This is a great cover. Who would not want to read it?

Even cliches have their place...especially with cover art, when you have so little time to convey information (visually) to someone deciding whether to buy or not.

Blue Third - Citlalli and The Destroyer
Blue Third- The Cocoa War
Check out my first two Blue Third YA novels and their covers, especially the Cocoa War. My attempt at a 21st Century pulp like cover. I can say that Middle Schoolers to Adult love them! Here's what the first is about:
Blue Third - Citlalli and the Destroyer is a space adventure with a highly unique, unabashedly fun and exciting story. The novel is a coming of age adventure that takes seven teenagers from different cultures, one from 5,000 years ago, and throws them into unbelievable adventures on which the fate of Earth, our own galaxy and neighboring galaxies rests. The audience for Citlalli and the Destroyer is everyone from the age of 8-80 as the story is easy to read, fast-paced, while intellectually challenging and entertaining throughout. Its literary goal was to combine educational elements including history and modern social issues, within the kind of truly fun and entertaining novel I loved when growing up and still enjoy today. It brings fun to the often stodgy science fiction world, offering a refreshing new story free of vampires or wizards. The story begins by introducing Citlalli in her native Mexico of 5,000 years ago. After inadvertently becoming a stowaway on a cocoa trader's interstellar vessel, and for reasons the novel makes clear, she ends up being teamed with six every day teenagers of today. They come from different cultures and families, and along with Citlalli and a group of some of the strangest intelligent alien allies imaginable are thrust into journeys that will determine the fate of everyone's civilizations in battling a monstrously evil entity called The Destroyer. The adventurers include five girls and two boys, each arriving with their own personality and cultural background. The journey forces them to grow strong, learn to trust, and even learn to endure pain and horror. They learn about friendship, courage, strength, sacrifice and more. The novel's strengths are its unique ideas, original story, page-turning excitement and the kind of cinematic climax and surprise ending that leaves the reader happy and hoping for more.
