Cover of the Day: Touched

Touched by Cyn Balog

When I saw this image as a thumbnail I thought it was a picture of a big tree with thick branches reaching towards the sky. It's hard to believe that now that I've seen the image full size and can see all of its smallest and most beautiful details.

I love the combination of beauty and eeriness in this image. The coloring gives it this middle of the night creepy feeling, and the boy's posture seems very sinister. The weather is also very foreboding. I can see the fog hanging in the sky, floating just above the ground; feel the weight of it all around me. In contrast with all of that, there is this delicate beauty of the ribbon-like shapes that seem to be coming off of the boy's body and floating through the sky around him.

Any thoughts?


  1. Love this cover! Very intriguing.

    1. Glad you like it! It's about a boy who hears voices in his head and does whatever they say. At least, that's the basic drift. The synopsis on Goodreads makes it sound really interesting.
