Waiting On Wednesday: 13 to Life - A Werewolf's Tale

Waiting on Wednesday idea from Jill at Breaking the Spine.


13 to Life: A Werewolf's Tale by Shannon Delany

* Published by: St. Martin's Griffin (US)
* Format: Paperback (US)

* On Amazon: here.

Something strange is stalking the small town of Junction…

When junior Jess Gillmansen gets called out of class by Guidance, she
can only presume it’s for one of two reasons. Either they’ve finally figured out who wrote the scathing anti-jock editorial in the school newspaper or they’re hosting yet another intervention for her about her mom. Although far from expecting it, she’s relieved to discover Guidance just wants her to show a new student around—but he comes with issues of his own including a police escort.

The newest member of Junction High, Pietr Rusakova has secrets to hide--secrets that will bring big trouble to the small town of Junction—secrets including dramatic changes he’s undergoing that will surely end his life early.

I think this sounds brilliant, and Shannon is a very cool lady. I'm also loving the cover!

Yes indeedy. I agree with everything you said. This sounds fab!

Shannon Delany said...

Jenny, thank you SO much for WoW-ing 13 TO LIFE! This was a wonderful thing to find on this very cold and snowy morning here in NY! (And thank you for saying I'm a "very cool lady" *blush*). Now that I know this is here I'll pop in a bit today in case anyone has any questions about the book or werewolves ;-).

I see some fabulously familiar faces here (thinking back to Goodreads)--Thank you all for being excited about this book's release. THAT means so much to debut authors. :-)

Now I just want to jump into my revisions on book 2 in the series and make you all proud! :D

I can't wait for this book. I am so anxious to read it.

Jessica Kennedy said...

Me too! I had this one last week as my WoW. :) And I agree. Shannon is awesome! :)

I especially love the title. I can't wait to see what it means. :)

Shannon Delany said...

Hi BookWhisperer and Jess! (And hello to the rest of you--you've made my day!)

Thanks for the enthusiasm!

The title is how the whole book started, really. That phrase kept rolling around in my head and is a big part of the story. I bargained with my publisher to keep the title--traded in my original pseudonym as a result (but that's another story ;-).
