A killer trailer for a killer book

I'm super (super!) excited about Killer's Instinct, a creeptastic Young Adult thriller the "other me" wrote with the awesome Judith Graves.

The book launches October 2013 from Leap Books, the same amazing publisher that published my short story THREAD OF THE PAST in the SPIRITED anthology.

Here's the blurb:


Where there is no life, there’s HOPE

Hope has always been a bit of a freak. She sees beyond the veil to where the dead walk amongst the living, their semi-corporeal forms appearing like creepy flashes from a never-ending macabre dream. But when her mother crawls from the grave and her zombified corpse goes MIA, Hope's last thread of normal snaps.

Enrolling in a militia-style school for monster hunters seems her best bet for tracking down Mommy-dearest and putting what’s left of her to rest. But the stakes are raised when she’s partnered with three unique male recruits – each with their own personal demons to slay if they want to survive basic training.

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 to save her soul? In a place like Le Manoir, all bets are off.

And here's the trailer:

Awesome, right? The trailer was done by the ever-talented Judith Graves.

But wait, there's more! Here's a link to an advance review from author extraordinaire Sherry Ficklin, who calls Killer's Instinct: A beautifully woven story about courage and trust and what it really means to be a 'monster'. 

Pinch me - I think I'm dreaming.

More news about Killer's Instinct in the coming months here...and at the home of the "other me."
