The cover for my next book is here.
I LOOOOVE it. There arent' enough adjectives in the world to explain how much I love it.
It is awesome, and I can hardly even handle the creepy/coolness. This cover is Corrine Harlowe and her indigo touch. Hence, the awesome blue tones. And the font for the title is so New Orleans-esque with the corn-stalk-ironwork-ish embellisments, and the tagline. Dude.
Some gifts burn.
I am so excited for you to meet Corrine and read her story and go on her journey with her. It is, for me, a very personal and hopeful journey. More on that later.
Check out the flap copy:
How can the gentlest of gestures cause the most harm?
Caught in an unexpected summer squall Corrine’s first instinct was to protect her little sister Sophie after a nasty fall. But when Corrine reached out to comfort her sister, the exact opposite occurred. Her touch—charged with an otherworldly force and bursting with blinding color—surged violently from Corrine to her sister. In an instant, Sophie was dead. From that moment on Corrine convinced herself that everyone would be better off if she simply withdrew from life.
When her family abruptly moves to New Orleans, Corrine’s withdrawl is made all the easier. No friends. No connections. No chance of hurting anyone. But strange things continue to happen around her in this moody, mystical city. And Corrine realizes that this power cannot be ignored, especially when Rennick, a talented local teen artist, suggests another possiblity: Corrine's ability to read peoples' physio-electricity might actually be a sixth sense that can be controlled.
