Pink VI has a Cover!

Despite the large piles of paper that accumulate around my desk, the books never seem quite real to me until they have attained a title and a cover. Until then, they’re just those large piles of paper.

It gives me great pleasure to unveil the upcoming installment of the Pink Carnation Chronicles. Voila The Betrayal of the Blood Lily!

    hmm…seems more vivid than the previous covers, I’ll have to get used to it-but I do like it anyways. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing Lauren!

    It’s India. She’s a red-head-of course it’s more vivid. (I am a strawberry-blond, myself.)

    So vibrant! Of course totally awesome too.

    I do love the color!
    one thing though I wish these were identified as novels in a series. I also wished they were numbered. I was confused when I first started reading.
    Is the figure cut from a painting? Or is that the actual painting?
    Nice cover. It really helps balance the title its darkness.

  18. Kathrin on May 27, 2009 at 10:02 am

    Wow, it looks gorgeous!! Can’t wait to read it :).

  19. Alyssa on May 27, 2009 at 10:11 am

  21. Robyn on May 27, 2009 at 2:12 pm

  22. Meg on May 27, 2009 at 5:18 pm

  25. Bonnie Snowden on May 28, 2009 at 2:26 pm

    love the new cover. The word Blood always sells 😉 But why aren’t you book signing in Las Vegas yet?

  26. Karen on May 28, 2009 at 6:57 pm

    These books cannot come out fast enough to suit me – I am totally addicted. I am now almost as interested in the Eloise/Colin romance as I am who the newest spy will be!

  27. AmyE on May 28, 2009 at 7:02 pm

    The cover is fantastic. I agree with Karen, addictive!
