Reveal Thursday: Pygmalia Cover


TADA!!! This is the cover for my new book that should be coming out Spring 2014. I'm not going to reveal everything yet about the book but I did get a lot of inspiration from classics like The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Frankenstein, Peter Pan, and The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen. My biggest inspiration however was the story of Pygmalion who created a sculpture of a woman, only to fall in love with it. This Greek myth inspired many of the stories we have in literature about a creator and his/her creation. George Bernard Shaw’s play, Pygmalion, also deals with the psychological connotations about what it means to have a hand in changing someone and what it means to be the one being changed. I go into some of these themes in the book.
