Cover Reveal for Dan Wells’ Extreme Makeover

We’re pleased to share the cover for Dan Wells’ upcoming novel, Extreme Makeover—available November 15th from Tor Books! Equal parts corporate satire, scientific thriller, and apocalyptic nightmare, Extreme Makeover tells the story of a health and beauty company that accidentally creates a hand lotion that can overwrite your DNA.

Check out the full cover below, plus get a sneak peek at the film adaptation of Wells’ I Am Not A Serial Killer.

From the catalog copy for Extreme Makeover:

Lyle Fontanelle is the chief scientist for NewYew, a cosmetics company experimenting with a new, anti-aging hand lotion. As more and more anomalies crop up in testing, Lyle realizes that the lotion’s formula has somehow gone horribly wrong: it is actively overwriting the DNA of anyone who uses it, turning them into physical clones of someone else. Lyle wants to destroy the formula, but NewYew thinks it might be the greatest beauty product ever designed—and the world’s governments think it might be the greatest weapon.

New York Times bestselling author Dan Wells brings us a gripping new novel about a health and beauty company that could destroy the world—if it doesn’t destroy itself first.

And the full cover, with art and design by Faceout Studio:



I Am Not a Serial Killer, the first novel in Dan Wells’ popular John Cleaver series of supernatural thrillers, has been adapted for film! Wells had this to say:

The movie adaptation of I Am Not A Serial Killer had its world premiere this week in Austin, Texas at the SXSW film festival! The film is directed by Billy O’Brien, and the cast includes Max Records, Laura Fraser, and Christopher Lloyd. The buzz so far has been great, and as the author I can give you my totally unbiased opinion that this is the single greatest movie ever made; well, maybe not that great, but still pretty awesome. Because we are an independent production, our next step is to find a distributor to get it into theaters. We’ve talked to few already, and more are approaching us, but until a deal is signed we won’t know for sure how or where or when any of you will be able to see it—you will be able to see it eventually, we just have to patient. We’ll announce more as soon as we can.
