Catch a Falling (Paperback) and Put It in Your Pocket

This is just a quick update to let you know that How a Star Falls is now available in paperback format! It's currently $6.64 on Amazon - the perfect little weekend treat or stocking stuffer (for you early Christmas shoppers). :)

Here's a glimpse at the full cover, designed by the amazing Lena Goldfinch of Stone Lily Design:


I think I'm in love! ♥

I adore the font treatment on the back cover, and how Lena structured the blurb.

Also, here's a little fun fact about the front cover:


Notice the stars on the bottom half of the cover? In the initial mock-up, the stars are scattered. I asked Lena in a comment on our Secret Pinterest Board:

I like the added stars around the title! I would love to have three stand out, as I'm planning on referencing Orion's belt, and there are the three "stars" (star systems) that stand out there.

And Lena (being the fabulous friend and designer that she is!) made my wish come true. See how the stars on the final version form a three-star line ending in the star that the model is "holding"? That's a nod to Orion's Belt, Brielle's constellation. :) It's all in the details, right?

I've ordered some of my own copies (including three to be set aside for the giveaway winners), and I'm so looking forward to holding this book in my hands!

  2. The cover is beautiful - I've had a thing for Orion ever since I read L.M. Montgomery's Pat of Silverbush series. ;)

    1. Thank you so much! While I'm not familiar with that story, I imagine it's got to be good if L.M. Montgomery wrote it. :) I'm curious how Orion ties in!
