Cover Reveal for My Girlfriend BItes by Doug Solter

Check out this awesome cover…..

My Girlfriend Bites
by Doug Solter

Expected Publication Date:  July 16, 2013

Blurb:  When he sets out to find the perfect girl, 16-year-old Aiden discovers she's the imperfect werewolf he's always been searching for.

After his "dream" girl rejects him, Aiden tries to commit suicide yet mysteriously survives. Now he feels like a total loser with zero possibility of finding a girl. Enter Bree, the creepy girl with too much hair who is rumored to be mentally disturbed. When Bree gives Aiden a ride home during a storm, the girl's random act of kindness spurs a friendship that blossoms into love. But that love gets tested when Aiden discovers his new girlfriend is a werewolf.
To make this relationship work, Aiden needs to keep Bree's secret from his best friend. Deal with a family of werewolves who want to protect their daughter. Stop Bree from killing the first "dream" girl when she changes her mind about Aiden. Oh yeah, and he has to stay away from Bree during her mating cycle. Girl werewolves can get a little crazy when they're in love.

But Aiden's true test comes when he must save Bree from an enemy determined to annihilate all the werewolves. An enemy who killed all the wolves in Bree's pack. An enemy so terrifying...they give werewolves nightmares.

Too bad Bree can't turn a coward into a fearless werewolf. That bite thing is only a myth. So Aiden will have to do the most frightening thing ever...believe in himself.

Sometimes the boy gets the werewolf.

And now a BONUS an Excerpt:
We roll through the next intersection. Bree swings the big steering wheel, pointing the Oldsmobile into a Quiktrip convenience store. She slips the car into a parking spot and shuts off the engine. Bree reaches behind the seat, grabs her wallet, and pauses. “I’m hungry.”
“Cool. I’ll wait in the car,” I say.
Bree’s mouth twitches to the side. She shoots a quick glance to her little fluffy buddies in the back seat. “Why don’t you come inside with me?”
I have zero money.
“I don’t need anything.”
Bree squints again and her lips tighten. “Come inside with me. Please? I insist.”
That look isn’t a request. Guess she doesn’t trust me alone in her car. Whatever. I pop open my door and follow Bree inside the Quiktrip.
The big convenience store only has a handful of customers inside because of the awful weather outside. Rows of potato chips, chocolate candy, and stuff people forget to buy at the grocery occupy the shelves. Bree bypasses them, heading right for the cold sandwiches.
She opens a glass door, chooses a deluxe roast beef sandwich, and a chilled bottle of water. Interesting snack for a girl. Along the row of self-serve fountain drinks, I spot my favorite grape soda in the world next to the 89-cent plastic cups. I dig into my pocket and feel coinage. I examine my hand. One quarter, three dimes, and a ball of lint. I try the other pocket. One more dime. That fountain drink still wants me to buy it. Would Bree loan me a quarter if I asked her?
Bree places her sandwich, water, and a Texas-sized package of beef jerky on the cashier counter. Damn. She’s no vegetarian that’s for sure. Bree pays with a five-dollar bill, gets back change.
I make my move. “Hey…um, Bree?”
She freezes, almost like she’s forgotten I’m with her.
“Can I borrow like twenty-five cents?” I show her the coins I have in my hand so she knows I’m being honest.
Bree scoops up her change, hesitates. Her thumb caresses a bright-shinny quarter. She then places the coin in my hand. I feel her soft fingers touching mine. Very feminine. Yeah, she’s a girl alright.
Bree walks off without a word. I have to hurry. I fill a plastic cup full of grape cola, pay, and run outside. The rain is lighter but still depressing. I open the heavy door and climb back into the Oldsmobile. Bree starts the car, grabs the sandwich, rips the plastic wrapping off with her teeth…and then freezes as her eyes scrutinize me again. 
What did I do?
Bree shakes off whatever she’s thinking and bites into the sandwich. But not like a normal girl. You know, nibbling on it? She puts a big hurt on that sandwich and chews it. She swigs down some water, holds the sandwich in her mouth while shifting the car in reverse and backing out of our parking space.
I still don’t know what to think about this girl. She’s weird. The stuffed animals. The beef sandwich. Her clothes. The way she acts. The weird vibe I get from being around her in Algebra hasn’t disappeared. It’s only gotten worse.

My Thoughts:  The cover rocks!! Even my son said “Woah, cool!! That’s a book cover!?!”  I had my choice of 5 excerpts, and they all were intriguing.  I picked this one because DUH, it mentioned Algebra :) and I teach it!  I thought it was most fitting :) I’m totally intrigued and can’t wait to read this book! 

You will have to see if you can find the other 4 excerpts on other blogs in the blogosphere, the Hide part is already done Now is your chance to Seek…..
