Super excited to finally show off my new book cover for I Text Dead People! This is the first book in the new Dead Serious series by Random House.

About the book:
You can’t block the dead. 
Annabel Craven hopes she’ll fit in—maybe even be popular—at the Academy. She’s worried she’ll stay friendless and phoneless (it’s true). But when she finds a mysterious phone in the woods near the cemetery, one of her problems is solved . . . and another one is just beginning. 

Someone won’t stop texting her. And that someone seems . . . dead. How is Annabel supposed to make friends when her phone keeps blowing up with messages from the afterlife? And what will happen if she doesn't text back?

And here's the back cover...

I already got my ARCS and I'm so in love with it! This is a story I've wanted to write nearly forever and it's gone through soooo many changes to become what it is now. 

About ten years ago it was a dark YA titled, Confessions of a Morticians Daughter. After putting that back on the shelf for a few years, it was a lighter version but still YA, called Deadies Don't Gossip. But then my Blogtastic Novel series took over and after finding my true voice in MG, I Text Dead People was born. And yes, I do realize now how inappropriate the second title was because Deadies do gossip. And they love every minute of it! 

I TEXT DEAD PEOPLE will be released June 9, 2015. But don't worry, you can totally pre-order it now :)

P.S. Keep those receipts if you do because details on a  pre-order giveaway coming soon!
