Prison Nation Cover Reveal

It is time for me to stop dragging my procrastinating, perfectionist feet.
It is time for me to show the final cover for my soon to be self-published novel, Prison Nation.

*gasp*

I have worked on it, alot.  Gone through many ideas, many.  Took tons of photos.  Got awesome help from my talented sister-in-law and great opinions from close friends.  And the final product... I am pretty dang happy with.

It is funny how the idea that you start with ends up being a completely different product.  I had a very clear idea of what I wanted, but it just wasn't working the right way.  I am so happy that my sister-in-law brought this image forward for me to think about, and am very excited to finally see it in print!

So, without further ado... 
*clears throat nervously* 
Here is the cover for Prison Nation:


In the Nation, no one is innocent — not even the children born behind bars. Millie 942B has spent her entire life locked away with her criminal parents and countless other inmates. She believes in the Nation, in its strict laws and harsh punishments.

But when Millie is released on her eighteenth birthday, she finds things are nothing as she was taught. People vanish, never to be seen again. Lies cover every word. Trust is as fragile as ice.

And then there is Reed. Born and raised outside the Prison walls, his dreams and thoughts cause Millie to doubt everything she has ever believed.

What is truly worth fighting for?  If she pushes too hard, she could lose her freedom. If she stays silent, she could lose herself. The clock is ticking, and Millie must find the truth before it is too late.

Well, what do you think?

WOW, Jenni, that's awesome. I really hope your book will be available in print 'cause I am not an eBook fan, and I want to see this cover in all its printed glory! :D

Aw thanks everyone!

Trisha - Of course it will be in print (I still haven't fallen completely for the ebook only world) Once I pick a release date I will let everyone know. It will be through CreateSpace, so the usual (Amazon, B&N...) :D

YAY FOR PRINT!!! It's kind of bizarre for me to think of holding a Jenni Merritt novel in my actual hands. hehe
