"The Advent" Cover History


 

The Advent (also known as Passion Forsaken) has a long and varied book cover history.

 

The first book in the Collective Obsessions Saga began with the following cover (my design) back in 2001:

Needless to say, the first two renderings were issued long before I decided to write the Collective Obsessions Saga using the pseudonym Deidre Dalton.

 

My preference? It's a toss-up between the fourth design and the current paperback cover. I like them both.

Note from Deidre:

Quite frankly, I've always disliked the title "Passion Forsaken." However, through various publishers over the years, the moniker was beyond my control. The book is not a steamy romance in typical Harlequin fashion, nor is it a fluffy piece about unrequited love. The story actually launches the Collective Obsessions Saga, an eight-part series which follows two Irish families from their arrival in America to the present day. The books weave through more than one hundred forty years of fictional family history filled with avarice, madness, murder, mystery, paranormal activity, romance, self-indulgence and macabre Gothicism. It's hardly light reading.
