THE COVER!!

by Chad Morris

So, just in case anyone hasn't been following my journey to getting published, here is the sum up: After writing a crazy manuscript that got publishers' attention, but wasn't good enough to seal the deal, I wrote another book. It's a crazy romp through a futuristic school. Last March, I got a call from Shadow Mountain Publishing saying they wanted to publish it! (They are the same people who published Fablehaven and Candy Shop Wars by Brandon Mull, 13th Reality by James Dasher, Far World by J. Scott Savage, and Janitors by Tyler Whitesides.) Yes, I was crazy excited. Yes, it felt surreal. And yes, I might have even done some weird celebration dance moves. No, you can't see them.

Anyway, it is coming out on March 5, 2013! Brandon Dorman did an absolute fantastic job on the cover, and I've just been given the go-ahead to show it to you. Here it is, in all it's unadulterated awesomeness:

    Curious, did you get an agent first? You mentioned the published bit, just wondering about an agent along the way?
