Some Hollowmen Stuff (Including Cover Reveal)

Hollowmen isn’t done yet. My goal is to finish it next week and get out to the editor right after that. Then hopefully I can get it out sometime in November. That’s the plan right now, but of course, things are subject to change.

With that in mind, here are three things about Hollowmen that I can share:

1. The opening line. I’ll probably have the first chapter up once I’m finished with my book and gone over my first cursory edits before sending it off to the real editor. But right now, I can definitely share the opening line.

    I was dying. Daniels knew it, and I knew it.

2. The soundtrack. Which I spent way more time on than I should. I made the playlist on Youtube since they had all the songs I wanted, particularly Motion City Soundtrack “Disappear” and People on Planes “Last Man Standing,” which were both necessary. (And it is a pretty awesome soundtrack.) You can check out the soundtrack: here.

3. The cover. It’s once again by the fabulous Claudia Mckinney at who did the cover for Hollowland, as well as Virtue.

FYI: I know you can’t see really the words above the title. I think I might remove them for the e-version and only use it on the print version. Yep. That’s what I think.

    I am so excited for this book to come out. Think I will reread Hollowland while I am anticipating this sequel. It has been quite a while since I read it and I want to reacquaint myself.
    Crossing my fingers that nothing delays this one! I have yet to find a piece by you that does not pull me in and hook me so that I cannot put my Nook down (which my husband cannot stand) but oh well, he bought me the Nook so what can he really say! 🙂

    I cannot wait until this book comes out! I devoured Hollowland and love the title Hollowmen…my husband had been trying to get me into zombies since we started dating and Zombieland just about did it, but Hollowland put me over the edge. I’m hooked! This is your best work yet. I really enjoyed the Trylle trilogy and I can’t wait until you finish My Blood Approves, but this is by far the best in my opinion. Nothing you write seems too predictable and I read a lot so most everything seems predictable. This is exactly what I needed after getting lost in The Hunger Games and I can’t wait for more!

    I just read Hollowland and was disappointed that I have to wait to read what happens! You are an amazing storyteller and I hope you keep writing books forever!

  • I have been waiting and waiting for this!

    It looks like a great read! Will it be on Amazon for Kindle?

    It looks great! And I’d leave the words above the title. Can’t wait to read this one. I read Hollowland in like two days, it was so good. 😀

    Wishing you much success.


    Check out my books!

  • It looks great, Amanda! I agree with you though. Change the color of the title for the e-book version. And also make it a little bigger so it stands out and is clear. The way it is now, it would be really hard to read in a thumbnail. Other than that, it’s really really good!

    The cover looks amazing and made me actively search out the first book in the series. Kudos to the cover artist!

  • Loving the cover 🙂 I can’t wait to see what happens next!
