Have a look at the book trailer & let me know what you think:
Velvet was initially published by Bloomsbury as a trade paperback last September and is released again today as a normal paperback with a new cover.
Which cover do you prefer? I really like the original cover, the candle fits well with the atmosphere of the story and makes me think of night time and creepy dark places like where Madame Savoya holds her seances. I think I actually prefer the new cover though, I love the blue colour and the way that Velvet is highlighted against the shadowy background. Velvet looks just how I pictured her as I was reading the story and I love it when the cover model actually looks like the main character.
If you're a fan of historical fiction, have even the slightest interest in seances or have any curiosity about the tricks mediums can use to make people believe them then I'd definitely recommend picking up a copy of Velvet.
