Oh gosh this cover was a doozy!! I really underestimated how time consuming those flowers would be! But I'm happy with how it turned out and learned some new techniques in the process!
Effloresce means to bloom or burst forth and this chapter is all about vulnerability as feelings and secrets burst out. We'll be learning about Sulvain and a lot about Raziol with some big reveals about his childhood. We're also gonna be seeing a little more about the murder mystery, and learning more about Cyrille and Elouan.
This chapter gets pretty spicy, so it does warrant a 16+ rating. It wont be graphic but it's not a fade to black scenario either haha~ We were debating for a long time how to do these scenes because we do want to keep it suitable for a YA audience. But we're not sure where the line is sometimes, it seems every publisher is different when it comes to intimate scenes. Either way, it's an important scene and we want to do it justice, regardless of how it ends up being rated :3
Can't wait! We hope you all enjoy this chapter! It's a real doozy! <3 <3 <3
