I know — I can’t get this to fit at a reasonably readable size, but at least you can get a glimpse of what Thomas Nelson is working on for the full cover of my upcoming YA novel Nightmare City. It’s not due out till November, but if you pre-order the e-book now in any format, you can get it for a bargain $3.99.
If you can’t read the cover copy, here it is:
As a reporter for his high school newspaper, Tom is always on the lookout for an offbeat story. But from the moment he woke up this morning, his own life has been more bizarre than any headline could ever tell.
The streets of his town are suddenly empty and silent. A strange fog has drifted in from the sea and hangs over everything. And something is moving in that fog. Something evil. Something hungry. Closing in on Tom.
Tom’s terrified girlfriend Marie says the answers lie at the Santa Maria monastery, a haunted ruin standing amidst a forest blackened by wildfire. But can he trust her? A voice that seems to be coming from beyond the grave is telling him that nothing is what it seems.
One thing is certain: with his world collapsing around him, Tom has only a few hours to recover the life he knew — before he, too, is lost forever in this nightmare city.
