Laura Howard: COVER REVEAL: Precise by Rebecca Berto


COVER REVEAL: Precise by Rebecca Berto

Known for her fantastic blog about all things books and writing ~Novel Girl
Rebecca Berto writes stories that straddle the line between Literary and Tear Your Heart Out (invented the genre herself). Her average reading session lasts for hours—somehow always after ten pm. She’s strangely imaginitive, spends too much time on her computer, and is certifiably crazy when she works on her fiction.

Rebecca lives in Melbourne, Australia with her partner and their doggy.

 I'm pleased to introduce the second in my trio of cover reveals, 
Precise (book 1 in the Pulling Me Under series) by Rebecca Berto.

How Silviya and I came up with the idea for the cover:

I told Silviya that I wanted a woman reflecting on something that would show a connection to a child. I came up with a drawing that unfortunately looked something like a five-year-old drew, but she suggested great ideas. The broken glass and the “blue” look to the image is all her.

I wanted to show how the title, Precise fit into this cover too. So to show this I asked Silviya to have Precise cracked.

The result is literally a picture that tells a story. It shows the broken, emotional kind of story this book is about. I sort of stare at it all day long.

Cover designer:
Silviya Yordanova as “Morteque”

Book description:

Katie Anselin is a newlywed and her hubby, Paul, is her life. He’s the only one who knows her family's history and makes her finally feel happy—until the day she discovers she’s fallen pregnant.

See, before Katie had her first best friend, she'd been taught by her mom that she killed her siblings—that she was the cause of mother Rochelle’s miscarriages. Katie has grown up thinking she shouldn't be happy when she's caused her mom so much pain.

Still, Katie can’t imagine killing the beautiful life inside her, which occurs at the same time Rochelle starts skipping her medication. Hell hath no fury like Rochelle with a vengeance to make Katie pay for ruining her life.

In Rochelle's quest for power, Katie and Paul’s baby is the pawn.
