This is one of maybe a dozen or less guy-only covers I’ve done and it’s definitely one of the only two or three sort of sci-fi-ish I’ve done. Is it sci-fi looking? You’ll all have to weigh in with me on that one. I love that shock of orange in the middle contrasted with the gargoyle and combined with the synopsis and the questions raised about this Max guy, I’m wondering about its significance. Hmmm. Non-poofy skirt covers make me think!

Genre: Young Adult Urban Fantasy
Normal people don’t believe their nightmares stalk them. They don’t fall in love with boys who don’t exist, either.
Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares.
Or is that all in her head?
Layla doesn’t know what to believe any more because if none of that’s true, Max MacLarnon must be an illusion, and her heart must still be broken.
No matter how much she wants to believe Max is real, doing so would mean everything else is, too. How, then, is that possible?
The answers lie in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal, and with a curse that could tear Layla and Max apart forever—if it doesn’t kill them both first.
In TIED, book one in the Fire Born trilogy, learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal of demons, and being with Max will put Layla on a path toward her own destruction.
Just how far will Layla go to protect the one she loves?
The answer may never be far enough … away.
