Cover Reveal And Giveaway

It's here! The cover of TOUCH OF DEATH! I'm in love with it, but I want to hear what you think.


And here's the official synopsis:
Jodi Marshall isn’t sure how she went from normal teenager to walking disaster. One minute she’s in her junior year of high school, spending time with her amazing boyfriend and her best friend. The next she’s being stalked by some guy no one seems to know. 

After the stranger, Alex, reveals himself, Jodi learns he’s not a normal teenager and neither is she. With a kiss that kills and a touch that brings the dead back to life, Jodi discovers she’s part of a branch of necromancers born under the 13th sign of the zodiac, Ophiuchus. A branch of necromancers that are descendents of Medusa. A branch of necromancers with poisoned blood writhing in their veins. 

Jodi’s deadly to the living and even more deadly to the deceased. She has to leave her old, normal life behind before she hurts the people she loves. As if that isn’t difficult enough, Jodi discovers she’s the chosen one who has to save the rest of her kind from perishing at the hands of Hades. If she can’t figure out how to control her power, history will repeat itself, and her race will become extinct.



Yay! And as promised, I'm giving away multiple YA books in honor of reaching 200 followers. One winner (US only. Sorry!) will win their choice of 3 YA books from the following.

    Heist Society
    The Last Little Blue Envelope
    Get Well Soon

    Take Care,

    1. Taurean, the synopsis was a combined effort. I wasn't alone. My agent helped a lot. Good luck with the giveaway!

    2. Your giveaways are always popular Kelly, but luck may be with me this time. I find the thrill of luck more fun in games or contests than life. Simply because it doesn't have to be so serious all the time, you know?

      Regarding the synopsis, you still had to get the ball rolling yourself, so to speak, right?

      That said, I wish I had that kind of help regarding this kind of stuff right now, but I can't even afford a conference workshop, let alone a freelance publicist, the only way I see getting the kind of help I'd need at this point in the game.

    3. Good luck in the contest, Taurean. Yes, I had to write the initial pitch, which my agent perfected for me. Then it was cut a bit to what you see here. For this book I wrote the pitch before I wrote the book. It helped a lot because instead of condensing an 80,000 word book to a short pitch, I was focused on the pitch and what needed to be told in it. I'm continuing to do this because it worked for me.

  33. Crap. I was hoping the giveaway was YOUR book. So I'm commenting, because that cover is AMAZING (and the story sounds wonderful, too) but will pass on the contest as I have too many books in my TBR stack as it is. *sobs* (And yet, I picked up 3 more books at Costco the other night, and downloaded three from Amazon, must be braindead.)

    Congratulations on such a great cover!
