Wednesday Flourish/Waiting on Wednesday: City of Fae

Hey Everyone!

It's been a little while since I've done a flourish post, and in the meantime I've had the privilege of working on a number of really amazing projects that I can't wait to share with you. I've been lucky enough over the past year to work with the team at Bloomsbury Spark on a few of their covers, and today's cover is one I'm particularly proud of.

Each cover is its own unique design challenge, but every once in a while one comes along that pushes me beyond what I might have initially thought myself capable of, and City of Fae was very much that type of project (some of you may have seen this already as it was officially revealed last week, but I wanted to share it here as well!). Meredith at Bloomsbury and author Pippa DaCosta were instrumental to the design process, taking a look at my initial layout and helping me to see how it could be bigger, bolder and better, and the end result is something I hope you guys love as much as we do.

Also? This book sounds AMAZING and I need it in my life immediately. New Adult Urban Fantasy is something I couldn't be more excited about!



Pippa DaCosta
New Adult/Urban Fantasy
Releases May 7th from Bloomsbury Spark

From Goodreads:

From the moment Alina touches London's hottest fae superstar, breaking one of the laws founded to protect all of her kind, her fate – and the fae – close in.

Below ground, the fae High Queen plots to claim the city as her own and places her pawns, ready for the battle to come. A battle she cannot lose, but for one small problem – Alina. There are four ancient keepers powerful enough to keep the queen in her prison. Three are dead. One remains … And to fight back, Alina risks sacrificing everything she has come to love.

This New Adult urban fantasy is packed with action and suspense and will have you yearning for more forbidden fae romance.

  8. Gorgeous!! To tell you the truth, I had no idea this was your art, but I have been lusting over this cover since I first discovered it on NetGalley. The way the colors in the background swirl into the girls vibrant dress *sigh* is stunning. :)

  13. Ooh I love this cover, very dramatic and sexy! If I had passed this on Netgalley or a shelf without knowing it was you I would have shallowly made grabby hands. I am so weak when it comes to gorgeous covers. :-) The story sounds cool also, so win win!

  28. Oooo! Why are there cobwebs creeping up her dress? Why is there wispy purple smoke? I MUST KNOW! I love the city in the background and the color palette you've chosen--this cover would definitely catch my eye if I saw it on a bookshelf. Congratulations!
