A few weeks ago, the beautiful and talented Magaly Guerrero hosted a giveaway of my novel, Phantom, as part of her Sexy, Dark, and Bloody Fiction Party. Stacy, owner of the Magic Love Crow etsy shop, was the lucky winner of the prize pack. When I saw she had an Etsy shop, of course I had to take a peek, and I discovered that Stacy is an amazing artist. When I saw the theme of her original paintings, I had to ask her to be a pat of the Destiny Unveiled release party. I know she paints crows and not ravens, but technically they are related, and her little crows are just too cute to pass up.
There is a very interesting story behind why Stacy began her career as an artist. After a near death experience in 2007, she decided she needed to paint her crows. She had never painted before, but she went with the feeling, and Magic Love Crow was created. Her crows capture the essence of magic, be it the fantasy of fairy tales or the spirit of the native American culture. You can find playful crows, hippie crows, spiritual crows, Goddess crows and so much more.
For our giveaway, Stacy decided to create a crow painting inspired by my book cover. She used the same red and black color scheme, and made the witch crow carry a wand as she casts her spell. She even has long black hair, just like my heroine, Gabriella. I can definitely see this little crow being Gabby's personal totem. Together, Stacy and I decided to name the painting after my novel. So it is officially titled "Destiny Unveiled".
