Ever wanted to read a novel based on the cover alone?
Diana Rowlands new book, My Life as a White Trash Zombie, has a really interesting cover. Definitely on of my favorites. I was interested in the book before I'd even read the synopsis; added it to my TBR pile immediately. That's the advantage of a truly great cover. It attracts readers before they even know anything about it's contents. But who wouldn't want to read a Zombie love story anyway? It will be interesting to see how Ms. Rowland makes that angle alone, work.
Release Date: July 5th, 2011
Angel Crawford is a loser
Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she's a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who's been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken.
That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn't have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there's a job waiting for her at the parish morgue--and that it's an offer she doesn't dare refuse.
Before she knows it she's dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey--just when she's hungriest!
Angel's going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn't, she's dead meat.
