Book cover illustration for The Raptor
Posted 6 months ago and submitted by Rachel Perciphone | Share link:

I was recently commissioned to create book cover illustrations (front and back) for The Raptor (The First Book of Cataclysm), by G.A. Finocchiaro. The Raptor is described as a supernatural ghost love story that is dark, but with a glimmer of hope. This is my third published cover for Finocchiaro and as always, it was a fun, collaborative commission that we are both proud of! This new book will be available 7/27/2021. Here is the synopsis:

The world went mad when Tony lost Jacinda. She was the love of his life, an enigmatic musician he thought he knew everything about—but her dark secrets left him with more questions than answers.

Unravelling the past with his therapist opened cracks inside his wounded heart and mind, unleashing a night full of terrors. Were they real? Was his mind finally coming undone?

The Thirteen — a collective of mythological gods — are hunting Tony. Led by a vicious stranger named Malus, the Thirteen are on the cusp of fulfilling a mysterious plan when Tony falls into their malicious crosshairs. To survive, Tony must dig through his own secrets to unlock the truth, which includes a return to the site of his worst nightmares: Grace Falls, Pennsylvania, where Tony met and lost Jacinda.

But Tony’s not alone — the five voices in his head are there to guide him.

Working with Rachel was a fun and professional experience. She has top tier talent, and worked with me to produce eye-catching illustrations for my books. I receive compliments on them all the time, which has become a point of pride for me and representing the quality of my own work beneath the cover. I would never work with anyone else.
