Sneaking Unseen

Er, no, that should be Seeking Unseen. But what I'm doing today is giving some "sneak" peeks from the interior and cover art of Seeking Unseen :).

(You may roll your eyes and groan now.)

First, the "scene break" art. That's the little doohickey that goes in between scenes inside chapters. Some books just put an extra space between the paragraphs. Some put a basic symbol or whatnot. Some, like me, put actual images.

In Finding Angel, that image was a key.

With Seeking Unseen, I couldn't decide between two elements from the story I thought were cool. So I decided to use them both:

Nope, not gonna tell you the significance. Gotta read it yourself and find out :P.

I do want to give a hint of the cover, though. It is only a portion. We're still in the building stages, so I'm cropping what I have down to one corner. I leave it to you to guess what this is:

Another tiny peek, to show that I am using the keyhole from the cover of Finding Angel on this book, too:

Just so you know, the amazing and talented Keven Newsome (author of Winter) and his wife DeAnna Newsome (of Newsome Creative) are doing the actual cover design. I did some drawings, and scribbled out a concept layout, but they are doing the real work!

So? So? Whatcha think?

I won't say what I think it is but do want to say I LOVE the color of the background! And I really like those objects:) I can't wait to see the cover and read the book!!!

Love you,

I love the background color, too!

(And you, too, Mom :).

I'm guessing it's a hinge. Don't know why you'd have that on the book, but that's my guess.

I like it, btw. Iguana and Mrs. Iguana do awesome work, says the voice of experience.

Good guess, Turtle.

And they did an AWESOME job on your cover! :)
