FLAP LOVE!

So...I'm perusing Amazon the other day--like you do--when what do I find on the VELVETEEN pre-order page? The front flap description of the book!!!

Presented here without further chatter...

***************** 

Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that's not the problem. The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it's not a fiery inferno, it's certainly no heaven. It's gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn't leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what's really on her mind.

Bonesaw.

Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she's figured out just how to do it. She'll haunt him for the rest of his days.

It'll be brutal . . . and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen's obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she's willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker. Velveteen can't help herself when it comes to breaking rules . . . or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

***************** 

HOLY CRAPS!! Thoughts? Wanna preorder, yet? Added it to your Goodreads? VELVETEEN comes out on October 9th this year. And I'll be revealing an awesome cover peep show contest soon, including super secret grab bag prizes! Cannot. Wait.

  5. Why did I think purgatory was jail? After all this time, I just learned what it really was. Feel dumb. On the other hand, this sounds even better than I imagined!!
