WIP Wednesday: Sharp Edges

Behold, the cover of Shock Totem #3:

I wish my current WIP was half as pretty.

Megan eyed me in study hall. She kept eying me, sneaking glances when I was hunkered over my sketchbook. My doodles grew eyes and arms, reaching out of the paper, grasping for dry land. Sanctuary. Megan’s eyes were black ash.

“Did you know this guy they found in the river?” she asked.

I looked at Stienz. His head was bent toward a book.

“No,” I lied.

“It’s awful sad. Does stuff like this happen often around here?” she asked.

My tongue was a stone, heavy and stubborn. “No,” I lied again.

That cover keeps popping up everywhere today and I am getting more and more jealous with ever instance. Absolutely gorgeous. Congrats, Aaron. Oh and I love the teaser.

It is pretty. I have a knife just like those in the butcher block at home...minus the windows and doors, of course.

A fabulous cover.

Congrats, man. I sent them my doppelganger tale this past weekend. If they accept it, I may have to decline. It'll be contingent on the coolness factor of their next cover!

Thanks, Ali. I think the cover might have killed a few bystanders.

Natalie - ;D

I want a poster size, Danielle.

Milo - I'm sure it'll be awesome. They've all been awesome so far.
