Sunday Flourish: This Is Your Afterlife

Okay. Clearly I'm a little all over the place with my flourish posts, but in my defense, I'm not always sure when the official reveal for a cover is going to take place so I'm just going with the flow and sharing my cover design work whenever I'm given the green light!

A little while back I was contacted by the amazing team at Bloomsbury Spark with an offer to work on one of their upcoming paranormal young adult titles, and I may or may not have fallen out of my chair in my haste to respond with a resounding YES. What followed was an opportunity I'm ever-so grateful for, and I couldn't be more excited to share with you today the cover for debut author Vanessa Barneveld's This is Your Afterlife.

This Is Your Afterlife releases October 21st, and I hope after seeing the cover below and checking out the blurb you guys will be looking forward to this one as much as I am!

THIS IS YOUR AFTERLIFE

 
When the one boy you crushed on in life can't seem to stay away in death, it's hard to be a normal teen when you're a teen paranormal.

Sixteen-year-old Keira Nolan has finally got what she wanted—the captain of the football team in her bedroom. Problem is he’s not in the flesh. He’s a ghost and she’s the only one who can see him.

Keira's determined to do anything to find Jimmy's killer. Even it if means teaming up with his prickly-yet-dangerously-attractive brother, Dan, also Keira's ex-best-friend. Keira finds that her childish crush is fading, but her feelings for Dan are just starting to heat up, and as the story of Jimmy’s murder unfolds, anyone could be a suspect.

This thrilling debut from Vanessa Barneveld crosses over from our world to the next, and brings a whole delightful new meaning to "teen spirit".

  2. Ooooh, so awesome! Big congrats on being contacted by Bloomsbury Spark! I hope it'll be the beginning of more and more publishers contacting you!!

    And the cover is absolutely wonderful! I love the colours and the fading guy that is there but not really, going with the summary, I'd say it captures the book very well! Brilliant job as always!

  9. *HIGH FIVE VANESSA!!!!* I definitely had to read through the initial email from Meredith multiple times just to make sure it said what I thought it said. I'm so glad this first project was for THIS IS YOUR AFTERLIFE, it's fun to share firsts with someone else!

  15. This is so beautiful, Jenny! I think this is my most favorite cover of yours to date. I may or may not have said that in your other reveals but whatever. :P And that color palette! Love it! Super congrats that Bloomsbury contacted you. Hoping for more cover deals for you in the future. :D

  16. Oh my gosh Jenny this is gorgeous!! I absolutely love the typeface (or font or whatever it's called), and the cover image is breathtakingly lovely! As you probably know I'm a total cover whore and I would totally pick this up without even reading the back, but the story sounds great too - win win! I love ghostly mysteries and add in some romance and I'm sold. :-)
