Little Dead Riding Hood Cover Reveal


Guys, guys, guys!!!  I'm soooo excited!  The cover for my next book, LITTLE DEAD RIDING HOOD is here!!!

Let me just tell you....the cover is aaahhhhhhmazing!  Rachael Caringella hit it out of the ball park again! 

Of course, Jolly Fish Press is kind of awesome that they allow me to have input into the cover.  I had some ideas, and really hoped they'd implement my vision....but I couldn't have imagined the illustrator and cover artist, Rachael, would do something so incredible. It's as if she has mind-reading powers because she can see straight into my brain....but then takes my vision and makes it more than I could have dreamed!

You totes want to see the cover, right?  Okay....but first....the blurb!

You know things are going to suck when you’re the new kid. But when you’re the new kid and a vampire… well, it bites!

Unlike most kids, Scarlet Small’s problems go far beyond just trying to fit in. She would settle for a normal life, but being twelve years old for an entire century is a real pain in the neck. Plus, her appetite for security guards, house pets and bloody toms (tomato juice) is out of control. So in order to keep their vampire-secret, her parents, Mort and Drac, resort to moving for the hundredth time, despite Scarlet being dead-set against it. Things couldn’t be worse at her new school, either. Not only does she have a strange skeleton-girl as a classmate, but a smelly werewolf is intent on revealing her secret. When she meets Granny—who fills her with cookies, goodies, and treats, and seems to understand her more than anyone—she’s sure things will be different. But with a fork-stabbing incident, a cherry pie massacre, and a town full of crazy people, Scarlet’s O-positive she’ll never live to see another undead day.

Not even her Vampire Rule Book can save her from the mess she’s in. Why can’t she ever just follow the rules?

And now....
 
Drumroll please......


 
It's awesome, right??  *pets cover* I luuuuve it!!
 
 I just adorehow Scarlet's bangs form a "widows peak" like Dracula's hair. Too clever! I love her little smirk, too. Like she's been up to no good. The creepy woods in the background convey the type of setting we were hoping for in this story.
All in all - another win!!
 
The crazy part? This book will be in the hands of readers in SEVEN months!
 
Ack!!!
