Cover Reveal for Snapshots by Patricia Lynne + Update Thursday #1

Hey guys! I want to kick things off today with a cover reveal of Snapshots by my friend Patricia Lynne. Patricia's first novel, Being Human, came out last year, and Snapshots is due out this July. I love the cover for Being Human - it's simple, but really striking. And now for the cover of Snapshots...

Isn't it cool? Again, simple, but striking and eye-catching. Plus the synopsis gets me really curious and excited:

My name is Cyclop Blaine and I am a real person. “You are mine.” I am a real person: heedless of a childhood spent under the supervision of an old man I only know as Master. “You belong to me.” I am a real person: regardless of my teenage years bound by violence as the adoptive son of the Victory Street Gang's leader. “You will obey me.” I am a real person: despite the visions I see in others' eyes. Snapshots of their futures. “You will cower before me.” I am a real person: my life will be my own. I belong to no one. “You. Are. MINE.”  

Doesn't it sound great? What do you guys think of the cover and synopsis?

I got this idea from the amazingly wonderful Jessica from Thoughts at One in the Morning. Every Thursday, I’ll be posting an update on my reading, writing, what’s going on at the blog, and anything else I think should be mentioned. 

READING:
 

Just finished reading:
The Single Girl’s To-Do List by Lindsey Kelk (review to come soon)

Currently reading:
CelebraTORI by Tori Spelling
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa 

About to start reading:
Darklight by Lesley Livingston

I've been seriously stalled with my reading lately. The month is almost over and I've only read two books. Two. I cringe just typing that. I've been in a rut lately with my reading and writing, and I'm having a lot of trouble finding motivation. I'm hoping to get over it soon because I have a ton of books to read, and a book to finish writing!

ON THE BLOG THIS WEEK:

Reviews:
Lucky Stiff by Deborah Coonts

Other:
***Be sure to check out the cover reveal for Michelle Warren's book, because I'm giving away 2 signed Wander Dust bookmarks!***

WRITING:
Despite the writing rut, I managed to get about 7,000 words written between Monday and Tuesday. I was so proud of myself - that's the most I've written in ages. Book #2 is coming along nicely - I passed the 90,000 word mark on Tuesday, and I'm thinking there are just 3-4 more chapters to write. I was hoping to keep up the momentum yesterday, but it just didn't happen. And, although I'm not even finished writing the book yet, I'm already stressing over the book cover. I have absolutely no clue what I want for the cover, and I don't know whether to design it myself, like I did with Blue Sky Days, or find someone else to design it. Problem with that is I can't really afford it. *sigh* I guess I should concentrate on actually getting the book finished first, right? haha

 OTHER:
One last thing. It's been awhile since I created any new graphics for Blue Sky Days, so I was playing around the other day and came up with this:

If you like book extras, feel free to snag it for your blog or pin it on Pinterest or whatever. I just make them because it's fun for me, and it's another creative outlet.


I hope you're all having a great week. Be sure to let me know what you think of the cover of Snapshots!
