Cover Reveal : Summer In Salem

Teagen’s summer has been turned upside down by a body, a pentagram necklace, and an old flame.

Nine months ago, Teagan Matthews' boyfriend disappeared and took her sense of stability with him. But when the opportunity to live with her aging grandmother in Salem arises, she decides it's time to get on with her life. A new home, new job and new friends are adding up to a beautiful summer...

...until a young girl's body shows up one night in town, wearing a necklace exactly like Teagan's.

Now a guy looking remarkably like her missing boyfriend has shown up in town along with a mysterious stranger who may have some answers that Teagan has desperately been searching for. Teagan must now decide who to trust because it could be matter of life and her death.
 Expected publication: September 2012

My Thoughts: 
WOW! I love this cover. For many reasons;  There is no pretty girl on the cover! Kudos for stepping outside of the box! I Love the gorgeous sunflower and starry background. It adds a wonderful vibe that is simply.. magical. I also really enjoy how the colors in the Title match the colors in the flower and background! A simple white would have been... well.. just that. Simple, and boring. This cover has a sense of.. dark beauty. We know from the description that this is a story about Magic. A pentagram necklace and a mysterious stranger? I predict "something wicked this way comes." ;) I also find it really wonderful that the colors in the cover art reference colors displayed on a .. particularly witchy holiday. All Hallows Eve! Basically, I love this cover from start to finish. and CANNOT wait to read the story!

Brina Courtney Won me over with her first YA paranormal series. Cryptid Tales... And I can't wait to see what she has in store for her readers next! 

Haven't read Reveal or Capture yet!? Well.. GET ON IT!

  4. Initially I think this cover is striking. The color palette is great and really pops. My only gripe is that I personally don't like it when they use one giant letter for two separate words. My brain doesn't really make that big 'S' go with "salem" so I read it as Summer in Alem.

  5. LOVE this cover! It is so different and the sunflower stands out against the dark background. The description has me very curious. I want to read this one now, too!


I love comments :) Feedback,recommends, you name it !
