Imprint Cover Reveal

HI GUYS! WOW I have some exciting news (which you probably already guessed from the title of this post)… IT’S COVER REVEAL TIME!

I have been working on this creation for what feels like forever, but it’s finally finished and I’m so excited to share it with you!

This cover was a real challenge for me. I went back and forth a lot on the concept and design of it for so long. I am a huge perfectionist, and it felt like nothing I did could ever be exactly what I wanted. Even with a degree in graphic design, it felt like I kept hitting a wall so many times, over and over again. I debated hiring someone to design it for me; I got so, so close to having someone else do the cover, but financial issues and creative differences kept pushing back. It was so infuriating, because as a graphic designer, I had a vision in mind, but I just couldn’t get it out of my head.

So I finally pulled my family in and asked for their help. After I clumsily explained the general vibe and idea I had in my head, my sister drew up a beautiful concept that I immediately knew would be the one. It was simple, but still conveyed the type of meaning that I wanted. It was perfect.

And now, I’m happy to finally present this cover to you! Drum roll please…

And here we are!

I could not be happier with how this turned out! It works so wonderfully with the story, and I love the the simplicity of it. I’m so grateful for the help of family in a time of frustration and need! ^_^

Blurb:

Like so many bookworms, Paige Turner loves escaping into the world of stories. However, unlike other bookworms, she can literally escape into the world of stories through the ink on the pages.

When two strange men set out to kidnap Paige and her friend Markus, she is terrified. So used to hiding from her problems in the world of books, Paige doesn’t know what to do when the trouble begins to spill into her real life. And when the danger looms and threatens the safety of her family, she realizes that terrified or not, she must fight back. And to do that, Paige and Markus must use the gifts to discover why these strange men are after two innocent teenagers.

But the truth turns out to be far stranger than fiction, and it twists their entire world upside down. Can Paige find the strength to battle her anxiety and use her extraordinary gift…or will she lose everything and everyone she ever cared about?

So tell me, what do you think? I’d love to know your opinion on this cover! Let me know in the comments down below! And don’t forget to mark your calendars: Imprint releases August 1st!

Strayblood by E.E. Rawls // Cover Reveal!

Hey guys! I’ve got some exciting news to share! My friend E.E. Rawls is releasing the second book in her Draev Guardian series! I couldn’t be more excited for her and I am SUPER excited to show you this beautiful cover!

But you’ll have to keep scrolling to see it 🙂

Almost there…

And…

…here it is!

Book Blurb:

“I am the rescuer of the weak. The hope of those who have none. And the executioner of vempar kind. I am the White Ghost—and your worst nightmare.”

With the events of the Festival Duel over, Cyrus wants to focus on training her Ability with metal. But trouble soon comes in the form of a shapeshifter: the White Ghost, who’s determined to exterminate all vempar kind, and he’s seeking the power of the Swan Princess in order to carry out his plan.

Seriously, why can’t people just leave Cyrus alone? She doesn’t want to be the Swan, some reborn hero from legend! She just wants to be with her friends and train to become a Draev Guardian. Is that too much to ask for?

Apparently, it is. The Oracle, who happens to be a faeryn child, can lead the Ghost right to her—and the Impure Nights, as well. Harlow must keep the Oracle safe, but with the Academy’s yearly Hunters Race coming up, things get even more complicated. The Scourgeblood in Aken’s veins is awakening, and to face the powerful shapeshifter, Cyrus’s fellow Draevs-in-training may have to pay the ultimate price…
