The book will be published first as an e-serial and then a print novel by Leap Books, the same amazing publishers who brought you the SPIRITED anthology and Judith's SKINNED series.
More about Killer Instinct below, but first, a moment to appreciate the awesomeness that is this cover.

*puffs out chest with pride*
The cover art was created by the brilliant artist Gaetano Pezzillo. This guy has mind blowing talent, and I'm so thrilled he agreed to work with us on creating this gorgeous cover for Killer's Instinct. Read more about Gaetano here.
And now, here's the unofficial blurb for Killer's Instinct.
Where's there's no life, there's Hope.
Hope has always been a bit of a freak. But when her mother crawls from the grave and her undead corpse goes MIA, Hope's last thread of normal snaps with a vengeance.
Enrolling in a militia-style school for monster slayers seems the only course of action. And the best bet at tracking her mother down.
But does Hope have a true killer's instinct? If she finds her mother, will she have the guts to do what must be done?
The book is the first in a series of four, each told from the points of view of four young slayers who are tasked with ridding society of the world's most wanted monsters - before they GET you. The books also complement the non-fiction elements we profile weekly on our blog.
Killer's Instinct launches in 2013 first as an e-series, whereby Leap Books will release 6 e-episodes of the story, and then publish the novel in print form at the end, likely in 2014.
You'll be hearing a lot about Killer's Instinct and Most-Wanted Monsters. If you know Judith and I at all, you know we're just getting started :-)
