drumroll...Cover & Copy for UNHOLY GHOSTS...drumroll

OCTOBER 27, 2009...







THE AFTERLIFE IS ONLY THE BEGINNING.

The world is not the way it was. The dead have risen and constantly attack the living. The powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Consequently, there are many false claims of hauntings from those hoping to profit. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully-tattooed witch and freewheeling Debunker and ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for nailing the human liars or banishing the wicked dead. But she’s keeping a dark secret from the Church: a little drug problem that’s landed her in hot and dangerous water.

Chess owes a murderous drug lord named Bump a lot of money. And Bump wants immediate payback. All Chess has to do is dispatch a very nasty species of undead from an old airport. But the job involves black magic, human sacrifice, a nefarious demonic creature, and crossing swords with enough wicked energy to wipe out a city of souls. Toss in lust with a rival gang leader and a dangerous attraction to Bump’s ruthless enforcer, and Chess begins to wonder if the rush is really worth it. Hell, yeah.




(squeeeeee! I LOVE this cover so much I want to marry it, look how awesome!!! It's lost alittle clarity as I had to shrink it in my cheapo Photoshop knockoff program, I think, but...squeeeee!)

The cover enhances the title and matches your trailer very well.

Very cool cover, and great blurb. I look forward to reading it in October!

If you have time . . .I wrote about going to see my play yesterday, and what an "adventure" it was!

Thanks everyone! Yep, the one thing I was very specific about when asked my thoughts on the cover is that Chess looks like Bettie. And yes, V95, "The departed have arrived" is TOTALLY badass, isn't it?! I practically squeed all over when I read that copy!

Oct 17, LW! And you all have to buy it that day. :-)
