Here’s the blurb from the book description on amazon:
‘Imagine you’re getting bullied. Imagine three kids from your high school have jumped to their deaths from a suspension bridge in the last year.
And now those tweets and comments and taunts have put you on that bridge, and you make the biggest mistake.
You let go.
That’s what fifteen year-old skateboarder Lester Selman does.
Thing is, Lester survives. But it’s not luck—he is saved by someone, or something.
And now a bad-tempered doom-metal girl called Sludge shows up. She looks like she has answers—about that weird homeless guy who can outrun a gazelle, about that stash of ancient Nordic weapons, and about who and what hides in the forest and on the Internet…
That’s a lot for Lester to deal with, and since he’s not dead and stuff, he still has to go to chemistry first period.’
Kris wanted the cover to be a real punch in the face. It had to have impact across all types of e-readers and also when it was featured as a thumbnail on amazon.
We went through a few stages to get there but it was a great process – you can read more about it in this blog post. And, if you want to read hiddenfolk (you should, it’s fantastic), you can buy it here.
