Permission Granted

I'm so excited! I just got permission to post the gorgeous cover for my debut novel, Afterlife: The Resurrection Chronicles.

Below are some endorsements from other authors:

“AFTERLIFE is a seamless combination of hard-boiled mystery, science-fiction exploration of a future based on cloned survival after death, and a fantasy struggle for the survival of good in an evil world. Merrie Destefano has made a fine start on a promising career.”
James Gunn, Science fiction Grand Master, author of The Immortals

“Life, death and AFTERLIFE—a haunting story that seamlessly blends the hard-boiled twists of cyberpunk with the noir flavor of a Southern Gothic thriller. Gritty and compelling, Destefano's debut tackles the big questions of immortality and faith amidst a labyrinthine web of murder and deceit. Truly high octane stuff, sure to please both fans of science-fiction and mystery.”
Marc Giller, author of Hammerjack

“AFTERLIFE is like smoke in the darkness—intriguing and illusive. Merrie Destefano led me on a gritty page-turning journey of life, death and resurrection. I was riveted from the first page to the last and personally can’t wait for her next one.”
Tracey O’Hara, author of Night’s Cold Kiss

"Merrie Destefano storms the world of urban fantasy with AFTERLIFE, breathing new life into the vast genre of the undead. Gritty, poignant, in the tradition of Bladerunner with the nostalgia of New Orleans. With crisp and beautiful prose, AFTERLIFE blurs the line between the living and the dead to ask life's ultimate questions--even if they take nine lives to solve.”
Tosca Lee, author of Havah and Demon: A Memoir

The release date for Afterlife is September 28, 2010. The book is available for pre-order here:
