Cover Reveal // Sachael Desires by Melody Winter

October 27, 2015
Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 2.15.45 PM

Just because I haven’t posted these in a while, doesn’t mean they haven’t been happening. I need to get back in the groove of a posting schedule, so what better way to start than with a cover reveal? (None. The answer is there is no better way.)

This time I’m happy to reveal a sequel cover I created for the beautifully mystifying SACHAEL DREAMS from REUTS PublicationsSachael Desires, by the lovely Melody Winter, comes out next month! Here’s the blurb and cover:


 

During her ordeal with the Sect, Estelle Bailey dreamt of escaping back into the arms of the sea—and Azariah. But freedom came at a price, and though she’s back with the Sachael who’s stolen her heart, she’s also land-bound until the next full moon. And with the threat of Orontes looming ever larger behind them, Azariah, Estelle, and Michael—her once-captor turned rescuer and friend—are on the run.

Following Michael’s lead, they seek sanctuary amidst the natural beauty of the Orkney and Shetland Islands until Estelle can complete her next submergence ritual and Azariah can whisk her away to the safety of Saicean.
​ ​
Secrets, betrayals, and old enemies await them, though, and as events spiral out of control, Azariah makes a decision that puts all their lives at risk, forcing Estelle to face a journey she never wanted to take. With time running out and tempers running high, her only hope to save the man she loves lies in a reconciliation between two kingdoms who despise each other.

Book Two in the Mine Series, Sachael Desires further expands on the intricate underwater world of the Sachaels, and the hostility and isolation of not belonging.​

Cover Reveal // LINK by Summer Wier

June 23, 2015
Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 2.15.45 PM

I’m always happy to participate in my own cover reveals since I’m proud to have been a part of an authors journey to publication. LINK, by author (and good friend) Summer Wier is no different, and an especially fun one to reveal because it’s a bit of a departure from my typical design aesthetic but I’m really (really) happy and excited with how it turned out. There are three books in Summer’s THE SHADOW OF LIGHT series, so I have the opportunity to apply a really cool brand across two more covers! Well, I’ve said enough, here’s the blurb, and if you can’t wait just scroll to the bottom to see the cover:

For seventeen-year-old Kira, there’s no better way to celebrate a birthday than being surrounded by friends and huddled beside a campfire deep in the woods. And with a birthday in the peak of summer, that includes late night swims under the stars.

Or at least, it used to.

Kira’s relaxing contemplation of the universe is interrupted when a piece of it falls, colliding with her and starting a chain of events that could unexpectedly lead to the one thing in her life that’s missing—her father.

Tossed into a pieced-together world of carnivals and gypsies, an old-fashioned farmhouse, and the alluring presence of a boy from another planet, Kira discovers she’s been transported to the center of a black hole, and there’s more to the story than science can explain. She’s now linked by starlight to the world inside the darkness. And her star is dying.

If she doesn’t return home before the star’s light disappears and her link breaks, she’ll be trapped forever. But she’s not the only one ensnared, and with time running out, she’ll have to find a way to save a part of her past and a part of her future, or risk losing everything she loves.

Dreamy, fluid, and beautiful, LINK pairs the mystery of science fiction with the minor-key melody of a dark fantasy, creating a tale that is as human as it is out of this world.

Cover Reveal // The Best Kept Secret.

April 1, 2015
Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 2.15.45 PM

I’m a sucker for a well-designed book cover. Heck, this is my second cover reveal in one day! But it’s totally worth it because this cover is swoon-worthy. From the bright pastel colors, to the tracked out, san-serif font, I’m in love. Throw the author name in the middle of it? *dies*. But enough from me, here’s the blurb, and the cover below it:

In high school, everyone has secrets. Even well-brought-up Emma Fraser.

Emma’s sophomore year started out all wrong. First, her best friend Andy confessed to losing his virginity leaving Emma all alone in the V-Club. Then the rest of her friends got weird and suddenly Emma finds herself feeling like the people she knows best have become total strangers. And total strangers are becoming friends.

When Deegan Burke, a rich, gorgeous senior, asks Emma to be his date for the prom, Emma thinks her luck has begun to change. But rather than being able to bask in this newfound glory, her whole world starts to unravel. And when secrets that once seemed so innocent start to take a very dangerous turn, Emma discovers that true friends are friends no matter what…and some secrets aren’t worth keeping.

Cover Reveal // Deceptive Cadence.

April 1, 2015
Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 2.15.45 PM

Back in February, REUTS signed and announced a duology from best-selling author Katie Hamstead. You can read the full press release here, and the blurb:

Cadence Anderson has the perfect definition of happily ever after . . .

Until she doesn’t. A freak earthquake shatters her life as surely as her home, taking away everything she holds dear. She wakes in a hospital to find that her beloved husband and infant daughter have been killed, crushed by the earthquake’s wrath. Disoriented, injured, and alone, Cadence refuses to accept the loss. So when a man claiming to be her guardian angel appears and offers her a chance to go back in time to save her family, she doesn’t need to give it a second thought. She accepts.

Thrust back eleven years, she now faces the ordeal of high school all over again. But this time, she’s armed with all the knowledge of her adult life and the determined to do everything better, from preventing the loss of her best friend to avoiding her original, drama-inducing boyfriends. She’s focused solely on Austin, her future husband, and is content to bide her time until she meets him again.

But then James Gordon crosses her path. Cadence wants to remain single, but James has his sights set. He is determined to win her over, and he’s very hard to resist. As Cadence starts to develop unwanted feelings for him, she realizes he threatens to disrupt everything, changing the future and distracting her from her original goal. Now, Cadence must choose: deny the unpredictable and exciting path James offers her, or stay true to the life she had and is trying desperately to resurrect. Second chances are more complicated than they seem.

Deceptive Cadence combines the soaring emotion of a heartfelt romance with the innovative storytelling of magical realism, crafting a uniquely moving, intricate tale about love and loss that asks: what would you do if given the chance to right all your wrongs?

Not only did I have a chance to Deceptive Cadence (and its sequel, Diverging Cadence), but I was able to design both of the covers for Katie, creating a fluid concept and brand across the two. Today, however, I’m only able to reveal the cover for Deceptive Cadence, but hopefully it satiates* you enough to wait for the second cover reveal later this year (:

I’d feel weird saying something like “isn’t she a beaut?” because I’m the designer, so for now I’ll just leave this here. I’m excited to share, and I hope you’re excited to see (and read) Katie’s heart-wrenching, but beautiful story.
