Another fabulous cover!

July 1st, 2010 • Kate

It’s a big week for covers at kt literary! Monster-lovin’ author Carrie Harris‘ debut YA novel BAD TASTE IN BOYS has a July 2011 pub date and an eye-droppingly gorgeous cover. Think I’m being excessive in my praise? Check it:
BadTasteinBoysFINAL The delicious blurb:

Someone’s been a very bad zombie.

Super-smartie Kate Grable gets to play doctor, helping out her high school football team. Not only will the experience look good on her college apps, she gets to be thisclose to her quarterback crush, Aaron. Then something disturbing happens. Kate finds out that the coach has given the team steroids. Except . . . the vials she finds don’t exactly contain steroids. Whatever’s in them is turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless, flesh-eating . . . zombies.

Unless she finds an antidote, no one is safe. Not Aaron, not Kate’s brother, not her best friend . . . not even Kate . . .

It’s scary. It’s twisted. It’s sick. It’s high school.

    Is that sugar!

    Wow, that's one of those books I'd buy for the cover alone! Crazy.


  4. Kate Says:

    Excellent question, Kristy! You can't, yet. But stay tuned to Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Indie Bound, or call your favorite local independent bookstore.

  5. Lisa Aldin Says:

    AWESOME cover. Wowzers. This one really rocks. I seriously feel, like, SOUR just looking at it!

    Interesting that everyone's assuming sugar, but my first thought was salt. Wonder which it is…

    And it is gorgeous. And yet another book I'll definitely be checking out come 2011.

  7. Carrie Harris Says:

    I believe it's sugar!

    And thanks for all the kind words! I feel really REALLY fortunate in getting this cover.

    That cover is SO. SEXY. My jaw actually dropped when I saw it. It's easily the coolest (ah hem, hottest) cover I've seen all year! And this:

    "It’s scary. It’s twisted. It’s sick. It’s high school."

    Just kills me! I can't *wait* to read it. Feeling quite greedy and lusty for it right now.

  11. Erika Marks Says:

    You would have had me with the title alone–but that cover seals it–well done, Carrie, and a talented design team! Congrats!
