The Waking Land Cover Reveal

Here is another young adult fantasy trilogy that I’ve been working on has had a cover reveal!

The brief was to create a beautiful and lush image with filtered lights and rich colours. The main character is an 18 year old girl who has the magical ability to speak to the tree and rocks with her hands, so it is important to convey a dark forest with this sense of overgrowing greenery.

Bookshop in January 2017

These new books are out and about in bookshops now.

The Lovers paperback with a new Afterword is available to purchase. It is really worth reading as it is an important book that talks about both human and women’s rights. Young lovers, Zakia and Ali have had to flee their homes as their marriage is forbidden by ethnic and religious differences in Afghanistan. This edition gives the latest update on their situation since the hardback was published last year.

About the book:

Enter a world where fire and ice are mortal enemies…

Ruby is a Fireblood. In a land ruled by frost, her very existence is a crime. She’s spent her whole life in hiding.

Until the day Frostblood soldiers raid her village and kill her mother. The day she swears to avenge her people.

She must travel deep into the heart of the enemy, to the court of the Frost King, with only the mysterious warrior Arcus – a Frostblood rebel – by her side. But with alliances between flame and ice strictly forbidden, is Arcus friend or foe?

Ruby will only have one chance to destroy the maniacal ruler who took everything from her. But she has no idea just how hot her fire will burn…

Frostblood Cover Reveal

The Frostblood cover was revealed yesterday! This is the first book in the epic trilogy by Elly Blake. The cover brief was to create a beautiful and striking fantasy novel with a symbolic element. Also to bear in mind that the next two books in the series needs to look distinct but work together as a set.
