I was thrilled that it spent its first three months among Amazon's Top 100 Hot New Releases, reaching as high as #38.
Now, Book 2 is on its way—Bloodpledge. So, to whet your appetite and get those juices running in preparation for its late June release, I'm revealing the cover.
Unlike Book 1—Bloodgifted, which featured Laura on the front cover, a red theme and a troop of Roman cavalry embedded in the background—Book 2 has a purple theme, meant to emphasise the lavender eyes common to the Brethren. My very talented cover designer, Patti Roberts, has also incorporated an Aussie feel to it. If you look carefully, next to Alec's head, there's a subtle silhouette of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
While on the back, there's an image of Laura and next to her shoulder—again, if you look carefully—you can see the Sydney Opera House.
The book description is yet to be added. Hopefully in the next few weeks.
What does everyone think? I'd love to get some feedback, because no matter what the old adage says about judging a book by its cover, we all do it, don't we?
