Today I get to share with you the cover of my critique partner's book, GRUNGE GODS AND GRAVEYARDS. I'm pretty sure that besides her, I was most excited about getting to see this baby. Yup, move on over, Bob, you get to be third excited- or maybe fourth, after her mom. =) So let me stop rambling for a sec and let you see the purdiness.
Okay, squeeing aside, lets get down to business here. First, there's the misty element to the artwork, giving it a definite ghost tale feel. Next, one of my fav cover elements- silhouettes! Do I ever love my silhouettes. And pay close attention to Lainey here on the cover: she's wearing headphones and is holding some type of CD player. Perfect for a novel set in 1996 about a music-loving girl.
Then there's the gravestones- spooky! And the font which just looks rockerish, with the added bonus of the pops of red. Plus, the tag line? The word 'tethered' is a perfect word for evoking a ghostly longing to still be a part of the living world. And last but not least, there's Kimberly's name at the bottom. Lookin' good, my friend, lookin' good.
So here's where I would normally post the blurb. But guess what? I'm hoping you'll just bop on over to GG&G's Goodreads page where you can read all about Lainey and Danny. It'd be stupendously awesome if you'd help get them out into the world by marking GG&G to read. Also, the very last line of the blurb is just exquisite and makes me all swoony. *siiigh* =)
