Judge a Book by Its Cover

PigmentsOfMyImagination-CoverC1

I originally wrote this whole long complicated post included the WHY but really, that should be for another day.

This is me, revealing the Cover to my new book PIGMENTS OF MY IMAGINATION which will be available to purchase on Amazon on May 30th, 2011

PIGMENTS OF MY IMAGINATION is a YA Urban Fantasy ::ROMANCE::

The eyes are the window to the soul, and Lucia paints them better than anyone else in the world.

I plan to blog about PIGMENTS at least once a week until release day, so don’t blink. Sorry, inside joke.

Take a sec and tell me what you think about the cover, and if you are curious about the amazing artist responsible for this work you can check her out on twitter. You can find a link to her website, and she will be talking about it soon too!

Also, don’t forget about my blog contest, after that I will be running a brand new one that has more to do with the book.

Really love the cover! It's simple yet effective. I think I need to get my eyes tested as I didn't notice the swan right away!

That's a beautiful cover! It's got a lot going on, but not too much to where it become overwhelming. Definitely grabs attention.

Allison, it will make more sense after you read that blog post I will put out next week. "Two Books, Both Alike in Fair Verona"

Although, I wouldn't say soon ;) I have been writing more than half my life. lol

Allison said...

Well, I mean the release is soon! And sure, you write a lot, but this is actually, like, something people can buy! That's big!
And dude, seriously? I have to wait until NEXT WEEK!? *sigh* *glances at watch* *waits impatiently* :)

Gorgeous cover!!! And I didn't see the swan til I gazed at it for a little longer--but that is really need, the layers there. Makes it that much more interesting. :) Hope your book does well! Nice to meet you and your blog (I followed you home from Twitter).
