Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today, I am honored and very excited to reveal the cover and details for BLOOD AND WATER, a post-apocalyptic Young-Adult novel penned by my good friend, Briana Morgan. She is a wonderful young author, highly driven and dedicated to her craft, destined for greatness!
I’ve been lucky enough to chronicle Briana’s progress, from a humble interview in January, to a comprehensive breakdown of her writing process for BLOOD AND WATER. Her novel has a bright future ahead of it, and I’m thrilled to announce that Briana will soon be self-publishing BLOOD AND WATER on most major platforms – put this one on your to-be-read list, it’s certainly not to be missed!
Now, for the long-awaited reveal of BLOOD AND WATER’s cover:
“Jay needed so many things. He needed Maia to be well. He needed a cure for both of them. He needed the world to somehow start making sense again. Above everything, he needed someone to tell him why these terrible things were happening to him.”
Seventeen-year-old Jay Harris lives in a world struck down by a deadly virus. His parents are dead, along with half the planet. When Jay’s sister Maia falls ill, he must find a cure before he loses her, too. But unbeknownst to Maia, Jay is also sick… and he’s running out of time to save them both.
When Jay’s friends tell him there might be a cure for him in France, he must decide whether to pursue it. The journey will be difficult and dangerous, especially in his weakened state, but with little time left—for himself and for Maia—it soon becomes clear there’s no other choice.
Jay leaves the relative comfort of London to search for help, knowing he may never find it. Along the way, he experiences the effects of disaster on the bonds of friendship and fluctuating notions of family. These teens, decimated by a dangerous plague, face stark choices in their search for help, not knowing if their efforts will end in loss and pain. Will Jay and Maia find a cure before the virus takes them?
Want to know more about Briana herself? Check out my interview with her, and read her bio below:
Briana Morgan is a YA and NA writer, editor, and blogger who loves dark, suspenseful reads, angst-ridden relationships, and complicated characters. Her interest in Jay Gatsby scares her friends and family. You can find her in way too many places online, eating too much popcorn, reading in the corner, or crying about long-dead literary heroes.
I’m very pleased to help announce BLOOD AND WATER, and if you like the sound of her novel, please share the cover reveal to help spread the word about this excellent YA novel!
