Cover Reveal: Shooting Scars by Karina Halle


Today's second cover reveal is for a sequel to a recently released novel titled, Sins and Needles by Karina Halle. I've never heard of Sins and Needles until one day on Twitter when tweets started popping up about its release and how boodnerdigans were so anxious and excited to read it.

I immediately checked it out, of course, and at first it didn't catch my interest but after some of the reviews started floating in with high praise and lots of raving, it seems like something I'd re-consider reading.

Sins & Needles (The Artists Trilogy, #1)Title: Sins and Needles (The Artists Trilogy, #1)
Author: Karina Halle
Publisher: Metal Blonde Books
Release date: January 25, 2013


Ellie Watt is used to starting over. The daughter of a grifting team, Ellie spent her childhood being used as a pawn in her parents' latest scam. Now she’s much older, wiser and ready to give her con artist life a rest. But returning to the dry desert town of Palm Valley, California means one more temptation than she bargained for – Camden McQueen. Once known as the high school weirdo, Camden is bigger and badder than the boy he used to be and a talented tattoo artist with his own thriving business. Ellie’s counting on Camden still being in love with her but what she’s not counting on is how easily unrequited love can turn into obsession over time. When Camden discovers Ellie’s plan to con him, he makes her a deal she doesn’t dare refuse, but her freedom comes with a price and it’s one that takes both Ellie and Camden down a dangerous road.

***The Artists Trilogy is a dark and sexy contemporary ride about three flawed individuals caught in a world where it's so easy to justify the bad things we do. This is a pure adult read (Not YA or NA).

This is the 1st book in the trilogy. It is followed by the novella On Every Street (released in March 2013) and the sequel Shooting Scars (released in May 2013). The third and final book in the series will also be released in 2013.***

Now that you've seen the cover to book one in The Artists Trilogy, I present to you, book two: Shooting Scars!



Title: Shooting Scars (The Artists Trilogy, #2)
Author: Karina Halle
Publisher: Metal Blonde Books
Release date: May 2013
Cover designer: Najla Qamber Designs


A second chance at first love.

There are a few things worth risking everything for - even your life. For Camden McQueen, this is one of them.

Shooting Scars is the second book in The Artists Trilogy and is told from the dual POV of Camden and Ellie.

About the author:

The daughter of a Norwegian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Vancouver, Canada with trolls and eternal darkness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadistic appreciation for freaking people out. Like many of the flawed characters she writes, Karina never knew where to find herself and has dabbled in acting, make-up artistry, film production, screenwriting, photography, travel writing and music journalism. She eventually found herself in the pages of the very novels she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with).

Karina holds a screenwriting degree from Vancouver Film School and a Bachelor of Journalism from TRU. Her travel writing, music reviews/interviews and photography have appeared in publications such as Consequence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNomad Travel Guides. She currently lives on an island on the coast of British Columbia where she's preparing for the zombie apocalypse.
