Marked Beauty Cover Reveal

Marked Beauty
S.A. Larsen

Ellysian Press, due October 2017

Uncovering hidden secrets can sometimes kill you . . . or worse, steal your soul.

Anastasia Tate has a secret. She can feel the emotions of others through their life energy auras. Not a welcome gift for a teenager. Especially when a sinister presence begins stalking her.

Viktor Castle also has a secret. He’s tasked with protecting humanity yet cursed by an ancient evil to destroy it.

After Viktor saves Ana’s life, her abilities grow stronger. Drawn together, she senses Viktor has answers to lifelong questions. Only he shuns her at every turn, knowing he has saved her only to put her in more danger.

As Ana struggles with her attraction to Viktor, he tries everything to bury his unexpected feelings for her. But they must find a middle ground. For only together can they combat the dark forces threatening both their lives . . . and their souls.

On the weekend, I went into Brisbane CBD to take skyscraper type shots with my new camera. So what ends up being my favourite shot? The creeping shoots of a clump of violets. Typical.

  5. Pretty cover.

    I tend to like the more intimate shots, too. I've taken some good scene shots, but it's when I move in closer that I find a little treasure like that shot there.

  9. Were those creeping shoots on the ledge of something really high up? I'm not a fan of heights, but photography is totally cool. Thank you for sharing my cover, Lynda!

    1. No, they weren't high up. They were in a planter box and I was on my knees to take the shot.

      You are most welcome. I'm more than happy to help.

    1. All I do is spot a potential shot, then attempt to get all the settings right on the camera. The camera does the rest.

  12. The cover is very nice. Wishing S.A. the best.

    Love the photo, Lynda. That happens to me too - the simpler ones usually turn out best. Maybe it's because I don't try as hard or something. Who knows. lol Have a great week!
