Some Hollowmen Stuff (Including Cover Reveal)

Hollowmen isn't done yet. My goal is to finish it next week and get out to the editor right after that. Then hopefully I can get it out sometime in November. That's the plan right now, but of course, things are subject to change.

With that in mind, here are three things about Hollowmen that I can share:

1. The opening line. I'll probably have the first chapter up once I'm finished with my book and gone over my first cursory edits before sending it off to the real editor. But right now, I can definitely share the opening line.
    I was dying. Daniels knew it, and I knew it.

2. The soundtrack. Which I spent way more time on than I should. I made the playlist on Youtube since they had all the songs I wanted, particularly Motion City Soundtrack "Disappear" and People on Planes "Last Man Standing," which were both necessary. (And it is a pretty awesome soundtrack.) You can check out the soundtrack: here.

3. The cover. It's once again by the fabulous Claudia Mckinney at who did the cover for Hollowland, as well as Virtue.

FYI: I know you can't see really the words above the title. I think I might remove them for the e-version and only use it on the print version. Yep. That's what I think.
