Jacket Copy -- Huzzah!

Yeah! I got the okay to share my official jacket copy for Clarity. Woot!

On the back will be the following teaser excerpt from the book:

In Eastport, a tourist town on Cape Cod, lives a family of freaks. My family. I'm a psychic. My brother's a medium. My mother's a telepath. Tourists love us. Townies scorn us. We live in a grand Victorian house with no permanent ghosts, and we use the first floor for our family business: readings. Not the bookstore kind.

The back flap will have my bio and author pic (still going to share that funny story someday).

The front flap will have (more or less) this:

Clarity "Clare" Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch an object and the visions come to her. It's a gift.

And a curse.

When a teenage girl is found murdered, Clare's ex-boyfriend wants her to help solve the case — but Clare is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Clare's brother — who has supernatural gifts of his own — becomes the prime suspect, and Clare can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of the new detective, Clare must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she needs it most?

Swoon. I’m so happy!

I also…wait for it…got my cover yesterday.

*thud*

*picks self up from floor*

However, I cannot share that yet. Not for a long while.

But I promise you, it will be worth the wait. It’s so different from what I was expecting, so different from what’s out there right now. It will definitely stand out!

In the meantime, why not add Clarity to your to-read shelf at Goodreads? Every time someone does that, an angel gets her wings. Okay, not really, but a chick named Kim smiles.
