Wonderful Wednesday: Sarah’s official cover…Choc Lit’s ‘Twilight’

On this rather Wonderful Wednesday, I can share with you the official cover for No such thing as…immortality. Needless to say, I love it!

No such thing as...immortality. Choc Lit's 'Twilight'

No such thing as...immortality. Choc Lit's 'Twilight'

You may note a ‘Twilight-esque’ feel to the design. That’s for good reason. No such thing as…immortality is to be promoted as Choc Lit’s Twilight.

  • As told entirely from the hero’s perspective ― this is vampire, Nathaniel Gray’s story
  • British
  • For grown women

Controversial? Quite possibly, but these days, any powerful first person love story featuring a vampire is likely to attract comparisons with Twilight, no matter the plot or the characters. We therefore decided to embrace such comparisions, particularly as the white rose on the cover couldn’t be more perfect for Nate’s story.

So Choc Lit, the home of the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s, 2012 Romantic Novel of the Year and best New Comer awards (well done again Jane and Evonne!) will now be home to a grown-up and very British, Twilight.

Thank you Choc Lit for having the faith in me and the book to market it this way. And thank you Berni Stevens for the perfect cover. How excited and squealy am I?  And look! That’s my name on there…*squeeeeeeel*

  1. It’s fab, Sarah, very classy and intriguing – can’t wait to read it! Very squeal-worthy! MXXX

  2. I’m not sure – I still think your boys’ designs took some beating… Seriously, Sarah, it’s utterly gorgeous – beautiful colour and that symbolic rose. I’m really looking forwards to reading Nathaniel’s story. Congratulations!

  3. The darkness of vampires mixed with the purity of love (the rose) Berni has got it just right!! Love it! Enjoy your squeal! xx

  4. Bugger work, they can wait – this is important. Beautiful, beautiful cover, Sarah! So looking forward to reading it! In fact, it’s so lovely, I just want to put it on my shelf, facing outwards… x

  5. Thank you so very much guys – glad you like it. This is all now – very real!
    And LOL Juliet – that’s a very good title! And Chris – my boys are keeping very quiet about this cover – not quite what they had in mind :) Classy and intriguing does it for me Margaret. And Mandy – you are so right – Berni has it spot on. Thanks for buggering work Jane – it is beautiful, isn’t it? And yes, facing outwards. To be honest though, I’d just settle for any bookshelves to place it on. All mine have collapsed so at least one has to be sorted before January! I can’t wait for that moment Evonne,. Edits first though…:)

  6. Gorgeous cover, Sarah! Simply superb, and much, much better than Twilight, if I may say so ;-)

  9. Fabulous cover, Sarah, and it’s a great idea to embrace the inevitable comparisons with Twilight and market its differences from that starting point.

  20. LOL What to call you Laura? Violet Elizabeth or Soothsayer Laura? Delighted the cover is clearly working, though :) I wish you could read it now too – would mean the dreaded edits were behind me:) X

  22. Thank you so much Sharon – so pleased you deem it worth the wait:) I am chuffed to bits with it as you can no doubt tell. Thank you again XXX

  23. Ooh it’s gorgeous! I always thought the Twilight covers were lovely pieces of design, and they’ve often been imitated poorly–but this has a really nice twist with the blue background instead of predictable red. Very eye-catching. Love it!

  24. Thank you Kate. Everyone seems to love the blue background – definitely a good choice. X

  25. Thank you Elle – I am so very very pleased with it :) All the best X
