I just updated my photos using the professional ones taken by Infiity Images. A local artist working in a converted barn/photo studio, Heather Byrd is a wonderful photographer and has done justice to the photos. Hope you like them.
Today I received an illustration of my book cover, McDuffie Gets Into Trouble. The artists at Tate Publishing are absolutely wonderful. My production supervisor, Kim, has done a remarkable job keeping everyone on track with several email messages back and forth to make sure the character designs are just perfect. I would love to give you a cheat peek... Alas! cannot do that.
I also received the proofs of my back cover photograph. Heather makes even this ol' lady look relatively decent. Thanks, Heather!
This past week I've had the pleasure of meeting Heather, my cover photographer. Such a wonderfully beautiful woman; both successful and professional. Johnny and I met at her studio in McBee in a converted barn on the property (for those not familiar with McBee, it's just "up the road apiece"). After choosing several changes of clothing, I decided on an office-type look that makes me look uber smart! You will have to decide later on when the photos are placed here on the web and on Facebook. In any case, having had the headshot photos taken granted me a feeling of excitement as I get closer and closer to the finished book. I should have the first printed book copy by the end of September for final proofing. This process is so educational and invigorating... almost makes me want to write my second book right now!
