This sample book cover was created for Pam Sharma’s novel “Under”.

Bubbles blocking his vision, he tugged hard on his life cord. Up he moved. Ages passed by as he started to choke on his own breath. His finger hit the bite of cold air and he inhaled the musk of the sea. Opening his eyes, Kyle rolled over to check for the next set.
