Cover Reveal – Serafina’s Flame

I am thrilled to share my newest cover with you all. Behold! (Really, it is so gorgeous, it deserves to be beheld). Leigh, over at Dwell Design has really knocked it out of the park with this one.

Now, I can hear you questioning – what is this book? We’ve heard nothing about it. Not a peep! You have, actually… you just know all the parts of the book as Burn, Flare, and Ignite.

When I first published Burn I thought it was a standalone novella, but then so many of my readers wanted more that I committed myself to writing more of Carmel, more of Serafina, completing the Maiden, Mother, Crone aspect of things*.

Flare followed, focusing on Vana, the mother, and then Ignite was born, following Aida, my maiden. But by the time I’d written those stories I realized they weren’t three novellas, not really, they were all just different parts of one continuous story.

And so I decided to find a new title and combine them all into one book. A novel told in three parts, from three different characters – don’t ask my how I’m going to write a blurb for that, I am not looking forward to it in the slightest!

What I AM looking forward to is finishing the edits on Ignite and compiling this thing into a finished book. It’s been a long time in the making, and I can’t wait to share it with you.

 

*My original plan was for other stories set in the same world, and I still hope to write those some day!

Cover reveal – In The Spirit

Yesterday I mentioned that I’d be able to reveal the cover for In The Spirit this week – well, my cover designer (aka Kate, from Dwell Design) was busy last night and this landed in my inbox just before I went to sleep.In The Spirit E-Cover_SMALL FINAL_18-11-2014

Naturally, it was fairly hard to fall asleep after opening the email.

The model on the cover has a real Alyssa vibe, and I’m really chuffed with how its turned out 🙂 I’ll have the blurb finalized sometime this week too!

OMG A COVER! It feels a lot more real now. Like, this thing is actually a book! It’s a real thing! A thing that people are hopefully going to want to read!

I showed it to a few people earlier today and was hit by the reality of it all. People are keen to get their hands on this book, which is both exciting and terrifying. I just hope they enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
