Experimental Ashes of Deceit Cover

vs 2 - 2500

The fourth book has even less emphasis on the romance, and more on the culmination of the story arch with Oren and Malick. A lot of things are wrapped up. I went for purpley-blue to give it the edge of feminine. The bulk of the heavy action takes place underground, which doesn’t lend itself to a silhouette, but there are some defining scenes at a country house, so I went for that. I could also claim that the lonely scene emphasizes that, as a human among vampires, Katelina is alone among the monsters.

  1. Another beautiful cover, Joleene.

  2. KNOCK OUT COVER AGAIN!!! Hummmm along with your great writing… you are going to make them irresistible! Lots of love, Emily

  3. I love the look of these new covers and the use of your fonts. I also love the reason why you pick the images you do. I don’t blame Katelina for feeling the way she does. It’d be hard to be the only human, and yet that is what makes the series so entertaining for me (as a reader).

    • I almost changed fonts to something more “traditional PNR” but then I couldn’t bring myself to do it, LOL! I love that font!!

  4. I love the sky against the shadows. Very eerie.

  5. I love the color scheme. Although I’m partial to magentas and purples. 😀
