|Full Cover Wrap|
Yesterday was the big cover reveal for THE LAST BASTION Of THE LIVING at numerous blogs. It was hosted by The Bookish Brunette for Zombie Craze. The feedback on twitter, the blogs, facebook, goodreads, and in messages has been very positive. I'm so glad you love it as much as I do!
Above is the full cover wrap for the book. We have yet to put the final text on the back cover, but you can see how amazing this book is going to look. It's beautiful! Claudia McKinney did such a great job and I feel this artwork really captures the power of Maria Martinez, my protagonist. A few people have compared it to Underworld, but that is inevitable when you have a bad ass brunette in a leather armor catsuit. Personally, I would love it if readers come away from the book feeling that Maria is as much of a bad ass as Selene. Vanguard Maria Martinez is one of my favorite characters to date. I love her. She is such a strong, competent woman. I can't wait to share her with you.
There is NO PRE-ORDER on this novel. Sadly, that option is not available to Indie Authors at this time. Hopefully, this will change in the future. The book will be available in both paperback and in ebook formats.
We may have it be a Kindle exclusive for 3 months. My husband and I are weighing the pros and cons. Nook sales are significantly less than Kindle sales and we're are interested in the Kindle library (which means the book ends up exclusive to Kindle). I'll keep you posted.
The book will also be available on my online store. You will be able to buy autographed copies. We are also setting up a Cafe Express shop where you can order items with the cover image. I will keep you posted on that as well.
There will be a blog tour from June 11 to July 7. There will be a major giveaway, so keep your eyes peeled. There may even be a chance to win the book BEFORE the release date if we can sort out all the details.
Please remember to add it to your goodreads "to read" list.
I have been asked a certain question various times now, so here is the answer:
This book is NOT associated in anyway, shape or form with the AS THE WORLD DIES zombie trilogy (or Untold Tales) universe. It is a separate universe with a completely different type of zombie and history.
