So, I know what you’re thinking…what does one wear when they’re the model for their own book cover?
A really cute Old Navy dress of course! Unless you’re a guy.
Since my husband and I started our own company to publish Let Me Fall, the burden of the book cover fell on our shoulders (as did everything else). We were thrilled to find an excellent graphic artist whose style seemed to be exactly what we were looking for, but we’d learned from previous attempts that finding an appropriately-posed female silhouette was similar to finding a needle in a haystack. Impossible.
Enter: The really cute Old Navy dress, our living room wall, and a wrinkly green screen.
Thank God the front cover only needed a silhouette! (The non-Instagram version of this picture is even more dreadful.)
I’d love to hear from you guys this week. Please feel free to share any questions you may have about publishing your own book, creating cover art, my writing process, etc. And don’t forget each comment (or share on Facebook and twitter) enters you in the drawing for your very own copy of Let Me Fall (winner announced Friday, May 3rd).
Join me tomorrow for a special interview with someone very integral to the making of Let Me Fall!
