And now for the main event! (Warning: if you are at work, you might want to lower your volume first)


So what did you think? AMAZING right?

And here's the cover in its full glory:



If you want to see the full jacket, that's over on STACKED.  Kelly also talks about what it was like to be a beta reader for LEVEL 2.

Oh that's wicked cool!

Zoƫ Marriott said...

Wow, I love how ACTIVE the model looks in the cover - the image is full of movement and there's sense of her strength, if that makes sense? I feared the worst when the footage started, but instead of a Dead Girl cover you got a Girl Kicks Butt cover :) Congratulations!
