Publishing News: Cover Reveal

27 Mar

Website Update: 11 p.m.: Honorable mention, Cameron Rogers, now has his website linked. 

The day has come, and I am so proud, happy, excited, and–well–overwhelmed towards the final steps of publishing Minutes Before Sunset. I’ve received the ISBN #978-0-615-78812-8, and my copyright certification is in the mail. But seeing a completed cover was an emotional achievement for me, because I wanted to collaborate with another person who’s following their dreams, and I got the opportunity to do so! (I’ve also created an event on Goodreads that you can join here.) I’ve also changed my email to shannonathompson@aol.com. 

Honorable mentions go to:

1. Cameron Rogers

2.  Gerik Yann (no website)

3. Ky Grabowski–her author website (she’s great by the way!) can be found here.

The winner of the cover contest is none other than Autumn Fog Photography, done by photographer, Grace Griffin. You may recognize her name, because I interviewed her on my October 8th post: Inspiration Meet: Grace Griffin. Her photography company, Autumn Fog Photography, also did my photo for my website. (She’s truly talented; check out her photography page here.) Congrats to Grace Griffin! Thank you for your dedication, passion, and hard work. You truly are an inspiration. And I feel so lucky to be able to work with her. Her art, as I feel, represents Minutes Before Sunset in ways I couldn’t imagine. Special thanks to the beautiful Audrey Yazel for modeling. So…here it is with the synopsis:


She was undoubtedly a shade, but I didn’t know her.

Eric Welborn isn’t completely human, but he isn’t the only shade in the small Midwest town of Hayworth. With one year left before his eighteenth birthday, Eric is destined to win a long-raging war for his kind. But then she happens. In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she’s powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he’s determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.

He had gotten so close to me—and I couldn’t move—I couldn’t get away.

Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she’s assigned as Eric’s class partner. He won’t help, let alone talk to her, but she’s determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he’s strived to hide.

 I have updated my Author Facebook Page as well–representing this upcoming release–so check it out here. And, as always, there will be the latest information (even extras) on those pages.

This is what the book jacket looks like. Back cover and all.
