Here it is, the shiny cover of the first book in Tera Lynn Childs' new Medusa Girls trilogy:

I love the subtle reference to the original myth in the twisting end of the braid - it looks as though it's writhing, about to hiss, but only if you already know the story of Medusa. It gives me a delicious sense of being in the know, and if a cover can do that, I think it's well on its way to being a success!

The Medusa girls are three descendants of the misunderstood (according to Childs) gorgon Medusa. Once ordinary teens, they now find themselves in charge of guarding the portal between the world we know and love, and the realm of monsters.

Sweet Venom will be released October 2011. If you'd like to find out more about the book, check out one of these links:
