    I have been dying for this book. The cover is so beautiful and I love the story line. I just read your interview on the My Favorite Things Contest and I want it even more. The other books and swag doesn’t hurt either. But signed would mean so much more!!

    What generous giveaways!

    This isn’t my genre but I wanted to say how much I enjoy your website and the cover of “Luminous.”
    My own novel comes out in Nov and I haven’t gotten to the cover selection process yet but yours certainly gets my attention.
    Mike

  10. Dawn Metcalf says:

    Thank you! The cover art is something that is entirely up to marketing and authors rarely get a say in the process. I was fortunate to have a talented artist assigned to my book and an editor with a vision. It is certainly a stunning cover that had lots of people excited about the book and that is exactly the purpose of cover art.

    Good luck!!!
