As some of you know, my young adult debut novel VIGILANTE NIGHTS sold late this summer to Merit Press Books, the new YA imprint of F+W Media. Last week I finished my first round of revisions and turned them into my editor (whew!). At the same time, I received my final cover. I'm so excited! I absolutely LOVE this cover and couldn’t be happier. I love the colors and the gritty feel of it. The Merit Press art department did a fantastic job and really got the essence of the story with this cover. What do you think?

Blurb (Unofficial):

After he awakens from a coma, Lucas Alexander is bereft of everything that made his life meaningful - his beloved twin sister, Silver, his future as a college football player, and his vintage Camaro. Unable to face the anguish, he starts a vigilante club to hunt down the gang running the gang initiation Lucas and Silver stumbled into. As Lucas schemes, his life turns weird when he and Silver have conversations from the grave, and then it becomes deadly when he winds up a target and jeopardizes his family and friends.
Desperate to hide his activities from his parents and handle them his way, Lucas seeks out Tara, his shy new neighbor, to patch up a knife wound to his hand. Instead, he finds hope in Tara and realizes there’s more to life than vengeance. Now Lucas must find a way to halt the insanity before he loses everything again.
