Cover Spotlight!!!!!!

(+5 in contest if you comment)


TADA!!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't read Changeless (I'm dying to though) and the book cover for Blameless (third book in the Parasol series) is already out. This guys work faast.

Have you ever wondered how they do this beautiful covers? Well, the cover artist is so awesome she made a video of making the cover. Sure the video doesn't take as long as actually making the cover, but you can at least see the works.


There is also a post that goes with this video, I suggest you read it.

And here is a Blameless blurb:

**SPOILERS**

Quitting her husband's house and moving back in with her horrible family, Lady Maccon becomes the scandal of the London season. Queen Victoria dismisses her from the Shadow Council, and the only person who can explain anything, Lord Akeldama, unexpectedly leaves town. To top it all off, Alexia is attacked by homicidal mechanical ladybugs, indicating, as only ladybugs can, the fact that all of London's vampires are now very much interested in seeing Alexia quite thoroughly dead. While Lord Maccon elects to get progressively more inebriated and Professor Lyall desperately tries to hold the Woolsey werewolf pack together, Alexia flees England for Italy in search of the mysterious Templars. Only they know enough about the preternatural to explain her increasingly inconvenient condition, but they may be worse than the vampires -- and they're armed with pesto.

**END SPOILERS**

To tell you the truth I didn't read it. Cause I haven't read Changeless!!! And I don't wanna know...

But on a bright note, do you guys love Gail Carriger? The author of this series? Well she is going to be having tea here at Bloody Bookaholic VERY soon. How soon? Well it's a surprise. And as usual I might be giving away one of her books to a very lucky winner. Her books are to die for, she is that awesome.

The other two books in the series are Soulless and Changeless


Soulless Blurb:

Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she is being rudely attacked by a vampire to whom she has not been properly introduced! Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire, and the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate. With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?


Changeless Blurb:

Alexia Tarabotti, the Lady Woolsey, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears - leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria. But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. Even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only the soulless can. She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.

Enjoy, and READ THEM!
