Congrats to Angela Brown on her New Release!

Today I'm excited to welcome one of my favorite authors, Angela Brown, over to reveal the cover for her new novella, FRAILTIES OF THE BOND (Add to Goodreads). Now I'll hand the reins of today's post over to Angela!
Here is a bit about it: Frailties of the Bond is about the NEO – Network of Extraordinaires and Otherworldlies:

Those who answer the call from NEO play their part in maintaining balance in our ever-changing times. With power-hungry malcontents, jealous gods, and even those with misguided good intentions, the fate of our world has oft been held in the hands of unsung heroes such as those that are members of NEO.

But before NEO, these heroes and heroines had lives, loves, issues and interests that didn’t involve saving mankind.

In Frailties of the Bond, it only takes one bite to change a life

Cover design by Heather McCorkle of CP Design
After a hiking trip gone wrong, sixteen-year-old Luca should have been dead. Since then, he’s drifted from one school day to the next, annoyed by the looks of suspicion. When a vampire attack claimed his mother and forced his first shift into animal form, Luca set out for Texas, vengeance bound, only to discover so much more when Aimee crossed his path.

Flesh-born of vampire parents sixteen years ago, Aimee shouldn’t exist. Magic, though, made dreams come true for an undead couple desperate for a child all their own. But this magic came with a price, a cost Aimee discovered after one forbidden bite.

And the cover:

Now, as tempting as it is to ask for a sound off of total love for this book cover, I'm curious about a few other things? How much does the book cover matter in choosing a book? Do you prefer symbolic covers, i.e., everything on the cover means something or directly relates to something in the book? Or just something that grabs your attention, no matter how it relates to the content within?

Thanks for dropping by Angela and best of luck to you on your latest release. I can hardly wait to read it! As a cover designer I'm especially interested to hear what everyone has to say about Angela's questions above!


  1. Congrats to Angela! So excited for her. And you did a fantastic job on the cover, Heather! You're so talented.

  2. Angela is so productive. Good for her. LOVING the cover, Heather!!

  3. Heather, SO MANY HUGS to you for this cover. You did an awesome job. I'm proud to have your work as the face for my novella :-)

    1. Aw, thanks. And I couldn't be prouder to be doing a cover for you fabulous work!

  5. Congratulations to you, Angela! The book looks great, and so does the cover. Well done!

  6. I've seen this book mentioned a lot today on the blogs. Congrats, Angela! :D

  7. Congrats to Angela! As for covers, I like two things--simple images and symbolism. Covers that are too busy and a person tries to fit too much in I find distracting.

    Your covers are very well done, Heather--I especially like Born Of Fire. :)

    1. Thank you so much Angela! That is a favorite of many, myself included!
