FATAL Cover Reveal! Be still, my heart

IT'S FINALLY TIME! I CAN SHARE MY COVER WITH THE WORLD! I was going to draw this out with a bunch of funny pictures (because I'm too tech illiterate to figure out how to do gifs) but I decided to just unveil Fatal's new cover the way any other person on my level of crazy might. Of course I mean, not slowly and carefully but rather like this...

BA-BOOM.



Sigh. Isn't it wonderful?

Now, let's talk about this sucker. While it may look a little minimalistic, there's actually a lot going on here. First of all, we have the main character, Grayson, right there front and center. He's dark and mysterious and clearly not a social butterfly going by the way he's tucked away in that hood. Leather, which plays a pivotal role in zombie safety, is represented by his jacket. Which is zipped up to his neck-- he won't be letting just anyone in. It'll take someone unexpected to break through the barrier he's erected. And last but certainly not least, can we talk about the water?!

The WATER. This is not at all what I expected when I asked for something with water. Those of you who know about these zombies, know how important water is to them. They basically need water to remain animated. It's THE MOST IMPORTANT element to these undead. And I just love how the Omnific team chose to represent it. That Grayson is submerged. With his clothes on. That there are no water droplets on him (you'll get why this is important when you read the book). That the water is CALM. I can't explain why it's all so fitting without giving anything away. But just know, that this cover couldn't be anymore perfect for the story Fatal tells.

Double sigh.


So, here's the blurb:


First love can be brutal. Sometimes it can be Fatal.

Grayson Patch hasn’t been human since he was seventeen years old… and that was nineteen years ago. When he rose from the dead, he had no memory of his former life. Grayson desperately wants to recapture his lost humanity. And he’s been told that there is one person in this world who can save him from his current fate before he begins to decompose. One person, whose life must be sacrificed for his.

Cori Abbott has a million things to worry about. She’s the new girl in a school that’s a fraction the size of her old one. Her antisocial tendencies are crippling her ability to make new friends. And then there’s the recent, sudden death of her father, the only man who ever understood her. The last thing Cori wants is the attention of a strange, withdrawn, and consistently angry guy who seems to hate her for no apparent reason. A guy she can’t stop thinking about.

Will Cori break through Grayson’s cold exterior and find the human within, the boy who can love and understand her like no other? Will Grayson sacrifice Cori to rid himself of his undead curse, even if it means losing her forever?
