INK Cover Reveal!

So if any of you saw the Harlequin TEEN Facebook page yesterday, you would have seen the lovely front cover of INK! If you've seen it before, then, um..well, it's lovely so let's have a second look! (did I mention I'm biased?)

Now here's my author's cut on the cover reveal for Book 1 of The Paper Gods, INK! :D


I absolutely love this cover. I think it gets prettier every time I look at it. It's almost moving, and...eep!

Which is the perfect feeling to have about this cover, because sketches do come to life in INK. And they have their own darker motive.

I LOVE how the team at Harlequin TEEN have captured the two feelings of INK--pretty, but dark and dangerous around the edges. You have the lovely cherry blossoms, and then the dark ink, and it's all dripping and turning dark and dun dun dun.

Seriously, though, it captures the tone of the book perfectly. The beauty and the danger of the paranormal forces in Japan, the dark and light at play in the story, and a hint of the Japanese calligraphy and setting that are so important for INK. It really is the perfect cover for this book, and I'm so thrilled that this is end result!

And at the risk of being a little mean, I can't WAIT until you guys see the whole cover. Seriously!!

So, ta da! The lovely cover reveal. Thanks for letting me share it with you, and let me know what you think! ^_^

(psst--Flap copy on Goodreads!
