This Adventure Ends Blog Tour: This Adventure Creates


Happy Friday Everyone!

It's been a tour kind of week this week, and I'm wrapping things up today with a very special tour for This Adventure Ends, the upcoming YA release from Emma Mills. A tour that involves Crayola markers and a teeny tiny canvas.

As part of the tour, a handful of us were asked to pick a verb to pair with "this adventure" and then create an artistic masterpiece (or not, as the case would be with me) that represents the theme we've chosen. Since I spend my days designing book covers, I went with "This Adventure Creates" as it so perfectly fits the job I love so very much.

As it turns out however, washable markers and canvas are not my medium, and my "masterpiece" turned out a little bit wonky. You see, I can't draw anything without sketching it out in pencil first, and when I went to color everything in, I quickly discovered that washable markers and pencil lines are not the best of friends. I had to stick with darker colors to try and hide the pencil otherwise I got a muddy mess, but oh well, I had fun with it anyway!

Behold the glory that is my "This Adventure Creates"!


Apparently my wand of creativity spews a bunch of upside down commas, who knew? O.o I hope you guys got a kick out of my piece and add This Adventure Ends to your must-have lists!

THIS ADVENTURE ENDS
Releases October 4th from Henry Holt & Co.


Sloane isn't expecting to fall in with a group of friends when she moves from New York to Florida—especially not a group of friends so intense, so in love, so all-consuming. Yet that's exactly what happens.

Sloane becomes closest to Vera, a social-media star who lights up any room, and Gabe, Vera's twin brother and the most serious person Sloane's ever met. When a beloved painting by the twins' late mother goes missing, Sloane takes on the responsibility of tracking it down, a journey that takes her across state lines—and ever deeper into the twins' lives.

Filled with intense and important friendships, a wonderful warts-and-all family, shiveringly good romantic developments, and sharp, witty dialogue, this story is about finding the people you never knew you needed.

  1. Well at least they're very cute upside down commas! :D I love the cover of TAE, it gives me the urge to smear the paint with my hands.

    1. "I have been a regular visitor to your blog since September, and I really love your blog. I have bookmarked it and I visit your blog everyday but the yearning to visit your blog never stops. I am not been dramatic. Its true.
      Just one quick question Harsh, I wanna blog professionally and I wanted to have my own domain from the very start. Since you mentioned in the beginning of this article that one should start blogging in blogspot for atleast a month, I am confused now. Should i start blogging in blosgspot or wordpress.com? And if I blog there can i move my contents from those platforms to my own self hosted domain once i get one?"

  7. I am impressed. You never cease to amaze me. That was no small feat to create that on a small canvas.

  8. I do love your designs even though you aren't happy with it. We never are with our own work, are we? :) Next time mark out the square on sketch paper or use tracing paper (so you can see through it). Then mark it out with marker first. Might help? I've done that when I don't want pencil marks.
