The free novella is available now. DO NOT read Elixir if you have not read Deity. It will spoil Deity for you and not to mention, you will have no idea what is going on.

Cover reveal: OPAL by Jennifer L. Armentrout

No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger... and they know it.

Follow this link to an ~~~ EPIC CONTEST ~~~ Announcement. You will want to bookmark this page!

USA TODAY Bestselling author, Jennifer L. Armentrout, lives in Martinsburg, West Virginia. All the rumors you’ve heard about her state aren’t true. When she’s not hard at work writing, she spends her time reading, working out, watching really bad zombie movies, pretending to write, and hanging out with her husband and her Jack Russell, Loki. Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class where she spent most of her time writing short stories….which explains her dismal grades in math. Jennifer writes young adult paranormal, science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary romance. She also writes adult romance under the name J. Lynn.

Find Jennifer on: Twitter | Facebook | Goodreads | Website | Blog


What do you think of the cover? Isn't it beautiful and eerie? It's easily my favorite among all of the Lux book covers! I also love this a lot more than the old red placeholder that's still floating around (because blue is my favorite color)


Psst, check out the giveaway for OPAL hosted by 365 Books A Year!

Entries for Sweet Hope Cover Design Contest!

(Clicky image to head over to where the contest is held!)

Main post: Clicky

  • all entries must be submitted until August 22nd (Wednesday)
  • Contest is open International! 
All cover design entries will be uploaded and organized on a pinterest board and on facebook so that everyone can see them for the voting process! 

Note: Paint and Gimp are free photo editing programs you can use to design a cover. Of course, there’s Photoshop, the queen of programs. You can also just choose an image you think is perfect for the Sweet Hope cover, if you truly cannot use any of those programs. You do NOT need to to use Stock Images, own artwork is very welcome! But, you must own the rights  to use any of the images you use to design the cover!

Here are my entries! :)
Version 1

Version 2

Stock photo of the girl: Perfume7 by faestock
Photo of guy: I no longer have the link but I found it  from an old folder of images I saved. I think it was from MorgueFiles.

*The covers were just created for a fan contest and not for commercial use. No copyright infringement intended!


I've been waiting for the opportunity to use the gorgeous photo by faestock since I first saw it ages ago! So when the contest popped up I immediately choose that! Due to my lack of skills I wasn't able to edit her hair to the really light blonde like the girl on the cover of Sweet Evil had from the original red of the model's hair. (See here and here

I tried my best to match the original cover of Sweet Evil  because I'm OCD about having matching book covers and the first cover sort of reflects the events at the end of the book one. If you've read it you know what happens. >.<  For the 'hope' in the title I emphasized the rose the girl (Anna) holds in her hands near her heart to give her sort of a hopeful/wishful feel. It won't be such 'sweet hope' with the guy leaving huh? o.o I know the cover doesn't really have to match the title at all but I like the little bits of symbolism. 

Initially I only planned to submit the first design but after playing around with it more I made the solo girl version! Because there's a lot more space of the second cover I decided to touch up on the play of darkness and light to make it look more dramatic. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. :)
