Read Write and Read Some More is super excited to be included in the Cover Reveal for Strange Chemistry's May novel, Zenn Scarlett By Christian Schoon. This is a novel I'm really excited about but before I tell you more, first lets reveal the cover!
Release Date: 7th May 2013
Publisher: Strange Chemistry
Synopsis: Zenn Scarlett is a bright and occasionally a-little-too-smart-for-her-own-good 17-year-old girl training hard to become an exoveterinarian. She specializes in the treatment of exotic alien life forms, mostly large and generally dangerous. Her novice year of training at the Ciscan Cloister Exovet Clinic on Mars was going well - until there are a series of inexplicable animal escapes from the school that Zenn finds herself blamed for. As if this isn't enough to be dealing with, her father vanishes under strange circumstances, and Zenn is worried that she has started hearing the thoughts of the creatures around her...
With the help of Liam, a towner boy, and Hamish, an alien bug also training at the clinic, Zenn must try to find her father, rescue the animals and unravel the mystery of who is behind the attacks on the school. And all without failing her first year.
I love the simplicity of the cover and how it resembles all classic sci-fi covers! It's so unique and different to what's currently on the market. I really love the emphasis on the sky and space, I cannot wait to read this book!
After being contacted by the author (who is great by the way!) I have to say that I am really excited for this book and I hope you all are too. Just read that summary. I'm a huge sci-fi fan and as an animal management student, aiming to be a Veterinary Nurse it's even more appealing!
About the Author:
Christian Schoon grew up in Minnesota, and worked his way through college in a succession of rock bands before earning his degree from the U of Nebraska-Lincoln School of Journalism.
Following a stint as an in-house copywriter/scriptwriter at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, he supplied freelance copy for the entertainment industry and scriptwriting for live-action and animated TV.
Currently, he writes from his 150-year-old farmstead in Iowa which he shares with a fluctuating number of horses (generally less than a dozen, but not always), 30 or so cats, a dog, three ferrets and a surprisingly tolerant wife.
The Zenn Scarlett books are his first novels, however he admits to being an unrepentant fan of science fiction and fantasy ever since discovering the tales of Edgar Rice Burroughs in the fifth grade. He can be found at his blog: christianschoon.com and on Twitter.
Thank you to Strange Chemistry for allowing me to participate in the cover reveal!
