FREAK cover reveal!

Since I've already been outed by Amazon and Barnes & Noble, why not reveal the official cover for FREAK?

So happy! I continue to hit the cover art jackpot!

Pre-order at Barnes & Noble, Chapters Indigo, or Amazon.


And here's a sneak peek at the flap copy:

Suspense Magazine chose Jennifer Hillier’s “truly frightening” debut, Creep, as one of 2011’s best novels, while #1 bestselling author Jeffery Deaver cautioned “you better call in sick—you’re not going anywhere until you finish reading.” Now, Hillier returns to the Pacific Northwest college town where one killer’s stranglehold has ebbed . . . but another sick mind has waited for the perfect moment to pick up where the terror left off.

Sitting alone in a maximum-security prison cell, Abby Maddox is a celebrity. Her claim to fame is the envy of every freak on the outside: she’s the former lover of Ethan Wolfe, the killer who left more than a dozen dead women in his wake and nearly added Puget Sound State professor Sheila Tao to the tally. Now Abby, serving a twenty-year sentence for slashing a police officer’s throat in a moment of rage, has little human contact—save for the letters that pour in from demented fans, lunatics, and creeps. But a new wave of murders has given Abby a possible chance for a plea bargain—because this killer has been sending her love letters, and carving a message on the bodies of the victims: Free Abby Maddox.

Jerry Isaac will never forget the attack—or his attacker. The hideous scarring and tortured speech are daily reminders that the one-time Seattle P.D. officer, now a private investigator, is just lucky to be alive. Abby Maddox deserves to rot in jail—forever, as far as Jerry’s concerned. But she alone may possess crucial evidence—letters from this newest killer—that could crack open the disturbing case. With the help of Professor Sheila Tao, seasoned police detective Mike Torrance, and intuitive criminology student Danny Mercy, Jerry must coax the shattering truth from isolated, dangerous Abby Maddox. Can he put the pieces together before Abby’s number one fan takes another life in the name of a killer’s perverted idea of justice?

Stay tuned! Big fat giveaway coming in the next few weeks! And I really do mean BIG. Think . . . "freak". Maybe flash fiction. Definitely gift cards. And, of course, signed ARCs!

  4. Speaking of "CREEP," I've been creepin' on this blog since your first novel released. Finally decided to speak up. The new cover looks fantastic, and the story sounds great. I'm pretty excited for this.

    I'm a wannabe writer, and found your first novel EXTREMELY inspiring. CREEP is one of my favorite books. Wrote up a nice review for it and everything.

    Best of luck with your future projects. :)

  40. Your psychological thriller sounds fascinating. I wrote a post on serial killers on my blog a few weeks ago from a conference I attended and I'm a big fan of Dan Wells, author of the novel "I Am Not a Serial Killer" and who was presenting at the conference. A serial killer named Bianchi killed someone in my neighborhood where I grew up. Creepy! We used to play night games in the yard of the where he did it. I'll definitely have to read your books.
