Cover Crush: Nocte by Courtney Cole
I haven’t been this excited over a cover in awhile. Why is that you ask? For starters, the cover is gorgeous and immediately sucks you in and if that isn’t enough this letter to the reader penned by the cunning Ms. Cole, will. And if you are as intrigued as we are by Nocte than be sure to sign up here to get clues and sneak peeks all leading up to its exciting release on November 3rd.
The night is always darkest before the dawn.
This is where the darkness begins.
Note from Courtney Cole:
I once considered not writing this story. It was too dark, too twisted, too much, too, too, too.
Obviously, I changed my mind. But I re-wrote in four different ways first, trying to make it different, more easily palatable, softer.
It didn’t work.
So I went back to my original idea, the idea that I loved. The idea that I dreamed about and lived and breathed until it was done the way I wanted it, the way it has to be.
I know you’re capable of reading it. I know you’re capable of putting yourselves back together again when it’s all over. I have faith in you.
Is this story dark?
It is twisted?
Will it slap you in the face?
Will it have you flipping the pages, trying to figure it out, trying to get to the climax, trying to breathe?
God, I hope so.
I wrote this story the way it needed to be written. I couldn’t sugarcoat it. I couldn’t water it down. It is this way because the story demands it.
I’m not sorry.
