LIFEL1K3 cover reveal!

Mobile phones off, please.

Droogs!

This is the day, this is the hour! Finally, I get to reveal the US cover for LIFEL1K3, my new YA Fury Road/X-Men/Romeo & Juliet/Bladerunner . . .  thing. LOOK, IT’S A WEIRD YET AWESOME BOOK, OKAY?

As always, I’ll be giving away some shiny loots, but first!

The jacket copy:

On an island junkyard beneath a cigarette sky, a deadly secret lies buried in the scrap.

Seventeen-year-old Eve isn’t looking for secrets; she’s already too busy looking over her shoulder. The robot gladiator she spent months building is a smoking wreck, and the only thing keeping her grandpa alive was the handful of credits she just lost to the bookies. Worst of all, she’s discovered she can destroy machines with nothing more than her mind, and a bunch of puritanical fanatics are building a coffin her size. If she’s ever had a worse day, Eve can’t remember it.

But when Eve discovers the ruins of a beautiful android boy named Ezekiel buried in the scrap pile she calls home, her entire world is turned upside down. With her best friend and her robotic sidekick in tow, she and Ezekiel will trek across deserts of irradiated glass, battle cyborg assassins, and scour abandoned megacities to save the ones Eve loves . . . and learn the dark secrets of her past.

Even if those secrets were better off staying buried.

Second, the loot!

Hello droogs!

Well, the GODSGRAVE ARC competition has come to an end, winners have been notified by email (they have til Friday to get back to me with their mailing addies, or I’ll draw new winners). I’m very chuffed to say it was a HUGE success, and between us, we managed to raise over $2,700 for the mighty Sea Shepherd.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, each and every one of you, for donating to the cause. It doesn’t matter how much money you contributed, the point is, you contributed, and for that, you have my deepest appreciation.

If the oceans die, we die, and every little bit helps.

Thanks for making this contest a huge success, I’m definitely going to be doing this again in future!
