Scorched Cover Reveal

Hey guys, 

It's the moment I've been waiting to share with you for months now! At long last, the cover reveal for my brand new trilogy, SCORCHED, coming out in hardcover from Sourcebooks on September 3rd. 

How do I describe this book? My editor likes to say, "If Anne McCaffrey wrote Terminator." Or a friend of mine described it as "Terminator starring Daenerys" and indeed my agent originally pitched it as "Terminator meets Game of Thrones." It's contemporary, it's fantasy, it's apocalyptic. It's even a little paranormal, I suppose. 

The book begins in present day West Texas, at a fading roadside attraction run by sixteen year old Trinity's nutty professor-like Grandpa. Over the years, Grandpa has been collecting some pretty unusual exhibits and so when he presents Trinity with what he calls "The world's last dragon egg", she's not exactly convinced. Not until the museum is invaded by soldiers trying to steal it, along with a strange boy who appears out of nowhere and tells her the world as she knows it will be wiped out by a fiery dragon war--unless they work together to stop it. 

Anyway, I don't want to give away any spoiler so I won't say anymore! But here are a few links to check out while you wait for September!
