Cover Reveal: Shooting Scars by Karina Halle

Title: Shooting Scars
Author: Karina Halle
Publisher: Metal Blonde Books
Expected Publication Date: May, 2013

A second chance at first love.

There are a few things worth risking everything for - even your life. For Camden McQueen, this is one of them.

Shooting Scars is the second book in The Artists Trilogy and is told from the dual POV of Camden and Ellie.
I've heard just so much good stuff about the previous book in the trilogy, Sins & Needles and really want to pick it up soon! I'm pretty sure Shooting Scars will be just as good. (Random bit of info: Karina Halle, the author, grew up in Vancouver which is super close to where I live! EEKS!)



Karina Halle
The daughter of a Norwegian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Vancouver, Canada with trolls and eternal darkness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadistic appreciation for freaking people out. Like many of the flawed characters she writes, Karina never knew where to find herself and has dabbled in acting, make-up artistry, film production, screenwriting, photography, travel writing and music journalism. She eventually found herself in the pages of the very novels she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with).

Karina holds a screenwriting degree from Vancouver Film School and a Bachelor of Journalism from TRU. Her travel writing, music reviews/interviews and photography have appeared in publications such as Consequence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNomad Travel Guides. She currently lives on an island on the coast of British Columbia where she's preparing for the zombie apocalypse.

This cover is brought to you by Najla Qamber Designs.

What's really neat about this cover is its consistency with the first in the series, keeping the colour scheme, fonts and overall atmosphere the same. This has got to be one of the most gorgeous covers I've seen: dark and intense, with a gritty edge to it. Another thing I admire about it is its usage of space, making the focal point a bit more off to the side.

And look! It's blurbed by one of my favourite blogs, Xpresso Reads!
