Received a Koontz website newsletter about ASHLEY BELL with a link to the site's official page for the book.

Awesome cover. I think this is my favorite in a long time.

After looking at it for a while, and posting an update on the portal page, I think I have to agree with you. Normally, I don't like model photography as a book cover; there are so many bad ones, and I just habitually prefer graphic design original artwork for my book covers.

But I have to admit, this is great Koontz cover. Up there with the best of the best.

We should do a poll for best Koontz cover. Haven't had a good poll in a while. I'll start thinking about it.

Amazon is showing a December 8 release now and DK's facebook page posted a pic with that date on it.

Good. I'm in the mood for a Dean Koontz book soon, even if it's a few months away. I can't read lately, I've given up on everything I've started. I'm thinking of pulling down Breathless from the shelf and read that again, see if I can stick with it. It's one of my favorites. I wish there was more detail to the Ashley Bell synopsis.
I am inclined to believe in parallel worlds filled with darkbound Snow and Odd adventures.

Amazon has a longer synopsis;

The girl who said no to death.

Bibi Blair is a fierce, funny, dauntless young woman—whose doctor says she has one year to live.

She replies, “We’ll see.”

Her sudden recovery astonishes medical science.

An enigmatic woman convinces Bibi that she escaped death so that she can save someone else. Someone named Ashley Bell.

But save her from what, from whom? And who is Ashley Bell? Where is she?

Bibi’s obsession with finding Ashley sends her on the run from threats both mystical and worldly, including a rich and charismatic cult leader with terrifying ambitions.

Here is an eloquent, riveting, brilliantly paced story with an exhilarating heroine and a twisting, ingenious plot filled with staggering surprises. Ashley Bell is a new milestone in literary suspense from a long-acclaimed master.

Cool. I was so happy with the release date being pushed forward an entire month. Apparently there's also a real Ashley Bell. She's an actress. Nothing to do with this novel, of course, just some trivia.
