Cover Reveal │The Sound of Emeralds

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Getting to help reveal two covers in the space of a week (or so) is amazing. But getting to assist in revealing said covers when they are penned by blogging friends is even better. Today, I'm helping give face to Rachelle Rea's third and final novel in her series, Steadfast Love (WhiteFire Publishing). Rachelle is a rare talent. She has an easy way with words, but still manages to pack history into each of her fictional tales. Her debut impressed me unlike any other historical novel (in a long time) and I also enjoyed her follow up, The Sound o f Silver (review comes later this month), a great deal. Speaking of that sequel, let's have a look at that (which releases this week!) and then talk about 'Emeralds.'

COVER REVEAL: While You're Awake (by Amber Stokes)
About The Sound of Silver

The stalwart saint and the redeemed rebel. One is fighting for faith, the other for honor…

After Dirk rescues Gwyneth from the Iconoclastic Fury, she discovers that faith is sometimes fragile—and hope is not as easy as it may seem. Gwyneth continues her quest to learn more about the love of God preached by Protestants she once distrusted.

Meanwhile, Dirk’s quest is to prevent his sullied name from staining hers. Will his choice to protect her prove the undoing of her first faltering steps toward a Father God? Once separated, will Dirk and Gwyneth’s searching hearts ever sing the same song? - coming October 15th! Amazon Order

ABOUT The Sound of Emeralds

What once was blazing hatred has turned to lasting love, but could the union of a wild heart with that of a lady ever result in more than heartache?

With the help of an old friend with uncertain loyalties, Dirk inches ever closer to clearing his name. Gwyneth throws her faith into good tidings and the promise of a future as a family. But an old evil comes to call, just as tragedy rips apart a fledgling truce. Enemies from the past and grief for the future threaten to tear asunder what God had brought together…

As the date of Dirk’s trial approaches, his fate and his family hang in the balance. Will he be proven innocent of Gwyneth’s parents’ murders—or separated from her forever? How much pain does it take to erode a love steadfast?


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. An Oreo addict, she is also a homeschool graduate and retired gymnast. She wrote The Sound of Emeralds during her senior year of college.

Introducing the face of The Sound of Emeralds

Lovely, isn't it!? Don't you love the lushness of this one? Those shade of green... beautiful. I will confess I'm partial to "Silver's" cover simply because the colors are so like those of autumn and it's my favorite season, but each time I look at this third design, I grow more and more fond of it. It's a stunning depiction of the time and I love the castle in the background. Of course the pretty swirls keep continuity with Rachelle's other novels and the scripts of the word "Emeralds" adds dimension.
Congrats to Rachelle on this beautiful new design. Wishing you all the best with this new launch, friend.
