My Secret Weapon: Cover Designer Adara Rosalie - Guest Blog and Giveaway with E Van Lowe

Ever since the first book in the Falling Angles Saga, Boyfriend From Hell, was published back in 2011, I’ve often been asked "Who does your book covers? They're gorgeous!"  My secret weapon in attracting new readers to the franchise is my friend Jayde, also known as Adara Rosalie.

 Known as Adara Rosalie, Jayde, is a self-taught digital artist living in the Sydney Region of New South Wales, Australia. Her works bring forth the beauty in the dark, strange and Gothic. Her images are beautifully rendered, with a blend of photo manipulation and digital painting that shows off her natural talent for creating new and fantastic visual artworks that are original in concept.

Fast becoming sought after for her particular style, Adara has been commissioned for the design of a number of CD covers, promotional displays, and book covers. She has also been featured in magazines such as Advanced Photoshop (Issue 81), and won numerous awards on artist community websites.

With the up-coming release of Falling (White Whisker Books March 13th 2014) the final book in the Falling Angels Saga, Jayde decided it was time to update the covers for the entire series.  She did this on her own, without any additional charge.  The updated Earth Angel cover is below:

Jayde currently lives in New South Wales, Australia, with her partner, Michael, and is available to add her secret sauce to your book covers or any other art project you may have.  You can find her here:

For those of you who haven’t read Boyfriend From Hell, Earth Angel or Heaven Sent, judging from the reviews, what’s between the covers is pretty good, too.  I hope you’ll check them out.

Falling Angels Saga
Book Four
E Van Lowe

Genre: Paranormal YA

Think twice before you agree to marry Satan. There’s no divorcing the devil.

The End is Near

Will Megan Barnett go falling back into the arms of dreamy earth angel, Guy Matson? Or, is she in fact, falling in love with the demon, Orthon?  Or, will her out-of-control abilities send her falling into Satan’s open arms?

In the final, heart-stopping chapter of the Falling Angels Saga, Megan Barnett is on a quest to rid her life of Satan forever, but Satan has other plans, including a lavish wedding, and he’s willing to destroy her family and everyone she loves to have his way.  To add to the drama, rogue demons have risen from hell with plans of their own.

Will Megan finally have her happily-ever-after, or is she doomed to an eternity in HELL?

As Amanda Ashby, author of Zombie Queen of Newbury High, writes, “E. Van Lowe is a writing force to be reckoned with and you are in masterful hands from the first page to the last.”

Aww, Hell No!

Fifteen year-old Megan Barnett and her single mom, Suze, have a special relationship—they are friends, close friends, who do almost everything together.

“But come on, guys, she’s my mother… Can I really tell her that while we’re snuggled up on the sofa watching Spider Man Three, I’m secretly undressing James Franco with my eyes?  Of course not…”

The special bond takes a turn for the worse when Suze decides to start dating again.  She hasn’t had a man in her life since Megan’s father left ten years ago. 

Enter two mysterious young men, Megan’s new classmate, sinfully attractive bad boy, Guy Matson, and the dangerously handsome art dealer, Armando.  Before long Megan and Suze both wind up in steamy relationships.  But neither of the handsome guys is quite what he seems.  In fact, one of them is Satan, with his sights set on a new bride.  Megan has precious little time to figure out how to stop him.  If she doesn’t, either Megan or Suze are quite literally going to HELL.
