Today, I am excited to bring you a little something different:
a cover reveal with a bonus author interview!
Allow me to introduce you to the book: FERAL by Holly Schindler.
It’s too late for you. You’re dead.
Those words float through Claire Cain’s head as she lies broken and barely alive after a brutal beating. And the words continue to haunt her months later, in the relentless, terrifying nightmares that plague her sleep. So when her father is offered a teaching sabbatical in another state, Claire is hopeful that getting out of Chicago, away from the things that remind her of what she went through, will offer a way to start anew.
But when she arrives in Peculiar, Missouri, Claire quickly realizes something is wrong—the town is brimming with hidden dangers and overrun by feral cats. And her fears are confirmed when a popular high school girl, Serena Sims, is suddenly found dead in the icy woods behind the school. While everyone is quick to say Serena died in an accident, Claire knows there’s more to it—for she was the one who found Serena, battered and most certainly dead, surrounded by the town’s feral cats.
Now Claire vows to learn the truth about what happened, but the closer she gets to uncovering the mystery, the closer she also gets to discovering a frightening reality about herself and the damage she truly sustained in that Chicago alley. . . .
With an eerie setting and heart-stopping twists and turns, Holly Schindler weaves a gripping story that will make you question everything you think you know.
Mark your calendars for the release of FERAL on August 26, 2014. You can pre-order the book on Amazon here and/or add it to your Goodreads list here.
Holly Schindler has also graciously offered to answer a few questions for my readers. I give you the author in three questions . . .

My dog. Coffee. A good pair of soft jeans. A shade tree. My favorite concert T-shirt from the hair-band days. My glasses (20/700 vision)! And for writing—a bottle of nail polish (the bigger the chips at the end of the day, the more words I’ve written).
