New Cover for Senior Year Bites by J.A. Campbell

Presented by:
Sparkle Blog Button

J.A. Campbell is a friend of mine and an author whose books I enjoy. She's been on the blog many times and today I'm participating in a reveal for the new cover to "Senior Year Bites". Previously published by Decadent Publishing, it's been re-issued by Untold Press and has been given a new cover. It was supposed to be released this week but it went up early and is available now. I had the pleasure of re-reading it when I helped with the proofreading of the new edition. You can see my review of the earlier edition here.

And now for the cover -

Senior year is supposed to be fun: boys, dances and graduation. It's significantly harder to enjoy it when you're dead.
Thanks to an innocent game of Truth or Dare, I wound up sleeping in a graveyard. Probably not the brightest thing I've ever done, but thanks to a couple of well placed fangs, I'm here to tell the tale.
Vampires might stalk pop culture, but they’re just myths, right? Yeah. Not so much...
Everything seems a lot more difficult when you’re a nocturnal creature of the night, especially school. I was managing, but couldn't keep it hidden from my friends. Steph decided that we should be cool, like superheroes, and fight crime.
I’m a vampire, not a hero. Living in a sleepy New England town, crime is a little harder to come by. At least it is until a serial killer moves into the area. He’s got the authorities stumped, but then again, the cops don’t have a teenage, blood-sucking, non-hero on their team. It doesn't take long for me to discover the world is full of monsters. I may be one of them…but will I turn out to be the hero, or the killer everyone is looking for.


clip_image005Julie has been many things over the last few years, from college student, to bookstore clerk and an over the road trucker. She’s worked as a 911 dispatcher and in computer tech support, but through it all she’s been a writer and when she’s not out riding horses, she can usually be found sitting in front of her computer. She lives in Colorado with her three cats, her vampire-hunting dog, Kira, her Traveler in Training, Triska, and her Irish Sailor. She is the author of many Vampire and Ghost-Hunting Dog stories and the young adult fantasy series Tales of the Travelers. She’s a member of the Horror Writers Association and the Dog Writers of America Association and the editor for Steampunk Trails fiction magazine. You can find out more about her at her website:



So, what do you think? At first, I was nostalgic for the old cover but the more I look at this one, the more I like it. It certainly gives that urban fantasy vibe, which the previous cover didn't.
