Wow, that's deep.
Anyway, in an effort to give YOU a peek behind the scenes, let me tell you a little about what's going on behind THE SCENES. (I figure if I write it in all caps, it might seem a little less redundant.) Right now, we're talking about exciting stuff like covers and blurbs and photos. And I have something I'm allowed to share! Finally! Sharables! Not BEHIND DA SCENES!
See what I did there? I did even MORE caps and used DA instead of THE. Talk about changing it up!
So. If you've been wondering something along the lines of, "Yeah, the blog is kinda funny, but what the heck is the book about?" Guess what? I have the OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION. Oh. Fish. All. And here it is:
Someone’s been a very bad zombie.
Super-smartie Kate Grable gets to play doctor, helping out her high school football team. Not only will the experience look good on her college apps, she gets to be thisclose to her quarterback crush, Aaron. Then something disturbing happens. Kate finds out that the coach has given the team steroids. Except . . . the vials she finds don’t exactly contain steroids. Whatever’s in them is turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless, flesh-eating . . . zombies.
Unless she finds an antidote, no one is safe. Not Aaron, not Kate’s brother, not her best friend . . . not even Kate . . .
It’s scary. It’s twisted. It’s sick. It’s high school.
I'd be uber happy if you'd read it when it comes out! You can even add it to your Goodreads to-read list right here.
Definitely interest piquing, especially combined with the hottie author pic on the back. [Long day at work yesterday left me unable to comment on your last one, so I thought I'd combine both comments.]
Weeeell, I gueeeess, since you asked niiiicely, I'll proooobably read it when it comes out. ::siiiiiiigh::
Fantastic blurb....And you're never boastful.
The blurb sounds great and I love your new photo!!
Sorry, it's Friday and my brain is fried, but great blurb!
Love it! How could anyone not love a zombie novel?
Can't WAIT to see the cover!!
Love the blurb, and I already added it to my to be read list awhile ago and can't wait to read it! And love your author pictures, they're great!
Well, I already thought it sounded awesome, but I LOVE the description! Can't wait to read it. So, um, when do you get your ARCS? I think Michigan folks should get first peek.
OMG! How fun will it be when you start doing signings here!
Yay! I think I added this under the old title to my Goodreads. I better go check it out!
Very exciting to read the official blurb. Too cool.
Sending you all virtual candy. No, it doesn't taste very good, but it doesn't have calories either.
Um. Stop licking your screen.
And Valerie, I don't have an ARC timeline just yet, but when I do, I'll sing it to the hills!
I;m psyched! Can't wait :)
And no, you don't sound braggy. We're all curious about the process, and love every juicy morsel you're allowed to share.
Wow! You've got this teenager's interest with that blurb. I love hearing what everyone's stories are about--I'm always so surprised (and excited!) by the awesome ideas.
To use a Carrie-ism:
(Wow. You're an -ism now. We'll have to ponder the geopolitical ramifcations . . . hope the world does not almost tilt off it's axis . . . like last time :-)
LOVE the blurb! Can't wait to read the whole book! Yay for all of your hard work!
(Too many exclamation points, I know!)
That's a kick-A taste of your book, Carrie. Can I ask, did you just write it up and send it off, or do the publishers like to have some input (the way they do with titles)?
Love the blurb!!!
The blurb is great - I definitely want to read your story. Go you!
YAY! Can't wait to read it!!!
Awesome, Carrie! I added your book to my Goodreads list months and months ago. I can't wait until it's out and I can finally read it. That description is fantastic. Talk about putting the voice into the blurb!
Thank you! You are good people! I hope you win the lottery.
Ray, I only WISH I had something to do with this awesomesauce. But actually, the jacket copy is written by the publishing house. Or at least it was in this case.
All I can say is...Dude. That blurb is all awesome and official sounding.
Ah, I love it! Is it weird to say a zombie book sounds cute? Because it does. :)
Sounds really cool...and kind creepy. In a good way. :)
