Cover Reveal: Forget me Not by Amber Stokes
I love it when there is more news to be shared in the book world. The joy is even greater when a group of bloggers can come together to help spread that word and when it’s someone we know and in this case, it’s particularly exciting because it’s for Amber Stokes (from Seasons of Humility or @SeasonsHumility)! Today, we are helping her celebrate her second book (or really, a novella) in the form of a new cover reveal and a giveaway to celebrate it.
Again the designer for Amber’s novel was Lena Goldfinch, same as with Bleeding Heart, which you all probably remember from earlier this year when we featured Amber’s debut. Now, later in 2013, we’ll get to read more of Amber’s works when her second novel comes out. Before we get to the reveal, here’s a little bit about the author:
Amber Stokes has a Bachelor of Science degree in
English and a passion for the written word – from blogging to writing poetry,
short stories, and novels. After her brief time at college in Oregon, she is
now back home among the redwoods of Northern California, living life one day at
a time and pursuing her passion via freelance editing
and self-publishing. You can connect with Amber on her blog, Seasons of Humility.
Without further ado, here is the brand-new cover art for Forget Me Not.
It’s pretty right!?
When I first opened this email, my thought was that the design and emotion conveyed just what Amber would want from her character. Of course I am only going off of the synopsis since I’ve not been able to read the novella, however there is a delicate beauty to it and the blue is just gorgeous. I also like how Amber and Lena “matched” the concepts without being “too obvious.” The emotions are different yet with the heroine and background, this looks well suited to Bleeding Heart while still being its “own” design that tells its own story. What this concept really does is ensure another emotional roller-coaster.
Here’s the Synopsis:
A startling revelation sends Elizabeth Lawson
escaping into a stormy night – and tosses her into the arms of a young mountain
man with secrets of his own. When he offers to take her to the Nevada mining
town where her long-lost brother lives, she accepts. Suspicions and
uncertainties are pushed aside as she struggles to forge a future for herself
by meeting her past.
David has been hiding from his painful memories for years. The solitude and
wildness of the Rocky Mountains are challenge and comfort enough for him –
until Elizabeth’s arrival. Fueled by anger and a sense of obligation, he
strives to take control of his new situation…only to find control slipping
from his grasp with each new emotion Elizabeth evokes in him.
When their journey leads them on unexpected paths, can two lonely hearts find
the strength to remember the good amid the heartbreak?
