So, here it is. My Secrets and Souls cover! It’s beautiful don’t you think? I love the pop of yellow in the title to match the flair between the outstretched hands. I debated whether I should maintain the grey colour in the title of Secrets and Souls, but in the end went for the yellow! I’m hoping the colour will draw the eye!
Below is The Soul Guide cover. I hope the branding is obvious… same font, layout, similar image. I’m hoping this will not only draw readers in, but will be easily recognisable as part of the same series. What do you think?
Secrets and Souls is a 36k novella set forty years before The Soul Guide. It delves a bit deeper into Mellissa’s mindset, Bertram and Mellissa’s relationship and the start of their journey together. There is a twist… I think this is becoming a signature of mine, but there are also some spoilers. If you haven’t already read The Soul Guide you might want to before you read Secrets and Souls.
I will let you know as soon as it’s up for pre-order, but for now here’s the blurb:
“You think I don’t know that you’re keeping secrets from me? I am not the only liar here…”
The last thing Bertram expected after his grandfather’s death was to find himself the owner of Clayhill Manor, a decrepit mansion with little going for it other than musty rooms filled with moth-eaten furniture and mice. But at least he gets to maintain the solitary life he’s used to. That is, until red-headed beauty, Mellissa, walks into his home and changes his life forever.
With one touch of her hand, Bertram finds himself part of world he never knew existed. Where he is the Caretaker, and Mellissa the Soul Guide. Where doors appear out of nowhere and he’s the only one who can see them.
Together they must face a strange new world hidden just beneath the surface. A world which contains the pure of soul and malevolent creatures that lurk in the dark.
But Mellissa holds secrets within her, secrets that hurt her heart. With a past that she’s unwilling to share with a man who is falling in love with her, can they put their feelings aside and fulfil their roles or will her secrets tear them apart?
Apart they are weak, together they are stronger, and the Mephisto are always watching.
