Blog Tour: Colonization - Guest Post - Aubrie Dionne

Symbolism in the Cover of Colonization

When I first saw my cover for Colonization: Paradise Reclaimed, I melted into my computer keyboard. I was amazed, impressed, excited. It represented my book so well, I could tell Inkspell Publishing had put a lot of thought into what they wanted to portray. Colonization is so much more than typical teen romance, and this cover bypasses that whole aspect, highlighting the sci fi element in the story. It’s intelligent, mysterious, and alluring. Everything I could have wanted to represent my book.

Without going into too much detail, because that would give away spoilers, I can say the cover represents a crucial element of the plot, a defining factor in Andromeda’s decisions. This time it’s not evil aliens they need to worry about. And that’s all I can say about that!

To me, the globe on the cover represents a whole new world to explore, but also the bubble Andromeda has lived in all her life on her colony ship. Colonization: Paradise Reclaimed is a coming of age story that’s all about redefining boundaries, and the right to choose your own path.

Author Bio:

Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation--favorite character was Data by far--and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.

Aubrie wrote in her junior high yearbook that she wanted to be “a concert flutist” when she grew up. She majored in flute performance at the University of New Hampshire on a full scholarship, then secured two teaching jobs at a University and a local community music school. While playing in orchestras and teaching, stories popped into her head, and she used them to make the music come alive for her flute students. Her students said they were so good, she had to write them down! Maybe they were right, who knows? Two careers seems to keep her busy. For now.

She is represented by Dawn Dowdle and writes sweet and adventurous fantasy, science fiction, and contemporary romance.
