You may remember that earlier this year, I interviewed American author, Shannon Thompson about her paranormal fantasy Minutes Before Sunset. During which, Shannon revealed that some of the themes that were to run through the entire trilogy was light vs dark, and also choice and destiny. It has proven to be a successful first instalment currently boasting 47 5 star reviews on its Goodreads page. Well, I was very honored to be a part in Shannon’s cover reveal of the second instalment, Seconds Before Sunrise, which will be released by AEC Stellar Publishing.
And here it is!
I think the first thing that hits you when first seeing the cover is how vivid the green is. Shannon has revealed that this was done on purpose to reflect the theme of humanity in the book. It is an extremely bold design, if I say so myself.
Have you noticed the colouring of his eyes too? I wonder if the same paranormal elements of the first book will run even deeper in this sequel? If you remember, Shannon rather creatively flipped the traits of light and shade, with Shades representing the good side, and the light representing evil.
It is scheduled for release on March 22nd 2014, which is plenty of time to get familiar with the series (see links below). You can add it to your goodreads shelf here.
Here is the Seconds Before Sunrise synopsis:
