It’s always fun when an author gets the opportunity to be involved in the creation of her own book covers.
I actually found the perfect model for my HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN series via a stock photo service. What a high it was to find the perfect model who embody the humor, spunk and beauty of my heroine, assassin and mother Donna Stone!
Turns out the picture was one taken in a fairly large photo shoot, so there were enough poses for several covers, which I passed along to my cover art director, Andrew Brown of Click Twice Design. He went through them, then listened to what I had to say about the story and my vision for her, and voila! Donna came to life just as I imaged her.
Book 5, The Housewife Assassin’s Vacation to Die, will be released in August, and Book 6, The Housewife Assassin’s Recipes for Disaster, comes out in mid-November. Andy just completed the cover for both. Just looking at both of them inspire me as I write them!
It turns out that Aida is from Bosnia, and has over 28,000 followers from all over the world.
We truly live in a global village.
Of course, I friended her. When she saw the covers we’d created, she told me she was honored.
Obviously the feeling is mutual.
Feel free to friend her, too, or to comment on her blog. And do tell her how much you love the Housewife Assassin series. I think she’d get a big kick out of it.
