Kristi S. says
It’s so cool, better than I expected. I think I love it more than Enclave’s cover…the green tint is very eerie. Well – I would love to win because I am a big fan of Enclave but actually don’t own it (yet). Also I had the chance to meet you at WonderCon but unfortunately, I hadn’t brought the book or enough cash with me…needless to say I really regret it now. But I look forward to reading Outpost, even if I don’t win.
Thanks for the chance!!! 🙂
I love it! It has just the perfect amount of creepiness.
Rain Maiden Jen says
I love the cover and can’t wait to read Outpost. September is so far away.
I am so excited for this release!! I tore through Enclave and now I kind of want to reread it! Thanks for the chance to win Outpost!!!!!
Oops I didn’t answer the question in my first comment! So I love the cover it is so creepy!!! I should totally win because Enclave was one of the first (if not the first) dystopians I had read and it got me hooked on the genre. Also it was my first experience with zombie like creatures!
Beautiful cover! It has me so excited to get back into the world of Enclave. I love the gloved hand in particular – very ominous.
Sorry, I missed the second part of the question! I think I should win because I’m a huge fan who rarely gets the opportunity to go to signings and I LOVE autographed copies!
Really cool cover. It definitely fits the dyptopian genre. I am a big fan of your books and have been wanting to read your YA novels.
OMG! Soooo cannot wait for Outpost! Also, super excited about Horde. 🙂
Oops! Love the cover for Outpost. Very, very creepy! Also, I would love an ARC of Outpost because I have heard so much about from those who have read it on twitter and I don’t know if I can wait until September. 🙂
awesome contest!! *crosses fingers*
Ann Aguirre says
Wow, guys, you have made me feel super loved over here. I will write something extra special in these books to the two winners.
Book cover is made of awesomeness! 😉 Can’t wait to read what’s inside.
Franny Miller says
OMG! I just read Endurance the other day and I’m DYING for Outpost even more now! I love the creepy vibe the Outpost cover has. So awesome! 🙂
Stephanie Collins says
Wonderful contest and cool cover!!
Brandy MacDonald says
I love the Outpost cover, it goes with the series. Plus I need an Arc of it!! Dying to read it!!! I wish I won it at the RT Convention!!!
Amanda Freeman says
Yay!! So excited!! Please please please pick me – I can’t wait until September!! 🙂
Amanda Freeman says
In my excitement forgot to answer the questions. I do love the cover!!
Really enjoyed Enclave and cannot wait to read Outpost. It was so great meeting you at RT in Chicago!! 🙂
Lynn Suer says
Well, not my favorite, but it’s ok. I think it’s a little too dark.
Lia Aoki says
I’m in love with this series ! Well, I love this cover. It’s so mysterious and creepy!
Melanie S. says
The cover looks absolutely amazing and is stunning! Can’t wait to get my hands on Outpost and read on 🙂
mary hay says
Outpost sounds like a good read. I’d love to win a copy.
Ashley D. says
The cover looks fantastic!! I can’t wait to read it!! 🙂

Hi there colleagues, good article and nice arguments commented here, I am in fact enjoying by these.
Hello there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that
it’s truly informative. I’m going to watch out for brussels.
I will be grateful if you continue this in future.
A lot of people will be benefited from your writing.
chic home says
Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason
appeared to be on thee web the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they
plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
and also defined out the whole thing without having
side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably
be back to get more. Thanks
