Cover Reveal: Aversion (Book One of The Mentalist Series)

So, this is it! The spanking new cover for Aversion is finally here, courtesy of the talents of (the fantastic) Abona Frost. I have to say I love, love, love it. It’s much better than what I produced (remember the blue eyes?) and captures some of the spirit of the story. It’s now less than three weeks to the book’s release date (3rd December) so things are winding down in the production house (phew!) but there is still a lot to do. I’d like to also say a big thank you to Fara of Tumbling in Books for helping organizing all of this, and much more. None of this would have been possible without your generous assistance.

Aversion (Book One of The Mentalist Series)
A YA paranormal romance novella by Kenechi Udogu
For Gemma Green’s first time, things should have been straightforward. Find your subject, hold their gaze and push a thought into their head to save them from future disaster – Aversion complete. A pretty simple process given that the subject was to have no recollection of the experience. But Russ Tanner doesn’t seem to want to forget. In fact the more she tries to avoid him, the more he pushes to get to know her. Gemma knows she has a problem but is she facing the side effects of a failed Aversion or has the school’s tennis champ really fallen for her?
Mini excerpt (opening paragraph):
My name is Gemma Green and I am an Averter. You’re probably wondering what that means and why it is important for me to state that I am one. On the surface there is not much difference between me and most other fifteen year old girls, except for the fact that I have the ability to alter people’s minds and stop them from carrying out actions that will unhinge their predestined life paths. I know it sounds impossible but trust me, it’s true. Only another Averter will be able to tell what I am from sight. Well, not really sight. We have the ability to sense things that others overlook. For example, I always know when I’m being lied to. I can’t tell what the exact lie is but I get a knot in my stomach every time I hear one; the bigger the lie, the tighter the knot. It’s clearly not the most enjoyable ability for anyone to have but the older we get, the easier it becomes to tune the feelings out. You eventually get to a point where the only person’s emotions you can tune into is the person you are assigned to. But I’ll get to that later.
Expected release date: December 3rd 2012
