Cover Reveal // The Misadventures of a Life Less Lived by Clayton Gerrard

Fan’s of Drew Hayes’s Fred the Vampire series, get ready! Clayton Gerrard’s debut, titled The Misadventures of a Life Less Lived is full of snark and satire, and a bit of magic realism, too.

And, with its release just around the corner (September 12, 2017) it’s time for a cover reveal + giveaway, below:

“College student” and “clean refrigerator” don’t seem to fit in the same sentence together, #AmIRight? We’re #SorryNotSorry for how gross and moldy this cover is, because you can’t control where someone keeps their life stored up. Confused? Check out the back cover blurb:

College junior Doug has built his entire collegiate experience around having a cool life, a status he maintains by keeping his bookish tendencies and crush on “nerdy” Eliza a secret from his popular fraternity and cheerleader girlfriend. But when he wakes one morning to discover that the life he’d kept in the fraternity fridge (because where else would one store a chill life?) has spoiled, panic ensues. As a high-ranking member of a popular fraternity, having no life is social suicide. He’ll be ostracized, forgotten, and maybe even kicked out of the frat.

Desperate to remedy his lifeless status before anyone notices, Doug embarks upon a mission to replace his ruined life with a similar one. But finding a new life isn’t quite as simple as going to the store. And Doug quickly discovers that if he wants another life, he’s going to have to earn one by running a gauntlet of humbling, and often humiliating, life lessons. Though resistant, he may yet learn that his deceptions have never served him and have only helped enforce the biggest lie of all—the one he’s told himself.

A snarky, often ridiculous satirical examination of what makes a fulfilled life, The Misadventures of a Life Less Lived is a quirky, thought-provoking debut full of clever metaphors and literary allusions.

Pre-order today, through The REUTS Shop, and receive the eBook early, on September 8, 2017!
