Found this awesome cover...

. . . for Kelly Keaton's new young adult novel, DARKNESS BECOMES HER. ;-) Love the mood and look of it so much! The tree will be a clear spot gloss design over the black cover. My publisher is discussing printing this on metallic stock to bring out the silver in the gate, and possibly embossing the gate, and maybe the title as well. Whatever they do, I'm sure it will look stunning! And I'm over at Riding with the Top Down today.

Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.
