I’m so excited to share this with you all! I started working on this cover literally months ago, and damn has it ever come far! The process will deserve an entire post in itself, but for now, here is the cover!
I’ve been absolutely DYING to share this with you guys! The cover has been finished for a few weeks now (because I suck at waiting to do things), and at last it’s time to share the cover for Savages with you all!
I’ve been dying to see this cover, and here it is! Finally the day has arrived to share with you all the gorgeous new cover for Untamed!
In case you haven’t heard, Madeline Dyer’s publisher is closing and the rights for Untamed have reverted back to her. She is now in the process of independently releasing a second edition (the only changes are the ISBN, cover, interior design, and that book one will no longer have the opening chapter of book two printed at the end–the actual story itself is the same and unchanged).
I ADORE how Haven‘s cover came out. I mean, I should considering the amount of work I put into it!
For those of you who don’t know, Haven‘s cover was originally a stock photo. I found it on one of my iStock journeys and fell in love with the feel of it. It was exactly what I needed, but not exactly how my main character looks. Honestly, it is EXTREMELY difficult to find a stock photo that looks just like your main character… or any character for that matter. So this is where my photoshop skills came in handy.
THE OTHER PLACE by Elizabeth Roderick
[[[ SYNOPSIS ]]]
Living in Justin Flaherty’s mind has never been easy. Unfortunately, things are about to get much worse…
At eighteen years old, most guys are chasing girls or dreams. Justin, on the other hand, wants to draw and be left alone. He’s been diagnosed with schizophrenia, but it’s more than that. He’s in tune with the Dark Energy that surrounds us all, and can see how it controls people’s actions. Sometimes, the Dark Energy will give him visions, to help him on the road to enlightenment.
When his mother hooks up with a Baptist preacher named David who believes Justin’s schizophrenia can be cured with prayer, Justin knows he has to get out—or risk involuntary commitment in a religious facility.
After a brush with incarceration, Justin takes off to San Francisco, where his drawings are not just noticed, but admired…
Justin’s bizarre and beautiful drawings create a stir in the art world. Meanwhile, he’s homeless, couch surfing, and trapped in a continuous battle with his mental illness. His salvation is a girl named Liria Czetski with a shady past. They’d met a year ago, and she’s appeared in his visions ever since. It turns out Liria has been sharing those visions, something that is a surprise to everyone but Justin…
When secrets surface, Justin is forced to realize that being a genius has a downside. Surrounded by people who want to exploit his talent, he must fight not only for his career and freedom, but perhaps for his life…
I’ve been meaning to do this for some time now, and with Haven just a couple weeks from release, I’d say it’s about time!
Without further ado, this is the cover I came up with, with the help of Friesen Press and their graphic designers:
Personally, I think it does a great job of conveying everything I’ve ever wanted in my cover. I couldn’t be more in love with the font, editing and overall image. I do hope everyone loves it as much as I do, and feel free to share with your friends!
Now for something equally as exciting! I’m going to be giving away an ARC (advanced readers copy) of Haven to one random commenter. The winner will be chosen a week from today. So please comment below on this post for a chance to win a free ebook!
Thank you all for your support, and I’m so excited to share HAVEN with you!
Stay classy internet!
