Blind Sight – Book one in The Celadon Circle series
I have been told that, as an author, I do things backwards. LOL! When a story forms in my head, I find it easier to build upon when I have a visual to inspire me. One of the first steps I take when writing a book is to get the cover art done. The book cover for Blind Sight was created by Megan Parker of Emcat Designs.

Megan and I clicked right from the start and we seemed to feed off of each other’s ideas. Blind Sight is a YA paranormal, and I wanted the cover to reflect certain aspects and details of the story. Since most of it takes place at a campground in Tennessee, Megan added the forests, which surround the campground. The pentagram and ancient rune inside of it are used by characters in the story. The wings represent angels and the girl on the cover is Jordan, the main character.
I am very picky when it comes to my book covers. I want them to stand out. I want readers to notice them and say, “Now that looks like a book I might enjoy!” Some people say that cover art is not important, but most people I’ve spoke with tell me it matters a great deal when they are choosing a book. In my opinion, if an author takes the time to write a book, pours their heart and soul onto the pages, and then sets it loose on the world, then they should make the cover just as special as the story. I think readers deserve that.
