Cover and Blurb Reveal for my book, BLOOD SONG

I'm finally able to show these! I'm so happy with the cover and can't wait to meet it in person.


Blood Song: The First Book of Lharmell, release date September 1, 2011 from Random House Australia

I wanted to turn but I was held captive by the song on the wind. I’m coming, I told the voices. Please, wait for me.

When her sister becomes betrothed to a prince in a northern nation, Zeraphina’s only consolations are that her loyal animal companions are by her side – and that her burning hunger to travel north is finally being sated.

Already her black hair and pale eyes mark her out as different, but now Zeraphina must be even more careful to keep her secret safe. Craving blood is not considered normal behaviour for anyone, let alone a princess. So when the king’s advisor, Rodden, seems to know more about her condition than she does, Zeraphina is determined to find out more. 

Zeraphina must be willing to sacrifice everything if she’s to uncover the truth – but what if the truth is beyond her worst nightmares?

So, what do you think? I love how Zeraphina is looking over her shoulder like there's something behind her...because MAYBE THERE IS. *evil laugh*

  4. Thanks all!!

    Braiden, I think the cover might get a fancy treatment or two...a bit of gold on the title and the eagle (who's called Griffen) would look gorgeous.

  7. Oy, I obviously have been living under a rock these past few months because I totally missed the memo about you selling your book! Ahhhh! But OMG CONGRATULATIONS--and your cover is swoon-worthy! Must figure out a way to acquire your baby... no, that was not supposed to sound as creepy as it can be misconstrued...

    YAY YOU!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Oh my gosh, this cover is GORGEOUS! *swoon* You must be so happy, it's completely droolicious and will probably be even more in person.
    And the blurb - oh the blurb! I mean, princess? Blood? Secret? Whoah!
    So if it's coming out in Spring 2011 in Australia, how does a desperate Canadian do to obtain a copy quickly?
