Cover Reveal: The Picture of Dulce Garcia by Alana Albertson

The Picture of Dulce Garcia (The Coven #1)

Release Date: Fall 2013

Summary from Goodreads:
Dulce Garcia, star of The Coven, would rather spend her days sketching dresses.
Instead, she works to support her family and dreams of one day becoming a
fashion designer. After Teen Vogue declares Dulce, “The Hottest Teen in
America,” she is stunned by how amazing she looks in their photo.

At sixteen, Dulce feels the pressure to stay youthful in Hollywood. When Dulce’s
prop Book of Shadows gets destroyed, she substitutes her favorite Victorian
Anthology, opened to Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, and says her spell
during the shoot over the anthology. Afterwards, in her trailer, she discovers
that she has transformed into her Teen Vogue picture, and her real body is
completely airbrushed. Can she break the curse or will she remain locked
forever in a picture?

  1. I love the cover. This sounds like an interesting read but I don't know how I'd feel if I was stuck with all that make-up on my face.

    1. Thank you Michele - Dorian Gray is my favorite book! I started writing this book when I was a high school teacher trying to get my students interested in reading Wilde's book!

  5. "The Picture of Dorian Gray" is one of my favorite books, so the title of this novel immediately caught my attention. The cover is really beautiful, too, with that South American vibe to it.
