Cover Crazy (Oct. 17): Indie Binding Edition

Cover Crazy is a bookish meme hosted by the wonderful people @ The Book Worms.

Monday's here and you know what that means! Time to go cover crazy! This week's edition is highlighting Indie book covers! Well hello! These look professional don't they? Go ahead, feel free to gawk at them!

From GR:
Rae Wilder has problems. Supernatural creatures swarm the earth, and humanity is on the brink of extinction. Stalked by a handsome fairy who claims she is like him, demonkind, Rae thinks maybe it was a mistake breaking the rules by going over the Wall into demon territory. Plunged into a world of dark magics, fierce creatures, and ritual sacrifice, she is charged with a guarding a magical amulet. The changes to her mind and body are startling, but rather than accept her purpose she struggles against who she is destined to be. Throw in a big lust for a vampire who can't keep his hands off her, and life starts to get complicated. Rae is forced to make the ultimate choice: to live and die human, or embrace her birth-right and wield magics that could turn her into something wicked, a force of nature nothing can control.

The reason I love this cover? It is clean. It has a very clinical feel to it as well, with all the white. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but I'm intrigued. I also really like how well it's put together, positioning and everything. This is honestly really good for an Indie novel~ Great work designer!

From GR:
Santa Claus is real. Sure, the story has changed a lot over the years, but all the hard facts point to the undeniable truth of his existence. People just don't want to accept it, so they stop believing. But Santa still visits those who keep believing, despite what they tell their friends at school and fancy parties. Not everybody knows the deeper secrets of the Santa Claus tale. You see, "Santa Claus" isn't really a single person, it is more of a title that is passed from father to son. It has been a Kringle family tradition for generations. Jack Kringle didn't want to be the next Santa Claus, so he left the North Pole for New York City. There he found success and wealth as a scheming businessman, often times trampling on the "little guy" to get what he wanted. Suddenly, his twin brother, Dale, appears in New York on a secret mission that may just teach Jack the true meaning of Christmas. Includes the Bonus Stories: Attack of the Yeti and The Hitchhiker!

OH MY, another movie-poster-looking cover? I love it already! It has a sense of humour to it, which I LOVE. It's very interesting and it makes me wonder why Santa's son is wearing a suit! 


by Jennifer DeLucy

From GR:
Lillian Hunt has never truly lived. Always sensing more to the world than is easily perceived, she fears that her instincts are stubborn flights of fancy, or worse, mental instability. But some things disappearing strangers, tangible dreams, and visits from malevolent creatures cannot be ignored. Before it's too late, Lillian is ripped from the only existence she s ever known and thrust into a reality that she always suspected, but could scarcely believe. She must learn the truth about who she is, the powerful beings that wish to destroy her, and the two men who would die to protect her.

Jennifer DeLucy has created a unique, enchanting tale of destiny and the ageless power of love in her debut novel, Seers of Light. DeLucy's novel charms readers with quirky characters, while sketching a haunting portrait of one woman's journey on the path of the supernaturally gifted. But be prepared. Once you've entered the world of Seers, you will never be the same.

So fascinating! Although I'm not fond of the glow effect of the font, I still think this cover looks really nice~ It has that mysterious feel to it that I really like.

From GR:
He stole a kiss from the wrong girl… 

Left without a soul, 17-year-old Dariana Sanders waited to die. There was nothing left to live for, nothing to feel besides the aching cold that never stopped. Her parent’s marriage was in shambles, and her brother, the only one who understood, the only one who knew how to make the cold go away, was gone forever. The only thing Dariana knew with absolute certainty was that nothing could possibly be right again. Enter Lewis Axel Nialls. Luckily for her, impossible is right up his alley. He can save her from the forces that wish to destroy her. Of course who’s going to save him, from her?

Wonderful cover! Just wonderful! It looks like a cover for a bestselling paranormal novel! I really love it. The font I'm a little iffy about, but I'd probably get used to looking at it if I saw it a lot.


And that's the end of this edition of CC.
(I'll probably be doing another Indie binding edition later on).
