Here’s a cropped version of the latest cover for Eric Edstrom’s dystopian series The Scion Chronicles! This will be the upcoming second book, titled Child of Lies, and features the Belle :) 
Book One focused on Jacey, and I loved creating details that would differentiate the characters. If interested, you can head over Eric Edstrom’s site and check out Daughter of Nothing.

Happy April - keep a close eye on those pranksters ;)
April is the fourth month of the year. It was originally called Aprilis by the Romans possibly named after the Greek goddess Aphrodite. Aprilis also meant “to open” alluding to the seasonal blossoming of flowers and trees around springtime. It’s a time of planting and spring cleaning.

After July, April is the second rainiest month of the year bringing about the popular expression “April showers bring May flowers.”

April’s birthstone is the diamond symbolizing purity and love. Its birth flower is the daisy, often connected with innocence and gentleness.
April is the month of April Fools’ Day, Earth Day on the 22nd, Easter Sunday (though not always), Poetry Month, Frog Month, Tweed Day on the 3rd, and International Dance Day on the 29th. April babies are meant to be active, attention seeking, friendly, hasty, adventurous, and loving.

March! The third month of the year and the beginning of spring and autumn (in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere respectively).  March was originally the first month in the calendar, and certain cultures still celebrate it as the beginning of the New Year. It was originally named “Martius” after Mars, the Roman god of war and agriculture, because it began the season for both farming and warfare. The Anglo-Saxons called the month “Hlyd monath” meaning Stormy month. In many languages including Ukrainian, Czech, and Slovene, March was named after the birch tree.One of March’s birthstones is the aquamarine symbolizing courage. Its flower, the daffodil, represents rebirth and new beginnings.March includes the Equinox Earth Day, Women’s History Month, Saint Patrick’s Day, Pi Day, Save a Spider Day, World Math Day, and Waffle Day. Happy birthday to those born in March - you are meant to be generous, sensitive, observant, serene, moody, musically gifted, and trustworthy!

"February"


February - the month I always misspelled. Though originally the last month of the calendar, it’s now the second (and shortest) month. Initially called Februarius, it was named after the Latin term februum meaning purification. It stems from the mid-month purification ritual Februa. 
The many names of February are quite fun. The Anglo Saxons called February Sol-monath meaning cake-month, because cakes were offered to the gods (on the other hand, it was also traditionally called Kale-monath). The Finnish term for February is helmikuu meaning ‘month of the pearl’, because droplets of snow falling from trees resembled pearls. Being the shortest month, February was known in Welsh as y mis bach (the little month). 
Its birthstone is the amethyst symbolizing humility, spiritual wisdom, sincerity and quick-wittedness. February’s birth flower, the violet, represents faithfulness, modesty and virtue.
Of course, St Valentines Day is celebrated in February (an old tradition was that the first man an unmarried woman saw on 14th February would be her future husband), along withGroundhog Day, Leap Day every four years, African American History Month, Snack Food Month, Bird Feeding Month, and Chocolate Lover’s Month. Happy birthday Februarians - you are meant to be clever, temperamental, humble, sensitive, daring, stubborn, and have a love for leisure and entertainment :)
