My Cover Reveal 4 MARKED BEAUTY & A Giveaway!

Today's the day, where I get to share the cover of my young adult novel! Now some of you might remember that when the cover to my middle grade novel Motley Education was released I named the cover - Daphne. *cheeky grin* Well, I've decided to name my YA cover Sophie. Why? I'm really not sure. It just looked like a Sophie to me. Any hoot, ready to meet Sophie???

Just scroll down ...







Marked Beauty by S.A. Larsen (That's me!)
Publisher: Ellysian Press
Release Date: October 2017

Uncovering hidden secrets can sometimes kill you . . . or worse, steal your soul.

Anastasia Tate has a secret. She can feel the emotions of others through their life energy auras. Not a welcome gift for a teenager. Especially when a sinister presence begins stalking her.

Viktor Castle also has a secret. He’s tasked with protecting humanity yet cursed by an ancient evil to destroy it.

After Viktor saves Ana’s life, her abilities grow stronger. Drawn together, she senses Viktor has answers to lifelong questions. Only he shuns her at every turn, knowing he has saved her only to put her in more danger.

As Ana struggles with her attraction to Viktor, he tries everything to bury his unexpected feelings for her. But they must find a middle ground. For only together can they combat the dark forces threatening both their lives . . . and their souls.

I'd love it if you'd add Marked Beauty to your TBR list!

Thank you so much for any support you can offer up! Now - Truth: What do you think of MB's cover?


  1. Now that I can see it up close, very cool! Dig the details in the background. Will Tweet for you.

    1. Thank you, Alex!

      And I know what you mean about the background. It bleeds onto the back and gives a garden path scene leading away from the building. :)

  2. Congrats on the cover reveal! Off to share on Twitter :)

  3. It's about time this book saw the light of day! I'm so excited for you Sheri, and what an awesome cover!

    1. Haha! I know, right? And I think we're going to keep the story going so ... that could be cool. :) And the cover really does capture the theme of the main character. She's trapped by life in so many ways and just wants to break free, but breaking free can sometimes be painful and cause different scars. Anyway, once people read the book they'll understand the cover.

  4. What a beautiful cover! Congrats!

  5. <3 your cover. I've added it to my TBR list. Will it be an audiobook?

    1. Thank you! I believe so; just not sure when. :)

  6. ooh pick me, pick me! I can't wait to read the final incarnation!

    1. Oh gosh, Marcy; I know, right. You literally were my first guinea pig. The book is totally different from what you'd originally read. Thank God! I still can't believe you trudged through all the horrible wordage I'd written back then. You are a trooper! The only elements that still remain in the story are Ana and Viktor, only Viktor's not that supernatural dude like he was. He's something, just not that. :)

  7. Congratulations! Love this cover and will definitely be reading this one... Summer's coming, so I'll have time to READ! :) Christy
