In Which I Get To Reveal…

Posted: October 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

…the description and flap copy for A Touch Morbid! As the publishing date grows closer, ARCs are starting to make their way into the world–which means I’m allowed to talk more about what’s behind that gorgeous cover!  Expect darker.  Expect insanity and wicked things and lots more Luke. A Touch Morbid forces you to think about what lengths you would go to when everything around you, including yourself, starts to break apart, get lost.  Go mad.  Check out the description from the HarperCollins catalog below!

Eden won the battle-she saved her true love from the darkest evil. But the war has only just begun. With secrets swirling around her, powerful allies unraveling, and life-and death-as she knows it eroding, Eden and those she loves tread dangerous ground. Can she trust anyone? Will her unearthly powers be her salvation or her downfall? A sweeping, dark, and sexy paranormal romance that will haunt readers with an inventive mythology and a cinematic New York City filled with shadows and longing.

As you might have guessed, this time around Kristen has a point of view, along with Eden, Jarrod and Gabe.

The flaps are spoilery, so if you’ve read A Touch Mortal, highlight to read them! Otherwise, scroll down to for contest deets and other stuff…

Eden saved Az.

She fought and sacrificed and won him back

from the most evil of evils. Now is the time for

happily-ever-afters, right?

Not so fast.

A boy—even an angel—is hardly the solution

to Eden’s problems. She’s still caught between

life and death, still cursed to spread poison

with her touch.

She’s lost one best friend and another is

quickly unraveling. And now, something is

happening to the mortals. Something very,

very bad.

What happens in the dark spaces? The ones

between life and death,

betrayal and redemption, sanity and delusion.

Or good and evil.

Eden is about to find out.

The riveting sequel to A Touch Mortal

  39. Momo says:

    Wow, I should probably space out my comments….this won’t be helpful. OMG, this somehow reminds me of The Hunger Games. How Katniss’s name was in the drawing ball thingy like twenty times. This is totally irrelevant or totally relevant but whatever. I’m rambling now, haha! But I just didn’t want to comment links…I wanted to leave you know, meaningful comments for Leah. HAHA. (:

  40. Momo says:

    Wow, no one else has commented but me since like….a few hours ago? OMG. I feel lame now. Anyway, here’s another tweet.

  52. Momo says:

    I’m curious….are we supposed to link back to this post or are we supposed to link back to the A Touch Morbid Pre-Orders tab….?

    Because if you haven’t noticed, the links that Leah posted up at the top go to the Morbid Pre-Orders tab.

  53. Momo says:

    Also here’s another tweet:

  54. Momo says:

    Just so you know, I’m not spamming twittah with these tweets. I tweet the link throughout my school day, lol. It just seems like a lot because now that I’m home, I can go back and get the direct link to paste in the comments.

    Just fyi…for whoever cares. (;

  55. Momo says:

    And here’s a tweet of a retweet of Leah’s tweet from this morning.

    LOL, I like that sentence. So many TWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETs.

  56. Momo says:

    You know, the first thing I did this morning was tweet this:

    LOL, I need a life.

  57. Momo says:

    OKAY, enough of me now. I’ll come back with more twittah and facebook links later. OH WAIT, I haven’t posted a facebook link for the day. Here’s one:

  58. Momo says:

    Also, I hardly ever post on facebook so right now on my wall, I have TONS of posts about the Morbid description, lol! My friends are probably like, “OKAY MOMO! WE GET THE FRICKIN’ POINT!” [INSERT EVIL LAUGH HERE]
