Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Cover Attractions - Ghostwriter by Travis Thrasher

This is a weekly meme from Marcia at The Printed Page. Join in and see what covers attract other bloggers attention and post your own covers too.

For years Dennis Shore has thrilled readers with his spooky bestselling novels. Now a widower, Dennis is finally alone in his house, his daughter attending college out of state. When he's stricken by a paralyzing case of writer's block and a looming deadline, Dennis becomes desperate. Against better judgment, he claims someone else's writing as his own, accepting undeserved accolades for the stolen work. He thinks he's gotten away with it . . . until he's greeted by a young man named Cillian Reed--the true author of the stolen manuscript.

What begins as a minor case of harassment quickly spirals out of control. As Cillian's threats escalate, Dennis finds himself on the brink of losing his career, his sanity, and even his life. The horror he's spent years writing about has arrived on his doorstep, and Dennis has nowhere to run. (from Hatchette Books)

  1. That is a great cover - rather chilling, in fact.

  2. I love the cover of Ghostwriter and plot looks interesting too!

  3. Sounds like quite a thriller, kind of reminds me of that movie with Jhonny Depp ... umh, 'The Window' I think it was called. Not quite sure of that title but I was forced by my daughter to watch it with her and then had to admit to liking it.

    The cover is creepy cool! I love the lighting. The blood spatter on the pencil and paper are just enough to grab your attention without scaring wimps like me away.

  4. Great cover -- kind of spooky.

  5. Creepy cover...I like it! It fits the title of the book.

  6. Great cover! This book sounds amazing.
