Shooting Scars by Karina Halle Cover Reveal


Today I have the great honor of revealing the cover of one my most favorite authors' books.
Karina Halle has a new series called The Artist Trilogy that just started and this is the second installment.
First of all, here is the bad-ass cover:

Shooting Scars by Karina Halle (The Artists Trilogy #2)--Publication date: May, 2013 by Metal Blonde Books
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.

Now I just recently read Sins & Needles (review to come!) and fell in love with it. Halle really has a way with words and character building. Her books are one of a kind and I highly suggest you sweep the first book up ASAP.

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.

Now, in case you do not know anything about this series, here are some links to the first book in The Artist Trilogy:
Goodreads Description:
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.***

I hope you take my advice and pick this beauty up. I love these covers and think they match the theme of the books perfectly.
Thank you to Giselle at Xpresso Blog Tours for setting this up. If you don't follow her yet, you should ;-).

  1. This series sounds pretty intense! The cover is creepy too so I'm kind of surprised to see the blurb saying it's "sexy as hell" but that certainly makes it more interesting.
