Cover Reveal - A Howl in the Night

As promised, my next book to be release by Rogue Phoenix Press, on June 20, 2012 is: 

A Howl in the Night


(Pretty!)



And...a short excerpt for you all (just cause I'm nice):

~*~

Then a new thought crashed into my brain. “Wait a sec. If my father is a werewolf...?"

“Not a werewolf, just a wolf,” my mom said, interrupting me.

“Okay, fine,” I said. If her story was true though, I had to wonder, what did that make me? It was my turn to pop up off the bed and pace around. What about me? Was I going to grow hair and fangs and run around trying to bite people? “Oh, God.”

It felt as if my life was over. How was I supposed to finish school if I turned into a wolf every time the moon was full?

Would it hurt to change? It always looked like it did in the movies. I had seen that werewolf movie where the guy runs around London eating people. The change was always accompanied with screaming and pain. Was I going to hunt down my friends and family and eat them?

I didn’t know if that was really how it worked or not, but before I could work myself up into a real freak fest, my mom said, “I have watched you all your life Abby, and I have never seen anything wolf-like about of you. I promise. That worry has always been in the back of my mind, but nothing has ever come of it. You’re fine. Come on, you don’t even like meat.”

There you have it!  So...what do you think?

    1. I hope it is as good as I think it is. Most werewolf books are a "OH NO! I'm a werewolf" type. I wanted to try for something a bit differant.

  2. It looks wonderful, Courtney! I like the touch of the wolf on the back cover there, and the overall red. And of course, the cover image looks wicked.

    That is such a teaser! Ooooooh, it's going to be good! ("just cause I'm nice" LOL!)

    1. I am nice...in my own sarcastic, moxy way. Ha!

      I also agree, the red turned out really nice for the cover. Gave it more of a sunset effect. Worked out well. The little wolves on the back, were a nice add in.

  5. What do I think? I love it! The front cover is awesome, just wish I could read what the back says. Your little "tease" has me wanting more already. Great job Ms. realtime, bigtime author!! One question though. Since the girl in your book doesn't like meat and neither do you, does that mean you are really a wolf too? Or are you just teasing us again!

    1. LOL! No it was just a nice little sub-plot. I mean a wolf that doesn't like meat? Go figure.

      Not much longer Miss Impatient!
