World of Shell and Bone Cover Reveal!

This week we have a special treat. I’m honored to be participating in the long-awaited cover reveal of Adriana Ryan’s new novel, World of Shell and Bone. It will be entering the world on December 7’th, 2012. Here’s Adriana:

adrianapolaroidYou see how spunky and sparky she is? She writes what I call “spookynatural” fiction. You might call it paranormal or romance or fantasy, but just call it great and you’ll know you have the right adjective.

Listen to this synopsis of World of Shell and Bone and tell me that you don’t wish you had it in your hands right now!!

“In a world ravaged by a nuclear holocaust, Vika Cannon knows there are no guarantees: no guarantees of safety, no guarantees that your neighbor is not actually a spy for the government, and no guarantees you’ll be allowed to emigrate to a new life in Asia.

New Amana is dying. Food and water are scarce, and people suffering from radiation-caused mutations—the Nukeheads—are the new class of homeless.

Vika has just one purpose: to produce healthy progeny using a Husband assigned by the Match Clinic. Unhealthy children are carted away to Asylums to be experimented on, just as Vika’s little sister Ceres was, eight years ago. Parents incapable of producing healthy progeny are put to death in gas chambers.

When she’s assigned a Husband shortly after her twentieth birthday, Vika expects him to be complacent and obedient. But Shale Underwood has a secret. He is a member of the Radicals, the terrorist group intent on overthrowing the government. And Shale has information about Ceres.

As she learns more about the Rads’s plan, Vika finds herself drawn to Shale in ways she’d never imagined. When freedom calls in the way of a healthy pregnancy, will she betray her government and risk death for Shale and Ceres?”

I, for one, can’t wait to find out!

And now…*drums roll, trumpets trump and angels sing* here it is: World of Shell and Bone!

WoSaB3DIsn’t it amazing??

It was designed by James Helps ( and what a job he did! Mark it on your calendars: December 7’th, one week from today!
