Greetings! Queen here, with a special post in store. Today I’m am honored to help fellow author and poet Aray Brown by hosting the cover reveal of her upcoming novella Next of Kin:Blood is Thicker Than Water.
But before we get to the visuals, let’s talk a bit of bio.
Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, Aray Brown emerged as a bright eyed scribe at an early age, which began her journey to self discovery. Her short stories consisted of characters such as She-ra and He-man. Later on she decided to delve into something more real and personal. She always had a passion for storytelling even though she couldn’t express it verbally. After dabbling in other areas, she found her true calling and vowed to share her gift with the rest of the world.
Just like every other kid that grew up on Stephen King and Alfred Hitchcock, she became obsessed with horror. Most importantly gore. While she has different genres in mind for her next up and coming projects, her love of gruesome tales will always be eternal.
What inspired the cover to Next of Kin?
The original cover just came to me when I was knee deep in the story. I wanted it to be more gruesome looking (a thick trail of black blood, leading up to a woman’s corpse and the K carved in her) lol but I’m not knocking this cover at all. Less is more.
The story however, was originally a script I was working on before I even started converting it. I remember thinking “this should be a book”. That was back when I was a little confused on which path I should take (screenwriting or novel writing). I just went with my gut and haven’t regretted since.
Without further delay, here is what all have been waiting for: the cover of the upcoming novella Next of Kin: Blood is Thicker Than Water
. It was created by All Authors Graphic Design
