Book Covers and Book Lovers

I was recently presented with an opportunity I just couldn't pass up.

Wanna know what it was?

Are you sure?

Okay, okay, I'll tell you...

I was approached by the extremely talented up and coming author, Amanda Brice, to design a book cover!

(*squeals with delight*)

Amanda is self-publishing her award-nominated book,

Codename: Dancer

What do ya think? Pretty eye catching, huh?

Wanna know what it's about? Here's a blurb from the author herself:

Aspiring ballerina Dani Spevak is thrilled when hit TV show Teen Celebrity Dance Off comes to the campus of her performing arts boarding school. She trades the barre for the ballroom and gets set to cha-cha-cha to stardom with Hollywood wonderboy Nick Galliano.

But someone wants her off the show. Bombs, poisoning, arson… Will Dani's 15 minutes of fame be over before she reaches age 15? Dani and her friends are suddenly at the center of some serious sabotage. And if she doesn’t find out who is behind it, her next pirouette could be her last.

It's like “Nancy Drew in toe shoes” in this light-hearted tween mystery, a finalist for Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart® Award for Best Young Adult Romance.

Oooh how exciting! I guarantee you, this book is worth reading. Young romance, suspense, mystery, what more can you ask for?

I have to say, designing this book cover was one of the funnest things I've done in awhile. A special thanks to Amanda Brice for asking me to do this!

Now go make something, and enjoy the day!

  1. Amy, thank you so much for designing one of the most visually stunning YA covers I've seen in a long time. I absolutely adore it, and hope my words inside the book can do it justice!

    It was a blast to work with you!
