Hello, dear readers, and welcome!
I hope you're having a wonderful week -- and happy 1st day of Autumn (at least if you live where I do)! I'm extremely excited for today's cover reveal, and even more excited about the upcoming Holidays. It's almost October, and soon we will be celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas! Not that I want to rush things, because I don't; I just love this time of year.
As I revealed in last week's post, today I will be sharing the cover of the newest Snowflake Triplet story with you. I can't believe that it's been almost six years since I first released Clara Claus -- and I definitely can't believe that we're up to 11 (or soon to be 11) published stories in this series so far!
The Snowflake Triplet has been such a joy to write, and though I'm excited for my first series to be officially completed and published next year, it's a little sad at the same time. I haven't put "the end" on Clara Frost yet, but it's coming. This series has been wonderful to share with my readers, and I really appreciate everyone's support.
This particular short has been different in so many ways -- from the cover, to the story itself. In fact, I believe it's actually my favorite short so far. I loved writing the interaction between this set of characters: especially the interaction between Jack and Holly as they meet for the first time.
As a bonus treat, check out my latest interview on AwesomeGang.com (where you can find links to great free reads, too!), which features some extra details about this short. Thanks so much to the wonderful people at AwesomeGang for giving me the opportunity to do the interview.
And now, without further ado, the cover of the newest story!
Inspiration for the Cover:
For this cover, as I said above, I wanted to do something a bit different.
The Wind brothers (North and South) are a big part of this short, and so I wanted to do a cover that was tied to the two of them (and you can thank Holly for the added "sparkles", and of course Jack for the frosty look).
When searching for ideas, I looked at older, more traditional renditions of the North Wind. Quite a few are either a cloudy face, or a cloud that vaguely resembles a face, blowing cold air. So, I took that idea of clouds and air and used it above.
In the midst of hardship, family is the key...
After the events of Clara Snow and North of Dreams, the Winter Immortals have been shaken down to their very core.
New to Winter, Holly finds herself thrown into the middle of a war between the past and the future. Called to a secret meeting featuring Clara's closest friends, Holly meets South and Jack Frost. But camaraderie between Immortals is not the only reason they're there -- for the Wind brothers are about to break a sacred oath, and let loose a secret that will change the direction of their adventure to free the Snow Queen.
