Cover Reveal: The Cover For HUNTED!

I just got the cover for HUNTED (coming out this Oct), and I am SO thrilled! I LOVE it. I think it has both the tension and the feeling of the book, while saying visually that it’s a fantasy.

In HUNTED, Cassie is a telepath in a world where that is illegal. She is on the run from the government troopers, trying to stay hidden and alive–and trying to help make the world a better place for others with paranormal talents.

I’m very lucky to have the wonderful publisher and editor that I have. I got to work closely with WestSide on the cover of HUNTED–something that not every author gets to do.

I think covers are important in helping to get a book out there–a bad cover can turn you off. So I’m delighted with this cover!

…What do you think? Do you like the cover? Or not like it?

    Startling! evocative!

  17. Joe, thank you! I’m glad you think it fits. It really fit for me, especially since there’s a lot of telepathy and use of the mind as a power, a gift. Somehow the foggy part felt like that to me.
