Yellow Locust by Justin Joschko
Release Date: May 8, 2018
Selena Flood is a fighter of
preternatural talent. But not even her quick fists and nimble feet
could save her parents from the forces of New Canaan, the most
ruthless and powerful of the despotic kingdoms populating
Forced to flee the tyrannical state
with her younger brother Simon in tow, Selena is now the last chance
for peace in a continent on the verge of complete destruction.
In her pocket is a data stick, the
contents of which cost her parents their lives. Selena must now
ensure it reaches the Republic of California—a lone beacon of
liberty shining across a vast and barren wasteland—before it’s
Between New Canaan and California
stretch the Middle Wastes: thousands of desolate miles home to
murderers, thieves, and a virulent strain of grass called yellow
locust that has made growing food all but impossible. So when Selena
and Simon stagger into Fallowfield, an oasis of prosperity amidst the
poisoned plains, everything seems too good to be true—including the
warm welcome they receive from the town’s leader, a peculiar man
known only as The Mayor.
As Selena delves deeper into the
sinister secrets of this seemingly harmless refuge, she soon learns
there is a much darker side to Fallowfield and the man who runs it.
Before long, she must call upon the skills she honed in the fighting
pits of New Canaan to ensure not only her own survival, but that of
her brother, in whom the Mayor has taken far too keen an interest.
And she’d better act fast, for an
all-out war inches ever closer, and New Canaan is never as far away
as it seems.
Joschko is an author from Niagara Falls, Ontario. His writing has
appeared in newspapers and literary journals across Canada. Yellow
Locust is his first novel. He currently lives in Ottawa with his wife
and two children.
I love most about my cover is the mood it evokes. My favorite book
covers have always been the ones on the classic Penguin paperbacks: a
few minimalist pen strokes capturing a character, a setting, or
merely a symbol of the novel’s theme. Yellow Locust’s cover
harkens back to that style while still feeling modern. An army of
shadowy grass leaps from the left of the page, advancing into a
yellow sky. It looks forlorn and menacing, but doesn’t give much
away. Aside from its obvious play on the title, the use of yellow
suggests warning and decay. You can tell this grass is not to be
trusted, that terrible secrets lay behind its fronds—but what are
