Well, after the beautiful, stark yet monochrome cover for Come Alive, I wanted something colorful. Yet eerie. Beautiful. Yet scary. Sigh. Not an easy task…luckily my designer Naj has infinite patience and we finally came to a cover that really captured the togetherness of Perry and Dex, the beautiful yet rough Oregon Coast (site of their first EIT episode, Darkhouse).…and a creepy ass child. Because nothing is more terrifying than dead children out for revenge and shit. Oh…I’m stepping on the blurb now. All right well here is the blurb for Ashes to Ashes, EIT #8 (December 11, 2013 — my bday):
It’s been two months since Perry Palomino and Dex Foray’s relationship reached a new turning point, two months since Perry started a new life in Seattle, and two months since their Experiment in Terror show took on a new partner, ex-Wine Babe Rebecca Sims, and found a new level of success. But whenever there is light in their lives, the madness still has a way of coming back in.
When the team is sent back to the stormy Oregon coast to investigate a haunted school, Perry wants to use the opportunity to reconnect with her family and reintroduce Dex into their lives. Only Perry’s not the only one who’s reaching out – her grandmother Pippa has started appearing to her with disturbing warnings and Perry’s presence at the school has ignited a chilling new wave of supernatural phenomenon. Once used a century ago as a sanatorium to house children dying of tuberculosis, the school’s past residents are slowly coming back to life and with one thing on their mind. They want someone to play with, someone to join them. Forever.
Even when dead, some children get whatever they want.
And they want Perry.
And the cover:
And the full cover:
Sigh, this is almost the last book, guys. I’m really glad some of you are sad that the series is coming to a close — if you weren’t, it would mean it was dragging out. No, Perry and Dex deserve to go out with a bang!
