Cover Revealed

My first YA novel, 13 Days to Midnight, comes out in April. Little Brown said it would be okay to show the cover, so here it is! I’m SO happy with this cover. It perfectly conveys the story, the mood, the setting, and the main character, Jacob Fielding. If you’ve read some of my other books, be prepared for something completely different. The advanced reader copy has a letter from my Editor, which I have included here.

13 Days to Midnight

From the moment bestselling author Patrick Carman unveiled his idea for a teen novel that explored the dark side of having a superpower, I was hooked. And as Pat dug deeper into the writing, he seized on a theme that’s especially compelling in this era of humanity obsessed with trumping forces of nature: If you save a life…does it upset the balance of the universe? For you can’t escape death. Death will get you – or someone else – in the end.

It’s a story that could be spooikily spun around a campfire as well as it could unfold on a big screen. Indeed, some early readers have compared it to movie cult classics like Carrie, Unbreakable, Flatliners, and Donnie Darko.

The is Patrick Carman as you’ve never read him before. His electrifying young adult debut will rivet you with its provocative premise, engage you with its starring cast of intensely bonded friends, surprise you with its intriguing link to history, and shock you with its heart-stopping ending.

Turn the page…and start counting down to midnight.
