Teehee, the thing is, I chanced upon a very special blog after mindlessly clicking link after link. And, guess what? This very special blogger has amazing photoshop skills, skilfully creating stunning book covers just for the fun of it! And we all know there are some really pretty covers floating in the YA pool right now, yet nonetheless, the cover she created really does stand out.
Before I get sidetracked though, the real highlight of this post is actually a very wonderful question posted by her. She gave us the liberty of dreaming.
If that very picture was to be a book cover, what would you name the title as?
Okay, now on with what I thought. The first thing that came to my mind was "Raven in Gold".
Seventeen-year-old Raven never thought that she would be dancing in the arms of this handsome boy under a sparkling chandelier...
Lost in the woods of Romania during a study trip, Raven is kidnapped to a castle out in the wild. Beautiful girls from all over the world are gathered there to vie for the affections of the ridiculously beautiful son of Count Dracula. Swept up into a whirlwind of glamorous events, Raven is transformed into a lady. But behind alluring smiles and glittering masks, there are deadly secrets to hide. With schemes and betrayals at every corner, will Raven find out who her heart belongs to?
My sad attempt at writing a blurb...
But, yay! The creator of the cover liked the name, Raven, so *drumroll*... Here's the final product!
Many thanks goes to Lea @ Paper Dreams who first debuted this cover here. Without her, this post would have been non-existent!
Visit her and prepare to feast your eyes on gorgeous designs!
And, don't forget to tell me what you think. I am prepared to be blown away! ;)
