Cover Reveal: How a Star Falls, by Amber Stokes

Saturday, August 9, 2014

Today, the blogging community has the pleasure of introducing you to the upcoming novel from blogger extraordinaire, friend and indie author, Amber Stokes. Amber's first trilogy along with some novellas - "The Heart's Spring," has two of its novels released including Bleeding Heart and Forget Me Not with a third set to be available upon its eventual completion, Morning Glory. When I learned Amber was writing in a wildly different genre than her sweet historicals fit into, I confess to being excited about it because I am curious about this New Adult genre, and must say that I'm always on the lookout for young adult or more accurately new adult novels, all of which leaves me giddy with anticipation for the eventual release of this novella.
Before getting to the actual cover reveal, read more about the author and the cover designer.

About the Cover Designer
Lena Goldfinch writes fantasy and romance for teens and adults. She's a sucker for a good old-fashioned romance, whether it's a novel, novella, or short story, young adult or adult, fantasy or realistic, contemporary or historical. Elements of romance, fantasy, and mystery have a way of creeping into her writing, even when she's writing something light and contemporary.

Oh, my goodness! Peeps, I love this cover. It's imaginative, has a lovely blue color palette that offers a "comforting" feel to a story that will probably offer some twists and turns and the image itself tells an elegant story that promises to be epic. The model seems to have the perfect look of "fragility," something appropriate to a celestial being as well as the entire look being finished off with a feeling of whimsy.

What do YOU think, readers?

The target publication is November 2014 in e-book format, though just adding in my "two cents," paperbacks are always welcome. *wink*
