I had ambitions of letting my photographer do a photo shoot with a model based on my guidance to come up with a cover photo for Falling Ash. I planned to essentially design and format the cover myself like I’ve done with my previous book covers. As I was approaching the end of writing the first draft of Falling Ash, though, I began to stress about not even having started the process of getting the cover ready.
Then I found my new favorite graphic designer who also serves as her own photographer: Marisa at Cover Me Darling.
Marisa designed a cover from one of her photos that ended up being absolutely perfect for this book, and when I saw it and the other work she had done, I knew I had to work with her. All thoughts of doing my own cover went out the window. All the stress of not even having a photoshoot scheduled was gone. Within a day or two of getting Marisa the information she needed to complete the cover, I had a final product that I couldn’t be happier with.
I’m thrilled to finally show you how it turned out. Here is the cover for Falling Ash, a Dark Dystopian Romance, coming exclusively to Kindle on August 11, 2016.
