cover reveal: the reflections

I jolted awake this morning to the garbage truck growling into our cul-de-sac (considering our bins weren’t out yet, it was quite the race over the dewy concrete in my slippers… before I realized the truck was actually a yard waste collector – blessed revelation that came a little too late). But, as I was walking back to the house, anticipating the wall heater that would greet me by the front door, the feeling washed over me that despite my less-than-lovely a.m. escapade, it was actually a very beautiful, sunny morning. And so it is – the skies are clear, the air is crisp and very cold, and every breath out of doors is like inhaling the invigorating aroma of life.

How fitting, on such a gorgeous day, to have the privilege of sharing with you the gorgeous cover for E.K. Seaver’s upcoming book.

I have been looking forward to The Reflections ever since I met E.K. a few years ago, and saw the intriguing graphics for her character, Em Gades, on one of her blogposts. I am beyond thrilled that it’s almost here! – and that I get to be a part of revealing its captivating book cover.

But first, a bit about the book…


Everyone in the Alliance knows about the Reflections. It’s the opportunity to get into the University, the only government-recognized form of education, and those accepted are guaranteed success and comfort for the rest of their lives. Thus, when Em Gades receives the silver invitation, her future is secured. The worst that could happen is she gets sent home, right?

Until she arrives, and the rumors about the Reflections prove true. The only way to live is to get into the University, and to do that you must be one of the four remaining Chosens at the end of the competition. Although she was warned beforehand to trust no one, Em quickly forms attachments to her fellow teammates with the hope that as many of them can survive as possible. However, as Chosens are rapidly executed for failing competitions, Em struggles to understand that, if God is real, why he would let something so terrible happen to a group of mostly innocent teenagers. With likely no more than a few days left to live, she and the other Chosens must navigate life or death situations and find answers to the question:

Are their lives worth the deaths of others?


And a bit about the author…

To find an E. K. Seaver, you must set a trap. The best option is to lure her in using chocolate, blankets, and a typewriter, but if none of those are on hand, spare books and Broadway music can be easily substituted.
She prefers to be wild and free, though. Whether it includes adventuring through the Rocky Mountains or curled up at a local bookshop, she uses her freedom to produce art. From books to scarves to paintings, Ms. Seaver strives to honor her King in every aspect of her creative works. She desires her stories to hold a meaning beyond the tale and attempts to follow in the footsteps of storytellers who came before her.

THE REFLECTIONS!!

Isn’t it just b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l., friends?

All the alluring, shimmery, dystopic vibes are just perfection. I could stare at it all day…


There we have it, folks. A lovely author releasing a lovely book with a lovely cover. I am so excited to finally read this novel coming out June 2022. If you haven’t already, and are interested in the book, I’d highly encourage you to go and follow E.K. on her blog, Facebook, and Instagram to keep up to date with the release. I think it’ll be worth your while.


Well, that’s that. Thanks for taking the time out of your day to scroll through this post.

Until the morrow, then!
