Some of y’all may have seen the first cover for Darkling that I had floating around. It was nice enough, but a lot of people were mentioning it was bland, and finally I glanced at it alongside all the other beautiful fairytale covers on Wattpad and I agreed.
We have a new cover.
This cover is not bland. It is chuck full of deep, rich colours with gold and silver and beautiful things. It is a cover that would make me buy the book. It is this cover.
I love it dearly ❤ 😛
What do you think? Would this stick out to you if you were scrolling through a bunch of results on Amazon?
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll have seen that the release sadly had to be pushed back to August thanks to a family situation. I don’t have a solid date set yet, but you’ll be the first to know when I do. Thank you for your patience ❤
Whilst you’re waiting for Darkling, my own Hansel & Gretel retelling, read Hope Ann’s retelling of the same fairytale! Shadows of the Hersweald just released today and I can’t wait to read it. I absolutely love her books and really recommend you check them out! The first in her series – Rose of Prophecy – is free on Amazon, if you need an extra incentive to take a look. 😉
Hello, myriads of people whom I do not know! Allow me to introduce myself: I am Aria Winslet, and I write fairy tale retellings.
Who am I beyond this? Well, I am a book geek. My bio told you that. My bio also told you that my favourite genre is fairy tale retellings, which is possibly unsurprising to you now that you know what I write. I also enjoy Christian romance and contemporary YA, but fairy tales are forever my favourite. See, I’m a hopeless romantic, and be it ever so cliché, I love Prince Charming. Even when he’s not technically a prince. Kasimir in my Hansel & Gretel retelling (which is coming out this summer, and about which you will hear more soon) is not a prince but a baker’s son.
I am also a chocolate addict (because who isn’t?). I went through a dark chocolate phase but my ultimate love is for the sweet creaminess of milk chocolate. Milk chocolate with hazelnuts ❤
And for the record, white chocolate is fake chocolate.
Lastly, I am a chronic napper. There are simply too many things to do and not enough time, culminating in a stressed and weary Aria who falls gracefully to the sofa, asleep in seconds.
Thank you for joining me even though I am merely one more person out of million internet people whom you do not know. I hope you will return!
