Today I have a very awesome cover reveal!!! This is a cover reveal for the recently released cover of Open Heart by Emlyn Chand! Open Heart is the second book in the Farsighted series. Also a few weeks before the Open Heart cover was revealed, Emlyn also revealed a NEW cover for Farsighted ! So I'm going to show you Open Heart first, then the new Farsighted cover (:




Coming May 2012

Simmi Shergill’s life is a mess. Her powers of psychic feeling are on the fritz, and Grandon Township’s sudden population boom has brought quite a few unsavory characters to town. She also looks like an over-blown balloon in her size 14 pants, but not even starving herself seems to be working as a diet plan. Well, at least her boyfriend, Alex, loves her so much he’d do anything for her. Last summer he even risked his life to protect her from the mysterious boy everyone was convinced wanted to kill her. 

The problem is, she’s not so sure she feels the same way. Is Alex really the man of her dreams? And why can’t she stop fixating on her would-be killer, Dax? Whenever he’s around, part of her wants to run screaming in the other direction while the other part longs to run into his embrace, no matter who she’d hurt or what she’d risk. 

Simmi’s loyalty is on the line. Who will she choose—the blind seer who loves her, or the charming telekinetic with “bad idea” written all over him? Emotions run high as the tension mounts in book two of the Farsighted series.

Ahhh I love it!!! It looks just plain amazing! I love the shattered looking chakras on the right. I love the stars around the cover, and I think my favorite part of this cover is the font for 'Open Heart' It looks so awesome! Anyways all together this is a great cover, I know Emlyn and the cover artist had a tough time doing this cover since Simmi the main character is Indian, so trying to find a cover model took some time, but I gotta say the girl they have looks great for Simmi! (Especially with how Simmi is in book 2..muahah yes I have had sneak peeks at what is happening in Open Heart! :P)

Now for the Farsighted cover, below on the left (the black and white cover) is the OLD Farsighted cover, on the right is the NEW Farsighted cover!!

See my review of Farsighted HERE

Alex Kosmitoras's life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead broke and insanely overprotective, and to complicate matters even more, he's blind. Just when he thinks he'll never have a shot at a normal life, an enticing new girl comes to their small Midwest town all the way from India. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Sophomore year might not be so bad after all. 

Unfortunately, Alex is in store for another new arrival—an unexpected and often embarrassing ability to "see" the future. Try as he may, Alex is unable to ignore his visions, especially when they suggest Simmi is in mortal danger. With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex embarks on his journey to change the future.

The new cover is obiviously AWESOME!! It looks so professional and just flat out amazing! (:

I like the cover, I just think its a little busy. You know.
Then again it does draw attention to the reader, however, I am fondly of the simple elegant sort of deal, such as Alender's Bad Girl's Die Die cover.
