Cover Reveal: Contact by Laurisa White Reyes

The best part of this crazy writing world is the people you meet along the way. 

Laurisa White Reyes in one of those special folks. 

She wears many hats including founder and coordinator of our local Santa Clarita, California SCBWI Schmooze. 

I'm delighted to share her exciting news with you - this gorgeous cover of her upcoming novel.

Drum roll please...

 It takes only half a second, like those commercials where a crash test dummy rockets forward at high speed and slams into a wall. In that instant every thought in Emma Lynn Walsh’s head collides with mine—every thought, memory, hope, disappointment and dream.
I open my eyes to see Dr. Walsh peering at me, a puzzled expression on her face.
“Let—go—of—me,” I order though clenched teeth.”

Mira wants to die. She’s attempted suicide twice already and failed. Every time she comes in contact with another person, skin to skin, that person’s psyche uploads into hers. While her psychologist considers this a gift, for Mira it’s a curse from which she cannot escape. 

To make matters worse, Mira’s father is being investigated for the deaths of several volunteer test subjects of the miracle drug Gaudium. Shortly after Mira’s mother starts asking questions, she ends up in a coma. Although her father claims it was an accident, thanks to her “condition” Mira knows the truth, but proving it just might get her killed.

  7. Very different concept. Intriguing and I'm making a note of it. Thanks.

  8. I like the cover, and I like the description of the story too; people's relationships with their parents can be very complicated, so it's always interesting to read stories about how those "complications" are described.
