Cover Art Awesomeness

Is it possible to fall in love with a fictional character? Because after seeing my (Amazing! Fabulous! Gorgeous! Inspired!) cover art for THREE DAYS TO DEAD, I'm in love. Evy is gorgeous (She's wearing her cross! Important plot point alert!). The background is atmospheric and gritty, and the shadowy man behind her? Buwahahaaaa!

Okay, enough raving (for now).

TADA!

Didja see the awesome Patricia Briggs quote?

I've got the back and spine, too, for added goodness (and official summary).

My name is on a book cover. OMG.

So fabulous; I'm delighted for you :-)

Do you happen to know who the artist is? I'm thinking maybe Chris McGrath, or perhaps Larry Rostant...

-Kelly Meding said...

Wendy - thank you! Me, too! (as if you couldn't tell, hehe)

Tez - Thanks! I'm not sure of the artist. I'll have to poke again. *g* Whoever they are, they have my undying love and devotion.

Hi Kelly - beautiful cover! Congrats on the upcoming release.

I'm always looking for new authors to enjoy. Your book sounds like something I would be interested in. That's a fabulous cover. What an exciting time for you!

Janice Hardy said...

It's awesome! Grats! I'm so buying it when it comes out.

Bill Barnett said...

It's all so very cool!

:)

-Kelly Meding said...

Thanks, everyone! Even after a night's sleep, I'm still sailing over this.

Pat - I do hope you enjoy it when it comes out. And (shhhh!) I'll tell you a secret: there's a character named Pat in the first chapter. *g*

YAY!!!!!! I'm so happy for you!

Awesome cover and kudos to the artist.

-Kelly Meding said...

Every give Sassee B a round of applause for being one of my awesome critters!!!! *hugs*

DA - I want that model's entire body!

Morgan Dempsey said...

Holy cow that looks amazing!!

~Leigh said...

This is one AWESOME cover. I wouldn't walk past it without stopping.

Can't wait to read all about Evy.

-Kelly Meding said...

MD - Right? WHEEE!!

~Leigh - I can't wait for folks to be able to get to know Evy. It's going to be a long summer.

I spotted an error in your blog post. It should read 'My name is on an AWESOME book cover' :D

Congrats!

-Kelly Meding said...

LOL! Thanks, CA! *g*

euclid said...

Is that Evy's own body or the stranger's?

Well done, Kelly.

-Kelly Meding said...

It's the new (stranger's) body. Except for flashbacks to before her death, we only read about Evy in this body.

I've taken to calling her Original Recipe Evy (before death) and Super Combo Evy (new life). Hehe.

euclid said...

I should be so lucky to get a replacement body like that! It might even be worth being murdered.

ReadingIsSoMuchFun said...

OMG! I love the cover wow. Yes the cover caught my attention but after reading more about the book I want it now *g* I can not wait for TDTD to be released.

Btw I have posted the gorgeous cover and about the book on my blog :)

Hugssss

-Kelly Meding said...

euclid - I'm with you on the new body thing. Evy, on the other hand.... *g*

LindaH - Thank you so much for spreading the love on your blog! I left you another note over there. :)

Your book sounds fantastic! I love the cover and the back cover copy is very interesting.

RachaelfromNJ said...

Hi Kelly
I emailed you through your contact page. I hope it didn't go to your spam. :(

-Kelly Meding said...

Rachel - I'm super-embarrassed to admit that quite a few emails ended up in my Bulk Folder. I'm still getting used to that email program (not an excuse), but I've replied.

So sorry! My own brother has been trying to email me, and i found his emails there, too. *headdesk*

RachaelfromNJ said...

Hi Kelly!
It's ok! Thanks for writing me back. :)

D. Robert Pease said...

Congratulations. I can totally agree that seeing your name on an actual book cover would be amazing. I made my way over her by way of a good friend from high school, Theresa Banks. I'm looking forward to reading your book.

-Kelly Meding said...

Hi D. Robert! Thanks for stopping by the blog. Teresa is an amazing lady, isn't she? *g*

Melissa said...

Wow! What an awesome cover! Congrats. Hope you're enjoying the moment

'grats on the book's success!

-Kelly Meding said...

The cover artist is Cliff Nielsen. :)

Anonymous said...

oh, cool! cliff nielsen's quite good. checked out some of his work before i asked :p but i didn't see this particular cover.
i like the knife.. :)

ok, ok, one more question: is the model laura williams or a glorious unknown?

thanks again! and may the second installment be as successful as the first. ^^

-Kelly Meding said...

anonymous - I don't know who the cover model is, actually. After Googling Laura Williams, I'd guess no. But I could be wrong. :)
