The Given Cover
So about a week ago I’m minding my own business, procrastinating on Twitter, when up pops a direct message from a blogger I know from over the years, Shelly at Gizmo Reviews. She was contacting me to let me know she had seen the cover for THE GIVEN, the third and final installment in the Celestial Blues Trilogy. She was going to post it on her site, but she noted that I hadn’t said anything about it yet, and didn’t want to spoil the big reveal for me.
Now, guys, as someone who has been beaten to sharing my own cover for, oh, at least the last four books, I can’t tell you how sweet and refreshing I found this to be. I don’t think anyone else has intentionally usurped me in the past, and I choose to believe it’s pure enthusiasm for the covers and the series that’s led to the slights, but after working for a full year on a book it’s nice to be able to do it yourself, you know?
I was so grateful to Shelly for DM-ing me (and, seriously guys, you can do that. You talk, I talk back. It’s like dancing but without the squished toes and onion breath) that I asked if she’d like to team up for the cover reveal. That’s why you need to click on one little extra link to see it.
I’ll post it on my site and networks in a couple of days, but for now it’s Shelly’s. And mine. And yours. So without further ado (adoo? Doesn’t it look like it should be spelled adoo? *shakes head* Anyhoo…) the cover for The Given can be found here. What do you think? And which is your favorite of the three?
I gotta say, I’m loving this one, but I’m hesitant to commit because I say that with each new cover in this series. At any rate, they’re a gorgeous package, I couldn’t be happier, and I think Harper and the cover artist, Larry Rostant, absolutely nailed it.
Thanks to all!
