COVER REVEAL: The Sound of Diamonds, by Rachelle Rea
Tuesday, January 13, 2015
Good morning fellow bookish friends. Today, the blogosphere is coming together to help introduce another debut author and one of our blogging buddies to earning the title of author. Rachelle Rea has been blogging for several years now and is in fact, one of the nicest people in this community. If you didn't know, she's a freelance editor who has worked on many prior Indie projects, some of which have been authored by our blogging buddies. Since running her own successful business, she has signed a three-book contract of her own. Today, Rachelle has given those of us who wanted to a chance to help introduce her book to the world. This leads us to more information about Rachelle and the big reveal. Read on below to find out all the details. Bio: Rachelle Rea plots her novels while driving around the little town she’s lived in all her life in her dream car, a pick-up truck. As a freelance editor, she enjoys mentoring fellow authors in the craft. A homeschool graduate and retired gymnast, she wrote the Sound of Diamonds the summer after her sophomore year of college. Synopsis: In Reformation-era England, a converted rogue wants to restore his honor—at whatever cost. Running from a tortured past, Dirk Godfrey knows he has only one chance at redemption.
An independent Catholic maiden seeking refuge in the Low Countries finds herself at the center of the Iconoclastic Fury. Jaded by tragedy, Gwyneth’s only hope of getting home is to trust the man she hates, and she soon discovers her poor vision is not the only thing that has been blinding her.
But the home Gwyneth knew is not what she once thought. When a dark secret and a twisted plot for power collide in a castle masquerading as a haven, will the saint and the sinner hold to hope…or be overcome? When Dirk’s plan fails, could all be lost?
This cover is really very pretty! I don't mind the "artistic," cropped image of the woman. It's a well played design for the plot, actually. Also, I'm glad that heroine Gwyneth's dress is such a vibrant color. This makes the design stand out more. The filigrees beneath Rachelle's name add a pretty touch, giving it an aura of delicate elegance as do the "watermark" designs on the edge of the cover. Basically, it's just awesome to see Rachelle's name on a novel.
Rachelle, I'm super happy for you! It's exciting to be able to read about your process of writing and signing this series to publish. Knowing what a splendid writer and blogger you are, I know the role of author will be something you excel at. Thanks for letting us share in your excitement. Congrats, Rachelle!
