Cover Art! 'My Life As A White Trash Zombie' - Diana Rowland (Corsair)

'My Life As A White Trash Zombie' has been around for a little while now (since 2011, thanks for helping me out with that one internet!) but yesterday was the first day that it came through my door and the first time that I had paid any real attention to it other than a cursory 'not another zombie book...' thought a couple of years ago. And so a cover art post was born...

I'm a little partial to covers that have the title etc going up the side (don't ask me why, I have no idea...) so 'My Life As A White Trash Zombie' was off to a good start as soon as I opened the package. I also like it when an artist takes one look at the title and then proceeds to completely nail it with the artwork. Nice work, Dan Dos Santos! It's sleazy, not too gory (less is more) and comes with a hint of humour that I'm really after in my reading right now. Which is why I'm reading 'My Life As A White Trash Zombie' pretty much as you're reading this. Have a look at the blurb and then tell me if you have already read the book and what you thought of it...

Angel Crawford is a loser.

Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she's a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who's been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken.

That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn't have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there's a job waiting for her at the parish morgue--and that it's an offer she doesn't dare refuse.

Before she knows it she's dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey--just when she's hungriest!

Angel's going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn't, she's dead meat. Literally.
