Hey guys…

No vlog today (though I’m still taking suggestions if there are things you want to see/hear about). πŸ˜€

But I do have something fun to share. Got permission to share the back cover copy that will be on the ARCs of Queen of the Dead. This is not final, even for the ARCs, and the jacket copy for QOTD will be different as well, but it should give you a pretty good idea of what the book is about!

After being sent back from the light, Alona Dare–former homecoming queen, current Queen of the Dead–finds herself doing something she never expected: working. Instead of spending days perfecting her tan by the pool (her typical summer routine when she was, you know, alive), Alona must now cater to the needs of other lost spirits. By her side for all of this, ugh, “helping of others” is Will Killian: social outcast, seer of the dead, and someone Alona cares about more than she’d like.

Before Alona can make a final ruling on Will’s “friend” or “more” status, though, she discovers trouble at home. Her mom is tossing out Alona’s most valuable possessions, and her dad is expecting a new daughter with his wicked wife. Is it possible her family is already moving on? Hello?! She’s only been dead for two months! Thankfully, Alona knows just the guy who can put a stop to this mess.

Unfortunately for Alona, Will has other stuff on his mind, and Mina, a young (and beautiful) seer, is at the top of the list. She’s the first ghost-talker Will’s ever metβ€”aside from his fatherβ€”and she may hold answers to Will’s troubled past. But can she be trusted? Alona immediately signs her name in the “clearly not” column. But Will is, ahem, willing to find out, even if it means leaving a hurt and angry Alona to her own devices, which is never a good idea.

Packed with romance, lovable characters, and a killer cliffhanger, Queen of the Dead is the out-of-this-world sequel to The Ghost and the Goth.

    Sounds awesome! πŸ˜€ I really can’t wait!
    But poor Alona πŸ˜• Mina is already on my “clearly not” list as well. Will better makes up for upsetting Alona!

    But killer cliffhanger sounds horrible… πŸ™„ πŸ˜‰

    Thank you, everybody! πŸ™‚

    @Nina, I don’t think the cliffhanger will be *that* bad, but maybe that’s because I know what happens in the next book, LOL!

    And as for Mina v. Alona, well, yeah, I know who my money would be on!

    Well, actually though they make my life miserable I love cliffhangers πŸ™‚ (as long as they’re not as mind-blowing as in Catching Fire e.g.). I guess I’m kind of masochistic that way^^. Man, I can’t wait for QotD πŸ˜€

      Hi Summer! πŸ™‚
      But if you hurry it too much, then you’ll just be waiting (I hope!) for book three. And book three, well, that’s a game changer. πŸ˜‰

        Well, I’m making all of my friends read the first one. I won’t be the only one waiting patiently. … Or in patiently. πŸ™‚

        Question : We got the summary…now what about the cover picture? πŸ˜‰ Haha.

        Thanks for responding!

    The cover is coming, I promise! πŸ™‚ The ARCs, I believe, will have a close-to-final cover, but I think they’re still going to make some tweaks.
