I have one small thing to celebrate today. I had one day this week that I only concentrated on writing. That was wonderful and long overdue.

Now we have a new book with a splendid cover to reveal. Ta da!

YA Supernatural Thriller
Release Date: August 12, 2014

Seventeen-year-old Carly Lopez suffers from post-traumatic stress, though the “post” part technically doesn’t apply…not when the killer’s still out there. 
As the only survivor of the killing spree that left four dead girls in its wake, Carly fails to unearth her buried memories of that day and is consumed with guilt. After a year of silence, the killer's back, and Carly will stop at nothing to stop him. 
With each new death, Carly’s reality shatters, propelling her deeper into the darkness where the dead haunt her and where the truth lies. Her only firm grasp of reality is Hunter Jackson, whose mysterious overprotectiveness of Carly forces her to doubt the reason behind her guilt.    
But Hunter has a secret.
And when she discovers a horrible truth, Carly questions her involvement in the murders. Was she directly responsible? Did she help the killer? Carly soon learns that finding answers may mean risking more than just her sanity.

  17. Congrats to Elizabeth on her new book! It sounds great! I'm so glad you got to spend some time writing. With too many things to do, I know it's hard to find the time - that's why you have to *make* it. I'm making a month of time during my vacation. After a summer of getting nowhere, I'm vacationing in the land of Write-the-damn-book-istan. ;)

  21. A day of writing? What a treasure. Great cover, but I'm such a fraidy cat I'm afraid (get it?) that it's too scary. I'm convinced, though, that there's a huge audience out there who will gobble it up! Good luck, Elizabeth!
